Shout About London

Nov 3, 2017

Bored of the same old places? What if we could show you an Axe Throwing, Slam Dunking, Turbo Bouncing, Front Flipping, Bat **** crazy night out? and all before your first beer!

Even better, what if you only needed two places to do it in?

This week on the Shout About London Podcast we have Urban Axe Throwing venue Whistle Punks.

Hear how a game of bubble football, escalated into slinging axes into wooden targets.

Followed by the incredible, brand new, indoor Leisure Park: Zap Space. Both kids and adults can bounce around this dynamic world of adventure; busting front flips into huge foam diving pits, racing down the vertical slides, or slam dunking into the night. Episode 10: ‘Urban Sports’ has landed.
