First established in Mexico City in 1999, this award-winning theme park has since been established in eight cities worldwide including Monterrey, Tokyo, Dubai and Seoul.
Malaysia is its latest home, a place where place where children can lead independent lives and understand the world of grown-ups better, by being grown-ups themselves.
Most parents would agree that kids simply enjoy imitating adults. KidZania is the answer to satisfy their curiosity of the adult’s world and their desire to be an adult through fun role-playing activities. Targeted at those aged 4 to 14, it is truly a nation for kids.
There are 60 “establishments” in KidZania offering 90 authentic role-playing activities. Kids can play and experience the jobs that their parents are doing – from surgeon and pilot to fashion model and hair stylist.
Toddlers too are not left out. There’s an exclusive section to cater to them called ‘Urbano’s House’. Here, those aged 3 and below can take part in story-telling and puppet shows, make their favourite meals, jump around on an inflatable bed, enjoy games, colouring books, puzzles and many more.
Whether children would eventually find KidZania interesting or enriching, I’ll leave it to them to judge. After all, the city is created for them.
Since Kidzania is located at the Curve NX, Mutiara Damansara take a taxi to this destination. The Curve is located outside of Kuala Lumpur city center; within Petaling Jaya.
There are RapidKL busses that depart from KL Sentral to The Curve (and to nearby mall 1 Utama). You can also take the train to LRT station Kelana Jaya. From the LRT station, you can either take the bus or taxi.
