Kidzania Kuala Lumpur is a memorable, edutainment centre designed to show and encourage kids to ‘work’ in professional jobs. Teaching them about different career choices, it looks like an indoor city with miniature-sized replicas of office buildings and cars. Once you breeze through the AirAsia airport-style entrance, children can take turns performing over 90 different types of grown-up jobs including pretending to be a surgeon, judge, mechanic and hairdresser. An indoor theme park that first started out in Mexico, today there are several Kidzania Kuala Lumpur experiences around the world and this is Malaysia’s first outlet: it is located in Petaling Jaya, about 25 minutes from the KL city centre. There are more than 40 ‘stops’ you can make with your offspring – it all depends on which jobs catch their fancy. Only adults with a kid are allowed entrance into the 80,000sqft Kidzania, and only children can enter ‘office’ buildings – you can watch your child through office windows. An exception to this rule is the Broadcasting Zone, where you get to watch them ‘deliver’ today’s headlines, man the prompter and more.
The best part is that you shouldn’t worry about your child’s safety as on-site Zupervisors are thoroughly professional and handle kids extremely well. Plus to help you keep track of your child at this busy and popular one-stop learning centre, they have to wear an electronic tracking bracelet that prevents them from leaving Kidzania without their parents.
