These New Indoor Playgrounds In JB Have A “Floor Is Lava” Game, Trampoline Park & Mini Golf

JumpLah Playground, new indoor playground in JB


June’s in, school’s out. If you’re planning to cross the Causeway this June holidays, there’s a new indoor playground for your kids to bounce off all their excess energy. JumpLah Playground is located in Toppen Shopping Centre, which is 18-30 minutes away from JB Checkpoint.

Why is JumpLah worth your time? They’ve got “Floor is Lava” games for the whole family to move around and get competitive. Best yet, if your adrenaline is still pumping, head over to Olymkids, a sports-themed playground, right next door.


What to do at JumpLah, JB

Whether you’re a millennial or a Gen Z, you’ve probably heard of the “Floor is Lava” game. Basically, if someone shouts “the floor is lava”, you’d need to think of every possible way to avoid touching the floor since it’s supposedly “lava”. Touching the floor would mean losing the game.

At JumpLah, you’d be able to live this game out with light boxes and sound effects for that additional adrenaline rush. Of course, they won’t be using real lava. Instead, the red-lighted box would represent lava while the green and blue-lighted boxes would mean you’re safe and good to go. The goal of the game is to complete all the stages within 15 minutes.

In the beginning, the game can get pretty fun – hopping around, avoiding the red blocks like your life depends on it. However, as the game progresses, it gets harder and harder. You’ll need to think fast and react quickly. A tad bit of strategisation and agility would come in handy as well.


What to know before heading to JumpLah

JumpLah is an indoor playground that’s suitable for all ages – children, teenagers, adults, and even the elderly – making it the perfect activity for families. It also serves well as a small and cosy team-bonding activity.

Tickets start from RM25 (~S$7) from Mondays to Thursdays, and RM32 (~S$9) from Fridays to Sundays. We recommend bringing grip socks of your own for the experience.

Some general etiquette rules to take note of when visiting JumpLah: Be mindful of your surroundings and don’t push or pull lest you injure someone. Do not hoard the area and be sure to give others a chance to enjoy the game as well.


Pair your visit with Olymkids, located next door

Bundle entries are available for both JumpLah and Olymkids from RM18 (~S$5.17). Playtime at Olymkids is typically about 3 hours.


How to get to JumpLah from Singapore?



Toppen has plenty of kid-friendly things to do, like a splash park, skate park, and cinema.

JumpLah is located inside Toppen Shopping Centre, which is relatively easy to get to whether you’re driving to JB or taking public transport like a bus to JB. If you’re driving, it should take about 18-30 minutes to get ther from Woodlands Checkpoint, depending on traffic conditions.

For those planning to take public transport take bus 170X towards Johor Bahru Checkpoint upon reaching Woodlands Checkpoint. After alightling, walk towards JB Sentral bus stop and take bus T14 towards AEON Tebrau. After reaching, take a 7-minute walk towards Toppen Shopping Centre. The entire journey should take you about an hour.


Bounce away at JumpLah


Some of Singapore’s best kid-friendly attractions may be more crowded than usual this June holiday. But you can always make a day trip to JB. If you’re truly planning to do so, we recommend spending a few hours at JumpLah.

There’s lots to do in JB – from visiting an alpaca petting cafe to a 2 storey glasshouse plant nursery. You can even drop by Penyabong, a quiet beach town in JB, as well.
