X-SCAP8: High Element Course over 10m high

One of the main draws of X-SCAP8 is the colorful High Element course. There are three levels of suspended obstacles and at the highest it is over 10m high! You’ll be strapped into a safety harness and helmet before scaling the heights, traversing the obstacle course, and walking on balance beams.

Do you dare to ride the bike on the balance beam of the Xscap8 orchard?

Do you dare to take the bike on the balance beam? At level three, there’s even a skateboard that balances on a beam!

There is a minimum height requirement of 1.2m and a maximum weight limit of less than 120kg. Also, you must wear covered shoes. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
Price: Starting at $35 per person.

Sassy Mama Review: We tried this high element X-SCAP8 course and our 7 and 10 year olds had a blast! It was not too difficult to go around the X-SCAP8 course. The scariest part? The cheesy obstacle side (our palms were sweaty and there was a ‘will I make it’?) but the staff assured us that even if you lose your grip, the safety harness is there to catch you and that’s it. is on a very short cord (so as not to fall under the security beams). The kids loved trying to skate and bike along the beam and there was easily time in the 45 mins of active challenge time to ride the course a few times.
Point: The X-SCAP8 has just been opened and the paint is new – don’t look up when moving your harness rope through the safety beams as you may get paint stains in your eyes!


X-Warrior Challenge Obstacle Course

X-SCAP8 also has an indoor Ninja course where kids can test their agility, speed and strength. This is a shoe-free zone and covered socks are mandatory for hygienic reasons. The height requirement is 1.2 meters and children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Socks are also mandatory in this area without shoes.
Price: The X-Warrior Challenge is currently free with a spend of $30 per person at RestoBar ‘Eat-Play-Laugh’.

Sassy Mama Review: It was fun as an add-on if you buy food from the cafe anyway so entry becomes free, but that’s probably not enough in this particular area to keep the kids entertained for too long otherwise.


Retro arcade games

Tips from Sassy Mama when visiting X-SCAP8:

  • Bring your own socks (or you will need to buy them from X-SCAP8).
  • Wear activewear and athletic shoes or leggings for children for the high element and obstacle course.
  • Food and beverages are available at the on-site ‘Eat-Play-Laugh’ RestoBar. The avocado and bacon burger is pretty decent!
