Urban Xtreme is Packed Full of Fun for the Whole Family

Urban Xtreme is the hottest place to chill out in Brisbane. Where else in Queensland can you ski, snowboard, trampoline, play laser tag, run the Ninja warrior and parkour course AND host a birthday party? Only at Hendra’s Urban Xtreme!

We checked it out and we have all the insiders tips to help you have an epic time there with your kids!

What is Urban Xtreme

Urban Xtreme is the ultimate indoor party and adventure centre located on Brisbane’s north side. It opened in late 2017 to bring the thrill of skiing and snowboarding to Brisbanites, and has continued to grow from there. In fact, Urban Xtreme is the largest indoor snow and sports centre in Australia!

Urban Xtreme has something for children of all ages, from Playland for tots to their newest addition: Xtreme Ninja and Parkour. Keep reading because there’s heaps to do there and we don’t want you to miss a thing!

Indoor skiing and snowboarding– Xtreme Ski

For the best skiing action this side of Thredbo, Urban Xtreme is the place to go! Their indoor dry ski slope is designed to help you learn the skills of downhill skiing and snowboarding without the hassle of snowburn, dehydration, lifts, queues, freezing cold weather and all the heavy snow gear that goes with it.

Whether you’re an experienced skier already or hitting the slopes for the first time, at Urban Xtreme you’ll get expert tuition from a team of fully qualified coaches who are all members of Australian Professional Snowsport Instructors.

Urban Xtreme lets you practice inside on simulators that give you an hour of skiing and snowboarding time on revolving slopes. If you were to do this in the real world, you’d be covering more than 20,000 vertical feet – yikes! Whizzing down the indoor dry ski slope has been shown to accelerate your learning by up to 8 times, so you’ll be skiing like a pro in no time!

You don’t get to muck around with an Xtreme snowball fight afterwards, but who knows – the way Urban Xtreme keeps on growing REAL snow could be somewhere on their to-do list! (Disclaimer: we don’t know if it is, but this place is already so cool real snow is the only possible way it could get any cooler!)

What ages can hit the ski slopes at Urban Xtreme?

Anyone from 4 years old to adult! All equipment is provided and the instructor can control the speed and incline of the slopes for your safety. Skiers and snowboarders are grouped according to age and ability to make sure you get the maximum enjoyment out of your time there, and snowboarders and skiers are never on the same slope at the same time.

Whatever your motivation for hitting the slopes, whether to simply have fun with friends or hone your competitive edge, there’s a tailored experience for your needs at Urban Xtreme.

Tween Birthday Party Ideas

Xtreme Laser is included in the Park Pass (details below), with games lasting ten minutes each. You can play for fun with friends, or join the friendly competitive Laser League for a tournament experience.

What is laser tag?

Laser tag is a game of skill where players wear an electronic vest and carry a gun that fires harmless lasers. The aim of the game is to ‘shoot’ (tag) your opponents without getting shot yourself. The game can be played in teams or individually, and obstacles and ‘cover’ are provided in the arena. Once hit, your laser will power down for a short period of time and all ‘hits’ and ‘kills’ are recorded electronically to determine the winner. There may also be targets to hit for extra bonus points.

Who can play laser tag at Xtreme Laser?

Xtreme Laser is recommended for players aged 5-6 years and older, with up to 33 players in the arena at one time. The arena is dimly lit and set over multiple levels with access ramps. There is enough light to create atmosphere and be safe, but younger children may require a parent or older child to guide them.

Xtreme Laser also offers Laser League, a friendly professional laser tag competition for children aged 8 years and over. Check out the Urban Xtreme website for more details.

  1. My daughters recently did the indoor skiing at Urban Extreme and loved it. She had lots of fun with her friends learning to ski. The staff were friendly and helpful. And made the experience fun for the kids.
