10 things to do with your kids in Hong Kong

Restaurants

Visit a pet cafe

Hong Kong’s strict residential building restrictions mean not everyone can keep a pet at home – as much as we all might want to. If your family is one such case, take your kids to On Dog Dog, a delightful pet café and watch their little faces light up with excitement. Munch on some food or have some drinks while the children cuddle and play with fluffy, four-legged friends.

Things to do

Jump around

If your child is a spirited gymnast, they’re in for a treat at this massive trampoline park. The daredevils will be jumping for joy on Ryze’s 40 interconnecting trampolines, launching boards, foam ball pools and Ninja Obstacle Course. Lounge back and watch from the side on the comfy sofas and beanbags, or join your kids and get a good workout in!

Things to do

Head to a park with a difference

Hong Kong’s newest indoor activity centre, Superpark has an array of fun family activities for all pre-schoolers and teenagers. Little ones will have a blast in the Adventure Zone with its mini racetracks, giant slides and air ropes, while teens can play football, basketball, baseball, golf and other driving ranges in the ‘game arena’. The ‘freestyle hall’, meanwhile, has more challenging activities such as skateboarding, bullet beds and rock climbing.

Things to do

Shoot lasers at each other

Combine Star Wars and Mission Impossible and you have Lasermads – a spaceship-themed laser tag station in Causeway Bay. Battle it out with your kids at this cracking science-fiction gaming experience. As you wander around the maze holding the laser gun in your glow-in-the-dark vest, you’ll feel like you’re infiltrating a Star Destroyer (or another spaceship of equal coolness).

Sport and fitness

Crossfire Arena

Head over to Hong Kong’s premier neon-lit playground, Crossfire Arena, where you can have epic battles with your children. Young padawans and Jedi masters alike can pick up a lightsaber and learn the ways of the force or challenge each other to a duel. Alternatively, run, kick and smash your way through to the goal in neon bubble suits in a game of Bubble Football. There are also archery war games for all young Katnisses and Hawkeyes.

Visit Snoopy and friends

Tucked away inside Sha Tin’s New Town Plaza you’ll find Snoopy’s World – a small theme park perfect for toddlers. Oversized figurines of Peanuts characters fill the children’s play areas. The place features several amusement zones such as the Snoopy House, Peanuts Academy, Peanuts Boulevard and an adorable canoe boat ride with Snoopy and his friends.

Go for a thrill ride

Experience the thrill of race car driving with your kids without any of the danger. Sideways Driving Club is Hong Kong’s premier virtual racing centre. Using state-of-the-art race-car equipment, they provide an experience that puts playing any home console to shame. Sideways’ adjustable driving stimulators (150cm to 205cm) also mean parents can join their kids in the races.

Things to do

Make some ceramics

icon-location-pin Causeway Bay

Book a workshop at the beautiful pottery and homeware store Loveramics, which overlooks peaceful Repulse Bay. Draw, paint and glaze on your favourite ceramic shapes and have them fired on site. End your session with a cup of coffee and organic tea at the shop and go homeware shopping with your tots.

Bars and pubs

Go bowling

icon-location-pin Sai Kung

Get competitive with your kids on the lanes at Hong Kong’s coolest bowling spot – Tikitiki Bowling Bar. With a Polynesian tiki theme and laid-back beach vibes, Tikitiki Bowling Bar is unlike any bowling alley your kids have seen. Bowl your way to victory while admiring the video wall of Krakatoa Lanes, sipping on fruity cocktails (or mocktails) and snacking on the mouthwatering desserts. There’s something for everyone!

Things to do

Get arty

icon-location-pin Sheung Wan

Is your little one a budding artist? Let them get filthy and creative at MessyJam in Sheung Wan. MessyJam has no specific learning purpose other than letting kids express themselves through play. For one hour, in a controlled space, your children can get creative without any limitations. The founders believe this learning method provides the most effective educational development for a child's brain.
