Fun Stuff to Do in Budapest – Autumn Edition

Autumn weather might be chilly at times in Hungary, but you can choose from an awful lot of opportunities in the capital city to fill your free time with useful pursuits even when your guts tell you to stay inside the house. Here’s a little inspiration.

Laser Fight, Duna Pláza (Second floor)

While some people enjoy shopping for clothes, others aren’t looking forward to purchasing their autumn/winter outfits. For them, the insanely cool Laser Force Arena (IR range sensors, real CLASS II laser beam) offers a great opportunity to occupy themselves with something fun while their company is trying on warm clothing items in a fitting room far, far away. The entertainment arena welcomes everyone over the age of 7 from 2 PM to 10 PM (Monday to Saturday) and 10 AM to 7 PM on Sunday. Reservation is required.

Boeing 737NG Simulator, Erzsébet tér

Have you ever wondered how awesome it would be to actually fly an airplane? Here’s your chance to make your pilot dreams come true! You’ll easily take off from downtown Budapest, knowing beans about flying. At Erzsébet tér’s PremiAir Silumatior Centre several options are available depending on how much time you desire to spend “behind the wheel”, and you can pick your departure airport from an extensive database of over 20,000 airports. It’s going to be an experience of a lifetime! Book your slot in advance.

Budapest Shooting, Nagymező utca

Going to a shooting range actually has benefits you have probably never thought about. Shooting sports build physical discipline, exercise your core muscles, improve focus and eyesight, and increase mental discipline, among several other things. Hungary’s highest quality shooting range can be found in the heart of Budapest, with the coolest technical design and a wide range of weapons (the sum total is above 100). Are you ready for the stress-relieving adventure?

Nightmare Budapest, Rákóczi út

Horror movie fans, this one is for you. Budapest’s answer to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is Nightmare Budapest, an interactive horror theatre where you can face all your fears while being part of a scary performance. Speaking from personal experience, we can tell you that it’s terrifying, adrenaline-fuelled, spectacular and thrilling at the same time. Challenge yourself and find out whether their shows scare the bleep out of you too! (Their special Halloween show is going to be insane.)
