Urban Xtreme in Hendra is Australia’s largest indoor snow sports and adventure centre - the only place in Queensland where you can hit the slopes, as well as Queensland's largest laser tag arena.
The perfect place for busy city dwellers to practice skiing or snowboarding, Urban Xtreme's state-of-the-art dry ski slopes are customised to help users learn to ski eight-times faster than on real snow, with no lifts, queues, or freezing weather.
Skiing is also the perfect school holiday activity – it creates memories, builds fitness and gets the kids away from the TV and off their iPads.
The machines allow 30-minutes of continuous, average-speed skiing or snowboarding on revolving slopes – which is equivalent to skiing more than 20,000 vertical feet.
Urban Xtreme also offers families a cost-effective alternative to long-distance travel, the perfect place to enjoy learning to ski, in a safe and comfortable indoor environment.
And those planning an interstate or overseas ski trip can build their ski fitness and practise safety techniques her beforehand, in readiness to hit the slopes on arrival.
Urban Xtreme is also the home of a new state-of-the-art adventure sports facility, with Xtreme Laser, the largest laser tag arena in Queensland.
Xtreme Laser represents the second stage of its indoor adventure sports park, after it introduced Queensland’s only indoor simulated ski centre in 2017.
Urban Xtreme Co-Founder and laser tag Australasian Champion Benjamin “Bootza” Baker said the futuristic laser tag facility features some world first concepts.
“We have created a Queensland-first space that challenges the traditional concept of a laser tag field,” Mr Baker said.
It is designed to cater for both adults and kids as it can host social and professional players, yet still has the usual features kids have come to expect. The centre boasts advanced equipment, a viewing gallery and the ability to live stream games which gives players the opportunity to play-back their game and revise and improve on tactics.
