Learning doesn’t have to stop at school! Located on the third floor of the massive Mid Valley Megamall, Megakidz Funland & Edutainment is a 27,000 sqft learning and play center containing multitude of facilities catering for kids from the age of one to 16. Every inch of this colorful edutainment center is filled with fun– there’s an aviation play system, a toddlers’ corner, an air bouncer, and even a small cinema for your kids to enjoy.
For parents who would like to shop without fuss, there is the ‘Drop & Shop’ program – you can easily drop your kids to for a bit of fun under the supervision of professional guardians for a small hourly rate, and come back again when you’re ready. Alternatively, you can also enquire about their half-day and full-day packages if you’re planning to spend your day at the mall.
Megakidz also organizes classes tailored especially for kids. Lessons such as dancing, music and Mandarin are mostly conducted during the weekends, and usually take between 30 minutes to two hours.
