“Cartoon - Children's Play Area”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Only reviewing this place. The mall itself is fine.

The play area is on the 2nd floor, next to fatburger in the new extension.

The play place itself is quite nice.
Has a split toddlers and older children areas.
It's all soft and padded.
The enclosure is quite high (but not the best! As I'll explain in a bit).

I would never leave my child there under the supervision of the staff.
The same women is always working.
Chewing gum in the mouth, blowing bubbles whilst playing games constantly on her phone!
Every time I have been there she does the same. She never ever looks over at the children who have been left there.

I was there today and a boy around 5 climbed up and over the enclosure. The maid wasn't really paying attention until I shouted. She shouted first as he run out of sight. Then decided to chase him.
Only when the maid was trying to open the gate to go after him, did the staff women even notice what had happened.
Her reaction was priceless!
If it was me... I'd be like 'oops! There's my job gone!' But no, she laughed and watched the maid chase the boy.
Apart from the staff, the play place is good.

“Centrally located shopping & entertainment”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Although it cannot be compared to Dubai & Abu Dhabi's malls, this is a great mall for a small town like Al Ain. , It has variety of shops boutiques & restaurants, a supermarket, ice skating rink and cinemas. For some reason, few places have uneven pathways with inclines that go up and down. I don't know what the designers were thinking. For someone who is recovering from a past foot injury, I did not find that comfortable.

When you visit Dubai and Abu Dhabi ,you have to go shopping. After a while it becomes tedious . Like England they have the same shops but at the higher end. If you want to spend an hour browsing it is ok but do not come late afternoon or evening as it becomes crowded. The shops stay open really lante.
