Latitude ↠ Melbourne, Australia

Running between the hustle and bustle of full time university, multiple jobs, commuting between Melbourne and Geelong every fortnight, and trying to breathe often leaves no time to just relax, have some fun, and forget about assignment deadlines and work hours even just for a brief moment.

However, a few weeks ago I made a conscious decision to take a few hours out of my day purely for myself and to have some fun with a friend.

That’s where Latitude comes in.

Latitude is an indoor trampoline and climbing arena for children of all ages {13 and under require parental/adult supervision at all times}, and when I say ALL AGES I really mean it, yes even us 20+ year olds!

Bounce, climb and fly is their slogan and that’s exactly what you get to do for your hour session.

Situated in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne, you’ll find Latitude in Heidelberg {590 Waterdale Road, 3081}. You can either book online {recommended during holiday times} or turn up and hope there’s a free spot {which is what we did, and we turned out to be the only ones booked during our session}. Prices vary depending on age and whether you’ve got a group.

Once your session begins, GO WILD!

We started on the climbing section, not for the faint hearted! Despite having done 50M bungy jumps and 14,000ft. skydives, climbing this less than 100M wall was slightly petrifying to be honest. Unlike other climbing places where you have someone belaying at the bottom, Latitude boasts self-belaying systems, which is why it’s so much scarier to let go of the wall once you’re at the top.

The climbing arena boasts a variety of climbing walls, and even a stepping climb {see below}, which is definitely not for the faint hearted.

Also in the centre is a trampoline section with a number of trampolines, including ones running up the wall slightly.

Along the trampoline section is also an obstacle course {which we didn’t do but looked fun none the less}.

Latitude offer a number of other services including fitness classes using the trampolines, aerial classes, and a kids zone too.

For the mere AU$15 {student pricing including the Latitude socks} this place is not to be missed if you’re looking for an hour of fun. It really took me back to my childhood and was a great distraction from the juggling act my life currently is.
