Earlier in the week, precisely Monday 25th May, we celebrated Africa Day! Africa is a blessed continent and I am proud to be an African. To celebrate Africa ,please do share in the comments section: amazing experiences you have had in an African country it could be your home country or any other African countries(s) as it relates to tourism(which could be food tourism;tours;travel;locals of a community;airlines;airbnbs;hotels etc.)

This post will be focusing on some  places to visit in Lagos and how to explore them.

(1) Upbeat Center: Located at 11 Admiralty Road, Lekki Phase 1, Lagos is West Africa’s first trampoline park and recreation center. There are different activities to do for fitness, fun, leisure etc

I went to Upbeat with my sister. On arrival you will be asked to sign a waiver if you are up to 18. For children below 18, a parent or guardian will complete the process for them. Afterwards, we joined the queue to purchase our tickets. The tickets gives access to the trampoline section for an hour and comes with socks.After payment, we were asked to secure our valuables in a locker.Afterwards, we were asked to watch a safety video.

When we were done watching the safety video, we were allowed into the trampoline section. I did the trampoline jumping, playing on the foam pit, attempted to play trampoline basketball etc.

Other facilities available at upbeat centre include: restaurant, virtual reality, outdoor basketball court, retail space for lease for events, football pitch, go kart etc. Going to Upbeat center is a good way to have fun, exercise, burn some calories etc

Some of the games come with rewards which could either be winning a prize or reloading the buzz card with more coins. Tickets are of different prices depending on the number of coins you want, you will also purchase a buzz card, which can be re used on your other visits to Rufus and Bee.

It also has a bowling alley, a sports bar/restaurant where you can watch football and eat. I went to Rufus and Bee with my sister and a friend.

Oh my God… Amazing!
You won’t believe I’ve lived all my life in Lagos and I only know about Rufus and bee, badagry and omu resort… But I’ve only been to Rufus and bees…
This is so insightful I also think you should do a collab with this Nigerian blogger ericotrips, he also writes about places like this in Nigeria… That would be fun.

I’m glad about the new knowledge and I look forward to you exploring after COVID19.Thank you for reading 😊
