In case you haven’t heard of KidZania, it is an indoor family edutainment centre which offers an interactive learning and entertainment experience for kids in a kid-sized city, through over 80 role-play activities.
Based on all the info we have so far, we’ve identified 10 amazing things you should know about KidZania Singapore before it opens!
1. Safety first
Everyone who enters the park will be tagged with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) security bracelet and a child is only allowed to leave the park with an adult whose bracelet matches that of the child’s. At KidZania, safety is priority amidst the fun times!
2. Not your average KidZania
There are 22 other KidZanias around the world, but none as unique as the first one to be situated on an island resort. Located at Palawan Beach, Sentosa, KidZania Singapore distinguishes itself by offering kids an unparalleled edutainment experience against the backdrop of a serene tropical beach.
Furthermore, this will be the brand’s first stand-alone KidZania building, part of the new Palawan Kidz City. The building even boasts a full-wing fuselage of a Boeing 737!
3. A language of their own
To unite the kids of the world, KidZanians around the world share a common language. Learn about the language and speak it with your kids!
‘Kai’ means ‘Hi’, ‘Kal’ means ‘Pal’; so ‘Kai my Kal’ means ‘Hi, my Pal!’ Say ‘Zaz’ for ‘Wow’ and we’ll Z-U soon at KidZania!
4. Currency is king
As with cities of the world, KidZania even has a currency of its own called ‘kidZos’! Along with taking on jobs, kids get to earn and save kidZos and use them to purchase goods and services, even have a choice to generate interest on their kidZos by saving it with the bank. Best of all, kidZos can be used in any KidZania city around the world!
5. A real city
Like any other city, KidZania Singapore employs town planners! Mirroring realistic urban planning techniques, the expansive indoor edutainment complex is comprised of various districts for the establishments. Districts include:
- Culture and Entertainment
- Public Services
- Private Services
- Restaurants – F&B establishments will be located throughout the city.
6. A nation with its own national monuments
To promote a sense of community and belonging, KidZania also has national monuments to showcase the common ideals and aspirations of KidZanians. Remember to bring your kids to see these symbols:
- The Monumental Flag
- Independence Fountain
- Eternal Spirit
7. Living out aspirations through realism
Kids can be whoever they want to be at KidZania Singapore. Be a Pilot, a Surgeon, an Actor, a Firefighter or a Chef, and live out their aspirations through the many role-play professions available in the City. Designed to make kids think about things on a much bigger scale, the role-play activities have been specially curated and authenticated by real-world brands to ensure realism in every learning opportunity.
8. Celebrate uniquely Singaporean culture
Unique to KidZania Singapore is the presence of familiar local brands to give guests a KidZanian experience that is unique to Singapore’s heritage and culture. This includes The Intan, which is also the first Peranakan Museum to be featured in any KidZania city, and other brands such as Camp Challenge, Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Kiss92, The Soup Spoon, Lim Chee Guan and more.
9. Reimagine retail therapy
Remember what we said about kidZos? Kids can choose to spend the kidZos which they have earned at the Shopping Alley and Department Store. It is the freedom of choice and decision-making that KidZania is known to empower kids with, including lessons on the value of money.
