TOP 5 Indoor Games in Bangkok (special family)


 

Bangkok is a huge, bubbly and lively city, so visiting it requires a careful planning, at the risk to transform your holidays into a potential nightmare. We all endured a bad experience, such as a walk in the scorching heat for half the day when visiting the King’s Palace: enough to keep a bitter memory of this superb place, especially for the younger ones. Kids may not enjoy wandering around each market in Bangkok neither.

Nowadays, Bangkok is such an attractive destination for families with kids of all ages, that you should definitely have a look of the alternative activities indoors to do in the city!

 

Lasergame

Are we dreaming or what? The good old 90’s seem to be back in town: a lasergame place, named LAZGAME,  just opened on the fourth floor of the Holiday Inn, located Sukhumvit Soi 22, near BTS Asoke. You’ll find several different game modes in a futuristic 500 m² maze filled with lasers, strobe lights, smoke machines…

Run around, hide yourself, look around you, and just have fun! We recommend it to everyone, from 7 to 77 years old (ideally not before, since you need to correctly understand the rules to play a great game).

Gather your troops and fight your enemies in Alien invasion: a tag-like game in which one of the players is designated as an alien with the power to infect others.

Try also Blaster booster: avoid rival laser and get a super-charged laser power.

Classic Challenger: separated into teams, fight against each other and get the highest score.

Ice rink

Sun is up and hot, sky is blue as the sea, but you’ve got no desire to visit anything today. We have another plan for you: The Rink Ice Arena, an indoor ice-skatingfield, located in Central shopping mall, near MRT Phra Ram 9. Ice-skating is born in southern Finland 3,000 years ago, and such a success does not happen by chance! This entertaining and orginal sport is especially fun to do in Bangkok, to avoid the heat all year long. You may found such places everywhere in the city, from Siam Discovery to Esplanade or Gateway shopping malls, but these are significantly smaller and much more crowded. Kids from 4 years old are welcome and helped.

If you’re lucky enough, you may even meet a professional Thai ice hockey player!

Trampoline

Trampoline was one of the hottest sport trends in 2016 and still is! Located on the 5th of Ratchada Street, the Bounce park claims to be Asia’s biggest jumping spot with its 5,600 m² of fun. You’ll find Bounce Fit Zone if you fancy exercising (we can ensure you, it really worth it!), Mini Bounce for kids and the Free Jumping Zone, just for having fun on huge trampolines and practicing your new moves. All kids from 3 years old and weighing more than 12 kilos are allowed and the Mini Bounce is dedicated to them.

Try as soon as possible these amazing trampolines; we’d love to know about your first experience.

Funarium

If you are looking for the most successful indoor activity for toddlers over there, here it is: the Funarium Indoor Playground, literally the best place to escape the heat in Bangkok. Once you step inside the childproof gates (so our little ones can’t escape!), you’ll discover 2000 m² of activities with large climbing structures, little kids soft games, an incredible sand and water area but also an arts and craft centre to enhance your child ‘s creativity! The entire space is luckily air-conditioned, so that all the children can run around, climb above the structures and simply have fun without worrying about the weather outside, whether it’s raining or simply too hot.

And parents don’t have to worry – you’ll also find a great cafe area, perfect to refill you own batteries.

Museums

Bangkok has a lot of museums in order to teach us about Thailand’s history, but they also opened in 2014 a museum dedicated to the young generation, to entertain them mixing fun and educational activities within the Children’s Discovery Museum Bangkok. Starting with searching dinosaur bones in the archaeological site to create giant bubbles from the inside: the result is actually quite impressive! It is located in the north of the city near the famous Chatuchak Weekend Market, near BTS Mo Chit. Just make sure you arrive in time, since the current opening hours are from 10am-4pm daily. With the help of interactive screens, it calls on a discovery learning process where children are never passive, but actually enter the experience and actively participate in the learning process. It is THE perfect place for inquisitive young minds willing to figure things out as well as for younger kids, touching everything!

You may easily spend your entire day over there, so you’ll have the possibility to have lunch or just a snack within their canteen. You’ll also find a library where you can buy books and educational resources to bring home. Oh, by the way… the entrance is FREE!

By the way, Amazing Adventure Bangkok is well known for its races such as the “Cultural trail” and the “Gastronomic trail”. But it also proposes a perfect trail for kids (between 7 and 11 years old) and a teen race (between 12 and 17 years old). These races allows kids and teens to discover Bangkok through different funny challenges!

 

Enjoy your family trip!
