I’ve wanted to review about Jungle Gym in Atria as the best indoor playground we’ve been to, since the first time we went, but either didn’t have the energy nor the time to really sit down and hash it out.
After the second time going to Jungle Gym, and I find myself wondering if my blog will ever expand from its measly amount, I decided to really get to it when both babies (read husband and daughter) are still asleep.
I have to admit that I was still half asleep myself as I forced myself to shower and brush my teeth and make a dash for the valuable time that I have to myself with minimum interruptions.
The first time we decided to go was on Seri’s 2nd birthday on 5th November 2016.
We couldn’t afford to have a party like on her 1st birthday this year, so I suggested to go to an indoor playground and let her push all that bouncy energy she has on all the climbing stuff and slides. I had wanted to go to Jungle Gym since her first birthday, but either Mr Husband was against it or I was also financial incompetent, as usual, to go on our own.
I think I was more excited then Seri was about going to the playground when he agreed to go to Jungle Gym after reading about Jungle Gym Atria being one of the best indoor playground reviews.

Check out their website for more information
I would consider the entry fees pretty expensive IF I had more then 1 child. But consider this, you can stay there or go in and out for the WHOLE DAY.
Anyway, since we only have 1 child at the moment, we are making the best of it. Hold on, it was Seri’s Birthday so that makes her exactly 2 years old, do we pay RM35 or RM58???
Entrance is FREE on her birthday at Jungle Gym.
Yeay! So we ended up paying RM15 just for 3 accompanying adults and another RM5 for additional socks. I usually wear socks most of the time, but Tiyah forgot to bring hers that day.
So remember to bring socks to save more!
The 1st time we were there it was on Saturday and of course, there were lots of kids and parents.
The 2nd time we went it was on Sunday; double the number of people!!!!
I was too engrossed with excitement watching Seri independently climbing and playing around, that I forgot to take pictures most of the time.
Here’s a video of her going down the slide all smiles.
Fuel-Ups Are Available
A few hours went by and we got worried that she was so engrossed with playing non-stop and even refused to eat or drink.
My husband finally bribed her with ice-cream. She never says no to ice-cream. And she sat on a stool as still as a statue (which is a rare thing for her to be; always jumping around this one I tell ya) diligently finishing the whole ice-cream.
And off she continued with her adventure.
5-6 hours later as her energy soon wore off, and us parents totally punctured….
We just plonked on the bean bag to watch cartoons and eat at the nearby seating to replenish our energy. You don’t have to go out to get your food and drinks as they have a cafe and mind you, they also have candy floss to give kids a boost of insane energy supply.
I shall use my good sense and refrain from giving Seri additional sugar high.
As you can see from the picture above, my sister in law was totally knackered from chasing around her son.
I can understand how exhausting it was as we had 3 of us on rotation for Seri, whilst she was on her own. I guess we wouldn’t have been so tired if we had just let them run around and went our own ways. But it really looked like a jungle full of excited kids going loco around, we were concerned (over protective) about Seri being pushed around like a fragile little doll, on the other hand, her cousin had a lot of energy and his mother was worried he would be pushing kids around.
Road to Her Independence is My Melancholy
Anyway, on the 2nd time there I was proud that Seri was no longer afraid nor screaming her lungs out about putting on her hand tag, she even offered her hand to the staff this time.
We still had to bribe her with ice cream once in a while to make sure she takes a break, eat and drink.
I had an emotional breakdown for a while when she bravely crossed the bridge by herself in one of the top tunnels. My baby has grown up!
Kinda puts in perspective of how my own Ibu felt all those years growing up and away huh?!
Why I love Our Visit to the Indoor Playground Jungle Gym
- Seri can use up all her energy climbing and be jumping around the play area and NOT on me
- I don’t have to worry about the weather (it’s rainy season kan now). The indoor playground is protected from weather nightmares
- There are plenty of staffs around watching over kids so they don’t go overboard or get injured
- I can leave my kid there with my helper (or with the staff if above 4 years old), and go shopping/massage/hairdresser in peace. Assured that my kid won’t be snatched away
- I can also join in the fun and realise how unfit I am and mentally note (yet again) to lead a more active lifestyle
- There are a lot of balls there and Seri is crazy over balls. Plus, I don’t have to clean up all the balls after play
- The surau is just around the corner near the entrance
- Several birthday party areas, so I can be assured Tiyah will definitely try her best to get a balloon for Seri before we go home
- Free drinks with adult entry fees which I consider cheap compared to some of the other indoor playgrounds
- Seri soooooooo exhausted at the end of the day, that she will sleep earlier and all through the night – Express Bedtime – me love!
Was it the Best Indoor Playground in PJ?
We’ve only been to 3 indoor playgrounds in PJ. But so far, we were quite pleased with the layout, the facilities & break out space for the amount paid.
Would we go there again? ABSOLUTELY.
My one complaint was not having enough sofas for parents to plonk our ass and sleep!
