May 27th, 2019

Happy Children’s Day!

How are you celebrating this day with your child(ren) today? How about exploring some of the kiddies fun spots around Lagos? Yes! There are a whole lot of places in Lagos (both Island and Mainland) to let your kids amazing time. Rain, intense sunshine, heat should not stop you from having fun with your family, especially with the kids. While there are indoor play centers, there are also outdoor play centers. So you can visit whichever you love most or the weather permits. But either ways, they are always fun!

I remember that a few years ago, there were just a few places to take the kids to for fun. But recently there has been quite a lot of places to explore in the city. I am so certain that my kids can go out 52 weekends in a year to explore the many places around without repeating many of these spots. That shows how numerous the fun spots in Lagos are.

If you have no idea where to take your kids to for fun, today or every other weekend, we have compiled the top 5 places to check out.

It is the first Trampoline Park in West Africa where both kids and adults can enjoy quality sporting activities. Since it was launched, it has become a hot spot for fun (while keeping fit at the same time…fun + fitness). It is no doubt a cool place to take you kids to.

There you have our top 5 fun spots for kids. But how about the older kids? Are they left behind in the fun activities? No, they are not! While the spots mentioned above are friendly for younger kids (although older kids are welcomed), these few spots are good for the older kids and adult. Many times you see adults (youths and young parents) at these places also catching fun and enjoying their best lives.


Rufus and Bee is one of the new game arcades in the city of Lagos. It is a fun-filled game center for both young and old. We visited shortly after it was launched and it just felt like one of those arcades in the US and we enjoyed it. Till now, it is one of the places people still enjoy visiting in Lagos. We wrote an article about the arcade center sometime last year. You can check it here.
