Play Point is an entertainment center and the perfect location for a birthday celebration in Barcelona for those who enjoy action and adventure games.
At Play Point you can choose between playing a couple of rounds of paintball or laser tag, a variation of paintball that is played in the dark, with laser guns, and that was made famous by the character Barney Stinson on the hit TV series “How I met your mother”.
Play Point is located at Carrer de Comte Borel, 88.
Walking on air
If you would like to spend your birthday high up, then head off to Sant Martí, where you will find Bosc Urbà, an adventure park located in the middle of the city.
Spend a couple of hours away from the ground, hanging from zip lines, climbing up nets and stepping on suspension bridges with your friends and enjoying your special day.
