It’s not: G-Max Reverse Bungy boasts a 100% safety record with over 1,000,000 riders successfully making it back down to earth in one piece.

Singapore Lockdown is a real-life escape game in which players are placed into a ‘locked’ room and have to figure a way of getting out collaboratively.

Failing that, there’s an emergency escape door for those that become too claustrophobic or find that their time has run out – whichever comes sooner: great fun for the whole family and a good alternative way to spend a rainy day in Singapore. You can find Lockdown located in ‘The Central’ shopping centre in Clarke Quay. Games cost around S$20 per person per hour.
