Kidzania Manila – The Ultimate Play City for Kids!
Kidzania Manila is an education and entertainment-themed city for cool kids aged 4-14, where they can role-play their dream profession, learn how to earn money, and assert their independence.
Last year, just when summer’s about to start, we went to KidZania. My nieces have been looking forward to visiting the City for Kids and they were so excited to act and work like adults inside.
Here’s our first timer’s guide to Kidzania Manila:
You enter via the Kidzania International Airport along 11th avenue in Bonifacio Global City.
Ticket prices from October 8, 2015 onwards:
Weekdays: Mondays-Thursdays Weekends: Fridays – Sundays (and National Holidays)
Children (4-14 years old) – P900 Children (4-14 years old) – P1,100
Toddlers (1-3 years old) – P500 Toddlers (1-3 years old) – P600
Babies/ Kids below two (2) feet in height – FREE Babies/ Kids below two (2) feet in height – FREE
Adults – P500.00 Adults – 600.00
Each kid receives a check they can encash at BPI within KidZania worth 50 KidZos (the currency in Kidzania) to spend on different products and services inside the play city.
Only the kids are allowed to do transactions inside the establishments. So, to the parents and guardians out there, it’s fine to let them do what they need to do. They’re “grown-ups” in this city anyway. 😉
Tip: I recommend that you open a bank account already and teach the kids to save some of their money when they exit the city.
Maps are given to parents or guardians to properly plan your trip with the kids. It’s best to customize the experience based on their interests. No need to go through all the activities for your time is limited.
Okay, paparazzi mode on.
Then you can go around the city, start your tour, have the kids work and earn more kidzos, study at universities and even go shopping.
As for my nieces, they tried the wall climbing first, where they have to pay 15 kidzos for the activity. Personally speaking, I think the kids should try to work and earn first before they start spending coz they might run out of kidzos. But anyway, kanya-kanyang trip ‘yan!
But first! Stretching muna.. 🙂
Every after a few minutes, the Ambulance and Fire trucks are roaming around the city, just like the ones in real life! 🙂
Here are some photos of the city, to give you a hint on how it looks inside:
KidZania is a cool place for the kids to learn the value of work, the importance of improving your skills, and when to save or spend money, all in a fun and game-like way.
I hope they also have a place where kids can be entrepreneurs, buy and sell the crafty things they make or food they bake, and not just a part of the work force.
