Downtown East Now Has A Huge Indoor Playground With Themed Inflatables, VR Games & Life-Sized Robots

Let’s Play @ D’Marquee

Wild Wild Wet and chalet staycays are usually what we think of when it comes to Downtown East. Adding to the list of family-friendly activities is Let’s Play @ D’Marquee, a new indoor playground opening from 7th May to 26th June 2022. With over 22,000sqft worth of activities to indulge in, this place offers more than just bouncy castles. 

From walking dinosaurs that you can hitch a ride on and a VR battle game where your survival instincts will be tested, to life-sized robots which you can move around in, here’s what you can expect: 

Battle & be the last man standing

Be warned, this game’s not for the faint-hearted – expect fearsome zombies and vibrating floors to stimulate the attacks. As you step into the Virtual Reality (VR) Shooting booth, you’ll be greeted with various battle equipment – AKA machine gun controls and VR gear – for a battle you can take on with your friends. But hey, brave souls can opt to fight alone too. 

Gung ho kids aged 5 years old and above are welcome to join and experience the thrill, and those who are under are encouraged to play with parental supervision.

Be one with a King Kong robot

Similar to how Tony Stark dons on his Iron Man suit, there are life-sized King Kong robots for both kids and adults to suit up and move around in. 

The controls are simple – use the 2 joysticks that are attached to the robots to manoeuvre it. Sit tight and stomp around the grounds, and remember to snap a ton of pics to commemorate your transformation into a human-robot hero. 

Ride on a roaming dinosaur

Imagine Jurassic Park, but IRL. Instead of fleeing from hangry dinosaurs, you can get on their backs and hitch a ride.

Kiddos with an affinity for the scaly giants can saddle up and roam around on the likes of a triceratops, stegosaurus and even a tyrannosaurus rex while humming along to the tunes of popular CoComelon nursery rhymes. 

Bounce around 8 themed inflatable courses

No playground is complete without bouncy castles, and this new space boasts of 8 different types of inflatable courses, perfect for kids to bounce around to no end, and even make some new friends.

Look out for the Gladiator Ball Fight which will have players battling it out in zorb-like bubbles. You can bump about – or roll around – and challenge your opponents to an MMA inspired scuffle.

Slides are essentials for every playground, and this one takes the cake with a 4.8m slide that’s cushioned on all sides for a soft landing. Don’t forget to check out the bouncy maze that’ll have you and the kiddos crawling through holes to get to the other side.

There’s also a 4.8m-tall vertical climbing course. The catch: there are obstacles along the way so your journey to the top isn’t all smooth-sailing. Little ones can challenge each other to a game of strength and speed and see who’ll emerge first.

Others include a tropical-themed set with mini trees to hop around in, a play area that’s akin to a ball pit with bigger balls to pelt your pals with, a vertical bouncy castle which you can whiz in and out of and an obstacle course where your balancing skills will be tested.

No need to make a trip down to Sentosa’s Palawan Beach as there’s also the Sandbox Play that’s perfect for burying your toes in and building sandcastles.

Not forgetting the classic ball pit, filled with colourful balls for the kiddos to dive and roll around in.
