Review: Funky Monkeys Indoor Play Area

Share the knowledge

Play is the work of the child. And what’s better than a dedicated play area that allows the child to jump, crawl, climb, hop and do all that he wants while ensuring the highest standards of safety and cleanliness. We recently visited one such center- Funky Monkeys Indoor Play Area where kids had a time of their life. They enjoyed to the extent that they didn’t want to return from this place.

Entry Charges


Funky Monkeys Andheri center has different charges for weekdays and weekends. A 90 minute fun session would cost around Rs. 460 on a weekday and Rs. 560 on a weekend with Rs 100 more for each additional hour. The cost includes the entry ticket for one kid and two accompanying adults. They have different rate cards for various centers in different cities.

Our Experience
We visited the Funky Monkeys Andheri Center and had a memorable experience. This was the first time my kids visited an indoor play area and they enjoyed thoroughly. It took them initial five minutes to settle at the place but once settled, their fun had no limit.

They tried every activity they could. From slides to trampoline to crawling into the tunnels-they did it all. But they enjoyed the most at the ball pit. The bright red and yellow coloured balls were too attractive for them to leave.

They play area has multiple play stations placed at strategic locations. Be it rotating the wheels or adding the numbers- there is a lot for children to both learn and enjoy.

Both A n A( Aarav and Aarohi) specifically loved the musical activity station and played a lot with the musical bells.

The entire play zone is well padded ensuring complete safety for the kids. There was a birthday party organized when we visited the center, so we could get the glimpse of the lovely birthday decorations as well. The balloons that A n A picked from the decorations kept them busy throughout their ride back home.

After enormous fun that lasted for a good two hours, A n A enjoyed their favourite potato smileys and french fries at the cafeteria. It was good to see that the center allows a child-friendly menu and a high-chair facility.

The Highs
Few things really impressed us and  deserve a special mention –
1. Their staff is super friendly and courteous and attended well to our various queries.

2. Like any other play area, socks is a must to enter the play zone. We unfortunately forgot to carry our pair. We were provided a fresh and new packet of socks at the center itself.

3. Play supervisors are always on their toes, ensuring smooth play. They usually give personal attention to younger kids.

Both A n A were not left alone for a single second. They, in fact, made good friends with the staff members.

4. Parents are allowed to enter the play area. So we could accompany the kids in all the sections they went.

I couldn’t resist myself from stepping onto the huge slides with them. It was a great bonding time for us as a family.

5. They have a cafeteria overlooking the play area. So in between we could sit for a while and sip some coffee while watching the kids enjoying free play.

6. Their bathroom is kid friendly. So we had a hassle free diaper changing time.

The Lows
There is nothing disappointing about Funky Monkeys indoor play area except the fact that it has only two branches in Mumbai and so we had to commute far to explore this place. We wish more centers of this fun place open soon across the city.

We had a great evening at Funky Monkeys. It was lovely to see the little explorers enjoying in a space that allows them safe, free and unstructured play. We are surely going to visit this place again soon.

    This is a review on Funky Monkey Chennai Location
    A place meant for kids should be filled with warmth and positive energy . But that cannot be said about Funkey Monkey. It has a toxic environment where staff are very very ill behaved. I have had this experience each time I have visited. What prompted me to write this review is what happened this time around is unforgivable. And what makes it worse is the attitude of management towards it. Here is what happened. A north eastern lady called Hannah- not sure whether it is her true name, disallowed my 2 year old son from taking a tissue in his pocket. He had runny nose and he usually keeps a wipe handy so that he can clean it . I let it be. Sometime later kids and we were playing in the area where we shoot balls, there was a big lump of cobwebs or god knows what. But something very yucky. I asked this lady to clean it and this is exactly what she says – ” Mind you own business”. I was shocked. I said this is my business and she kept shouting. At this point I do not remember what she said. I immediately walked up to the front desk and spoke to the lady there. She accompanied me to the staff who was still inside the playarea. Well, it is very unfortunate that the staff contuined and yelling like a maniac. I mentioned that has happened every time i come.. Rude Staff . And she says this “Shame on you ! Shame on you ! Shame on you !” Yes thrice.

    I would not talk to any fellow human being this way. And here i am customer. I was in no way properly apologized. Infact i even ended up paying the amount that i was expected to pay. Least I would have expected is –

    1) An apology call from their end towards me reassuring this will not happen
    2) Waiving off the charges

    My husband was not with me. When he heard of this he went back to talk to the staff but she refused to meet. Another very unprofessional aspect that i cannot miss out. After this incident , a parent comes by and says
    “The staff is crying . Not sure what happened . She is coming and complaining about you”

    Really? Parents are being involved too. Dont they know meaning of customer is king .. we just ask for a little decency here.
