Smaaash Bangalore!

Hey guys!
We got a chance to go to Smaaash last week and we had a blast. Smaaash is India's first Urban Sports Center located in the heart of Bangalore in 1 MG Mall, Bangalore. So this post is going to be about our take on this amazing gaming arcade.

Smaaash is a perfect getaway for your entire family with something for everyone. With Sachin Tendulkar as their Brand Ambassador, Virat Kohli as the Smaaash Youth Icon and Cristiano Ronaldo as their Global Ambassador, Smaaash has some pretty big names associated to it. Founded in 2012, Smaaash is already a favorite among most Bangaloreans.

One of the major attractions of this place are the Virtual Reality games. They were definitely our favorite. It was my first time experiencing VR and it was surreal. With six VR games, Smaaash definitely spoils you for choice.

One of my favorite VR games was Flying Carpet. It is loosely based on Alladin's carpet and makes you feel like you are flying amongst huge buildings and lovely scenery. Finger Coaster gives you a roller coaster experience in which you can design your own 950 mts long coaster and also choose a location for the setting of the coaster. We choose snow as our location and it was brilliant. FlyMax gives you a real life flying experience which was insane. The scariest one has to be Vertigo. It is the most popular VR game in Smaaash. It gives you a feeling that you're walking on a narrow plank between two high rise buildings with a fire breathing dragon trying to stop you! Having vertigo myself, this one gave me the chills. Art of Attack was another VR game and in this one you experience a virtual war zone. You have to fight snipers that are shooting and throwing grenades at you from all directions. The final VR game that I tried was ATV in which you are riding a dirt bike in a secluded desert. The variety of VR games available here is definitely a treat to anyone!

Apart from VR, the major attraction in Smaaash is Cricket. It's a one-of-it's-kind 360 degree cricket simulator where one gets to experience what it's like to play inside a packed stadium. The innovative technology perfectly replicates the bowling actions of the player's heroes. So far, about 47 cricketers from across the globe have signed up to record their actions. It is also home to championship games like Super Keeper and F1 racing. I tried F1 racing and absolutely loved it! There is also a twilight bowling section where you can bowl in incredible lighting. The remaining are the arcade games which are also great fun!

Smaaash is a wonderful place which brings out the child in all of us! It's a great place to unwind and just have fun. They serve beer for Rs 49 on all weekdays between 11 am to 11 pm which is an added bonus ;) There is a 1 + 1 offer on select games, food and drinks every Tuesday so if you want to make the most of the place then you know which day to go! :D

Apart from all of this, they also have India's first carnival themed cafe called Mighty Small which serves some great food and drinks. Smaaash is also hosting a kickass carnival themed New Year Party to bring in 2017 in style. So if you are looking for a place to spend your new year then head to Smaaash and have a gala time! I am sure you'll love the place! Just go there once and you'll get hooked! You can book your passes right here.

For all the college going students out there, Smaaash has a wonderful opportunity for you all! They have a Campus Ambassador program open to all of you except the ones in their final year. The job description includes being the point of contact for anything Smaaash related for their respective college, spreading brand awareness and organizing events either on or off campus. Sounds like a lot of work right? But they have some great perks along with the program like a work certificate, discounted games, payment based on the events organized, access to all Smaaash events, a chance to meet Sachin and Virat and my favorite - a chance to win a free trip to Goa!! All interested can drop in a mail at or a message on +91 9071130099. So what are you waiting for? Go apply! :D

Have a great weekend guys! Enjoy Christmas with lots of cake, presents and love and we will be back next week with another story!

MYD :)
