So be it a VR experience or rides at an amusement park, here is a broad range for you to choose from, only on Paytm.

Imagine walking on a plank that is just a few inches wide. Now, imagine walking on the same plank suspended between two cliffs! Such stomach churning excitement can be experienced at gaming and entertainment centers in and around your city. Though the perceived reality of walking on the skies may seem no big a deal, it is more challenging than you would expect.

There is an array of adventures that you can go for such as bungee jumping, paragliding and paintball.

Bowling is indoors and open all-year long. It is a great idea for a family-night activity even if you are not too fond of the outdoors. You don’t have to be an expert nor do you need any prior experience for rolling the ball down the bowling lane. It is all about spending quality time together, as a team.
