What to do
KidZania
Dubai Mall

At this kid-crazy centre, your kids can have a fabulous time whilst taking on grown up tasks. Children can take on adult roles and perform over 80 real life professions whilst they are paid for their work. In a city built to scale for children (so everything is a little smaller), complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, kids can be employed by recognisable "establishments" by leading multi-national and local brands. learning socialisation skills, mutual co-operation, teamwork, self-esteem and respect. Upon entry, kids are greeted at an airport style ‘check-in’ counter, where they will be given a security bracelet, their boarding pass, a city map and a cheque for 50 of the official currency of KidZania.

Give your little chocoholic the chance to become a chocolatier in the KidZania Chocolate Factory where they can really milk their sweet-tooth. Is your little one destined for TV? The KidZania Television Studio offers on-air hosts and reporters the unique opportunity to work behind the scenes and as a team to produce a professional television broadcast. Or, do they dream of flying? Children can also work as pilots and co-pilots as they soar the skies, taking their passengers on a flight, - they can even be cabin crew members carrying out the pre-flight safety demonstration! If you get a little peckish, there’s always a McDonald’s outlet where you can grab a bite while your child assemble their very own burger! Kidzania is open to children between the ages of 2-16, however, most of the activities are recommended for kids of the ages 4-16. While you wait, take advantage of the parent's lounge where you can put your feet up and have a cup of coffee with free internet access, a TV lounge and a café.
