Winter season is upon us and, as the days get shorter and colder, taking the kids to play outside becomes less and less of an option. However, kids still have those impossible-to-keep-up energy levels in need to be spent! It’s time to take the kids to the best indoor activities in Macau to channel all that creative and dynamic pizzazz into a productive and fun day out to entertain them (and keep the adults sane!).

Whether you choose to take a walk in outer space, have a seat on the Science Express train, or test your endurance in the sports room, your family is guaranteed to have a fabulous time exploring and learning at the Macao Science Center. The Exhibition Center features 14 galleries of interactive excitement covering topics such as Robotics, Eco-Conservation, Food Science, Genetics, and Acoustics. If you need a quick break between exhibits, there are two restaurants and an indoor playground for the kiddos. The Macao Science Center also houses a planetarium, a convention center, and hosts special features and activities.
Future Bright Amusement Park
Future Bright Amusement Park definitely delight kids and adults alike! Aim for a strike at one of the 15 bowling lanes, rack up points on one of the many arcade games or show off your best ice skating skills around at the 11,000 square foot ice rink. Is there any more of a “Christmassy” family hangout than going out for ice skating? We don’t think so!
For the little ones head on up to the 2nd floor to the “Future Bright Children World,” where you will find games, activities, and small rides suitable for younger ages. If you need to refuel between activities, there is an onsite McDonald’s and a coffee shop. With so much fun in one arena, your family can spend the whole day in this world of amusement.
Flip Out Trampoline
Flip Out is a trampoline wonderland! If your kids are into bouncing off the floor (and walls), this is the place to be at. The whole arena is designed with a safe, padded environment and there is a specific area for younger kids. And do not feel shy if you feel like jumping around too–adults are welcome to experience the trampoline arena! On the contrary, if you don’t plan on using the facilities, you can visit FlipOut as an accompanying carer to your little one.
Flip Out features nine zones, such as Pinball Tramp, Waterfall, Battle Beam, and Adult Parkour, besides a refreshment shop and seating areas. Added bonus: you can order a pizza from Rossi Trattoria‘s Rossi Pizza and have it delivered to Flip Out Trampoline. This would make for the perfect family hangout!
Legend Heroes Park
With a variety of tech-based amusements such as virtual and augmented reality and motion tracking, Legend Heroes Park at Studio City Macau is the next generation playground! This park features more than 60 games spread out through four main areas: Prime, Arena, Play, and Style. Kids, teens, and adults can spend time playing their favorite super-hero, showing off their sporty skills, bowling and much more! There’s also a specific area with amusements suitable for the little ones.
Warner Bros. Fun Zone
Step into the world of well-loved characters at the Warner Bros. Fun Zone at Studio City Macau. The indoor haven is ideal for kids of all ages and features multifunctional areas that cater to creative and interactive activities. With a theme centered around the values of play, explore and celebrate, the entertainment hub is located on level 3 with 40,000 square feet of space for various things to do and experience.
Located all on the same floor, our favorite areas include the ACME Bounce-O-Matic that features an exciting series of short drops from dual jumping towers. This first test of courage will surely fire up the day for energetic little ones. Make your way to the DC Comics Super Hero Action Arena and explore the thrilling sets of the Justice League. Climb your way up and slide down navigating traps and ropes for a fun exercise. The Tom & Jerry Picnic Playground is ideal for toddlers, with an oversized banana slide and large cheese stacking blocks. It is open from Monday to Sunday at 10:00am to 7:00pm.
