Maybe the biggest indoor playground in the world
First hint of the enormous indoor playcentre

What's the shortest time possible to order, eat and then run to the playground? I'd say about 15 minutes. It seemed like no sooner had we ordered than the meals were served. The glass window into the playcentre, named Kid's World for obvious reasons, was a fabulous motivator to eat fast. I need one of those at home!

Part of the playcentre- lots of fun

We were told Zagames had the biggest indoor playcentre ever but we had to see it for ourselves. It includes large climbing apparatus and multiple tunnels, hopscotch and other play equipment for school age children. The room with video games was surprisingly quiet. I guess the novelty of the play equipment was too great. There is also a large toddler centre so all aged children are catered for.

Electronic games room

For (much) older kids the modern, refurbished restaurant features multiple flat screen TVs. TAB, lounge and bottle shop.

Light meal? There's three aranchini balls under that pile of salad

The menu is extensive, including pizza, seafood, pasta, risotto, steak and chicken dishes. Large main meals are from $23. We ordered light meals that were big enough for two ladies.
Kid's meals are only $5 everyday. If you want to upgrade for an extra $4 you can get a free soft drink and dessert. Seniors meals are only $9.90 or for $10 you can have two coffees and cake.

Bookings are advised. I didn't expect the restaurant to be this busy on a Wednesday night but luckily for us they had a cancellation. Find your closest Zagames by clicking here.

If you are tempted by the idea that the kids will be seen (briefly) and then not heard from all night… this is the place for your next meal.

Wish I had room for the raspberry tart

Zagames is right across the road from Edwardes Park Lake, so you can walk off the meal if you have to. Alternatively, you could climb through all the tunnels chasing and trying to catch the children who don't want to leave. That should equate to the kilojoules consumed.
