Best Indoor Playground 9: The City

Cannot wait for Kidzania to open in Singapore? Visit The City instead! For younger children from 2 to 8 year-old, The City is an interactive learning playground located in Liang Court which allows kids to role play by taking on different occupations. 

Wear the costume and take photos at each station!
Established in Singapore on 2012 as its first learning playground (winning 2 consecutive awards as the best indoor playground in Singapore), The City supports children’s imagination and creativity by giving them a platform to do so – enabling them to transform themselves into Cooks, Cashiers, Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Policemen and many more while dressed in the respective uniforms and outfits. To further engage them, The City provides realistic first-of-its-kind environments and scenarios where kids can drive on mini streets, and explore small-scale real-life locations, such as the supermarket, cafe, beauty salon, medical clinic and more. 

Cafe The City
I brought my kids there and was pleasantly surprised that my kids enjoyed themselves. My girl loves to shop at the supermarket and she can safely do her shopping without the fear of disturbing others shoppers. The spoilt cash register didn't lessen the fun for the kids.
Professionally calculating the total of our purchases.
There is no guided play at The City, unlike Kidzania. Instead parents are encouraged to play with their kids at the various 'stations'. For instance, we were given a shopping list so the children can look for the items at the supermarket. At other stations like the cafe, I simply order some food and let my kid figure out how she has to cook that with what is available. This can be a con to some parents who may just want to leave their kids to play on their own or are not too sure how to creatively play with their children at each station.  

Sounds like a great place for parties isn't it? 

As for Party Packages (Birthday or others) they have a standard package (with some free play) and one with guided activities, each at a different price per weekday/weekend as listed here.

Kids can drive along a track.
In addition, they offer Private Events (i.e. premium birthday parties, farewell parties, corporate events etc.) which are not listed in the website, those starts at $1500 for weekdays and $2000 for weekends/PH and include the following:

  • Exclusive use of The City Interactive Playground for a private party for 3 hours
  • Timeslots on weekends/PH are limited to 9am-1pm/4pm-7pm, no limits on weekdays
  • Free access to The City for 40 Children
