Adventure Zone is a fun indoor playground for children, nested between Shangri-La’s Golden Sands Resort and Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa in Batu Ferringhi. It is managed by Shangri-La and is arguably one of the best indoor playgrounds in Penang, with a clean and well-maintained environment. Both hotel guests and outside visitors are welcomed.
The most exciting facilities in the Adventure Zone are the drop slides and the children obstacle course. There are 3 types of slides. One of them is suitable for most children, while the other 2 have steeper drops that can be challenging even for adults to convince themselves to go up. The obstacle course is good for children to run, climb and break a sweat – good practice for their motor skills.
There is also a section in the Adventure Zone for toddlers, where they can play with colorful balls, a slide, and a small obstacle course. I find this area suitable even for 1-year-old toddlers, with accompanying parents, of course.
There is a sitting area with tables for parents to rest while watching their kids play. It is nice that you can also order food and drinks from the reception.
To keep the facilities clean, everyone is required to wear socks. Children who would like to use the drop slides are also required to wear long sleeve shirt for safety purposes.
The entrance fee for a 2-hour session at the Adventure Zone is MYR 35 for non-hotel guests, and MYR 24 for hotel guests. Adults/parents can enter free-of-charge with paying children. The Adventure Zone is opened daily from 10 AM to 7 PM.
