KidZania is a safe and interactive, award-winning edutainment centre where children can lead independent lives and get to understand the world of grown-ups better, by being grown-ups themselves.
There are over 80 different roles to choose from including that of surgeons, firefighters, chefs, engineers, models, actors, artists, radio hosts, photographers, television hosts, jewelry designers and mechanics among others, making each visit to KidZania a new and exciting experience for children.
KidZania provides children and their parents a safe, unique and very realistic educational environment that allows kids between the ages of four to sixteen to do what comes naturally to them; role-playing by mimicking activities done by adults in real life.
As in the real world, children perform “jobs” and are either paid for their work (as a fireman, doctor, police officer, journalist, beautician, etc.) or pay to shop or to be entertained. The indoor edutainment centre is a city built to scale for children, complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, and recognizable destinations in the form of “establishments” sponsored and branded by leading multi-national and local brands.
KidZania also provides a separate area for toddlers to play in a safe and engaging environment.
Personal experience is a powerful learning tool. By blending reality with entertainment, KidZania provides an authentic and powerful developmental experience, preparing kids to understand and manage their world philosophy. Activities are completely hands-on so that kids acquire real-life skills, learn about working and having a career and are introduced to the fundamentals of financial literacy and how society functions. While children are having fun at KidZania, they are also learning socialization skills, mutual co-operation, teamwork, self-esteem and respect. Their creativity shines, they learn independence, develop decision-making skills and participate with their community – all skills that they will need to succeed as adults.
The KidZania journey begins by “checking-in” at KidZania International Airport and receiving a Boarding Pass, a city map and a cheque for 50 KidZos, the official currency of KidZania.
First point of call after entering the city is to encash the cheque at the bank. Kids then have the freedom to walk around the city, exploring the various establishments and selecting any job they like from over 80 role-plays. Once they have chosen their preferred profession, our “Zupervisors” then instruct the children in their specific task, don the uniform and are guided to completing that job, after which they are paid their “salary”.
All activity establishments in KidZania are the domain of the children. Parents can accompany their children and watch their activities from outside the establishments only. Parents can also relax at KidZania’s Parent’s Lounge, with a TV room, F&B and complimentary internet facilities.
Parents also have the option of “checking-in” their children and leaving them in KidZania, as long as they are above 120cms in height. With an RFID bracelet system in place, parents are assured a safe and secure environment for their children.
Adults must be accompanied by a child to enter KidZania. Prices are subject to change.
