Top Brussels adventure centre marks anniversary with big expansion
A fast growing Brussels activity centre has expanded to become one of the top places of its kind in the city. Koezio is an adventure park on the outskirts of Brussels which marks its 4th anniversary in October. It is a great place to let off steam and have lots of fun but there’s now even more to enjoy at Koezio (pronounced Ko-wa-ze-o), writes Martin Banks.
There are two exciting and brand new activities: a Karaoke room for up to 16 persons – which is 100% corona proof – where there are some 30,000 songs to choose from. This area can be rented for €150 for a couple of hours for up to 16 participants.
There is also “social darts”, an interactive way of playing darts with an electronic darts board keeping track of your score. This is rented for 1 hour for €15 and is also great fun.
There are also Koezio’s very popular “Elite Agents” games, which last up to two hours per “mission”. Teams comprise 2 to 5 “agents” (participants) but if there are more, 6 to 7 teams can undertake missions every 15 minutes and follow each other throughout the long adventure. For a couple of hours, your endurance, intelligence, courage and team spirit are challenged to complete the “journey” through what are called four districts: a mysterious labyrinth, a machine room with giant modules, an escape room and finally a dizzying trail at 12 meters height.
Located at the shopping centre Docks Bruxsel, Koezio offers “training as a special agent” in a converted 6,000 square metre space. Koezio is accessible for both young and old and from 2 players upwards. But for safety reasons you must be 1 metre 40cm in height. Anyone under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
Koezio is great for a family visit but also sets itself up as an ideal location for team building exercises. It also has meeting rooms, a dining room and a comfortable bar and lounge area for an aperitif or meal. There is ample car parking nearby plus a tram stop directly outside with direct links to central Brussels.
Its Communications Manager Kjell Materman said: “We get many visits from all sorts of people, including companies and sports clubs but Koezio is still being discovered by lots of people in Brussels and much further afield. The new features are already proving very popular.”
It has also gone to great lengths to ensure that all social distancing requirements laid down by the Belgian government are fully respected.
