If you live in Bangkok with a toddler or a young child, chances are that you’ve heard of the Funarium. This facility of 2,000 sqm offers kids with a great indoor park to play, and has something for every taste and age!
The Funarium is divided into 7 zones that provide different sorts of interest for all visitors (including parents!):
- Play zone for toddlers
- Play zone for older kids
- Sports zone
- Climbing wall
- Activities zones
- Coffee shop
- Party zone
Toddler Play Zone
This zone is designed for babies and toddlers, and contains soft play equipment that aims to promote child development: the environment is safe for crawling or walking on a soft surface. This zone is located next to the coffee shop, allowing parents to sit and relax while their toddlers are enjoying themselves in the small ball pool.
Older Kids Play Zone
For older kids, this area is a heaven, as they can climb and slide over a two-storey play structure. My daughter is only 2.5 years old, and can easily adapt to playing in this zone with the older kids. She doesn’t need much help from us in getting around this structure. Basically, for a mom, taking her to the Funarium before her naptime is a great way of ensuring a peaceful afternoon!
This area is an extension of the zone described above, and contains a bicycle rink and football/basketball court.
The wall is located on the left side next to the entrance. I wouldn’t recommend it for kids younger than 4 years, as they need to have strong motor skills in order to climb it securely. However, having tried a climbing wall once myself, I find it to be a great sport for exercising the whole body. So if your child is ready, don’t hesitate to introduce them to this activity.
Kids who like to enjoy a quieter time can enjoy the arts and crafts activities. Next to the coffee shop, I found a small booth that sells personalized hats, shirts and bags. We opted for a small bag, which my daughter had the chance to paint on. While some of the activities are free of charge, this one was paid for, so you might want to ask the assistants about the fees before engaging your kids in any activity.
The coffee shop is large and spacious, being able to accommodate 150 people. It serves different snacks and meals that kids like (hot dogs, pasta, and pizzas), making it convenient for parents who wouldn’t need to worry about planning meals for their kids.
The Fun-arium offers different party rooms on the second floor, and is great for children’s birthday parties. For more information about this service, I suggest that you get in touch with the Funarium’s office directly. The contact details can be found at the bottom of this post.
Opening hours: Mon-Thu: 9 am – 6 pm, Friday-Sun: 9 am – 7 pm
