LOL Playland @ JCube (Jurong East)

Monday, 6 March 2017

When My Little Giant opened at Big Box, we were elated because, frankly, there were not many choices of indoor playground in the west area of Singapore. A few months later, another new indoor playground, LOL Playland, popped up at JCube. Together with the free outdoor playgrounds at Westgate, JEM and IMM, there are now so much choices for those living in the west. Cheers!!


LOL Playland is located within JCube, which is near Jurong East MRT Station. Located on the third floor opposite the ice-skating rink, LOL Playland is not those super big indoor playground. Although it is not as big as the main players in the indoor playground industry, it can still provide lots of fun for the children. Not forgetting, there are also advantages of playing in a smaller playground.


Active Play Gym



The main play area in LOL Playland is this 3-storey active play gym, which provides lots of climbing opportunities for the little ones. A problem faced by most parents who follow their children through a climbing structure is having to bend low. However, the height here is quite comfortable for me to navigate the gym.

The main highlights here are the slide and trampoline, which my boys absolutely enjoyed. They had slide down and jumped infinity times on these.







Toddler's House



Next to the main active playgym is the Toddler's House, which is a two-storey play structure catered for the toddlers. On the lower floor is a pretend play cafe / supermarket. When the area gets too messy, the staff came over to tidy up the play area. There are also some activity boards on the wall that help to develop the kids' fine motor skills.



Going up to the second level is a small ball pit and a mini slide. Do note that the steps to the second level is quite cramp for adults.



Pretend Play Houses


Beside the Toddler's House is three pretend play houses to promote creative thinking and social skills. There are matching uniforms and vehicles to complement the different occupations.



The boys had a great time pretending to be a doctor, policeman and firefighter.


Other Activities


Apart from all the play activities, LOL Playland also has activities that are more calming. There's a small reading corner, but the selection of books is quite limited. There are also board games which you can borrow free of charge. You only need to leave a deposit of $20 which will be refunded upon returning the game.



LOL Playland also has some craft activities for the kids to do.


Baby Play


There is a playpen for the small little babies. Although there is not much toys here, it provides a safe enclosure for the babies. This makes it easy for parents who want to bring their older child to the playgound but still have a small baby to look after. Babies less than 6 months old are entitled to free entry.


There is a simple diaper changing station in the party room.


Other Facilities


Like most indoor playgrounds, LOL Playland offers party packages too. More details of the party packages here.

Free Wi-Fi is also available in the playground.


Usually when we go to a indoor playground, we usually carry our bags with us because I'm not willing to pay for the locker. The good news is, LOL Playland provides FREE locker! You only need to pay a $2 deposit for the key, which will be refunded when you return the key. How nice! I don't have to carry my heavy bag around.


Most indoor playgrounds have an elaborated cafe. Unfortunately, LOL Playland does not currenly serve cooked food as they are still in the midst of training staffs and obtaining the necessary licence. However, they are definitely considering serving cooked food in the near future.



Verdict


What I really like about this playground is its size. It is big enough for the boys to play and small enough for me to monitor them without having to go into the play area with them. I also feel safer for the boys as the area is quite contained.

The height of the climb structure is also a comfortable height for adults. I do not need to bend low while following the boys through the gym, which is a bliss for my back. I also like the provision of lockers and Wi-Fi. Together with the comfortable size of the playground, I can really sit-back and relax while still keeping a safe eye on them.

Although my boys are not really into crafts, I like that LOL Playland offers crafts activities so that children are playing and learning at the same time. They also have extra activities according to the festivities or holidays. We went during the Chinese New Year period and they had an angpow hunt game. The boys enjoyed hunting for the angpows to win prizes!

This coming March holidays, there will be a line-up of fun activities too. For more information, do check out LOL Playland's Facebook Page.


Here's a video of the boys having fun at LOL Playland. Enjoy!


Admission Rates


Children can enjoy unlimited play time during non-peak periods (Monday to Friday, excluding School Holidays and Public Holidays) and 2 hours playtime during peak periods (Saturday, Sunday, Public Holidays and School Holidays).



I would highly recommend the Family Membership as it is only $60 for the whole family. This is very worth it if you have more children. Just the free passes are enough to offset the $60 membership fee.


Promotions


For the month of March, LOL Playland is having some promotions. Do check the details on their FB Page.
