This is a great place for kids especially under 13. You can keep them busy for at least 5 hours and they learn a lot about the world of grown-ups. They have to work to earn money. It's like a real life!

You may not want to try during school holiday, it will be very packed. Children may not have time the one session to explore all the activities because some have to queue too. Not very suitable for toddlers, kindergarten students around 4 and 5 years old would be able to enjoy the role play. Parents or adults to accompany must pay half entrance fee also, which is quite expensive.

I went to Kidzania Jkt with the school program to accompany my son. The location was great. The store was very popular so even it was on weekdays, it was very packed. The kids really enjoyed playing, especially pretending to be car racer, lab scientist, etc. Overall it was a great educative experience for the kids, which would put a smile to every parents' face. I wish they made some games for the adults too....

In Jakarta, and some other cities (Kuala Lupur, Bangkok) they have a place called "Kidzania". It's an educational entertainment concept, hard to explain. Any case, my son's "session" was from 9am to 2pm. I thought we'd be out of there in an hour...
They begin by giving him a check for $50 "Kidzo" which he must take to the bank and cash- by himself
We started him as an airline pilot, he had to wait 20 minutes with a pile of kids, then he went through "training", without me, and then he got in the cockpit, with 16 other kids in their cockpit simulators- we parents could see them on a video monitor only.
and then he got in line to get his salary, 5 Kidzos
He wanted to drive the race cars, which cost $20 Kidzos, and first he had to get a medical check up, which cost 10 Kidzos, without me and then he had to get a license, another 15 Kidzos
and then we had to wait until 1130 because the race track was unavailable, so we did some things in the interim test driving a car, 0 kidzos, lining up to be a firefighter -only $1 Kidzo salary for being a firefighter finally got to drive the race car.

But not enough Kidzo's to pay for the second time
He had to count his money.
He took a job as a TV presenter, followed directions, read from the teleprompter. TV Presenters get paid well, 20 Kidzos but by then the race track was unavailable again so he couldn't drive
So he tried dentistry, again, having to sit and learn first, take direction, wait for his turn, work with others, hold a tool
Dentists get paid well too, 20 Kidzos
Then he learned to be a magician... and again, no parents allowed, so he was learning for half an hour or more with me no where around, then he did the magic show- and he was good... he had to pretend to be dead and the magician pulled a sword out of him, and then he was in handcuffs and had to get out of them...
after the show... Getting paid...
This was just fantastic and fun.
