On the top floor of Astana Mall, there is a small indoor play area that right next to a set of windows. This is wonderful news as many play areas are enclosed and dark and loud. This one instead while much smaller than Babyland for instance, is an open air area (directly opposite the elevators on the far side).
Recommended age range: up to 6 years (although the older kids may get bored quickly)
Prices: 30 min for 500kzt; 60 min for 800kzt
Things to know: There is someone who works there who helps manage the children and organization of the space. There are couches for adults to sit inside the play area. You remove your shoes in entering the space, but either wearing socks or barefoot appeared acceptable.
