KidZania Singapore, Singapore’s largest family edutainment center opens yesterday on 12 April 2016!
A kid-sized replica of a real city where kids get to be the adults while parents take the back seat and let your little bosses take the lead and be in charge for a day! They get to make their own decisions, pick up values such as financial planning, discipline and teamwork through the benefits of 60 role-play from over 37 industry partners (17 local brands).
Here’s the LOWDOWN for your Kids to glide thru this big city smoothly!
Within the big city, Kids are given the freedom to take charge on their own for the day (while parents can watch them from outside), as they learn the individual professionals purely by themselves. However, moving around the city, parents have to take note that Kids aged 8 and below must be accompanied by a parent/guardian(Adults aged 18 and above) at all times. Therefore, do give the little ones an idea on what will happen in case they are afraid to make the step out to try things themselves. Connection within the city will not be available, so if there’s a need to log on, ask around for KidZania Wifi password at the Check in counter, or swing over to the Parents Lounge at Level 2!
2. CHECK IN
Just liked any other airport procedures, upon arriving at KidZania, hop over to the take your queue at the AIRPORT TICKET counter (whether you bought your tickets online or on the spot), your kids will be lavish with 5 items; a boarding pass, security bracelets and city map 20 kidZos and a bank card containing 30 kidZos which you can cash out at the Bank (later). Do take note that ticket counters open at 9.15am while the last admission is at 30 minutes before the park closes. To enter, proceed to the DEPARTURE (left) area.
KidZania has currency of their own; “Kidzos” where kids can use it across other KidZania in the 23 countries. If your kids want to activate their debit card, they may do so at MAYBANK. Once again, they have to queue up (themselves and with assistance from the friendly Kidzguardians) to get their card started before they try out at the role-playing. In which they will work, earn and use kidZos to partake in activities, save or spend to purchase goods and services. Just liked the real world, there will be ATMs and iKiosks in the city, where they can manage their finances at any time during their visit.
To make sure Kids are safe in this enormous center, everyone who enters the park will be tagged with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) security bracelet. Kids are only allowed to leave the park with an adult if his/her bracelet matches that of the adult who accompanied them. Remember to return the bracelet at the Customs & Immigration area.
5. ROLE-PLAY ACTIVITIES
Look out for the Census Board displayed outside each establishment which will indicate the activity type, minimum age, duration of play, and how much kidZos you can earn or need to pay. Some activities may have higher requirements for age and height. However, if your younger ones below 4 years old, they will be considered as toddlers, and there are some specific area where they can enjoy while waiting for the older siblings – namely the Kindergarten and RightZKeepers Residence. If not sure where to start, head over to JOB INFORMATION COUNTER on LEVEL 1 to find out what’s suitable for your kids.
6. QUEUE & EXIT SIGNS & RESTROOMS
Always be the perfect citizen of KidZania to make sure that everyone have a great time, so take your queue behind the line, and always trash your own rubbish (no littering Kay!). And if you wish to exit, follow the exit signs to the immigration area , instead of going round and round as it’s definitely easy to get lost if it’s your first visit. Visit the restroom before your kids even start their activities as restrooms are not located in all area:
- on first level it’s beside THE SOUP SPOON & IMMIGRATION AREA.
- on second level, located beside HEALTH INSTITUTE, (nursing room on same level too).
7. DEGREE = MORE KIDZOS
Want to earn more KidZos? Similar to real life education or work society, earn a degree at the University (The LEARNING LAB – level 1) can upgrade the job and course pay out!
8. BE A CITIZEN
Enjoy the privileges like earning more KidZos and exclusive discounts i.e highest tier – Honorable Citizen; after achieving 60 stamps, your kids receive extra+6Z, 15%off The National Store and save 15Z on the redemption at the KidZania department store and many more!
9. STROLLER FRIENDLY
With wide paths and service lifts for easy access throughout the city, KidZania Singapore is a stroller friendly city for all to come, trial and tested by us!
10. EXPECTED HOURS
There is definitely loads to take in within a day, but to ensure every kid have their experience as much possible, KidZania advice Kids and families to allocate a minimum of 3 hours, and optimally 5 hours, taking in consideration on the respective waiting times for each establishment.
