16 Places To Go In Sydney When You're Tired Of Being An Adult

Get back to being adult later.

1. Skyzone Trampoline Park, Alexandria

Go for a bounce, a game of dodgeball and a dive into the foam pit.

2. Wild Ropes, Taronga Zoo

If the ropes course was always your favourite part of school camp, you'll be a fan of this 90 minute climb that involves lots of animal sighting and a flying fox through the trees.

4. Climb Fit, St Leonards

Indoor rock climbing is always fun, but it's even better when you're not an awkward teenager hoping your crush doesn't see you lose your grip.


5. No Lights No Lycra, Newtown and Bondi

This international dance community founded in Melbourne is exactly as the name suggests; it's a place to dance (100% sober - imagine!) in a dark room filled with people, wearing whatever the hell you feel like putting on that day. The perfect place to dance like nobody's watching, because literally, nobody is watching.

6. Strike Bowling, various locations

Bowling, laser tag, karaoke and scary escape rooms, this is everything your inner-child always dreamed of in the one place - with a bar.

7. Sydney Art School, various locations

Bring back the lost days of art class. Sydney Art School has three different locations (Baulkham Hills, Hornsby and Epping) and offers workshops for "absolute beginners", incase you've forgotten everything you learnt in Year 9.

8. Darlo Drama, Kings Cross

Maybe drama was the elective you've always wished you took, or maybe you just never pursued your dreams of being on the stage. This theatre company offers beginner's courses in large groups designed to help with any initial stage fright.


10. Luna Park, Sydney

Go on the ferris wheel, dodgem cars and the slide in Coney Island - all on a sugar high, of course. Visit late on a Friday or Saturday night to keep a little bit of adult in your kid time.

11. Wet'n'Wild, Prospect

Operating from September to April this is the best place for waterpark lovers in New South Wales with speed slides, a six storey tall slide, and a super insane half-pipe slide, which ends in a 16 metre drop.

12. Sydney Dance Company, Sydney

Finally put that ballerina bun to good use and have a go at a ballet basics class, designed for adults who have never danced before.


13. Centennial Park Cycles, Centennial Park

It's time to stop the whole not-owning-a-bike thing stopping you from living your best cycling life. Hire some wheels and hit the track... around the park.

14. Penrith Skatel, Penrith

Get reallllllllllll old school and see if your skating skills will pass the test of time.

16. Macquarie Ice Rink, North Ryde

Hit the ice and prepare yourself for many a flashback.
