I have fallen in love with the coolest playground I’ve ever been to in China.
I’m really surprised to find a playground with so many potential accident causing areas considering how many helicopter grandparents live in the country. (Just a tip, if you’re here in Beijing for Chinese New Year, this is the best time to check out this mall since traffic is so great.)
Check out how gutsy it is!
There’s a huge slide that requires attendants teach children how to safely slide down. Kids have to be very careful not to bump their heads.
A fun blaster nerf-gun chamber was a favorite of my daughter’s.
There’s a blimp for bouncing on…
… and a metal slide on the slippery volcano.
This slide requires a snow tube to have fun!
And there’s a kiddie rock climbing wall with foam squares for a short fall…
…plus a monster rock climbing challenge wall for any typical kid.
I also love that there are quieter places for younger kids.
But honestly my kids came here for action.
The prices aren’t bad.
For 18 times for any number of children for a year, it’s1680, making that 90ish per time. (It’s RMB 160 for just one time without a membership.) If you want an unlimited amount of times for a year, it’s restricted to one child, but it’s RMB 2500ish.
In this same mall, there are so many stores available, from an official xiaomi store (which is hard to find) to your typical Starbuck, H&M, etc.
There’s also an ice-skating rink, a virtual reality boutique, and IMAX.
The skating rink prices are RMB 180 per kid or adult for 2 hours. That comes with rental skates. And a membership card is RMB 600 for 12 times, regardless of who is using the card. That also comes with rental skates.
If you’re using an English Didi, type in “Xixo Xi Yue Hua Bing Chang” or look for Shengwuyiyaojidi/ Biomedical Base Subway Station on Line 4/ Daxing Line. Both the rink and the playground (called “Kids Garden” on mall signs) are located on the 3rd Floor.
