The best indoor playgrounds for kids in Singapore

Too hot or rainy outside? Let your kids run riot at these adventure indoor playgrounds

School holidays or not, when the kids have to play, it's best to take them out of the house once in a while. While it's a no-brainer to allow the kids more screen time to keep them occupied, it's a slippery slope you don't want to start on. Instead of keeping them homebound, let them run riot in an indoor playground. Rock climbing, trampoline arenas and obstacle courses sign them for a day of madness (and fitness) at one of these outdoor playgrounds.

Things to do Yishun

Calling all NSmen – there's a new place to kick it with the fam. A colossal playground for the young and the young-at-heart, "Singapore’s First Smart Clubhouse" boasts the city's largest multi-installation indoor hub, and first indoor Player versus Player (PvP) airsoft arena. The little ones will love the indoor playground inspired by the Peranakan culture complete with a climbing slide tunnel, a sports pitch, a foam ball shooting arena, an interactive trampoline, a ball pit, and a ninja course – all designed to engage the senses.

Things to do Jurong East

Escape the hot and humid Singapore weather to experience the cold and snow at Snow City. Gather the family and dress up in matching winter gear – don't worry, these are available for rent – and stomp around in the snow. Slide down a 60-metre snow slope, take photos with life-sized snow sculptures in the artic playground, or get toasty in an igloo home. Older kids and kidults can head to the new Winter Shooting Arena for a paintball session with a snowy spin.

Play among nature at Jewel Changi Airport’s massive indoor wonderland. Weave through various mazes, bounce on nets, slide down an art sculpture, and admire the stunning views of the HSBC Rain Vortex and Shiseido Forest Valley from above a glass bridge. Alternatively, take a breather at a misty garden, snap a selfie with the many animal topiaries, and stop and smell the roses at a floral fantasia.

Over at Changi Airport Terminal 3, the kiddos can have their fun at the Cartoon Network-themed Play! indoor playground. The star of the show is a Powerpuff Girls interactive game that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to transform players into one of its adorable hero characters. There are also Ben 10 play spaces including ball pits and slides. Parents, don't worry – the playground is padded out to the fullest, with soft-fall floors.

Things to do Games and hobbies City Hall

A huge hit with the kids and kidults since the late 80s, the iconic Nerf brand opens the 18,000-square-feet dedicated Nerf entertainment centre that encourages active learning and team bonding. Get your heart pumping at multiple indoor themed activity zones that test your agility and creativity through active play, teamwork and more. And if all that shooting and dodging flying pellets got you working up an appetite, refuel at the food and beverage areas. There are also retail stalls with exclusive Nerf merchandise for you to expand your arsenal.

Kids City Hall

The massive indoor playground at Marina Square is an interactive play space for children 12 and below. Kiztopia offers an environment where kids can play and learn valuable skills as well. Let them loose at the bouncy castles and trampoline arena, pick up cooking, driving and more at the role playrooms and even bring home the goodies they have made in the kitchen.

Kids River Valley

After a major facelift in 2019, Amazonia is back with an arctic theme that's oh-so-cool (see what we did there?). Kids can go down the city's highest indoor wave slide, jump around on the netted trampoline, and dive into the snowball pit (no actual snow included). There's also a massive 3,000-square-feet play-gym which features kid-friendly challenges for the active tykes. Babies, on the other hand, can enjoy themselves at the soft-play area which is separated from the larger children's area, and features a mini slide, ball pit, interactive play panels, and swings.

Kids Punggol

Splish, splash, splosh with the little ones at this indoor water wonderland. And by little ones, we also mean that babies under 12 months get to enjoy free entry. The water playground stretches out to 23,000 square feet, with five slides and eight play decks that are all interconnected by climbing structures. Big buckets of water topple at random over a few areas, so expect most children to cluster around that splash pad to get dunked. For those with tots aged 18 to 36 months, head over to a separate wading area where water jets gently spray streams at you.

Keppel Centre for Art Education

Kids City Hall

The concept here is simple: to stimulate children’s curiosity and imagination through – what else – art. The centre is divided into several zones, including a museum and workshop. But the highlight is the Art Playscape: in it, visual artist Sandra Lee constructs The Enchanted Tree House, a fantastical play area inspired by the pages of a children’s book. Her illustrations – of giant sea monsters, lush forests and imaginary creatures – literally spill onto the floors, walls and ceilings.

Art Marina Bay

Take your kids on an artistic adventure at the museum's permanent exhibition, Future World – Where Art Meets Science. Together with digital art installations by teamLab, a trip here will light up your kids’ creative bulb where they can watch their 2D crayon creation transform into animations, create thrones out of colour-changing blocks, and go down an interactive slide.

