THE GARDENS MALL/MID VALLEY MEGA MALL
This two-in-one mall is definitely worth a family day out. The Gardens is the slicker, less busy mall. Right next to its mass market sister mall Mid Valley, together they offer tonnes of options for parents, such as their two distinctive children’s gyms, Kid’s E World in The Gardens and MegaKidz in Mid Valley.
Kid’s E World is well suited to the younger set, as the super foam padded options are great for toddlers and up. MegaKidz is a bit full on, and seems best suited to the kid who wants a running-up-and-downscreaming-all-the-while experience. For frazzled parents, they also
offer a drop-and-shop option at the MegaKidz Creche for RM40 an hour for kids four and up. Their ‘tallest tubular slide’ and ‘longest triple slide’ are real winners among other super-high climbing offerings. If you want to wear your kids out in no time flat, this is the children’s gym for you.
The food courts at both malls offer a dizzying variety of food and beverage options for the entire family. And Parkson in The Gardens offers their usual good-quality family’s room.
