Let ’em Play is an indoor obstacle course and Augmented Reality climbing hub located in the West of Singapore. It is suitable for both adults and children. We travelled there by car and managed to park quite easily as there are a lot of car parks available on a Sunday afternoon. It is located at Tradehub21 (around industrial buildings) surrounded by furniture shops, restaurants, fast food, offices and many more. Their nearest MRT is Clementi station.
This was our first visit and we brought my twin nephews aged four and my children along. They have two different price lists for members and non-members. Their activity programmes are split into two: High Elements & Fun Rock Walls and Augmented Reality climbing (60 minutes). We opted for the High Elements & Fun Rock Walls for them. As a non-member, we had to pay $25 for each child plus rental of harnesses for $5 for 90 minutes fun. Happily, adults do not need to accompany our children on the activity and are welcome to sit inside to watch them. Of course, you are also welcome to participate with your children if you wish too.
Both of my children have experience of an indoor obstacle course (we tried it in Merry Hill Intu-sadly closed down) so they were very familiar with what to do. On the other hand, my twin nephews were very nervous and ended up in tears. Luckily, under the obstacle course, there is a kid’s play area where they could play without having to hook themselves onto the secure harness system.
There are two levels of high elements consisting of over 15 different obstacles and both of them did it very quickly. They did feel that it was too easy for them, especially as they have both already completed the four level challenges in Intu and Go Ape back in UK. Even though this obstacle course was too small and too easy for them, for Singaporean children, I do think this place is still challenging enough for them.
There are a total of 5 different types of climbing walls and each with varying difficulty: Giraffe, Let ‘em Play, Tree, Face-to-Face Transparent and Two Speed Walls. Mr K tried them all and he loved the speed walls as he likes to push himself to break his own records. After a few attempts, he managed to climb to the top in under 15 seconds.
Ms C preferred to do the slightly less challenging walls like the Giraffe and Let ’Em Play. The Giraffe wall is the shape of the adorable giraffe which is very easy to climb. The Let ’Em Play wall allows climbers to reach the top by manoeuvring around the letters. All the walls uses a belay system which is brilliant as you won’t need to belay your child. Also there are crew members to help your child set up properly.
Both of my nephews managed to keep themselves entertained for 90 minutes just playing around the Water Drop Net and Clawing Tree House. They were very proud that they managed to climb to the top of the net after many attempts. Bless them! It was a great milestone for both of them especially as first-timers. We didn’t try the Augmented Reality climbing as this is a separate cost.
They all had a fun and challenging Sunday afternoon before we drove to Westgate shopping mall to do some shopping!
