Lie back under the shade of the palm trees at the main pool or head to the smaller pool (with two water slides!) with the little ones. Children can also use up their energy in the giant Sand Pit, or at the Water Park, Indoor Kids Zone and Kids Island Playground, while you burn off the daily buffet/poolside BBQ with a beach walk or run, or at the gym!

You should definitely be believing the hype about Hong Kong’s trampoline super bowl, Ryze Ultimate Trampoline Park (we’ve done our research and have confirmed it is indeed as fun as everyone says it is). It’s not at all pricey, starting at a reasonable $125 for an hour and the whole family can jump in on the fun. Big kids are welcome and we can’t wait for RyzeFit to get started.
These folks have some of the best toys in town in their super playrooms. Their play areas have everything from dress-up corners and craft areas, to a cool multi-sensory room with colors, sounds and things to touch and hold and a family game area. And while it’s really all about creative play, there are organized activities like songs or story time and snack time. The Cyberport space is massive and loads of fun (we love the baby sensory tent), but don’t miss the smaller (and slightly less manic) location in Causeway Bay.
