It’s one of the most popular indoor edutainment attractions in Dubai for children of all ages, and now KidZania has opened in the capital.

Found on the ground floor of Yas Mall, KidZania is spread across an impressive 55,000 square metres, and designed to offer a real life role playing experience to children aged 1 through to 16.

The award-winning attraction combines education and entertainment, allowing children to unleash their imagination and get creative in an interactive city made for children, and run by them.

Does your little one dream of being a doctor? Born to be an astronaut? Or perhaps they’ve always wanted to become a top chef? Offering children the chance to experience an array of scenarios across more than 50 different real-life professions, KidZania is here to make their dreams come true through interactive learning experiences. From astronauts learning about space, to police officers performing detective work and chefs cooking up tasty food, role-playing activities will introduce them to different careers in a fun and experiential way.

Along with acquiring real life skills, kids are also made aware of the importance of earning Kidzos (KidZania’s currency), and managing their earnings, preparing them to be responsible future adults.

Tickets are priced at Dhs185 for a child’s economy pass (for children aged 4 to 16), Dhs105 for under 4s and Dhs75 for accompanying adults. If you book tickets ahead online, you can enjoy a 10 per cent discount.
