Fun time at Kidzania

During the December holidays, I finally brought my kids to KL's Kidzania after missing out a few times due to full house, lack of time and etc. This time round, I booked the tickets via online few weeks earlier and make sure the date is convenient for us to travel. It was just a few days after Christmas where we started driving to the Curve, with the help of a GPS, and ended parking our car at IKEA. After a light meal, we hurried to the theme park, and we were 15 mins late. There was still a crowd there purchasing tickets.

A view of the place

Anotther view ..... there was really a crowd on the friday after Christmas
I find this is a great place for kids, though 5 hours was not enough for one visit. The kids learnt how to be independent, did some role-playing and learnt something. My kids really enjoy this edutainment cum theme park. However, thanks to advice by Merryn and her earlier posts, I got an idea of what activities are popular and thus, we tried to avoid those activities first so that the kids can 'play' more in those not so crowded activities.

Both my kids became dentists... and learn how to brush teeth!

My little princesss joined  two older kids in delivering a postage. The two kids really sayang her .... taking care of her while delivering the postage.

Both bro and sis became sushi master

My kid wanted to drive .... however, before he can do so, he needed to go for an eye test, buy an insurance and learn how to drive in order to obtain his license. All in all, it takes him almost 2 hours before he finally can start driving. He also learnt how to pump petrol and got paid, in their 'currency'.

Becoming a police .... while the 'firemen' busy putting off a fire at a hotel ..... 

As a first aid nurse
We tried to make them play as much activities as possible, though we did buy them some snacks while queuing. Anyway, they missed out on the hot ones, like being a pilot and a fire fighter which we will try to come earlier in our next trip and let them experience it. However, we poor parents have to endure standing and walking for almost 5 hours!! We queued with them,then we waited for them to finish the activity and the process repeat all over again ... phew!! I think it will be great if they can provide more food stalls and chairs for us poor parents!!

We shall go again in the next school holidays!

  2. My kids also like Kidzania... we went on a weekday (not school holiday) and the ticket is valid all day, which is much better I think!

  17. When we were young, we always had to create our own Kidzania and pretended to be teachers, policeman, mummy & daddy and even cooks! That was fun and easy!

    The kids today are so spoilt with almost the real mock and props!! Nice! My lecturer wife pointed out that this Kidzania experience would help kids to grow up with ambitions!

  18. Twillight - I think it's a great effort to have this park. It's educational, better than those typical theme parks.
