From Urban Safari we bring you the best options you can choose to spend a Saturday in Madrid full of emotions and unique experiences.

1- Urban Safari
You have one hour, a target for you and your friends, cold beers and, of course, our arsenal of throwing weapons.

Calle de las Delicias, 9
2- Fox in a box
Fox in a box is the largest Escape Room in Europe, an activity in which boredom has no place. This plan in Madrid offers you different scenarios in which you interact with the objects in the room to complete your escape.
Find out how it feels to solve the zodiac killer, rescue the Golden Chicken from a Wild West town, and rob a security camera with valuable jewelry.
And yes, it is the largest Escape Room in Europe with 1,500 square meters, so don’t miss out on this experience with a bar included in case solving puzzles makes you very thirsty.

3- Gran Paintball Madrid
Gran Paintball Madrid is the largest playing field in Spain. Apart from the paintball activity, they offer barbecues, an escape room, gymkanas and a simulation of the Squid Game.
They open every day by reservation and the good news is that there is a bus, the 664, that you can take in Moncloa and it has a stop at the door of the Gran Paintball.
C/Barrasqui S/N (San Lorenzo de El Escorial)
Feel the true American university spirit without leaving Madrid at Beer Pong Madrid. Go with your group of friends and enjoy a day of games and beers.
Beer pong is an activity that has become fashionable in recent years in Spain and is a series of games whose objective is to frame ping pong balls inside glasses full of beer. The cup where the ball lands, is the cup that your opponent has to drink.
It is a unique idea, different from staying with your group to have a beer in any bar in the city.
