We were recently back at one of our favourite wall climbing venues in Singapore - T-hall.sg! Our girls (age eight and ten) love T-hall's Fun Zone which has at least 20 thematic walls that make for fun climbs for children and adults.
It must have been about a year since we last visited T-hall's Fun Zone and we were pleasantly surprised to hear during our visit last week that there's now an augmented reality wall - known as the AR Zone - at T-hall! The last time we tried out an AR wall was at Climbers Laboratory which, unfortunately, is now closed. But I remember the kids having lots of fun with it!
What do you do at AR walls, you say? Before going to Climbers Laboratory I used to think AR climbing walls are just about hitting objects on the wall but it's actually a lot more fun and interactive than that. There are plenty of games you can choose from at the AR wall but here are a few of the games we played:
This one is an individual game where you have to navigate your way across 'electricity' to hit the end button. If any part of your body or clothing touches the 'electricity', you get 'zapped' and you lose.
Or fancy a 'football' session?
Whack a bat?
Pop some bubbles?
Shoo some 'shadowlings' to the 'light'?
The AR Zone makes for a great bonding experience for the whole family. I see my kids working together to play the games, and I can imagine it being really fun for the whole family when you work together or challenge each other in the games.
Our kids attention were also taken up mostly by the Fun Zone walls but the AR Zone was a nice variety to have, and also a good way to let your kids try it out before booking a half-hour session for the whole family.
Each session at the Fun Zone is for 1.5 hours and costs $35 for the public and $28 for members. You can also get the Fun Zone multi-pass at $150 for 5 visits. As I had already reviewed T-hall's Fun Zone previously, I won't go into details as the walls haven't changed much. But overall you can expect at least 20 super cute walls to scale at the Fun Zone.
It also has an exciting obstacle course called the Leap-of-faith.
This kids boulder wall, which previously had a separate charge, is now included in the Fun Zone.
Other than having really enticing cute walls, I love how cheery and well-lit T-hall is. Its centralised location at Crawford Lane in the Lavender area is also a plus. Whether you want to try out the AR walls or not, its Fun Zone walls are definitely worth taking your kids for a visit!
Bonus tips for your trip:
- See other T-Hall post for visiting tips.
-T-hall is located at 464 Crawford Lane, Singapore 190464. The outdoor car park at Crawford Lane is quite small and often full. The next nearest and bigger car park would be diagonally across the road at Golden Beach Vista, 13 North Bridge Road.
