In the past, whenever my friends and I made plans for the weekend after a long week of hustlin’ at work, we would constantly lament about the lack of fun things to do near town. That’s was until we came across the newly-reopened youth destination, GR.iD.

With over 50 unique stores and concepts, the space promises over 92,000 sqft of fun-filled activities for my squad. Here’s what my gal-pals and I enjoy doing at GR.ID!

Sleuth Away To Solve A Murder Mystery @ LOADING 

Put on your thinking caps, costumes and get into character at LOADING’s Live Action Role Playing (LARP). Using real scenes to create game scenes, sound and light simulations, service designs, mechanism configuration and even NPC interactions, this 2.5 hour session had us immersed in a game of whodunit as we try to investigate the murder in order to find the culprit. Oh boy! This experience was one of a kind.

Price: $68/pax 

Opening Hours: Monday to Sunday 10am-1am

Work Up A Sweat And Get Fit @ The Battleground

One of my goals for 2022 is to work out more consistently – especially after over indulging during CNY.  I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with exercise, but it changed when I chanced upon The Battleground. Perfect for those looking to get their fitness game up, The Battleground is one of the best places to be. Blending various workout philosophies to maximise training techniques and over 10 battleground formats, this gym promises three concepts-in-one.

Grab A Quick Bite @ CHUNZ
There’s no better way to end the day with the squad after sipping some tea than gorging on freshly made Korean corn dogs, a the first of its kind in Singapore.

Chunz’s food are mostly made from scratch using only premium ingredients like its premium chicken sausage, stretchy cheese, chicken fillet, beef sausage, fancy toppings and a selection of sauces.
