When you’re looking for activities to do with your tweens and teens, you probably want to make sure they tick three key boxes:
- They aren’t too expensive (so they can bring a friend perhaps)
- Keep them mentally or physically active (so you can avoid the dreaded, “I’m bored. This sucks.”
- Something that is supervised, but where you could still allow them their “independence” while keeping an eye on them!
So here are ten of the best for your teens and tweens to enjoy in Adelaide…
Move over Tarzan, TreeClimb is the Adelaide City Parklands’ newest attraction and it’s calling all energetic, outdoors loving adventurers – young and old! Thrill-seekers, nature enthusiasts and curious adventurers can walk, climb and swing your way around six elevated tree-walk courses, 70 obstacles and several zip lines within a 16,000-square-metre zone.
The Shadow Initiation is an Australian first. A digital adventure game that has you racing against the clock, solving puzzles, decoding clues and uncovering hidden treasures. There are secret buttons, hidden doors and plenty more that you can discover only by playing The Shadow Initiation.
Best suited for older kids, it’s an exciting adventure that’s unlike any other experience in Adelaide. The Shadow Initiation can cater for small or large groups, and you can finish off with lunch at the Museum Café!
Doughballs at Glenelg or Mawson Lakes is a great option for teens or tweens, cause pizza…but also because if they are too cool for the kids menu there are plenty of other options without getting too fancy or expensive. They will LOVE the desserts (actually that goes for all ages!). Doughballs also do some cool special events for things like Halloween & NYE.
AFL Max is Australia’s first indoor football skills, entertainment and education centre. The 5,500m2 indoor venue is all about getting kids active and having fun – with activities to keep both the footy-mad and not-so-mad entertained for hours! The venue is filled with trampolines, rock climbing walls, interactive screen games, inflatables, skill tests and challenges that keep the fun going until the final siren!
The ultimate day of adventure includes the 70+ obstacles on the MegaClimb, a free fall simulated jump from 18m high, the SkyWalk to take in the views, and the Giant Swing to finish your day with an adrenaline rush like no other. * allow 3 hours *
