Celebrate multi-talented dads this Father's Day at KidZania!
KidZania is Singapore’s premier edutainment destination where kids can experience all types of careers across a dozen industries, earn KidZania currency for their hard work and learn how to manage their money by saving up for big ticket items or even investing at the bank to earn interest.
With Father’s Day around the corner, you might be wondering just how you can spoil dad and have fun with the whole family on this very special day. Well, we have the perfect solution for you and it’s happening at the super-fun KidZania!
But before we tell you all about it, a bit about KidZania first.

Last week, theAsianparent visited KidZania and enjoyed a full tour of the kid-sized city. With it being nearly the end of the school year, you can imagine that the city was in full swing with kids running around everywhere dressed as firefighters, doctors, police officers and more.
The first thing we noticed, even before we entered KidZania, is the airplane that sticks out of the front of the building. We were impressed to learn that not only is it a real Boeing 737 fuselage, but that it was actually in service for nearly three decades!
The plane houses KidZania’s most popular activity where kids learn about becoming a pilot with the help of a flight simulator. To avoid kids standing around queueing, KidZania gives out time cards for this activity, but you need to get one early as the time slots for the entire day fill up quickly.
Some of the other popular activities at Kidzania can be found at the fire station where kids learn fire safety rules before rushing off to put out a fire at a local hotel, a radio station that lets kids try their hand at being a DJ and a pizza school where they can decorate their own pizzas!
Meanwhile, for kids under the age of four, there are the Kindergarten and Residence areas upstairs. Parents, don’t fret – you haven’t been forgotten either!
When you want to take a break from all the fun and re-charge for even more fun, just head to the Parent’s Lounge which is fully equipped with coffee and wifi. Furthermore, all facilities at KidZania are fully wheelchair accessible.
KidZania kicks off their Father’s Day programme next month. From June 1 – June 25, fathers can enjoy free entry to KidZania with the purchase of two walk-in children’s tickets.
Dads can show off their talents when they join their kids in Father-Child role play activities from June 9 – June 26, including tackling the high ropes challenge at the Mountaineering School, showing off their culinary skills while assembling Bento Sets or decorating cupcakes or learning some groovy dance moves and performing with their kids during the hourly City Clock performance.
