This new Indoor Playground opened at the Harfa Shopping Mall which is glued to the O2 Arena. Easily reached by Metro as well as by car. Although it is far from our home district we have been there twice already and we believe the whole shopping centre has a great layout and possibilities for family time.
The Indoor Playground has the same rules as the majority of Indoor Playgrounds in Prague. Kids up to 3 years have to go in with a guardian, kids over 3 can be left there and will be looked after by babysitters.
Firstly you have to register your child in the system. You will be asked for a full name, address, child’s birthdate and your phone number. Next time you come there you just write your child’s name down. I can imagine this might be a hassle for foreigners so you could prepare the information on paper before hand in case they don’t speak English. I am sure they do speak some basic words, but then again – no guarantees.
The playground is marked with the Czech name for Indoor Playground: Detsky Koutek and it is a part of the Toy Shop Bambule. You have to walk into the shop and through it in order to get to the Indoor Playground. I can imagine you may leave with a purchase on your way out – just as we did. We are now proud owners of Lego Ninja!
I especially like the playground’s space. Kids can easily run in circles there on the big carpet. There is also a 2 level climbing frame with slide. Apart from the Indoor playground we had a great time at DINO World which is within the Harfa complex.
What I find tremendously handy is the outdoor playground on the roof of the Shopping Mall. Here you can let your child go wild and spend some time in the fresh air. It is on the same floor where the food court is, the perfect place to leave your husband with mug of coffee supervising kids whilst you go shopping!
There is an Ice-Rink on the roof of Gallery Harfa which is open to all and kids can even take lessons here with instructors. Yet another activity you can do here with kids. Skate rental is right on the same floor. Currently they announce that the quality of ice is deteriorating due to the end of winter so care must be taken and to keep in mind that the rink could be closed soon due to the warmer weather. The prices and opening hours you will find: here Once closed the rink will reopen once Prague heads back into chilly winter times.
