Keeping kids and teenagers active, engaged and occupied through the summer holidays can be tricky, especially with the summer heat reducing any possibility of outdoor activities. Having an indoor play area that children up to the age of 16 can enjoy is an essential for many parents.

At KidZania Abu Dhabi, visitors can enjoy 365 days of unlimited play for Dhs950 with their brilliant annual pass. Not only that, but your little one will also receive a free KidZania PaZZport, 15 per cent discount on birthday parties and the KidZania shop as well as 50 kidZos (KidZania’s currency).

With over 40 activities, there’s no chance of getting the dreaded ‘I’m boooored‘ complaint at KidZania. Children from age one to 16 can step into any role imaginable, including firemen, construction workers, police officers, fashion designers and more.

Rove Hotels have their own activity space, giving little ones the chance to work in a hotel in whichever role they like. Whether they want to be a receptionist, housekeeper or waiter, there’s a chance to pick up some real hospitality skills early on.

They can also learn the benefits of fruit with Lacnor’s juice factory. From ingredients to safety and hygiene, this factory gives a real life insight into how to bottle up a range of healthy fruit juices.

With so many educational and fun activities to try, KidZania’s annual pass make a great solution to keeping kids entertained all year round. Children can even learn the value of money and managing their earnings with KidZos.

We just wish KidZania existed when we were younger…
