Visited with the grandkids. The website said this opens at 10am. At 11am we were told that it opens at 2pm !!!! The reason given was that school kids come during school hours.Had to hang around as the grandkids were very keen. Went to the food court to have lunch. Run down. Average food. The unkindest cut was the air conditioning....almost non existant in the sweltering heat of Colombo. The whole place needs a revamp.The bowling was good. The cars did not start even at 3pm...

Supposed to be a mini amusement park with a few childrens rides, gaming arcade, bowling alley, movie theaters, food court.

All i can say its, sub standard, very poorly maintained. The prices are extremely high compared to what you get.

Still people flock there because there is no other alternative. So unless you have absolutely nothing to do, dont waste your time there.

I'm a regular at this place since 2000s where it had some good food outlets. But recently, I've noticed the food outlets that are there are not even up to the minimal standards.

Half the machines don’t work properly. Sometimes pins come out, sometimes half of them come out. It randomly counts the wrong amount of pins. Cool enviorment until you realize that you could guess your score better than the machine can actully count them.

Excel world used to be the place, people used to hang out when there were no places to hangout like, renovated Arcade independence square, Viharamahadevi park, Diyatha uyana. With time Excel did not improve its standards so that it can compete with the rest.

Now Excel is more like a place to do bowling and to have mini treats in the cafeteria. There's not much of food stalls like Crescat but it is ok. Bowling is the only crowded place in Excel in which some activity happening. Their cinema is OK. They have a big car park so parking is not an issue here.

There is a go karting compound but the track length is quite short. There is a futsal arena as well. There is a reception hall at Excel world which I am not quite sure how the condition is.

Excel used to organize snow world (a dome which is decorated with artificial snow and all) during the Christmas season. This was quite awesome.

This is a small amusement park for kids close to the centre of Colombo City.

It is NOTHING like Disneyworld or any other amusement park in developed countries, but for Sri Lanka, being a developing country, it is really a remarkable place for the following reasons.

The Bowling Alley is state of the art, clean, airconditioned, and very well run, so basically lots of fun for kids and adults.

The rides are limited, and mostly for really young kids, perhaps 3-8 years old, BUT there are plenty of other things for older kids to do, like Video Games, even a small Theatre or two, one with Motion Type of 3D Sensations, etc.

The Food Court is acceptable, with not a bad quality of food, but a lack of customers makes for a somewhat lonely dining experience here.

And now the HIGHLIGHT, this Children's Amusement Park has a Bar & Restaurant right in the middle of it, so if you can talk your spouse into spending some "quality" time with the kids, you could nurse a small drink in the heart of Colombo, thinking about what a wonderful vacation you are having!

Oh, and did I mention that EVERYTHING is extremely cheap here? The rides will cost you a maximum of a few dollars, same with bowling and other activities, and the drinks and food are FAR cheaper than other places, certainly much cheaper than your hotel!

Worth a visit, if you have kids, I think.

The day time activities are limited to the gaming / theater / bowling etc,.. for food not much items to select, the kids park says its open from 11am but it was open no staff available so better visit in the night. not much to do with a small kid in the day time.

We went on balling and had lunch there. Awesome experience. Games ranging from pool to many others are there. A balling session would cost Rs.350/- per person and you can have competitions among the groups who are visiting.The're a range of stalls for us to choose food from. The place is clean and maintained well. The staff is also friendly.

The shoes are fine but remember to bring your own socks and lane 10 was not workerly properly so sometimes we did not even get to complete our bowl because of the problems with lane 10. One of the workers did try to help out but this lane needs to be worked on.

With very little to do in Colombo for kids, we decided to give Excel World another go. It was a thoroughly depressing experience.

First, there's the bowling alley with it's warped lanes that rarely put all 10 pins back in place.

Then there's the very sad games arcade, most of the games were broken and the ones that did work were old and were clearly all cheap second hand imports from Japan/China. You have to guess what you are clicking unless you read Japanese.

The fairground might be OK for very little kids, but frankly it feels like a death trap. We waited patiently for the 4pm opening time, finally at 4.25pm someone shuffled into the ticket box, completely ignored us for five minutes and then told us it would be another a 15 minutes before he was ready.

The surrounding are horrible, even by Colombo standards. It's run down and could be so much better.
