Kiddies Café JLT
Kiddies Café, an indoor playground in JLT offers one hour of play for Dhs45 per child for non-members, or Dhs30 per hour for members. Kids can go mad climbing and sliding across three levels of fun on the indoor play area and there’s also kiddies village, a small kid sized village where kids aged 18 months to five years can role play under the watchful eye of the Kiddies Village team. All that play is thirsty work so non-members will have Dhs10 left over to get some drinks in from the in-house Moms café.

Play a Round @ Some Nice Place
Featuring an indoor nine hole, par three neon golf course with soft play area and creative arts and craft activities, kids can play unlimited mini golf all day for just Dhs45 each and the price also includes one art activity to keep little hands occupied. There’s an onsite café for parents to relax in (with free Wi-Fi) while the kids play and the Dhs10 left over from the budget can be put towards the wide range of healthy snacks and drinks available.

An all-round family fun park with a soft play area, rides, arcade games, ice rink, 5D cinema and much more, there’s something here for everyone. Unlimited play in the soft play area will set you back Dhs35 per kid, or there’s the option of Dhs35 for an hour of ice skating if that tickles your little nippers fancy. Whatever you decide, either way, you’re left with Dhs30 to spend on drinks and snacks from a wide selection of options at the shopping centre food court, which will keep everyone fed and watered.
