Jurong @ The Canopy, Indoor Playground ~ KIDS AMAZE

Our first trip was during the pre-opening of SAFRA.
We were invited to come and try out the facilities
before the public. Children and adults came out with
some scratches and small cuts (from the slides). Daddie
checked into the playground area while Mumsie & I chilled
out at the sitting area near the pretty, bright, orange lockers.

We decided to make a return trip there on DD2's birthday last
October and she said that was her best birthday ever. :hugs:

Upon reaching the entrance of SAFRA, we immediately saw the
indoor playground entrance beckoning to us. :wink:

Image

Upon entering the premise, we were greeted with a huge
3-storey indoor playground space! Awesome structure! 8)

Image

We checked out the rates and checked in the two eager girls
into the play area. They were already jumping around in
anticipation! :lol: You guys can check out the rates below.

Do note however, they have different rates for Public / School
Holidays. If i remember correctly, they also have different rates
for weekdays and weekends.

Image

Image

Hubs took leave that day and i am a SAHM, hence we made
use of the cheaper weekday rate. :wink:

Upon payment of the charges, the girls were given a stamp
to officially allow them into the indoor playground... and they
were told to sanitize their hands. In fact, we actually already
asked the girls to go to the toilet first and have their hands
washed prior to making payment. The stamp allows children
to go in and out of the play area to go for a break... for any
toileting needs... to rest awhile... or i suppose even for some
40 winks! Especially for the younger children... they CAN get
tired.. :wink:

Hubs and i didnt' accompany them in to play. We went around
recce-ing the place & eventually sat down at the cafe to have
some snacks. I'll get to the snack part later. :evil:

There was a snakey yellow slide which the girls have taken
with Gramps during first visit but not without scratches and
some minor cuts, despite folding their arms in while sliding
down. I wouldn't suggest long sleeve t-shirts cos all that
playing tend to make the kiddies sweaty & uncomfortable.
So, no pain no gain. Haha! :lol:

Image

The long slide ended in a ball pool which the girls really loved!

Image

Image

While recceing around the second level, we chance upon two
massage chairs ($1 token kind). One chair was spoilt then so
hubs and i took turns. It was so-so nia... but for $1.00, guess
it was okay lah.

Image

Within sight of where we're trying out the massage chairs,
there was also a sitting area for children who aren't playing.
Creative area.. we saw some toddlers drawing.. some brought
their own toys to play too.

Image

There were many colourful foam balls that the children could
collect. I saw cuties packing balls into recycled bags available
to be placed into vacuumed holes...

Image

.... that brought all the collected balls into one giant cannon.

Image

In every like 10minutes internal the cannon would auto shoot
all over the place and colourful balls would be raining on everyone.
The girls liked that a lot. :D Almost like the "raining gum balls" kinda
experience Adam Sandler had in his movie; Bedtime Stories. 8)

Image

Hubs and i sat down for a tea break after the recce-ing around.
I ordered cappucino on that rainy day, soft drink, cheese fries &
the scrummy brownie.

Image Image

The cafe called, Hanis Cafe, also has a small and enclosed area
within sight for children to play. Parents can chill out for drinks,
snacks, catch up on ME time with reading... or free wireless
surfing.. :evil:

Image Image

The cafe also offers venue for birthday celebrations and events.

Now... :?

Where's the picture of that extremely deliciously cheesy plate
of cheese fries? Oooops. :oops: Oh here it is.. :idea:

Image

Did i mention that the cheese fries were scrummylicious?

Well, watcha waitin' for? Dunno what to do with the kiddies
this hols... head on down to Boon Lay MRT station and take
a short walk to SAFRA Jurong today. When you're done there
there's also retail therapy at Jurong Point Shopping Centre....
Mind you, there are two buildings of the mall now.. JP1 and JP2.
Endless shopping outlets and not too mention, more makan places
to try out!

I went there before with DS1. Sadly he did not like it as the loud sounds of the balls being shot out scared him :!:

Hey, we'll most probably be making a return trip there ourselves
too! :wink: Since we're quite occupied with the move & packing..
we're not going for a short trip this March hols. So, good excuse
to return... for the chessy cheesy fries.

Gawd, i can feel it in my mouth now.. :drool: It's just dellicious.

Hey, autumnbronze... share your thoughts from your visit too yah?
There's also a nice pool to swim in and also a place to play pool.
Hanis Cafe has alfresco dining near the pool too, where you can
get heavier stuff to eat for lunch like noodles and rice staples..

There's also Jack's Place if you feel like steak. :wink:

I like the kid's gym there too but never had a chance to see a
class in session. SAFRA also holds quite a new Little Skool House
CCC, CMA, Neuro Tree (etc) just to name a few that i can recall....

It initially scared me too! Hahaa! :lol:
Well, guess your DS1 is still small lah
yah.. My DD2 had gramps play with
her inside there throughout during
our first trip. Now, both my girls can
play on their own and make friends
with other children.

There will be bookfairs / kids' stuff
bazaar there too. So, just to be on
the safe side... bring more $. :evil:

Ya, mrschan.. i feel so too. Thankfully it's not too far out to walk
from Boon Lay interchange / MRT. So, for me.. not too bad lah...
still find it quite accesible. Only no sheltered walkway if it were
to rain. :pray:

The place is huge! Since not that many places allows children to
play together with parents, SAFRA Jurong is a great place for the
westies. Cos the next best wud be eXplorer kids @ Downtown
East... but yah lor... too far. :( Weekdays are pretty quiet
and not too crowded, just how we like it. Great time to chill the
afternoons, be it with other SAHM friends or just some quiet
time on your own... or even to catch up with couple time
with your spouse. :wink:

Buds,

Just to confirm abt the pool that you mentioned. Is it a wading pool or a proper one? Solli, never been there before lah.

If proper one, then prepare to pack matching TYR swim trunks for DH and DS :wink: :wink: :lol:

Okie wait, on 'foresight', I shall go and surf the website. Save you the trouble of replying lah ....
