KidZania, one of the most inventive kid’s entertainment brands, will be unveiling its latest location this week. The launch of KidZaniak Bangkok at Siam Paragon will provide children and their parents a safe, unique, and very realistic educational environment that allows kids between the ages of four to fourteen to do what comes naturally to them: role-playing by mimicking traditionally adult activities. As in the real world, children perform “jobs” and are either paid for their work or pay to shop or to be entertained. The indoor theme park, on the 5th floor of Siam Paragon, is a city built to scale for children, complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles, a functioning economy, and recognizable destinations in the form of “establishments” sponsored and branded by leading multi-national and local brands.
KidZania Bangkok is the largest KidZania attraction in Asia, introducing kids to more than 80 careers in an indoor replica of a real-life city. Young visitors enter KidZania Bangkok through the park’s mock airport into the sprawling 10,000 square meter, kid-sized city. Once in the park, kids choose from more than 80 careers (doctor, police, chef, model, reporter, etc.) and 65 establishments (city hall, bank, restaurants, hospital, sports stadium, etc.) that it takes to run a city. Aspiring pilots and aircrew can climb into a real Air Asia Boeing 737 fuselage and cockpit for a test flight. Future auto mechanics can learn new skills at the B-Quik auto repair shop. Or, children can explore KidZania Bangkok’s more unique establishments, such as the Green Tea Factory or Drinking Water Research Center.
KidZania Bangkok is on the 5th floor of Siam Paragon and officially launches on Friday 29th March 2013. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Until the end of this month you can get discounted tickets from their booth on the 4th floor of Siam Paragon or from ThaiTicketMajor. More information can be found on their Facebook and website.
