You are just done with your day and night falls, yet you crave more time with your family and friends out and about. Don’t get constrained with the usual suspects of singing sessions, cocktails and supper bonanzas – many a time, it is when the crowd travels home and the streets get quiet that the real, undisturbed fun begins. From a thrilling sesh of late-night Go-kart riding to enjoying a laidback timeless film with your favourite companions, there are plenty more activities that will get you occupied well into the night.
1. Late-night Go-karting
Singapore’s first and still the only proper competition kart circuit ever designed and constructed sets a new standard in leisure and corporate karting, making The Karting Arena an obvious choice to get an experience of the thrills behind the high-speed wheels.
The fun does not sets with the sun – opened till 10pm daily (except Mondays), switch up the usual movie plans and head on down to the The Grandstand with your pals for a match or two. The after-math endorphins from the stimulating acceleration are sure to last you and your friends awhile.
A fun karting session on weekdays will cost you $25, while that on a weekend will be $30 (excluding a $50 annual license which entitles a complimentary first session), alongside other group/corporate packages available.

2. Remote-controlled (RC) Kite Flying
Set up to light up the Singapore night sky, the community of RC kite flyers at GoFlyKite has grown to a headcount of hundreds. Environmentally friendly, silent and crash resistant, it remains safe and easy for anyone to pick up the art. Let your jaws drop as your RC kite traces a stunning light show with its psychedelic LED lights above our majestic skyscrapers. Pick up some insights on this increasingly popular hobby as you converse with the frequent flyers.
RC kites can be purchased at their store in Chinatown Complex starting from $320 for a half set before you display the applausible manoeuvrability with your personal RC kite with some tall-turns, flips, somersaults and high-G spins.

3. Stargazing Nights at the Science Centre
Enrich yourself on one of the Friday evenings with a trip down to our very own observatory at Singapore Science Centre. Through the lens of the telescope, there will be guides around to help you with the instruments and point out the various constellations that you otherwise would not catch with your naked eye. If you are lucky, you might even be able to spot at least one of the brightest stars – think Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.
Do take note that from 22 November – 30 December 2016, free Solar Observation Sessions will be held in place of the Stargazing Sessions. It is recommended to check out their facebook page for any subsequent updates before heading down.

Change it up this weekend and break into a sweat with your peers – your friends will thank you for the endorphins rush after.
