Know KidZania's information

Ikon_concept ¿What is KidZania?

KidZania is an interactive city made for children 1-14 that combines inspiration, fun and learning through realistic role-play. Kids can independently explore a scaled city of over 4,000 square meters with more than 50 exciting careers that they can try.

 

Fueled by a child’s natural desire to create, explore and collaborate, KidZania is equal parts entertainment and learning, making it one of the most progressive family entertainment concepts in the world today.

 

Through ultrarealistic role-play, children learn about different careers, the inner-workings of a city and the concept of managing money. Each experience is designed to empower kids, giving them the confidence to be their best selves, and inspiration to be great global citizens.

Ikon_role-play Role Playing

Role-playing is an embedded behavior in children. They perform it naturally without previous learning or adult explanations. Unlike other activities that include directions, such as sports or video games, children only need to watch an adult doing something before beginning to imitate them.

 

Role-playing is not only a significant part of the KidZania essence, but an aspiration to take it to its maximum expression. This unique way of viewing role-play inspires us to build entire cities with buildings, city blocks, plazas and streets for children to play at being adults, with most of the different professions and trades available in a real one.
