There’s a new indoor playground in town… and this one isn’t just for little kids – it’s for the whole family, including the adults. We had so much fun! We also completely tired ourselves out and were all in bed by 9pm.
The brand new SuperPark Malaysia is located on levels 4 & 5 of Avenue K. Take the escalator as if you were going to the food court and go to the entrance on the 5th floor.
I was honestly expecting just ‘another’ indoor playground. So I was in for a surprise: the place was HUGE and there was just so much to do! It really was impressive. Having just opened in December, everything is brand new and squeaky clean.
Immediately near the entrance is a ball pit and soft play area for toddlers and small kids with a climbing hill. There are trampolines for under 7’s, with a foam pit for the more adventurous. There is also a big play structure with a slide that would also be great for toddlers though with supervision – it is big and they might get lost.
I was pleased to see that they took safety seriously and would only allow one child per trampoline, with parents being gently shooed to the side.
We tried our luck on the Ninja training obstacle course and the kids simply loved the zipwire as you get to kick over some large foam blocks.
There are a number of competitive ball games where you need to score points on a timer – like a life-size arcade game. The dads spent a particularly long time here!
Our boys particularly relished the air hockey and table football, as well as the small pedal-powered go karts (the staff were enjoying that one too!). Our friends enjoyed the ice rink – small, but enough for you to have fun and get a taster.
The rest of the 5th floor is taken up by a small ice rink and a skate park. They have skateboards and scooters, with all the necessary safety equipment. Our boys were a bit small for this, so we didn’t actually try section out but it looks great for ages 7 and up – even for teenagers.
Next, we ventured downstairs. It’s an equally massive area and there were so many activities! The giant slide with an inflatable donut was fun, as was the penalty shootout with a robo-goalie.
I had a lot of fun whacking a baseball bat and ball, great for taking any frustration out! There is also a climbing wall suitable for younger kids, as well as two more challenging dangling climbing structures. You will need sports shoes for the climbing, so come prepared if you are keen to do the climbing!
Behind this are the large trampolines for over 7’s. There is a climbing wall and even a cool foam wall which you could throw yourself on and bounce back down. We liked the clever digital games that you play by jumping on the trampoline.
SuperPark Malaysia tickets and visitor info
You can check the ticket info and book your tickets online. In a nutshell, on weekdays you get a full day ticket for RM50, but during weekends and holidays you can additionally get a morning session, an afternoon session or an early evening session. Our session was from 1:30 – 5:30, however parents all ran out of steam around 4pm!
When you arrive, you must first fill out an online disclaimer form for each member of party (there is an option to tick a box so that is valid for the whole year). It is worth noting that it wouldn’t save unless you put in a passport or IC number, so make sure you have all the passport numbers saved to your phone. Note that you will need SuperPark socks, no other grip socks are accepted.
Make sure you take a lot of water. At least at the time of our visit, there was no option to buy drinks. There are toilets inside. They have some seating upstairs for adults that wait, but it is not very comfortable so you might as well join in the fun.
There are free lockers that work with your wristband.
SuperPark Malaysia: we’ll come back!
We went with another family and had a fantastic afternoon. Both adults and kids (aged 4 and 6) had fun, and we were all shattered. Mission accomplished! We could see why the price was RM50 per person (under 2’s are free) – there was a lot of quality equipment, and a lot of staff to make sure everyone stayed safe. The staff were well trained and happy to play a game with you if you didn’t have a partner. While it’s not something we’d do every week (unless they introduce membership), we will certainly take other friends.
I have heard others say there wasn’t that many options for toddlers, but actually I felt there were. However, it is clearly meant for the older kids that have outgrown play gyms, so if you only have a toddler, go to Starlight. But if you have a group of mixed ages, you will have fun at SuperPark. Particularly good for kids above 4, right up to teenagers. Some activities height limits.
It would be fantastic for a birthday party, which they cater for. I’d even say it would be quite fun for a group of adults to go for a fun night out.
