Funarium is advertised as the "largest indoor play and family entertainment area" in Bangkok.
It is similar to the children's play areas seen in large shopping malls and at Big C and Tesco, except that it is both physically larger than these facilities and has a greater variety of equipment than they do.
The equipment, imported from the United Kingdom, is designed for use by children from age 0 to 13, and has been especially engineered to ensure safety and hygiene.
Funarium also maintains a café so that parents can enjoy themselves while the children play. The café provides parents with newspapers and magazines.
There is a "rules of play" list which outlines some rules for those that go to Funarium. Among these rules are that those over the age of 13 must be accompanied by a child ten years of age or younger, parents or adults must remain in the building while the children play, those in the facility can't wear shoes – but must wear socks, and that outside food or drink can't be brought into Funarium.
There are 16 rules of play in all and one of the rules basically says that Funarium is not responsible for accidents that might happen to children while playing, and another that Funarium assumes no responsibility for supervising the children playing.
