Lahore is, no doubt, Pakistan’s version of the city that never sleeps. Lahoris are historically accustomed to spending their leisure time getting entertained by the many attractions the city has to offer. While traditionally, the entertainment automatically translates into dining out for the residents of Lahore, the city has recently seen a new addition in its long list of weekend rendezvous.

Trampoline and gymnastic parks around the world are known for providing people of all ages with joyful fits of laughter and vast spaces for excited jumping about. Funco (by the Fit and Fun group) offers Lahoris an opportunity to jump to their heart’s content right in the centre of the city.

The air park, located in Gulberg, is the largest indoor trampoline park of the country. The entire vicinity of the amusement park is designed like a huge bounce ball; one could bounce off of any corner of the place. From a foam pit to a ninja warrior zone, it offers an entire library of engaging activities for the kids including basketball and dodgeball.

The facility reserves its Mondays for ladies in order to create a comfortable zone for them to “let their hair down and their inhibitions out.

However, like all large gymnastic parks around the world, the activities at Funco are not limited to just the children. The gymnastics’ centre offers quality instructors and training grounds for beginners in the sport. The latest WAPDA champion of Lahore offers training at the boxing zone here. Besides, the national gold medalist of Pakistan also uses the place as a training ground for Olympic level gymnastics.

A cardio wall akin to the one used by the unified world heavy champion, Anthony Joshua, is available for the beginners and the professional boxers of Lahore. Likewise, a gymnastic setup similar to the one used by the Baywatch star Zac Efron is also part of the equipment and training offered to the fitness enthusiasts of the city.

The average number of five hundred people who visit the park on the weekends is met with not only the aforementioned facilities but also offered special discounts such as a 50 percent students’ discount and 10 percent pre-booking discount to make the high-end gym more accessible to its visitors.

The kids not only get ample space to jump about and flex their muscles but are also provided with aerobic fitness classes and extensive summer camps. The park employees and administration are trained to look after the kids and to provide them with unprecedented doses of fun.

The Funco falcons, a team of professionally trained gymnasts, offer the visitors world-class training in the sport and also a chance to squeeze in their fitness routine with light-hearted fun.

No entertainment attraction in Lahore would be complete without a top-notch facility for dining out and celebrating festive occasions. Funco adheres to this unsaid charter of the city and offers the visitors an area for enjoying their meals while looking over the vast vicinity of the amusement park.

“I love this new concept of bringing your kids to a place where they not only get to laugh and play but also get some much needed exercise,” says Huma, a mother of three, visiting the park.

The creators of the facility are looking to expand the opportunities available at the park and are competing at the forefront with world-class gymnastic and trampoline parks. In the scorching heat of Lahore the brand new park offers a much needed, fun filled atmosphere for the citizens to cool off at.
