Pororo Lounge, Coex Seoul

This was my first visit to a kids indoor playground in Seoul. I decided on this one as I have been to Coex (a Seoul shopping centre) before thought this would be an easy one to hit off on the list. It’s very easy to get there. Just get off at Samseong station and head towards the exit for Coex shopping centre. Then once inside the shopping centre, you can ask info desk where “Pororo Lounge” is. It’s all indoors once you get to a subway so it may be a good activity to do during a rainy day. Also, you could do some shopping while bub is asleep or if hubby is willing to watch bub at the play centre while you go do a bit of shopping and for some “Me” time.

When I entered the kids cafe or play centre, I was blown away by how big it is and more importantly how clean it is! There was even a small corner section for 0-1 year olds when they are only crawling. The other play areas were for 1-5 year olds. There was also a small canteen where you can buy adult and kids food. I ordered a bulgogi risotto for little Z and he enjoyed it.

Cons

  • It is 12,000 won plus you have to pay 5,000 won for each parent. But I think it was totally worth it! Little Z has never been happier and never been to such a place before!
  • It’s a rectangular shape room so where you sit can’t really watch your kid from the one area. You will have to follow them around to keep a watchful eye.
