Tropical Twist Indoor Play Centre, O'Connor

I never understood why my eight-year-old nephew and six-year-old niece would get so excited at the prospect of going to Tropical Twist Indoor Play Centre – until I went there for the first time this week.

With its huge adventure play structure made up of a seemingly endless maze of tunnels and slides set over three levels, I can see why kids just love this place.

Rest area
The play structure is built over three levels.

Tucked away in the Homebase Centre on South Street in O’Connor, you’d almost miss it among the swimming pool sales centres, but looks can be deceiving. Tropical Twist is over 1,000 square metres in size and has various play areas according to age.

The kids play area is quite amazing – kids can explore the three colourful levels by climbing up and sliding down from various heights, or wiggling and leaping into the ball pit. This area is great for kids aged four and over, while to the left there is another, more challenging structure for kids over six to conquer. They can scale the heights of the tower before sliding down and back up the other side of the structure via a steep, angled climbing wall.

At the back of the play centre are basketball hoops and a bouncing castle with slides. For younger children, the centre has a dedicated toddler area for kids aged one to four, which is full of soft cushioning, simple toys, slides, tunnels and areas to climb. There’s also a trampoline, a ball pit, baby toys and cubby houses.

Tropical Twist has a huge rest area with a café and ample places to sit and enjoy a snack or a spot of lunch. You can bring in baby food and milk but there are hot and cold food choices available for older children. This area has arcade games, rides for little kids and two birthday party rooms – one is a superheroes themed room and the other a Frozen themed room. There’s also a Jungle Room at the back of the centre, which can cater for larger parties.

Rest area
There is a massive rest area with a cafe and two of the three party rooms.

The weekday entry fee was quite reasonable, with $9 the going rate for children aged one to four. Kids aged five and over will set you back $11. During weekends, school and public holidays, the price is $10 for children aged one to four and $13 for kids aged five and above.

Babies under 12 months are free to enter, as are parents and guardians. I received a pass for $3 off our next visit, which is a discount for the off-peak winter season.
