5 indoor activities for rainy days in Cape Town

The Mother City is known around the world for its beautiful greenery, its beaches, and the plethora of outdoor activities we have on offer here in Cape Town. But when it’s wet outside, a hike up Table Mountain or a trip to Camps Bay just doesn’t seem as appetising as it usually would.

So when the weather isn’t playing along, here are 5 indoor activities to try that will bring your appetite for Cape Town’s treasures right back:

Let loose at Rollercade

Cape Town’s first indoor roller-skate arena is the perfect place to be if you’re yearning for the 80s, looking for something fun for the whole family, or simply in need of something to help you let off some steam as you groove to the music and glide with the crowd.

If you’re not that into skating, there’s even an area to chill with arcade games and pool boards.

“For the most fun on eight wheels, let’s roller skate!”

Bring out your inner detective at HintHunt

Pick a theme, have your phone taken away, and get locked up in a surveillance room where you and your partners must work out the puzzles, decode the riddles and unravel the clues to solve the mystery before the 60-minute timer goes off in order to escape the room.

Sounds as thrilling as abseiling down the mountain, doesn’t it?

And if you don’t feel like facing the rain to get there, you can enjoy the thrill and adventure of solving puzzles and unravelling clues in the comfort of your very own home with their range of online escape games.

And for all the parents wondering what to do with the kids, you’re in luck. There’s a family-friendly children’s club for kiddies between the ages of 4 and 12. With a range of educational games and toys, organised activities, group games and story telling, you can indulge in blissful pampering knowing they’re taken care of.

Catch a movie at the Labia Theatre

Nothing beats popcorn, Coca-Cola in a glass bottle and a wholesome movie accompanied by the pitter patter of raindrops against the ceiling. South Africa’s oldest independent art-repertory cinema with its old-fashioned feel and cozy atmosphere will offer just that and more.

Showcasing the best of alternative, independent, foreign and off-circuit movies, the Labia Theatre will make you fall in love with the arts. But don’t worry, they do show mainstream movies too for those slightly less art-inclined.

You can even buy dinner-and-a-movie tickets for two, making it an ideal date for any hopeless romantics.
