    Playtown - a few questions!

    To all who've been to Playtown in Kennedy Town:

    Thinking of taking our 3 year old and want to know for this age group -
    Is it really crowded on Sundays? As in, so crowded that it would be better to go during the week?

    Can different adults go with the child at different times - can I take my little one in the morning and then can he go back with hubby on the same ticket in the afternoon or would hubby have to buy a separate ticket? I understand they charge $100 for the child and one accompanying adult, but is it ok if a different adult goes in the afternoon?

    Thanks!!

    We went the first time on the 4th day of CNY (so the kids were still off of school). There were probably 150 kids there, but it never felt really crowded. We went again last Friday and it was great as there was almost no one there and my kids pretty much had free reign.

    I don't think that you can "switch" adults as when you pay, they give you a hospital bracelet to identify which child came with which adult. They do this for safety reasons. As a matter of fact, when my helper tried to leave with my son (I had already gone through the gate with my daughter) they stopped her to make sure she had the right child. I dont' really mind and neither of us was offended as it seems to be a good policy to ensure that no one leaves with a child that is not theirs.

    We went in the morning last weekend, Sunday I think, and it was very quiet compared to the weekdays. It started to get busier in the afternoon, but by then my 3 year old was exhausted so no need to come back!
    It was great but I wish it had a cafe for the parents like the ones in Australia!:yeah2

    you'll have a great time, snagito!

    and like neha says, we switched adult tags the other day, it wasn't a problem.

    they also have a frequent visitor card, which is appropriate for my family!
