The Soft-Safe Section has a bouncy castle, colourful kinetic sand, a fishing area with magnetic fish and a shelf with books for children.

A wonderland for kids, this section has three levels with kiddie delights such as a ball pool area, trampolines, nets for climbing, slides and a ball-shooting spot. Kids can have a merry time jumping around without the fear of getting hurt as it is child-proofed with cushioned interiors.

What: Fun Planet 

Where: 301, third floor, Block C, City Centre Salt Lake

Open: Monday to Sunday, 11am to 9pm

Expect: A kids’ zone with slides, ball shooting, trampolines and net climbing; a gaming arcade for teens and adults with video games, car racing simulators and a 9D Virtual Reality station. It’s spread out over 4,000sq ft.

Pocket pinch: Rs 1,000 onwards for gaming cards that will allow you to access the games and zones and earn points, which can be redeemed for gifts. For the kids’ zone, Rs 400 per hour for children upto three years and Rs 500 per hour for kids above three years.

GAMING ZONE 

Rescue One!: Based on the idea of a building on fire, this game offers you a chance to be a hero by saving the victim trapped on the top floor and dousing flames on your way up the ladder. 
PeaShooter and Ice Man: Team up with your partner or play by yourself and beat the zombies that come your way with your shooters. PeaShooter launches balls, while water shooters are used for the Ice Man.
Fishing Nemo: Fishing made fun with a Finding Nemo theme where six players can compete in order to get the most number of fish and, therefore, the maximum points!
9D Virtual Reality: t2 had the most fun trying this one out as we were transported to the world of the game with the help of a VR headset. With options such as skiing and boxing, expect a real-life experience with two remotes that help you navigate the game. Word of caution: Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground as you don’t want to lose your footing when you fly off that snow-capped slope on your virtual ski!
#NOM: Fun and games done, dig into a yummy vegetarian snack with options such as fries, popcorn, noodles and soft drinks, available inside the arcade. A snack for two would cost Rs 200-plus.
