Before we visited Pattaya, I didn’t even know Harbor Pattaya existed. But as we were driving through Pattaya, I couldn’t help noticing banners hanging along the roads advertising this new ‘Mega-Fun Mall’ and ‘Family Paradise’.
The first thing that caught my attention in the poster that greeted us was Harbor Land, which according to the poster was ‘The Largest Indoor Playground in Asia’. But along with it were many other exciting attractions such as Jump XL (a trampoline park), Deep Climbing Gym (a rock-climbing park) and Kidzoona (ANOTHER indoor playground). There was even supposed to be a Snow Land opening Sept 2016, but somehow I didn’t notice it when I was there.
We decided to go from floor to floor to let the kids see what was available before settling down for one of the attractions (which was all the time we had). But the moment we entered the mall, the kids spotted this huge slide in the middle of the mall, which reminded me a bit of The Slide at T3 in Changi Airport.
The slide was free to play, and the escalator to go upstairs was nearby. So they just went up the escalator, slid down, went up, slide down again and again. After they played with the slide numerous times, I finally managed to persuade them to move on to check out other stuff available at the mall.
Level 2 Public Playground
And so, we managed to go one floor higher, only to get stuck at this little playground which was also free of charge. It was meant for toddlers, but MF was quite happy playing there (despite promises of much bigger playgrounds on higher floors).
Level 3 Public Playground
Going up one floor higher, we were stuck at ANOTHER free playground. This was bigger and more suitable for older children. And it convinced MF that I wasn’t lying when I told him there were still bigger playgrounds waiting for us. It seemed like the higher we went, the bigger the playgrounds got.
Mario Land (Level 5)
When we reached level 5, the kids were drawn in by the huge Mario calling out to them. Mario Land was essentially an arcade with lots of UFO catcher / sweet catcher machines. We have plenty of such machines in Singapore, so…. let’s move on!
Molly Fantasy (Level 5)
If you have been to AEON malls in Malaysia with kids, you probably would be familiar with Molly Fantasy. Which is essentially a chain of arcade. So here at Harbor Pattaya, kids can entertain themselves with arcade games at Molly Fantasy too!
Kidzoona (Level 5)
What I found more interesting was the indoor playground called Kidzoona inside Molly Fantasy. I have seen Kidzoona at Johor Bahru before as well, but the Kidzoona here was much bigger than the ones I saw in Malaysia!
The pretend play was really cool too, with little sections for different themed pretend play, such as Pizza kitchen, Sushi kitchen, Post Office, Fire Station etc.
And at the far end of the playground, there were areas for active play with a playground and bouncy castles.
Kidzoona looked like a great playground for toddlers. But for older children, I think Harbor Land on level 7 would be more challenging. In comparison, Kidzoona would be safer and more suitable for younger children.
Just like any indoor playground, there was an admission fee to play at Kidzoona.
Jump XL Trampoline Park (Level 6)
Moving up to Level 6, we found Jump XL, which has a chain of trampoline parks in Europe.
Calling it a trampoline park may be a bit misleading, because the trampoline park was only part of Jump XL. Inside, there were also ‘Ninja Warrior’ courses for both kids and adults!
After going around all the attractions in Harbor Pattaya, MF chose to stay at Jump XL and he super loved the Ninja courses! If you had followed us on Instagram, you may have seen our Instagram story of him completing the Kids Ninja Course. If you missed it, well, too bad. It’s gone. Blame it on Instagram. Bwahaha…
Below is the admission fee for Jump XL.

Harbor Land (Level 7)
And we come to my favourite part of Harbor Pattaya – Harbor Land, Asia’s Largest Indoor Playground!
Harbor Land was so awesome that I have dedicated a full post to it. Check out our full review on Harbor Land Pattaya!
Deep Rock Climbing Gym (Level 8)
Moving up to the highest floor, MF initially wanted to do rock-climbing rather than trampolines at Jump XL. Because if you saw our posts on Clip ‘n Climb in Singapore, MF absolutely LOVES rock-climbing.
However, Deep Climbing Gym was a bit intimidating compared to Clip ‘n Climb, so we passed for now. Maybe next time when MF is older.
