Indoor Playgrounds in Metro Manila That Have Reopened Their Doors to Public
by: The Beat Asia
With Metro Manila easing back to Alert Level 1, parents are looking for ways to make up for their kids’ lack of interaction with the outside world. The pandemic-induced work-from-home set-up may have allowed parents to spend longer hours with their kids, but we cannot deny the fact that barring our little ones from going outside has also taken a toll on their well-being. Thankfully, we may be seeing some light at the end of this pandemic tunnel amid an easing of restrictions here and abroad, resulting in many recreational facilities reopening their doors to the public. If you are looking for venues where you can let your kids wander around, consider these indoor playgrounds that come equipped with ball pits, playhouses, slides, and more! Be sure to continue to comply with health and safety protocols when you visit.
Spanning more than 1,000 square meters, Shangri-La The Fort’s Adventure Zone houses giant rainbow slides that your kids will surely enjoy. It is now open daily from 9 AM to 9 PM, with a maximum daily capacity of 30 children and 30 vaccinated adult companions (1 child to one adult companion only). Because of this limit, visitors are required to book as early as seven days in advance through this page. Face masks must also be worn always, except when drinking refreshments.
Location: Levels 6, Shangri-La The Fort, Manila 30th Street, cor 5th Ave, Taguig, 1634
After a long hiatus, Pasay-based Cheeky Monkeys will soon open its doors. It teased its reopening on its Facebook page in March 2022, although the exact date is still undisclosed as of writing. Branding itself as an "edutainment," Cheeky Monkeys is best known for its soft play area featuring a water slide, a life-size clubhouse, and a cool disco pen. The place doubles as a unique birthday party venue for kids. Follow Cheeky Monkey's Facebook page to get updated on its reopening date.
