How to curb the obesity epidemic- be active with all day family fun at Super Park Malaysia

Growing up in the city often means less space to exercise as well as more screen time. Coupled with parental guilt due to long working hours,  quality family time is often spent having expensive meals out. These are definitely not helping to tackle the issue of obesity, starting from bad habits in childhood. Childhood obesity is the root for many chronic  noncommunicable diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Read this article published by UMSC to understand more about this issue.

Therefore,  keeping everyone active is essential in combating this crisis. One of the ways is spending a fun day at indoor playgrounds such as Super Park Malaysia! Birthday party packages also include private gathering area in which food catering and cake can be arranged.

Let's pose at their Halloween photo booth before heading in! Some children dressed up for tricks or treats as well. We got the whole day pass at RM70 each person (fees charged from 3years old) so we could explore the park at our own leisure with multiple entries and each armband has complimentary access to a locker. Dear parents,  this is not a daycare centre though so please supervise your children at play.

The park has 2 levels.  The entrance on level 4 directly leads to young children gym (under 100cm) which features a huge ball pit,  climbing ladder and monkey bars.

Bing boy is just around 100cm which means he could access most of the play areas.

Green slopes with climbing ropes,  stepping stones as well as slides for the slightly adventurous.

There are also multiple ball games- basket ball throwing, life sized pinball, goal shooting, indoor soccer, baseball down to air hockey and table soccer to suit children and adults at all ages. 

Haunted house is one of our favorite with multiple dim litted tunnels, maze and slides which connect level 3 and 4. The transparent connecting tube is not for the faint hearted. And the spooky sound effect during their Halloween celebration adds up to the excitement.

Many young children do not have the energy to go through the whole circuit of pedal car. But Bing boy was the exception. He did it all on his own for a total of 5 rounds! He even did flying fox without falling off the seat. Bravo!

The only thing he does not enjoy is ice skating. He has never quite gotten the ability to balance on the ice skates. Mommy can balance herself but am not good at it either. That's why we both have to hang onto the sides of the rink and decide to get off after 10 minutes which is just the time limit anyway.

Air hockey is a great sport and Bing boy manages to get a few acquaintances in the process.

Besides this,  the augmented reality game is another activity great for team building or family group.

Even though Super Park is really packed,  we are impressed at how clean and tidy the facility is. Plenty of lockers are provided to safekeep personal belongings with shoe racks nearby. There's a separate sitting section for those waiting with many sockets to plug in your phone or laptop or even to grab a quick bite. Washrooms and baby rooms are equally hygienic and pleasant with a cosy breastfeeding couch and water filter.

The day pass is definitely worth getting. There are so many activities which await children and adult alike that there is simply no time to feel bored and start scrolling the phone! Try Super Park and let me know what you think.
