KidZania, the world’s fastest growing family edutainment phenomenon opens its doors to the public on 12 April 2016 and will operate 7 days a week. Needless to say, we can't wait to hit this city of big dreams for little people!
What is KidZania?
KidZania combines role-play with real life, creating a city experience that's designed to educate and inspire kids; from arriving at the airport, to visiting a city centre to exploring the city streets. Just like in the real world, kids choose activities – such as being a pilot, police officer, doctor, journalist or a customer – and earn money, which they can then spend or save.
They operate just like a real city complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, and recognisable destinations in the form of “establishments” branded by leading international and local brands.
