Have you heard of Kidzania?* You soon will do! It's opening this summer in London and you can book tickets in advance now*. Kidzania is already a huge hit in many countries around the world, and we can safely say that there's nothing quite like it! It's an educational entertainment experience, where kids can enter the grown up world in their own child sized city and try their hands at being a firefighter, a pilot, a surgeon or whatver they want to be.
Opening June 25th 2015, KidZania is the UK’s first educational entertainment experience where children aged 4 - 14 can learn real-life skills in a child-size city built just for them! Kids can explore over 60 unique and exciting professions through real-life role play adventures in this fun and safe environment. The city streets are lined with real-life establishments - from the Aviation Academy to the Radio Station, Police Station or Hospital. Having welcomed over 38 million visitors worldwide, KidZania is a global phenomenon and one of the world’s fastest growing educational entertainment brands, with 18 locations across five continents. This is one place where no grown-ups are allowed (unless they’re accompanied by a child).
Kidzania London opens on 25th June, and then will be open daily (except Christmas Day) from 10am to 6pm. Tickets cost £28 for children aged 4 to 14, and accompanying adult tickets are priced from £16.50.
Can you think of a single place like this anywhere in the UK? It sounds like a fantastic experience for children where they can really let their imagination run wild, and also learn a bit more about the adult world in a safe educational environment. The video on the link above shows you loads more about exactly what to expect, so it's worth a quick look. I think the kids are going to love it, and it's going to be very busy, so you'd better book in advance if you can!
