Play it Big only in KidZania – the land of cool kids. More than simply a kid’s theme park and a family edutainment centre, KidZania is a kid-sized city where children can pick from a large number of role-playing activities, earn a salary (in the form of kidZos, the official currency of KidZania), pay for goods and services and manage an ATM card – all the things they see adults do in real life. In KidZania, kids are empowered to take charge and make their own decisions, through role-play.
The KidZania experience is about real-life experiences, reproducing adult life and therefore providing a vision of the ways in which children relate to the environment and learn from the adults around them. Children in KidZania are motivated to achieve their optimal potential. They feel good about themselves, are entertained while they learn, and gain new experiences each time they revisit the city.
Role-playing is a timeless and universal part of childhood learning. At KidZania, kids learn by experiencing different professions, how a city works, financial literacy, living in a community and how to work both independently and as a team, and most importantly, real-life skills.
Among some of the interesting activities that kids can do during their visit to KidZania are, piloting an airplane, putting out fires, being a paramedic, a surgeon or a dentist, hosting and supporting the production of a television program, being a fashion model, a scientist, a CSI agent or a chef. By completing the prescribed tasks successfully, children earn kidZos which can be saved in the bank or spent on anything they wish in KidZania such as food and beverages or even a degree at the KidZania National College.
At KidZania, real-world brands bring authenticity to the experience. KidZania provides companies the chance to make a positive difference in the world. By blending reality with entertainment, KidZania provides an authentic and powerful developmental experience, preparing kids to understand and manage their world. KidZania’s partners gain unparalleled brand exposure as they contribute towards being a part of the city of kids.

KidZania was founded in Mexico City by Xavier López Ancona, a young entrepreneur, who dreamed of creating a unique entertainment experience for kids that could promote change, inspire global citizenship and build strong community awareness through an experience that is hands-on, engaging, educational, and most importantly, fun. The first park opened in 1999 in Mexico. KidZania was immediately successful in its first year and now has 23 locations in 19 countries on 4 continents with over 900 Industry Partners and, to date, over 42 million visitors worldwide. Additionally, a total of 5 locations are under development in Delhi, India (2016); Doha, Qatar (2017); Johannesburg, South Africa (2017); Paris, France (2017); and the United States (2018).
