How does it work?

Essence Work, earn, play!

At KidZania your kids will be able to get fun and realistic insight into the adult world by taking part in a number of ‘jobs’ or leisure activities.

 

When you arrive at KidZania, you will find yourself at our Airport check-in area.  When you check in, you and your kids will each receive a security bracelet with GPS tracking device. This will be active for your 4-hour time slot, and will deactivate when your time slot is up, which means it is time to head to the Immigration Office to be checked out. Please see our Safety and Security page for further information. 

 

Kids also get 50 complimentary kidZos and a map of the City. If your kids are aged 8 or above, you can check them in and pick them up at the end of their time slot. Please note that they must be fetched by the adult who checked them in before they can be checked out. Find out more about KidZos, the currency of KidZania.

 

Once inside, all kids over 4 years old can independently explore the city and take part in the activities they choose.  There are over 60 interactive activities to choose from, various sectors in the City which include:

  • Automotive
  • Arts & Culture
  • Education
  • Health and healthcare
  • Media
  • Private Sector Services
  • Public Sector Services
  • Residential
  • Restaurants
  • Retail
  • Sports
  • Transportation

 

To exercise independence for all the kids visiting KidZania, many of the activities are kids-only zones. Here, adults can enjoy passive participation, watching their little one be empowered to make their own choices. We have other establishments that offer more active parent involvement, creating the ideal balance between independent play and quality family time. Have a look at what the grown-ups can do!

 

Activity durations range between 5 minutes and 50 minutes.  An average of 6 activities can be completed during your 4-hour visit depending on the activities you choose from the various sectors. Have a look at our Activities here.
