About Us

The first indoor Play Centre of its kind in Windhoek. Play frames comply with European standards, manufactured and supplied by one of the largest global suppliers of indoor Play Centres in the world.

It complies with international European safety standards, currently situated in the Centre of town in one of the largest shopping malls in Namibia, Maerua Mall for perfect convenience.

Joyful Noise aims to provide a safe, clean, and stimulating environment for physically active children aged 13 and under to play in and explore.

The supervised, visually open play area ensures children's safety, while challenging them to reach, think, interact, explore, and have fun.

The entire Play Centre is approximately 1400m2 in size, boasting with a huge jungle play frame of over 400m2 for ages 5 to 16 years, a smaller jungle play area for babies and toddlers under the age of 5 years. A newly added Volcano structure with a climbing feature is one of the additions to our play area and we now have, four 5D themed party rooms, 2 family rooms which are also disable friendly and sanitary facilities for both boys and girls. We also have our very own café on site which serves light meals suitable for parents and children and a seating area which accommodate 120 persons at a time.

Another amazing new feature which we added to our facility, is our new Glow in the dark putt-putt. Boasting with 18 holes putt-putt with an Around the World theme, hand painted by specialist artists from oversea, this is a must see for young and old.

It is Joyful’s vision and mission to provide playtime to be as rewarding for the parents as it is for the children, as they spend time together.


History and where it started

Joyful Noise was founded by Edward and Genoveve Plaatje after they saw the need for a place in Windhoek where parents could do their shopping in peace whilst their children can play in a safe environment, especially in a mall environment. Having twin boys of their own, and experiencing a constant battle with their little ones whenever they visited the Malls of Windhoek and entertainment for little ones in the city, the couple saw the gap in the market. Parents will now be able to enjoy a safe environment where children can play and have fun whilst having a stress free shopping experience. With a coffee shop for the parents and a huge play area for the kids, Joyful Noise is the perfect location for families.

The name Joyful Noise came about as a place where children could be allowed to express themselves freely without parents having to worry about the noise! The play centre opened its doors in November 2015 at Maerua Mall. The play frame consists of a dedicated toddler area for the little ones as well as a larger area for children of all ages. Caretakers’ man the play area at all times to prevent bullying and injury as well as assisting parents, to give the parents some “time off”.

The large play area offers a series of colourful tubes, a 4 lane slide of 10 metres long, a spiral slide, a large ball pit, an air trampoline, dangling snakes, obstacle courses and ramps, stairs, climbing structures etc. A dedicated toddler area offers their own slide, giant lego blocks, a ball pit, several interactive games, soft toys and cushions for moms to relax on whilst keeping a close eye. To encourage active participation by parents, all play areas have a visually open design with comfortable rest areas in full view of the play area. The entrire play frames are jungle themed with different animals like elephants, zebras, giraffes displayed all over the play and seating area.. The 5D themed party rooms, provides a different feel and atmosphere which is unique to Joyful Noise only. The party rooms has been air brushed by artists from Poland and Sweden. The party room furniture has been imported from Italy. It’ll make any boy / girls dream birthday party one to remember.

Play frames were installed by a group of specialized and highly skilled play Installation Company, where safety and hygiene is their top priority. Once the installation was completed, a final check was done to ensure its safety thereof before handed over to Mrs Plaatje. These high safety standards are not compromised at all, and play frames even have extensive anti climbing netting to ensure that kids are safe at all times.
