Under The Sea is another excellent fun hub for toddlers and preschoolers. It is a perfect spot for theme parties, playdates, and school trips. Located on the fourth floor of Village Market’s new wing, along Limuru Road, Under the Sea, is an exciting, engaging, fun place to grow your child.

Under the Sea appeals to children aged 12 years and below. The colorful marine-themed fun haven has a Marine Mountain as the main play area, a kid’s craft workshop, interactive games, and the Love the Ocean program, which is an environmental education program. 

Under the Sea opens Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm. Their game packages are limited to two hours of uninterrupted fun. The best part about Under the Sea is that adults enter for free, but children are limited to two accompanying adults. Any extra adult must pay 200 for the two hours the family will space at the play area. 


Playland is third on my list of the top 4 fun places worth visiting this holiday season. Playland is a family amusement park featuring exciting facilities, such as a trampoline park, soft play area, bowling, pool tables, virtual reality, and ropes obstacles. 

Since Playland opened its doors in 2019, it has become a family favorite play park offering unmatched entertainment for all ages. Playland is located at NextGen Mall along Mombasa Road. Playland opens Monday to Sunday from 10 am to 8 pm.


Last but definitely not least is Funcity. Funcity is a relaxation center where your family gets to enjoy various fun activities, including large swings and a swimming pool, among other children’s games. 

Other facilities you can enjoy at Funcity include a choma ranch, children’s playhouse, 7D theater, swinging boat, school packages, lunar park, Utopia lounge, and conferencing facilities. 

Funcity is located along the Eastern Bypass in Utawala, opposite Bakri Petrol station. The facility was launched in 2017, and since then, it prides itself on its unique attraction of outstanding recreation activities, great teams, trendy gaming machines, and reasonable pricing. 

There you have it! You can visit Four amazing fun places with your little kings and queens for a day filled with laughter and good cheer. The best part is that these places are strategically located, so you don’t have to worry about commuting. 

But as I always advise, always do your due diligence before settling. Another better part is that these facilities are generous with information on their website, so all necessary information is at your disposal.
