    Amazing and fun indoor activities await your family! Here are the top things to do in Auckland for kids!

    One of the major cities in New Zealand, Auckland is brimming with activities perfect for families to share and to enjoy. Given that it is also one of the leading centres for business and tourism, there should be no surprise that there will always be something fun waiting in and around the city.

    So take a tour up the Sky Tower and take in the breathtaking views. After that, you can start to do these top things to do in Auckland for kids!

    What does it really feel like to fly? We really don’t have a conclusive idea, but the people at Uptown Bounce may know a thing or two about flight. With interconnected trampolines wall-to-wall and more angled trampolines than you could imagine, your kids will be able to bounce off walls and floors endlessly. There is even a dodge ball area where competitors can try to take each other down in true air-to-air combat! There is always a trampoline session running every hour, so just drop by and jump away!

If these amenities are not convincing enough, there are some Zorb balls on standby for some rolling good time! Your kids can bash against each other silly without hurting themselves. An Under 5’s Area specially made for the younger kids (5 years and younger) is also available for safety.
