There are plenty of options in Kuala Lumpur when it comes to finding something indoors to keep your active little people busy! Over the past 6 months, I (well, when I say “I”, I mean my 5 year old twins with me as their accompanying adult!!) have tried and tested soft play centres around the city. At the time of writing this review (February 2016) all information is correct and all facilities are open and up and running!To help you know which is best for you and which ones we think are worth trying out, here’s our top pick of KL soft play centres in malls but I’m sure I’ll have a few more to add in time 😉
1) This centre only opened in 2015 and really is the one to beat.
Hard to fault with such a massive play space for all ages which includes the main play structure, a football court, sand play, a cinema, arts n crafts area and more.
2) This place boasts the tallest tubular slide in the city and was a big hit with my two! With a large climbing structure, a bouncy castle, cinema and a separate area for toddlers, it’s a really nice option.
3) This is another new one that opened in 2015.
With a space theme, everything is galactic, from the shoot out court to rockets and dimmed lighting it will make you think you are orbiting in space!
An original option with a separate toddler area and cafe.
4) The original Jungle Kids which still offers a great play area for all ages. As a bonus, they have a skating arena should you want to get your skates on!
5) The under 4’s have their very own play space outside in the foyer of the mall with ride-ons, a ball pool and a sand pit.
For the older ones they can get to grips with some impressive slides, climbing structures and a balloon pit which always attracts a crowd! We were nicely surprised by this one….
6) The kingdom of inflatables awaits you here! Get past the giant blow up animals and get to grips with the main play structure, slides and mini basketball arena.
7) An original idea in that it is all made of natural materials – wood and ropes make up this interesting play maze complete with flying fox. Already very reasonably priced, look out for their online promotions which will give you a reduced rate and unlimited play time!
8) A soft play centre for the younger ones with an array of slides, climbing equipment and ball pools. They also offer a number of classes from gymnastics and dance to arts n craft and martial arts.
9) A fairly small centre more focused to the under 5’s that offers a main climbing structure but also an area for building with blocks and an artificial sand pit that turned out to be a real favourite with everyone we saw!
10) The most recent of the Kiz Sports & Gym centres located in Main Place Mall in Subang.
Offering a lovely little section for the smaller tots, as well as the big equipment for the older children, you can even get in a bit of practise at wall climbing.
They run a pre-school in the morning and after school activities in the afternoon which include gymnastics, ballet, taekwondo and kindermusik. Attending any of these activities gives you free access to the play area before or after your class!
So there you have it, now all you need to do is go out and try them for yourselves 😉 Let me know if you have any other soft play centres that I haven’t mentioned so that my two can give them a try!
Enjoy, S x
