CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Live Action Role Playing (LARP), Escape Room, Trampoline Parks, Home Party Shops, Cute Pet Parks... Have you tried these new forms of entertainment?
During the National Day holiday, the reporter of Chongqing Daily found that these new business and new consumption types are very hot, especially popular with young people.
Role-playing and fun
At 10:00 a.m. on October 1, as soon as Chongqing Sunac Land opened for business, many young people were arrived at the Paradise LARP registration desk located at the main gate.
“The character I drew was the secret agent.” Tan Xin, a student from Chongqing College of Electronic Engineering, excitedly told the reporter that he would help the city lord find the treasure through a number of hurdles.
Every LARP game has a storyline to back it up. Tan Xin participated in none other than The City Lord’s Treasure, which tells the story of the City Lord’s treasure being stolen and multiple characters helping to retrieve it.
The person in charge of the LARP event told the reporter that this was the first time that Chongqing Sunac Land held an outdoor paradise LARP, and more than 30 people signed up for the event in less than an hour after it started, and it was expected to receive more than 1,000 people during the National Day holiday.
Into the play and fun
There are hot games that have no sound, and Escape Room is one of them.
At 2:00 p.m. on October 2, the reporter came to Yuanjiagang Chengkai Center and found the corridors on the Floors 4-6 of the mall were sparsely populated. But when the reporter went inside the shop, he found several plays being staged, with the audience playing the roles and participating in the performance, which was very vibrant, as if it was a different scene.
“All 3 plays are full.” A staff member of MAX Bojue Immersive Super Game Experience Shop told the reporter that the shop has a total of three plays, including Silent in the Rainy Night and Story of Yanxi Palace, and each play was staged four times a day during the holiday, which was basically booked up three days in advance.
“Escape Room games have become very popular in Chongqing in recent years, and we receive over 2,000 visitors a day during the holiday,” the Head of Planning and Marketing of Chengkai Center said.
Bounce to relax and have fun
Accelerated runs, bounces into the air, forward somersaults, backwar somersaults…
JUMP 360, a large trampoline park with an area of nearly 3,000 square meters in the Liangjiang New Area, was a happy place for many young people to have fun during the National Day holiday.
The reporter saw that there are many types of trampolines, including beehive trampolines, long trampolines, and square trampolines, some with basketball and sponge pool units. The public can not only challenge the trampoline, but also perform dunking and diving performances, as they can fall down without pain because of the trampoline and sponge support.
“I’m usually stressed and I can relax and unwind by bouncing on the trampoline during the holiday.” Li Gang, a 1990s resident who has just worked for one year, said.
The shop manager told the reporter that there have been more and more trampoline-themed shops for adults in recent years, and the two shops the Company opened in Chongqing received more than 300 people every day during the National Day holiday.
Home Party Shop
Eat, drink and play and convenient
Where would you choose for a family gathering during the holiday?
The choice is no longer a hotel or restaurant, nor a KTV, nor a teahouse; and many people choose a Home Party Shop.
“Hotels and restaurants can only serve meals, KTVs can only serve songs and teahouses can only serve tea, but a Home Party Shop does it all, so it is convenient.” In the evening of October 3, Ms. Ding, who was having a dinner with her relatives and friends at Leli Private Custom Party Nanbin Road Shop, said happily.
The reporter saw that the shop has six themed private rooms such as childish, vintage and romantic, each with a full range of leisure and entertainment facilities such as KTV, tea sets, billiards and games machines, in addition to dining facilities.
The person in charge of the shop told the reporter that the private rooms were fully booked out more than 10 days before the National Day, and the whole National Day holiday was estimated to have received more than 2,000 people. (Translated by Wang Huixin, Fathom Language Limited)
