The largest sports and adventuring fair in the Nordic region, Playpark, will open its doors at Refshaleøen in Copenhagen this weekend.

Open from 9 am to 6 pm from March 19-20, the fair will offer up to 50 free live activities and 100 top brands and give visitors the opportunity to try out everything from scuba diving, bungee jumping and fencing to archery, paintball, gladiator battles and weightless running.

So come down if you’re hankering for a new hobby or just looking to reap the benefits of getting your pulse up. No, seriously. There are actual financial benefits for spiking your pulse. If you show up with a pulse of 120, entrance is free.
