Located inside the largest Dubai Mall and spread over 7,000 sq meters, Kidzania offers real-world activities in a city built exclusively for the little ones. With more than 80 choices, your child can engage in different roles like a doctor, pilot, firefighter, police officer, and many more. Read the article below and find out what this place has for you.
How does it work?
The adventure into Kidzania begins as the doors to the imaginary world open for the kids. On your arrival, parents and their kids are electronically tagged with RFID security bracelets, and kids will receive boarding passes at the airport and 50 Kidzos(Kidzania currency). Children will then have to cash in the money in a bank account and they will receive a debit card. They will pick a profession from various roles and accomplish the tasks assigned to them.
Under the guidance of “supervisors,” kids can learn, play and work in a safe town. Children will then have to do the jobs assigned under a particular profession and earn wages for the jobs they perform. The more you work, the more Kidzos you will earn. The money earned can be spent on leisure activities like shopping, spa, or entertainment. Thus, Kidzania offers an opportunity for kids to live like an adult in a safe and playful environment.