Bounce Singapore

Kids Orchard

There isn’t a moment of stillness at Bounce Singapore, where you can jump off walls and fly through the air. This addition to the trampoline scene has three areas designed for different interests and various levels of difficulty, so young tots, older teens, adults and even fitness enthusiasts are catered for. Got a pre-schooler in the house? Specifically designed for kids aged three to five, KinderGym is equipped with a safe, multi-sensory environment to give them their jumping fix.

Buds

Buds

This indoor and outdoor play space doesn't come cheap but it's popular for its interactive elements and well-designed spaces (this is the Shangri-La after all). The little ones will have a blast making their way through everything from a sandpit, to going down slides and climbing nets, getting lost in ball pits and mazes, playing outside in the free-form pool or water play zone, or living out their pirate dreams climbing the very realistic pirate ship structure.

Sport and fitness Leisure centres Kallang

They say everywhere can be a playground – that's certainly the case for Airzone, the world's first indoor suspended net playground. Occupying the mall atrium space between different floors in City Plaza Mall, be prepared to explore the multiple play areas where you can dive in a ball pit, crawl through a maze, climb to the top (it's six storeys high) and try out the slides or just hang out on the suspended nets.

Tayo Station

Kids Play spaces Pasir Ris

Themed around the popular animated series, Tayo The Little Bus, this South Korean indoor play park makes its first international outpost in Downtown East. It's a whopping 10,000-square-feet space complete with a playground, a sensory play space, and a toddler area for younger children. The main star, however, is Tayo's Road Circuit where the kids can zip around in their mini manual rides and make a pit stop at the mini garage, car wash, and gas station.

KidsSTOP

Kids Jurong East

This edutainment centre uses hands-on activities and facilities to introduce the wild world of science to those aged 18 months to eight. And, as you’d probably guess by now, gravity’s a big part of it. Enter The Big Dream Climber. This fantastical two-storey-high wall features elements plucked from the mind of the Mad Hatter: hanging doors, flying fish, giant gears and huge leaves greet kids at every corner. And if they manage to scale the wall, they’ll arrive at the Music Zone, where they can go nuts on drums and organs, constructed from PVC pipes.

Pororo Park

Kids City Hall

For those in the dark, Pororo is an intrepid penguin (who dreams of flying) from a Korean cartoon – and this indoor theme park is dedicated to the character and his friends. Let your children run amok here: they can hop on an actual train with Eddy the fox as he takes you on a tour through the grounds, peek into Pororo’s icy home and dive into a ball pit. And while the big kids can climb and duck through jungle gyms, tinier tots have a dedicated toddler’s area with foam mats and soft toys.

Polliwogs

Kids Tampines

Bathed in bright hues that are bound to attract the tiny tots, The Polliwogs features bouncy castles, climbing walls and fun slides. Its state-of-the-art play equipment also allows easy bonding between parents and children. There's also a separate play area for younger children. Planning to have a birthday bash here? The Polliwogs also hosts parties where you can choose from a range of themed party packages, from laser tag parties for energetic kids to junior chef parties for aspiring cooks.

T-Play

Kids Bukit Batok

Future high-flyers will be thrilled at the options available at this 4,200-square-foot transportation-themed playground. The main play area, best suited for older children up to 12, has tunnels, obstacles, suspension bridges, spiral tube slides and two trampolines for them to hop around amid cushioned walls emblazoned with decals of planes. The toddler area, meanwhile, has mini slides, a ball pit, foam blocks and larger-than-life, Lego-like stackable blocks designed to train motion coordination. Parents can either keep an eye on the kids from a distance, or, if you’re super chill, leave the nannying to the staff on the ground.

Clip 'n Climb Singapore

Sport and fitness Tampines

Think of it as a giant Tetris game, this multi-coloured climbing playground from New Zealand has 19 walls with each featuring a unique vertical challenge that requires you to use both brain and brawn. Take on the 'glass' wall where you can climb face-to-face with your buddy, or the Lit 'n Climb on Friday and Saturday evenings for pumping beats and cosmic lighting. Plus, Clip 'n Climb is family-friendly too, so you can bring the active tykes for some daytime wall crawl.

The Artground

Kids Play spaces Marine Parade

This venue is temporarily closed.

It's not too young to introduce art to the kids. The Artground in Goodman Arts Centre offers many art-centric and art-related programmes that help nurture creativity and curiosity in children aged 12 and under. Besides the actual playground aspect of it – think interactive art installations that the little ones can actually touch and climb – other activities kids can get involved in over the weekends are gardening, performing arts (music, dance and drama) as well as arts and craft activities.
