9 Events You Probably Shouldn't Bring Your Kids To

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to bring your kids to an adults-only event?

Maybe your have... maybe you haven't. Who knows?

Well, we certainly wouldn't try to.
Here's our list of 9 events you (definitely) shouldn't bring your kids to.

1. The 13th Door
Don't even dream about taking your kid here. We had a group of fellow colleagues who went there, and they turned into a bunch of sobbing babies within the first room they entered. So... don't even try. The haunted house experience is set inside a troubled boy's imagination, where you encounter a lot of things you'll generally find in horror movies (including potentially getting dragged away from your group of friends-- maybe).

2. Dark Circus Experience: Black Mirror
They've got the pyrotechnics, captivating costumes, and sultry moves: three things that your kids need to steer away from while they're still young. This performance will guide you through the deadly sins, tempting you at each moment possible.

April 20-21
¥130

3. Sleep No More
If the description on our website doesn't warn you enough: this event is strictly 16+, so you couldn't even try to bring your kids in if you wanted to. Sleep No More is an indoor promenade performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, where the audience moves freely through the epic story, thus creating their own journeys through a film noir world.

4. The 4th Edition of Beernanza Beer Festival
It's a boozy event, and you don't want your kids to see you wasted. Let them stay at home, and enjoy a cool pint of beer. Beernanza offers over 150 beers from China and around the world, 3 different music stages, a masterclass on hops, and even a huge group exercise class (to burn off some of those calories)!
