iCity Shah Alam

After one visit, we are of the opinion that this much advertised fun place is not suitable for our family.

Simply because we have two young children and a few other incidental discoveries:

Not stroller friendly.

Not baby and children friendly. 


Lack of ramps. 

No baby change room.

No feeding room.

No children size toilet.

Now, this post has been in my draft folder for a few days and I have finally decided to share it in the hope that you will go prepared. No malice intended.

Activities and lights come on after our children's bed time - something to consider for our jetlag nights after balik kampung return trip from England.

Our mediocre fun was at The Trick Art Museum. It lasted us a quarter of an hour. Sigh. There is only so much to do and imagine there. 

Do not let the word museum trick you into thinking about those tres chic art museum you'd find in Europe. The one we went to is a row of shophouses converted into a fire trap with bad stairs, lack of fire escape signs and reeked of stale air.

The entire place seems to be left to the devices of unmotivated teenagers as managers/cashiers.

The Other Half was a little annoyed. The proximity card took RM7 off without the barrier opening during "attempted" exit. Paid another RM1 with parking card to exit at KFC. Trust me, we were just sad that it (the proximity card and barrier team) failed to serve the purpose it was designed for.

Parking lots were quite dodgy at the back lanes. We were quite shocked to see a hotel operating in the midst of it all. Pretty red light impression...but I pray I am wrong.

There is more construction near by, maybe this place will spruce up after the entire project is completed?

Have you visited this place too? Did you have fun? What did you do differently?

P/s: Blessing in disguise - Section 7 Shah Alam has lots of muslimah fashion shops! Too bad there is only street parking (hint double parking and getting trapped!).
