Here are 5 interactive activities (and calorie burning) that will bound to make both your father and your day memorable.

1. Conquer the Terrains with Your Dad at Sync Cycle

Regardless of how much both your Pop and you embrace the great outdoors, don’t you agree that cycling under the scorching sun can really be an unglamorous affair (imagine unkempt hair &sun burns)?

Why not take your dad to an indoor spinning class at Sync Cycle, where you can hit the pedals according to the rhythm of the upbeat music, all in the comfort of an air-conditioned and neon illuminated studio? In case you’re wondering, the intensity of the spin class increases as the trainer guides you through the mixture of “weights”, “peaks” and “terrains”, so be prepared to hop on the bikes, party on and fry some calories (every 50 minutes of spinning burns 409 calories)!

2. Let Your Dad Take Revenge at Katapult Trampoline Park

We are sure that your dad remembers those “gruelling” days where he had to catch you while you ran and jumped endlessly around the playground (because kids just love to play).

Help your dad to take “revenge” by bringing him to Katapult Trampoline Park. Your dad will definitely have a blast catapulting himself around the Olympic trampoline while shedding some calories (101 calories for 30 minutes of the recreational trampoline). You can even challenge your dad to the title of “Daredevil” by freefalling from 3 metres height. Need more? Slacklining and dodgeball are also on offer!

We know it’s expensive bringing your dad to SMTOWN for the full K-pop Experience Program. Now, you can help your dad fulfil that inner desire by signing him up for the KPOPX Fitness class at Janesis Fitness. We recommend going for Brekletics (workout based on basic bodyweight and basic breakdance moves) if your dad wants something more challenging.

Can’t fathom your dad’s interest towards football? Well, you might finally understand it after engaging in a 5-a-side football game with your dad.

Ladies, before you start whining, you will be glad to find that the game requires less running and provides more opportunity to come into contact with the ball (thanks to the smaller pitch area). As the saying goes “the more the merrier”, so remember to invite your dad’s buddies along.

Cool your dad down by arranging for a date with him at SportsQuest (located in Snow City). Here both of you not only could immerse in the chills but also the thrills by skiing down the 60 metres long adrenaline packed slope. Do remember to ask your dad to look out for the various Artic exhibits and snow sculptures while he slides down. We’re totally excited as the new snow machine is capable of producing up to 40 tonnes of powder that is of similar quality to real snow!
