I didn't find this kind of kids park before. Amazing idea to educate and play around. Slightly boring for parents but this is not a place for you. All activities are interesting even those which you have to pay for (ex. pizza). One things irritates me a lot. Those insistent "pro" photographers. Sometimes I had feeling that posing to photos takes more time then it's real activity. I would understand if afterwards those photos were anyhow nice but they looked bad at all. I know that's additional cash but chill out and let those kids play!

This is such a fab idea for children - not for parents!
It is such a headache if you arrive and get told that there is a huge school party inside!
It is a great concept, but in dubai where children have no idea on queuing and sharing things, it makes it difficult.
It is very noisy, and when inside the options for food is pizza or fried food, so advise to eat something nicer before you go into the madness!
Not suitable for children under 2 as there isn't much to do, as the big kids use the areas for the smaller ones - which isn't very good anyways.

I enjoyed seeing my kids act like they belong to a job and take it very seriously, they have tried many careers ranging from medicine to accounting to news anchors. Its a great way to find the child's passion from an early stage. Also they went to college and earned a degree and they have came to realise that their degree earns them more money. This would then motivate them to continue studying.
The staff were great abd very fun for the kids and overall my kids have really enjoyed Kidzania.

Children "played" for almost an entire day. Brilliant simulation - great concept - if you go to their university for example, you get paid more per "career" etc. Kids absolutely loved it- have been back again after initial visit too - even more fun the next time. Would highly recommend. Excellent value (it is pricey but good deals offered when we purchased tickets). We will most certainly go again & be sure to take friends. (Age range of my children & their friends 8-12 years). I was worried that some of them may be too old, but they loved it. A great "indoor" day out

This is a well designed & developed place for kids. Lot of entertainment & the experience is invaluable. Most of the activities are for kids above 4 years. So the kids should be ideally 4 years, but at least 31/2 yrs to experience many of the activities. The staff are well trained & have a lot of patience to deal with kids from various backgrounds. I spent 7 hours with 2 kids but we could cover about 75%. Better to choose a week day to avoid a big rush. Priced high mainly due to Adult's fees. Why do adults have to pay an almost similar fee as children?
Anyway, the place is great & lot of fun & learning for kids.
