Imagine a world where kids rule, a place where they can learn how to drive at the age of 12 and be a police officer, doctor, or construction worker for a day. Since 1999, KidZania has introduced children and families to the exciting and entertaining world of role-playing by re-creating small cities (complete with buildings, paved streets, cars, a recession-free economy, and recognizable destinations) made only for kids.
KidZania recently announced the grand opening of its newest park, KidZania Cuicuilco, in Mexico City—a 150,000-sq.-ft., kid-sized city complete with 90 real world establishments, including city hall, bank, hospital, restaurants and sports stadium, just to name a few. Not only does the park introduce children (ages 4 to 14) to new and relevant careers in an extremely entertaining way, but for the first time, the park franchise will integrate innovative experiences to teach children environmental stewardship, empathy for kids with different abilities, how to make “good for you” food and hands-on driving and road safety lessons on eco-friendly vehicles made to fit children.
