Our Mumbai friends often raved how their kids loved KidZania which opened its first park in India way back in 2013. Now Noida kids too can enjoy the world of KidZania, a global edutainment theme park that opened here on May 26.

KidZania Delhi NCR is the 24th metropolis and second in India after Mumbai success. Earlier this year in January Shah Rukh Khan, the co-promoter of the project, had launched KidZania by hoisting a KidZania flag in the Entertainment City. The franchise license for KidZania in India is owned by Imagination Edutainment.

What is KidZania?
KidZania is a city full of real life adventures ready to be explored by kids spread across three floors over a huge area of nearly one lakh sq ft. The real world city is replicated at a kiddie-level with battery cars running on paved roads flanked by residential and industrial buildings and city has its own money called KidZos (as in monopoly or life board games) needed to work your way through it. A great way of empowering kids with financial literacy.

Here kids can slip into the roles of over 90 different career tags and experience the professional world. They can be surgeon, TV producer, banker, chef, policeman, candy maker, fire man, beautician or a pilot navigating his way on a simulator fitted on Airbus fuselage hanging at the entrance.
