By now, most of our kids have been to KidZania Singapore and experienced the ultra-realistic role-play that the “city” has to offer. Putting out fires, delivering parcels or cash, editing newspapers, preparing food, pumping gas, or investigating crime scenes — KidZania Singapore uses real-world fun and learning to ready kids for a better world!
Whether you have visited just once or numerous times, you’ll notice that the offerings at KidZania Singapore are constantly being updated as our children’s interests diverge. My boys, Zayden (age 9) and Xavion (age 6) have been active KidZania Singapore citiZens since its opening, and the last two years have just flown by.
When KidZania Singapore first opened, my boys would always race to take on jobs as firefighters, pilots or police officers first. Over the course of our many visits, I have watched my boys’ curiosity evolve. With each visit, they have started asking more knowledgeable questions about the tasks at hand. I have noticed that they no longer jump for the usual jobs, but rather explore a variety of different roles that people play in society.
Over time, they have learned that many of these jobs are connected. For example, insurance is required before embarking on a “risky activity” such as mountaineering, while a university degree will earn you more kidZos. These are real life lessons that are hard to teach without first-hand experience.
As a parent, I have observed my boys achieve new milestones at every visit. From our very first visit, Xavion would check his height against the measurement board for the “wall climbing” activity.
Having not yet reached the height requirement, he would be turned away, much to his disappointment. But during our recent visit over the school holidays, Xavion made the height requirement with an extra centimetre to spare! He climbed the wall not once but four times just to prove that he could do it!
Xavion’s next goal is to join the Mountaineering School, which requires a 155 cm arm length. Big brother Zayden achieved this last year and has been actively climbing since.
For us parents, KidZania Singapore isn’t a bad place to hang out either. When we get tired of taking pictures for social media (yes, we all do it), we can chill out at the Parent’s Lounge or at the restaurants located around the City while our kids are busy earning kidZos.
We also have had a few opportunities to participate and work side-by-side with our kids in some fun role-playing activities during the special family nights. Just so you know, there are 16 role-play activities parents can do with their kids.
In addition to being a great edutainment activity for our kids, KidZania Singapore is also an awesome birthday party venue with numerous party theme possibilities!
Two years have passed, but the fun doesn’t stop there! KidZania Singapore continues to grow and evolve daily.
Starting this year, KidZania Singapore will be launching a legislative body of elected kids. These kids will come together regularly to share ideas, voice their opinions, and discuss important topics that concern citiZens and tourists of KidZania Singapore.
The Inauguration for the first ever KidZania Singapore CongreZZ will be held on 8th April 2018. So make sure you are at KidZania Singapore to support your fellow CongreZZ members!
Now, a birthday celebration just isn’t a celebration without some special festivities, and all of us are invited to join the fun! KidZania Singapore is having some Zuper special 2nd Birthday DOUBLE promotions in April to celebrate.

Super Note: Earning double kidZos may not seem like a big deal to us parents, but just ask your kids! When I told my boys about the “double kidZos” they got really excited. Xavion currently has 610 kidZos in his kidZo bank account and is trying to earn 850 kidZos to buy a pair of, in his words, “really awesome binoculars,” from the special KidZania “kids only” department store.
