All work and no play can make you cranky, restless, and just plain toxic. So take time off from stress and do something crazy! Enjoy these four adult playgrounds where you can be a kid once again!

If you need to take a break because of office-induced stress but can’t go on a weeklong vacation, visit an adult playground. Your inner child will thank you for this. Here are four places you can relive your carefree childhood days in when the adult world becomes too much.


Face it. It’s been a long time since you were allowed to go inside those pits of balls often seen in popular fast food chains. Well, probably because you won’t fit. In Ball Pit Manila, you will. Dive, swim, jump through 80,000 white balls in this highly Instagrammable establishment. This is open exclusively to adults from Mondays to Saturdays but on Sundays, children above three years old are allowed to go in.

Those seemingly impossible movie chase scenes in Casino Royale and Prince of Persia are all thanks to parkour. Parkour is a training discipline that uses movement to navigate a given environment as efficiently as possible. Ninja Academy is the first indoor parkour facility in the country where you can learn jumping, balancing, vaulting, and other free-running techniques.

Jump Yard

Have you always wanted to slam dunk that basketball but you’re just too short to reach that ring? Jump Yard will make your hoops dream come true with the help of trampolines. This is the first trampoline park with several jump-boosting activities and foam pits that will provide zero gravity fun.

If getting trapped in a room—where you have to decipher clues in order to get out within a specified amount of time—sounds like fun to you, then you and your squad should head to the nearest escape room. Test your analytical skills, your wits, and lastly, your composure. Mystery Manila and Breakout Manila are the most popular but consider visiting newcomer Left Behind which features themed rooms based on classic cinema.
