We went for The Little Big Club on Level 2 and 3. Kids had fun, as did I. Like Legoland, the opening hours are a little short. Opens from 10-6pm. We had to budget 30 mins for shopping and didnt get to sit as many rides as we would like to. Food and beverage staff on the Level 3 cafe were very kind and friendly.

Oh, outside food is not allowed - there is a security check. We had to rent a locker to put some buns in it. BUT when we got in we saw a family of 2 old ladies, 2 ladies and 1 man and 4 kids sitting at the cafe area on Level 2, with a HUGE tub of mee hoon, with their disposable paper plates and forks, eating like they were in the dining room. Security was slow to act and by the time they did, the last lady rushed to gobble down her food. I guess, both parties should play a part. One to understand that no food is allowed and the other to actually take action to implement that ruling.

That aside, the staff were helpful and friendly and playland sufficient for young kids. There were some fun rooms, which were indicated on the map but was only for party purposes. Small area but kids below 6 would enjoy. Older ones, probably not.

Just on the second and third floor of the Hello Kitty Town is the Little Big Club - a fun place for little boys and where food are not too cute to eat.
The second floor consists of attractions for little children. It features Barnet, Pingu the Penguin, Angelina Ballerina, and Bob the Builder. Like in Hello Kitty Town, these characters make their appearances once in a while for a cool photo op for the whole family.

Also on this floor, is an arcade game for elder kids to enjoy.

Kids and parents can enjoy the play area here. It's a humongous jungle gym with all sorts of challenges plus a loft where parents can have a cup of coffee.

~In this area, credit cards are not accepted so make sure you have your MYR ready.

The third floor has all the rides and food! Actually, in terms of food, it only has the McBunn Cafe but it serves a good variety of food. Plus, they accept major credit cards here.

Went on a weekday when there were a few school groups visiting, but it was okay. Place was large enough. But this is not really a place where you can spend the whole day, because there isn't really all that many things to do. There were a few performances to catch (The Angelina Ballerina Dancing class was fun for the young girls), the Barney show was okay, but the Thomas The Engine show was rather lacking. 4, 5 hours is very sufficient. Any more, and you need to "invent your own games" with the kids, say giving them certain challenges in the playgrounds etc. That being the case, the entrance fee is a bit steep (esp for non-Malaysians) The good thing is that they allow adults to fully participate in all the rides, playgrounds. So even if you bring a younger child, say 3-4yrs old, and he/she isn't very "brave" yet, you can help your child along by going with him/her.Thing to note is that they DO check ID if you claim your child is below 3. My boy is big for his age, so I had to produce his passport! But the staff are polite and helpful, so the overall experience was good. So if value-for-money is not a concern, sure, your kids will have a good time. But just be prepared to be a bit creative, and participate fully if you want to spend a full day here. If you leave your kids to play while you surf on your tablet, they'll run out of things to do in about 4-5 hours!

Unless you have kids there's nothing for the adults, a lot of playgrounds but nothing more. I would say its overpriced for what it is.
