The kiddie party scene in Manila has evolved from throwing parties at home, to throwing them in fast food chains, to renting out event venues and large restaurants, sometimes even hotels. Today, we list down some of the other venues you can consider for your active toddlers or kids as we share with you play gyms and play areas in the Metro! Most of these places have sections for parties so you can have your usual snacks and desserts and send off your guests to an adrenaline rush. Because really, who wouldn’t enjoy giant slides and mazes and running around on a sugar high?
1. ACTIVE FUN (Taguig). Designed by a physiological therapist, Active Fun offers a spacious activity centre that enhances children’s physical and social skills through a padded playground fit for kids and adults alike (you do have to run after them after all!)
