Ten thousand square feet provides a lot of room to run, and at Koalakidz, the staff makes the most of it. The space holds activities aplenty for kids to burn off steam, with mini soccer and basketball sets, and an area dedicated to toddlers complete with padded flooring and toys. Wee ones flock to the exploration area, a 3,000-square-foot structure, with twisting tube slides for whizzing, tunnels for wiggling, and a ball pit for practising the backstroke.
In the middle of the space, a rainbow-coloured row of six slides ripples to the ground, while on top a giant koala head disguises spying children who peek through its eyes to get a look at their surroundings. Younger tots can cruise on kiddy rides, while their older siblings take on the arcade games. After, kids can refuel at the Koala Kafe, while parents take advantage of free WiFi. The staff draws return visits by declaring themed days—such as pyjama day or funny-hat day—and arranging visits from beloved cartoon characters.
