KidZania has opened its largest children’s role-playing park yet.
KidZania Cuicuilco in Mexico City features, for the first time, a fleet of hands-on kid-sized eco-friendly vehicles that young visitors can drive around a miniature city. They will also be taught environmental stewardship, empathy for kids with different abilities and how to make “good-for-you” food and recreation choices,
Fuelled by a child’s natural desire to create, explore and collaborate, KidZania is equal parts entertainment and education. Young visitors enter the new Cuicuilco outlet through a mock airport into the 150,000 sq ft city complete with 90 replica work places including city hall, bank, restaurants, hospital, sports stadium and more. Once inside, children can choose from among 120 different trades and professions. It’s the ultimate role-playing experience for kids aged up to 14 years.
“KidZania Cuicuilco is our most inventive and engaging theme park yet,” believes Kidzania founder and president Xavier Lopez Ancona. “We’ve introduced 21st century career choices, elevated awareness around global issues like the environment, and made certain that every child, no matter their level of ability, can participate.”
KidZania Cuicuilco also features a state-of-the-art security system to ensure a safe and fun experience for children, whether navigating the park with or without their parents. Every child and parent/chaperone receives matching RFID-bracelets, on entry, tracking them to within one metre. While the children play, parents can relax in a lounge featuring a spa, movie room, restaurant and internet café.
