Kidzania- Kids own city!!

K idza­nia, when I heard abut it some 2 years back was real­ly curi­ous and excit­ed to take my daugh­ter there and let her enjoy the amaz­ing world of kids. Yes, you read it the right amaz­ing world of kids.

Due to my lit­tle son’s pre­ma­ture deliv­ery, we total­ly for­got that we made a promise to our lit­tle princess to take her there. On 9th April 2017, when my son turned 2 we planned to sur­prise “Ira” our daugh­ter to take her to her own world of fun and it’s going to be a return gift of birth­day from my son “Viraj” to her “Ira didi” 

Why Kidzania?

Being a moth­er of two munchkins, I under­stand it’s how dif­fi­cult to keep your kids engaged indoor in this humid and hot sum­mer. It’s not the sto­ry of the sum­mer sea­son but also every sea­son when kids are at home they need to be engaged and when you stay in a Nuclear fam­i­ly it’s a chal­leng­ing job. What we as a par­ent do actu­al­ly to keep them engage indoor is either go and watch car­toon, chot­ta bheem or if not any­thing else I will not lie, as seen 95% of par­ents giv­ing their kids mobiles to play games and nowa­days moth­ers mobile is full with kids apps to keep them busy and I’m one of them. Well, yes apart from this if our con­scious rais­es voice we scold them to do some­thing cre­ative and go col­or­ing or draw­ing. (Do let me know in com­ment ses­sion how u keep ur kids busy indoor… true answer !!)  

So, now Kidza­nia is one that solu­tion in today’s sce­nar­io where your child can be in his/her world. With the name when I heard first-time “Kidza­nia indoor the­me park” I thought it would be just like any oth­er adven­ture park with indoor rides and some games. But, my vis­it proved me entire­ly wrong and what I got to know this is one place with the great con­cept of ” REAL LIFE ROLE PLAY  and it’s built like a big city in itself with paved roads, bat­tery oper­at­ed cars, build­ings, a func­tion­ing econ­o­my & its own cur­ren­cy. This place will teach your child social val­ues, cre­ativ­i­ty, prob­lem-solv­ing and much more with val­ue to respect every lit­tle work and they will learn to respect every sin­gle pro­fes­sion and learn that no job is small. 

Wiggling in Kidzania:

When we reached, so impressed to see that here we don’t have to buy tick­ets and enter, rather it’s called asKidza­nia Inter­na­tion­al Air­port “ we have to check in and then board­ing pass will be issued to go onboard to the city of Kidza­nia.

                 Wait­ing for board­ing pass

Once you get the board­ing pass 

Air­port exec­u­tives tie a gives you their city called Kidza­nia cur­ren­cy of Rs. 50/- in form of cheque.

 

Once u get your board­ing pass and cheque the exec­u­tives tied a RFID bracelets on your wrist by which kids can scan and do unlim­it­ed ser­vices and if they want to enjoy any ser­vices they just have to pay the Kid­zo to avail those ser­vices.

Bracelets are unique secu­ri­ty bracelet given to both par­ents and kids for the dura­tion of the vis­it which can be removed only by Kidza­nia staff when the vis­i­tor has to leave, hence secure the safe­ty of the kids inside the amuse­ment park.

As the kid­do enters for any activ­i­ty his/her RFID bracelet is scanned, to keep track of the activ­i­ty the kid is in dur­ing that time, just in case a par­ent has to search their kid, the sen­sor guides the par­ent to that par­tic­u­lar activ­i­ty.

Now it’s time to go and wig­gle inside the city of Kidza­nia. 

Kidzania city clicks:

My daugh­ter got all excit­ed and the first thing she did rush to Yes Bank and encashed her cheque in Kid­zo and she is all set to explore, avail ser­vices and time to earn some mon­ey. 

Wiggling fun begins: 

K.Z.P.D (Kidzania police department)

Ira in police uni­form got train­ing from the offi­cer and the motive of the depart­ment is to ensure that there is no rule break and no crime in the city. This activ­i­ty is for 20 min where you have to roam around city and con­trol that no rule to be bro­ken by any cit­i­zen of the city. 

Kid can play 2 roles 

  • Foren­sic Inves­ti­ga­tor
  • Police Offi­cer 

Ira has cho­sen to be a police offi­cer and earned 10 Kid­zos for com­plet­ing her task, dura­tion of task is 20 min­utes. 

Bollywood Actors Academy

Being in Mum­bai and you don’t have a lit­tle zeal of act­ing quite not pos­si­ble so this was next stop for Ira. 

She got trained by one direc­tor there in the acad­e­my and then had her per­for­mance in the Kidza­nia The­atre. 

Culinary School:

This is yet anoth­er most fav thing Ira loves the most to get trained as a chef and when it’s Bajaj Nutel­la chef then why not? Here, Ira had to spend 12 Kid­zos and get trained. 

Dura­tion for the activ­i­ty: 20 Min­utes. 

Aviation Academy:

Lat­est Aim of Ira is to be a pilot and in this acad­e­my, kids can choose their role play either be Pilot, Co- pilot or Cab­in Crew. Being a Cab­in Crew kids can earn 8 Kid­zos but as a pilot and co-pilot, they have to spend 12 kid­zos. 

It gives a  unique oppor­tu­ni­ty to under­stand first-hand the com­pli­cat­ed sequence of tasks a pilot com­pletes before, dur­ing and after each flight. Activ­i­ty Duration:15 Min­utes. 

Fire Department:

My lit­tle boy also dressed up like fire­fight­er but this activ­i­ty taught about the fire safe­ty and pre­ven­tion pro­ce­dures. Kids saved the hotel from burn­ing but it remind­ed me the sequence of Bol­ly­wood flick OM SHANTI ON

Dura­tion for this activ­i­ty 25 min­utes and kids have to pay 12 Kidos to enjoy this activ­i­ty I liked this activ­i­ty a lot !!

Apart from the­se are are so many activ­i­ties where you can see your kid just enjoy­ing a lot like I did but between all this, my lit­tle birth­day boy was enjoy­ing in full city and some­time in the tod­dler room.

  1. I am glad you guys had so much fun! Unfor­tu­nate­ly, our vis­it turned into a night­mare. Have writ­ten about it — http://www.fabulousmomlife.com/travel/kidzania-mumbai-review/

    I will be hon­est in spite of my con­cerns. The con­cept is sim­ply amaz­ing! It was great while the fun last­ed. My son also went in for the police train­ing but enjoyed the Fire fight­ing the most. My daughter’s favorite was the radio jock­ey and stop motion ani­ma­tion expe­ri­ence. ‘Balveer’ was vis­it­ing when we went so the kids were even more hap­pier 🙂
