First of all, you need to try the trampolines. They’re awesome. Second of all, the go-karts are cool but you might want to be careful about who you go with. And third of all, I’ll start this post.
I’m referring to MultiParque in Bogota, Colombia. It’s a totally awesome place. It has giant slides, go-karts, water bumper cars, bungee propelled trampolines, and if none of these things have appealed to you yet, then something else I haven’t mentioned probably would.
When you get there, after you park, you go and get your tickets. It costs a little less than twelve dollars for a sheet of ten tickets. Everything is either one or two tickets. It’s two tickets per person to get into the giant park area. It’s got slides, swings, zip-lines and a bunch of other stuff. One of my favorites is this-thing-that-I-don’t-know-what-to-call. At the top is a giant metal wheel with a fixed weight inside. A rope is attached to the outside of the wheel and runs through a pulley that is on the wooden frame. When you pull the rope, it spins the wheel and the weight. The weight makes the wheel go back. Once you get it going with enough force, you can grab on and will be pulled into the air. There’s a soccer ball hung up there that you can try to kick when you go up. The park area also has giant slides. They are so big you can only go down them in a big sack. It also has this thing called “El Temblor”. It vibrates so hard that it makes your whole body numb once you stand on it. It has some fun zip-lines too.
If you go on the weekend or a holiday, it will be slightly (way) more crowded, but the giant swing will be open. Ah, the giant swing. A body harness hooked onto super long ropes, and attached to a winch to haul you in to the air. You sit in suspense as the mechanical whirring brings you higher and higher until- click- it lets you swing free.
If you get tired of hanging out in there, you can go do something else, but you can come back in whenever you want due to the wristband they’ll give you. Go-karts are two tickets per person. If you do do the go-karts, but make sure it’s just you and your family. We were waiting line once to do the go-karts and these kids were out in the go-karts. They had been kinda rough with each other, bumping into each other to get n front, when, BAM! This girl totally full-speed-ahead rammed into the kid in front of her who she couldn’t get past. We were sure he had a concussion, but he was fine. So, it’s awesome and so much fun, just be careful about who you go with.
If you have little kids with you, you might want to go to the “petting” zoo. It’s more like a feeding zoo but still lots of fun. I said this initially for little kids, but it would still be fun with older kids. When you go in, you buy a cheap basket of carrots (well you don’t have to, but it’s worth it), and you’re free to wander around and look at the animals. Among it’s animals are pigs, cows, sheep, donkeys, peacocks, roosters, rabbits, turkeys, llamas, and many more.
And the trampolines! It’s a trampoline, but then they strap you into a harness thats attached to a bundle of bungees. And then they use machinery to pull you up some in the bungees so you end up jumping about ten feet into the air. Don’t be afraid to try flipping, even if you’re not a gymnast! Because they hoist it up, you can’t fall. I did a double flip and landed on my head once, but in reality, I slowed down as I got closer to the trampoline, then my head very lightly and slowly brushed the trampoline, then I bounced back up. My brother can do a quadruple backflip on here.
It would take to long to describe all the fun stuff at MultiParque, so I’ll leave the rest for you to find out for yourselves. Hope you’ve enjoyed this post!
