Paco FunWorld : Family Amusement Carnival Review



Paco Funworld is back!


Paco Funworld was a familiar name back in the arcade heydays of the 1990s. It disappeared with the decline of arcades in 2000s. With arcade regaining its popluarity, Paco Funworld is back to entertain in a spanking new amusement center at Kallang Wave Mall.

Billed as a family friend arcade center that has everyone in the family in mind, we just have to explore and see if it lives up it's billing.


Paco Funworld different zones cater to different age groups. For the tweens , there is the child friendly claw catchers. For the bigger kids, the arcade awaits. For carnival fans, there are a couple of familiar carnival games to try and for the younger kids, a Ball Pool playground awaits.

To top it all off, a decent size prize area filled with goodies awaits for the winners from arcade ticketed games.

CLAW MACHINES

First up are the claw machines. There are at least 25 claw machines on site. There are machines of various sizes . From kiddy size claw machines to giant claw machine that has jumbo toys for you to win.
