Overall Rating: ★★★★ (4 out of 5)
Timings: 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM
Location: 2nd floor, Kumar Pacific, Shankar Seth Road, Swargate, Pune – 411042, Near Seven Loves Chowk
Parking: It has ample parking space in the basement of the mall. They charge Rs 20/- for parking. There is also a car wash available.
Charges: The payment is very convenient since they charge per ride/play and is done by swiping of a card. Each card is charged Rs. 300/- at the beginning, which you can redeem by swiping at each console. Later you can get a top up in multiples of hundred. The card can be reused at each visit.
Attractions: They have a very well maintained ‘play area’ for younger children with slides, trampoline and a ball pit. This is one of my twin’s favourites. The charge around Rs. 60/- for half an hour. Aside from the play area, there are many gaming consoles for kids aged 3 to 12 years.
Attractions for teenagers and adults: Laser tag, bowling alley, dashing cars, gaming consoles and table hockey.
Safety: The play areas are baby proofed and most of the other games are safe with safety belts proved. But do check yourself for any breakage, since they are quite slow in maintenance. There was a small train ride, which didn’t have any safety belts, but since has been removed from display.
Hygiene: The hygiene is not that perfect but is maintained well with cleaning done every morning.
Staff: The only downside of the store is its staff. They are not helpful and seem lost at times. If you have small children, do take care of them on your own and do not rely on the staff especially in the play areas. Some of the toys in play areas havebroken down like the sea-saw and toy horses which require maintenance.
Snacks: There used to be a café in the store, but they removed it to make more space for more gaming consoles. The third floor of the mall has a food court with leading brands with a lot of variety to choose from. They also arrange birthday parties in the store
Other attractions in the mall: The mall has a variety of branded stores which give a good shopping experience. The mall also has a toy train on the second floor. A double Decker bus ride and battery operated toy cars on the ground floor.
