(SPOT.ph) Going to malls is a staple pastime for Filipinos. Shopping, dining, watching a movie, name it, and you're bound to be able to do it at any neighborhood complex. SM Megamall is a particular favorite for those in the Metro not only because of its proximity to residential and business areas but also because of the sheer number of things you can do there. Take, for example, archery. Bet you didn't think you'd be able to do it in a mall, but at Arrowland by Gandiva, you can release your inner Katniss Everdeen or Hawkeye starting at just P300.

Here's everything you need to know about this indoor archery range:
If it's a fun, competitive, and physical activity you're looking for to pass the time, add shooting some arrows at Arrowland to your list. Located on the fifth floor of SM Megamall's Fashion Hall, this indoor archery range is a great way to amuse yourself while waiting on your friends and family to finish their seemingly never-ending shopping run.
You can start dipping your toes in this new hobby, starting at P300 for 25 arrows. If you're shooting with a partner—may it be your S.O., family member, or friend— you can avail of their 50 arrow package at P590. There are also other arrow packages for bigger groups, as the area has 10 lanes where you and your buddies can take turns shooting. Alternatively, you can also add more arrows to your existing package. But trust us, even an hour of shooting can be pretty tiring already.
No need to sweat about where to get gear for the game. Each arrow package comes with the bow, arm guard, finger guard, and other equipment, plus basic coaching from the in-house range instructors.
If you want to spice your shooting games up, you can opt to swap the usual targets for fun and cute ones like a zombie head, an apple over a boy head, a la William Tell, and many more.
Should you get hooked on this activity, you can take it up a notch by taking formal lessons. Arrowland by Gandiva also has formal archery lesson packages starting at P9,900, inclusive of 15 hours of one-on-one coaching and range use, equipment rental, and targets.
Friendly reminder to bring extra patience. Arrowland by Gandiva only accepts walk-ins, so if you're headed here on a weekend or holiday, make sure to be ready to wait in line. Based on our experience, the queue can get pretty long during peak mall hours on the weekends.
Arrowland by Gandiva is at 5/F Mega Fashion Hall (Building D), SM Megamall, Mandaluyong. Rates start at P300. For more information, visit Arrowland by Gandiva's Facebook page.
