Activities: MegaKidz (Jungle Gym)

With Aristotle on holidays and the boys tearing up the house, I thought it was a good idea to unleash them at a jungle gym. Although MegaKidz at Midvalley Megamall has been around for eons, we have never been there before. What’s it like and is it worth checking out? Here’s what we saw…

Facilities:

They have the jungle gym which consists of a network of climbing towers and slides. Hercules, who is 2.5 years, has the physical capability to handle this part of the gym however his height disadvantage makes it too challenging to climb the towers.

They have an interesting spiral slide that I think is about 2-3 storeys high. It is definitely not for claustrophobic parents/guardians – even I felt a little panicked in there on my first ride down.

There is a toddler play area for the younger children, although Hercules wasn’t at all interested in it – he only wanted to climb the tallest tower and slide down the large spiral slide. Because of the height challenge, I had to follow him to give him a leg-up the towers. That also meant having to crawl through the tunnels which was hard on my knees (note to adults – bring knee pads).

They also have a bouncy castle.

And a cinema screening childrens’ movies (below is the waiting bench outside the cinema and the program for the day). They play two programs during the weekdays.

What we thought…

Hercules loved it and couldn’t get enough of the place. He howled when it was time to go. Aristotle was done after an hour and more than ready to go home because he was sick of following Hercules up the tallest tower (and probably physically pooped too because he lacks Hercules’ stamina for these things). As for me, I won’t deny that it was great exercise but the crawling was a bit much for my knees that have been through a little too much wear and tear. The bending was also rough on the back. Yes, I can’t believe I wrote that…
