Indoor Fun For Little Ones

3 min read

When the mercury rises and it is too hot to play outside, check out these indoor playgrounds!

The recent spate of hot weather means that it’s not recommended for children to be playing outdoors for various reasons, including the risk of heat exhaustion.
Why not consider taking them to an indoor play area instead – here are five options to consider, some of which offer free admission!

Smigy

The current theme, ‘Many Alternative Possibilities’, focuses on the future of transport, and is conceptualised in conjunction with students from Pathlight School.

Canopy ParkLocated on the top level of Jewel Changi Airport is Canopy Park, an indoor park filled with play attractions such as giant slides and mazes. One of the more interesting sections at Canopy Park is ‘Foggy Bowls’, where four life-sized ‘bowls’ fill up with mist at regular intervals, which should amaze children as they imagine themselves to be playing among the clouds.
