Tucked away in the Dubai mall Kidzania is any parents answer to keeping the kids engaged constructively. I initially thought it was a bit pricey but was pleasantly surprised by the aount of fun and knowledge the children get out of it.

Having the children manage their 50 kidzanian pocket money teaches the children the value of money and hard work. 2 weeks after the trip, my children are still excited about making pizza, chemistry, fire fighting and Emergency Response.

My critique would be to create some sort of engagement for the parents as well...e.g as the children are locked in doing their activities, it would be nice to provide teh parents with a small brochure to explain what their kids would be doing. I often had to peer through the window, distracting them, to know what they were up to.........

A bit costly but worth the penny.

Excellent idea to keep the young ones engaged. It was good to see how interesting they found it all. My son was especially amused at the thought of getting a "driving licence" and the thought of flying a plane. The go kart on the arena was also a lot of fun for him. Although we didn't have so much time to spend at Kidzania, I easily saw it as a place where you could keep the children all day and they'll be as engaged as you want them to be. The concept is an excellent one!

As a parent, I find it a bit pricey since we bought the package worth 200 aed for the kid. It includes entrance, cheque worth 50 kidzania money (like a signing bonus :)), a photo souvenir, and 2 food vouchers. Parents pay an entrance fee of 95aed as well. The kid's package fee is okay but the parent's entrance fee is a tad too expensive in my opinion.

What made it worth it was the happiness in the face of the children. It may be tiring but they find it fun and interesting. They became paramedics, firefighters, pilots, pediatricians, painters, chef (they made pizza and burgers), and a whole lot more.

Bigger kids can try out anchoring the news, be radio DJs, race cars, climb walls, perform surgeries and even earn a degree.

It was a fun experience and the kids get to have an insight on what they want to be in the future.

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.
