4 Activities to do in Amsterdam

Below you will find 4 very cool activities that you can do in Amsterdam. Also check out the cool activities you can do at a children’s birthday party in Amsterdam.

Play an escape room

An awesome indoor activity that you can do with your friends, family and colleagues is an escape room. It is an exciting game where you and your group are locked in a room. An escape room is often beautifully decorated in a specific theme. All hints are hidden in the room and tasks can be performed. By doing this well and quickly you will progress further into the game and towards the ultimate goal. This end goal is to escape from the room. There are whole groups of people who have the hobby to play as many escape rooms as possible. There are now 220 escape room locations in the Netherlands, 39 of which are in Amsterdam. An escape is certainly one of the best things to do in Amsterdam.

Experience virtual reality

Virtual reality has taken off in recent years. Virtual reality, also known as VR, is a computer technique in which it seems as if you have ended up in a different reality. Through special VR glasses, visible reality is simply replaced by computer-generated image. The glasses contain a screen and close your view of the outside world. Because your eyes each see their own image, which differs slightly from each other, you see depth in the virtual environment. In other words: you look in 3D.

Crash into a bubble soccer ball

One of the most hilarious things in Amsterdam back then is bubble football. Wrapped in a huge plastic ball, where only your legs come out, you play a game of football. Not just playing football, no you can also be pounded in bubble football. That gives the whole game a different dimension. Super cool and a must to do with friends or colleagues.

Play real life gaming with laser gaming

This is laser gaming, but not in a dark loft, but simply outdoors. Really delicious. The laser guns are quite realistic and all you need to wear extra is a headband. Not a whole lot happy. You play different missions. It feels a bit like playing a computer game like Fortnite.
