Adventure Zone @ Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa

One of the friendly employees at Shangri-La, Amylia, welcoming us to Adventure Zone!  “Adventure Zone is an exciting family entertainment venue for all thrill seekers with a variety of modular play areas from over-under hurdles, tumble tower, and swing-over net to a climbing wall, soft play areas and daily Nintendo wii sports challenges.  The highlights are the three drop slides providing fun and adventure for all.  Go for the ultimate rush on the 6.5 metre demon drop slide – a must for all adrenalin lovers!”

Adventure Zone is inside Al Mazaar Souk at the Shangri-La.

This is the entrance where they will check to make sure that your kid is wearing a long-sleeve shirt and socks for safety reasons.  If not, you can buy an Adventure Zone shirt for 4 rials (they’re cute!) and socks for 1 rial.

Cute artwork on all the walls with an underwater theme.  This part of the wall looks like a mini wall-climbing area.

Our son loved the ball-pit!

They have this smaller slide if your kid is too scared to try the main drop slides.

This is the computer area which wasn’t being used at all during our visit.

There is plenty of space for parents to chill out while your kids run around (if they’re old enough to play without supervision).

I thought the signs with all the rules were quite funny!  Some are posted here for your entertainment.

I was surprised that my son really wanted to go down the main slide.  He actually cried and insisted to go down it before we left.  I wouldn’ve thought that he would be afraid of such a drop but it seems his old man hesitated more than he did, haha!

It’s nice to know that they are quite strict with the rules so don’t think of just dropping your kids off here like some kind of babysitting centre.

Shops are slowly starting to open up at Al Mazaar Souq at the Shangri-La.  It’s well worth a visit while taking the kids out for fun.  They also have “Game Z” which is a games centre where you can play darts, air hockey, snooker, billiards, table football and ice hockey.

Next to the Omani Heritage Village, the souk houses shops that present beachwear, accessories, Kashmir products and carpets.  Oman Arab Bank is in place to cater to your everyday needs.”

They also have mini golf (9 holes) in the same area.

Adventure Zone is open daily from 10am to 10pm.  It’s supposed to be a great place to celebrate your kid’s birthday.

Anyone taken their kids to the Adventure Zone? If so, what do you think of the place? Our son loved it and we plan on bringing him again soon.   Tel: 24776666

  1. Looks like you had a fun time at Adventure Zone. I’m planning an outing to Shangri-La sometime soon, but I will probably skip Adventure Zone since i don’t have a kid to take. I LOVE those signs. They are hilarious, especially the No Smoking and the NO FOOD OR DRINK one!

    • Hi Cathy,
      Yes, Adventure Zone was a lot of fun. Shangri-La is such a fantastic place. I’m sure you’ll have a great time. (#5 on your “2012 bucket list”, I see! 🙂 )Don’t miss the Lazy River! I look forward to seeing a write-up on your blog about Shangri-La after your outing.

      • I”m back now from Greece, so I’ll be visiting there soon!

        • Welcome back, Cathy! I saw on the latest post on your blog that you’re back. Looking forward to reading up on all your semesters here this fall. I wish you all the best with your classes this semester and pray that you get fantastic groups of students!
