eXplorerkid E! hub @ Downtown East Reopens!

# Sponsored
Explorer Kids reopens in Downtown East.

The last time we were there, it was during Halloween 2014. At that time, it was one of the giant indoor playgrounds in Singapore. Since then, it has undergone a makeover to keep up with the times.

So what had changed?

Let us take you on a mini tour around the new explorer kid

Play Area
Sand Play (New)

The first play area you would see as you step into eXplorerkid would be the Sand Play session. Using kinetic sand is a great mess-free way to play with sand indoors. Needless to say, this non-sticky sand is a hit amongst the kids. With building moulds provided by the playground, building a sandcastle is as easy as 1-2-3.

Mega Play

The Mega Play is as it was when we last visited. The main change will be the new padded floors. Otherwise, it still proves to be a hit with the kids.

Why change a good thing when it is well maintained?

The Cliff

If your child wants to be a mountain climber, the cliff is where you would start to practise. It is the same structure as it is in the past. This needs to be more utilized than another play area as it is hidden behind the Mega Play area.

Toddler Play Area

For toddlers, the toddler play section has a generous play area. The area is meant for kids aged 4 and under. However, when we were there, this rule was not strictly enforced.

Here you can find a mini boat play structure, toddler rides, tree slides and some padded play blocks. Overall this must be one of the giant toddler areas we have seen in Singapore. There are spaces for kids to run about, and it is very well pad.

Lit Ball Pool

The popular lit ball pool area was a hit in the old eXplorer kids; the lit ball area is still an area but has since scaled down in size.

In addition to that, a smaller ball area is there for younger kids.

Adventure Highland

Another unique area at eXplorerkid would be the Adventure Highland. This is an obstacle course that both kids under 110cm and above 110 cm can enjoy!

The older kids will tackle the obstacles above, while the lower ones are meant for younger ones.
This feels like a mini obstacle course you can find in outward-bound schools. For kids who can't wait till secondary 3 to head to OBS, eXplorerkid will be your next best bet.

The lower section is actually a new addition to the playground. Judging from how Little Lou tackles the course, it can be challenging and a great confidence booster. Adventure Highland is not included in the admission fee. It costs $5.50 per circuit run. 

Party Rooms

There are two new rooms for those looking to host a birthday party at explorer kid. Basic and different themed party packages are available for different needs and group sizes. Do check with them to fund out more.

TV Area
As for parents, no area within the playground allows you to take a break. It is a waste, though, as a cup of coffee would be great while waiting for the kids when they play. Instead, there is a TV corner that parents can use to 'chill'. The corner is meant for kids, but adults might invade it, given the limited sitting space.

Arts and Crafts Area
There is also a nook for arts and crafts. These cost extra to participate.

A nursery for mothers can be found in the playground. The space is small, but it works. It would be great if they could replace the plastic chairs with a more comfortable sofa. For toilets, they are now found outside the playground instead. While we were there, the public restrooms were still under renovation.

For your shoes, it is actually house 'outside' the playground. There is space for a few strollers and lockers for rental.

So what does it cost to have a good time at explorer, kid?

If you are staying around Pasir Ris or having a staycation at D'Resort, a visit to eXplorer kids would be a welcome treat for the kids. Overall the explorer kids may have shrunk in size, but it has up the ante with more play stations. Kids aged 10 and below would be most suitable for this playground.
