For the adrenaline junkies
Any adrenaline junkies out there will be delighted to hear that there’s a brand-new, thrill-inducing experience at The O2. A London first, iFLY offers indoor skydiving, made possible through pioneering vertical wind tunnel technology that replicates the experience of freefalling, without the need for a parachute. The experience is open to people of all ages, making it the perfect activity to enjoy with friends and family alike.
Up at The O2 is an exhilarating outdoor climb like nothing you’ll have experienced before – up and over the top of the world’s most popular music, leisure and entertainment venue. From £35 per person, the 90-minute guided climbs give breath-taking, 360-degree views of the capital. Choose from a range of climb types including Daytime, Twilight or a Celebration Climb and enjoy a glass of Champagne Lanson at the summit. This Easter, The O2 has gone chocolate-mad by gifting free, full-size Easter Eggs to anyone embarking on a climb from Good Friday through to Easter Monday.
Ignite your competitive side
And the fun just keeps on coming. If you and your friends enjoy a bit of healthy, active competition then BOOM BATTLE BAR could be just the place you’ve been looking for. There’s axe throwing, augmented-reality darts, crazy golf and shuffleboarding to tackle – just make sure you keep score.
Which brings us to the football. TOCA Social is an immersive football experience paired with a restaurant and bar. Which means that while you’re winning the football challenges (hopefully), your tastebuds will be winning too. Make the most of various discounted Easter packages and extended opening hours just in time for the holidays. Oh, and there’s an egg hunt too. Kicking off on Easter Sunday, it’ll send you all around The O2 before bringing you back to TOCA Social to collect your goodie bag – which will feature chocolate!!
Jump to the beat
If you’ve got a spring in your step and music in your heart, Oxygen Freejumping is the place for you. Oxygen Freejumping is kicking off the Easter weekend with ‘Neon Nights’ on Good Friday, a fun-filled evening where you can enjoy two hours of jumping to slick beats from a live DJ, Each ticket qualifies the holder for a delicious hotdog and unlimited squash (you’ll need to stay hydrated), and you even get to take the glow sticks home too.
This Easter, get 30 minutes free when you book a 90-minute session with code ‘SPRING90’, and note that all kids eat free after 4pm with bookings made between 1–16 April.
Farewell Elton at The O2
With the legendary Elton John playing 10 nights at The O2 this April and May, Rocket Man fans can shop a full range of tour merchandise complete with unique fan experiences and exclusive t-shirts and posters at the ‘Farewell Elton at The O2’ store, open from 2–17 April.
Over 30 bars and restaurants
The O2 is jam-packed full of places to eat and drink, and there really is something for everyone. If meat’s your thing then check out the excellent Argentinian steak restaurant Gaucho. Other eateries include everything from Nando’s and PizzaExpress to newer restaurants like Middle Eastern inspired Soukra and the dessert heaven, Haute Dolci. If you’re on the go and need a spot of sustenance before a show, there are plenty of places to grab a quick bite too. Five Guys – with its brilliant burgers, is just one option, as well as Wasabi, TGI Friday’s and Thunderbird Fried Chicken.
And last but by no means least. Sometimes nothing beats a great British pub – which is where The Stargazercomes in. Opened just last week, and part of the nation’s much-loved JD Wetherspoon chain, it’s the perfect place to grab a drink, take a seat and unwind. The riverside beer garden is the jewel in The Stargazer’s crown, a great place to admire the views of Canary Wharf and beyond.
The O2 is located just 15 minutes from central London and is easily accessible by road, tube, or boat.
