Ready to ride a robot or a giant dinosaur, bounce through eight of the biggest bouncy castles in Singapore, or chillout in a huge ball pit? Do all that and more at this brand new pop up playground, Let's Play at D'Marquee, Downtown East.
There is no shortage of indoor playgrounds in Singapore, but we’re always excited to find out there’s a new one! We visited a brand new pop up adventure playground filled with some of the biggest bouncy castles we’ve ever seen! Little ones can spend hours of fun racing around the bouncy garden, hiding in the mini maze, climbing the bouncy slides and digging through the pebbles in the ‘sandpit’. Add in super fun electric robots and dinosaur rides the kids can drive themselves and a VR shooting game, and the whole fam is bound to have a great time. Here’s the lowdown on what to expect…
All you need to know about Let’s Play at D’Marquee Downtown East!
Go prepared and book your tickets online
Follow the usual best practices when attending an indoor playground – wash hands regularly, take water bottles for everyone, and don’t forget to pack socks! The sticky-bottomed kind to make climbing easier and prevent slipping on the bouncy castles are best. Also, book your tickets online to avoid disappointment, and have your QR codes ready for scanning on arrival.
Psst.. It’s fun with friends! Now that there are no more restrictions gather a big group and let everyone loose at Let’s Play! We had a huge game of tag going, and it really upped the fun levels.
Let’s BOUNCE! There are 8 (yes, 8!) big bouncy castle themes
The bouncy castles are set up in a way that creates a ninja-run feel so that you can set up challenges. Our older kids loved timing each other to see who could race around the castles the fastest. There are two sets of tall bouncy slides, and climbing those can be tricky for younger ones. Littles will have a tonne of fun in the mini maze, and there’s an inflatable ‘boxing ring’ with huge bouncy balls that toddlers were loving rolling to (and over) each other. The trickiest challenge was the inflatable wearable balls, which look so cool in the pics but are actually quite heavy to put on!
Need a rest from bouncing? Let’s DIG!
There is a ‘sand pit’ filled with pebbles set up on the stage area. It’s filled with digger trucks, buckets and spades. This is a really great sensory play experience and offers a little bit of quiet time if anyone needs a break from bouncing (parents included!).
Test your skills in a VR shootout
Outside of the bouncy area is a tent where you can find the additional rides. There’s a Virtual Reality game, complete with a laser gun and those fetching giant goggles. This one is for older kids, and there is only one VR game, so that lines could get long at busier times.
Dinosaurs you can drive!
This was fun for everyone, and you get a five minute ride for each ticket holder. Drive a stegosaurus or a brontosaurus around the yard and bring out your inner dino! They are made of super soft spongy material, however, they are a little speedy, so probably best to ride with your younger kids for safety.
And don’t forget the ROBOTS
Fans of transformers will love stepping into their very own robot suit and riding around the yard! There are dual controls, and the robots stop if they come too close to each other, so there’s no risk of collision. Press all the buttons on the controllers for cool sound effects. We giggled like crazy over this one as they are quite slow, and everyone just looks hilarious when encased by a giant robot!
