Located at Annex@Furama, Waka Waka is a massive Safari-themed indoor playground located next to and managed by Furama Hotel. It consist of a main Safari Play area, an Adventure Cove, a Toddlers Area and a cafe for parents to rest their legs! It has consistently rank as one of our favourite themed- indoor playground and we like to share why!
We first visited the playground in 2017 when it opened and made subsequent visits over the years, including a huge party in 2019 with over 500 families (video below)! Within the article, you may find a mixture of images from our various visits.
Play Areas In Waka Waka
The playground is divided into 4 main areas. The Toddler Play, Safari Play, Adventure Cove and Cafe.
The Toddler Play area is meant for younger kids with a giant bouncy inflatable, and other toys to engage the little ones. While it is thoughtful to have a separate area for young kids, it is not cordoned off and parents are encouraged to look after their little ones as older kids will still enter the play area too.
Main Play - Safari Zone
The main play area takes up most of the indoor playground. The first thing you will notice is the prominent Volcano and Rope area where kids will try to climb and conquer! Once at the top, the kids may slide down the metal slide... and try again! Kids will definitely love this challenge and we love to see parents giving their encouragement too!
The rest of the playground is like a maze! Trust me, I have lost a son in there (for a couple of mins)!
The 2-tier main structure consist of ropes and climbing structures, obstacles, balancing beams, a couple of slides and a hidden trampoline too! If you lose your kid, try searching at the trampoline. Imagine this as searching for Tarzan in the forest!

Adventure Cove - Rope Course
A high-element, confidence-building obstacle course for the kids! There is a separate charge where children can suit up in the safety harness and navigate through the rope and obstacle course. It may not look difficult, but it does require confidence and lots of courage too - parents are also welcome to join in too!
More details on pricing will be provided below.
The Lion's Den - Cafe & Resting Area
Tired? Hungry? or Thirsty? Head over to the cafe that is located within the playground where there are multiple food and drinks options - from snacks to full meals! Time to rest those tired feet, grab a drink and to take a break!
Free Wi-Fi is available here. For parents who need to work, you can setup your laptop, while the kids go crazy in the playground! No distractions, except the occasional "Mummy are your done yet" before running back to the play areas!
