Bounce Inc Trampoline Park Glen Iris

BOUNCE is a world where the wall becomes the floor, a slam-dunk is within your grasp and the rules of gravity no longer apply. It's packed with lots of things to do with kids and the family. BOUNCE takes the rush of getting airborne and adds a bunch of new dimensions - from aerial manoeuvres to slam dunking, wall running and dodgeball warfare. The best part is it doesn't matter if you're under 5 or an action sports junkie in training - you're never too old or too young to have an awesome time. With more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed within huge, colourful spaces at a growing number of locations around Australia, BOUNCE is a spring-loaded urban playground with a wide range of things to do with kids; where hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade sponge, giant air bags and Springs. The rush of BOUNCE is infectious. Look around and everyone's buzzing, whether they're running up The Wall, launching into the Big Bag or loosening up in the Free Jump arena. It can be as easy or as challenging as you like - a training ground for aerial sports acrobatics, a place to kick back and look out over the action, or just a hard-core form of exercise that lets you burn energy without noticing you're in the middle of a cardio workout. And our friendly staff are always there to offer safety tips and show you a few moves along the way.

The staffs are excellent. They are friendly and helpful. There was some confusion but rectified quickly. Our host, Liam and his friend, Mr Banana, were superb with the kids. They were fun and engaging, they were very aware of the surrounding and was always prioritising safety without being like "helicopter parents". The facilities were great but ultimately, the staffs won us over. We did wish that we were better informed about the structures of the party as some parents of our guests were requesting jumping access so they can be near the kids. We bought 8 extra but most were wasted because the parents who requested them didn't really require the access.

Prince Alfred Park Pool

Reviewed By HarperTimes - Sydney, Australia

Such a great spot. We can forgive the City of Sydney in the delay in the opening of the pool (I believe it finally opened October 2013). Such a great pool, friendly/helpful staff and a fab way to start the day. Amenities are great for a public pool although it's a shame they couldn't add a small pool for little ones or learners (like they have at Andrew Boy Charlton pool). The onsite cafe (Meadow Cafe) offers great food and has a $10 coffee & eggs deal for that post-morning swim. I have yet to visit during busy periods but am loving this place so far.

Reviewed By NJF2014 - Melbourne, Australia

Chadstone prides itself on being the fashion capital, which it probably is, although I was very disappointed on three visits and not being able to find that special occasion outfit. However, I probably won't ever go there again because of the dangerous car park and curbs. In an underground car park, not brightly lit, an elderly person, had a fall on a curb which was not painted, breaking a bone - followed by a paramedic who came to transport the patient also tripping in the same place. This is really serious stuff !! More lights in underground car park and painting of ALL curbs please Chadstone before more people lose their independence, or heaven forbid, their life.

Beautiful historic precinct in Canterbury with charming retail neighbourhood and plenty of great places to eat. Really good for families. Very little open in the evening. It’d be wonderful if there was a bit of night life. Train station is very convenient.

Xcapade Escape Rooms

Escape Rooms are an exciting & challenging real life experience that enable small groups of people to use clues within and sometimes beyond the room to solve puzzles that allow them to escape the room.

Reviewed By afamlonga - Melbourne, Australia

We had such a great time trying to decipher the riddles and clues. The clues themselves were very well thought out, and I am surprised we actually cracked all of them, as they were so clever! Great thing to do with a family, an hour...MoreHi Afamlonga, Thanks for taking time and reviewed us!! We glad to hear you all had an amazing time in our escape room and we hope to see you again soon.

Reviewed By JFTasmania - Melbourne, Australia

Nice that the city it's on free trams, especially in a time when people are lining up for your money - for example try parking in the city!
There are a few reasonable parking buildings that will not fleece you, then you can ride the tram around to where you wanna go for free.
Also there's the nostalgic side. These are old well restored trams, a bit rickity and noisy, not exactly my style, but I can see lots of people appreciate such things, so has to almost be a must if your coming to admire the Victorian era of the city.
