This child-size replica of a real city as the famous indoor educational theme park.
KidZania Kuala Lumpur located in Mutiara Damansara in a new seven-storey building opposite The Curve.
In this theme park, children aged between two and 12, will learn about the adult world as they get involved in role-playing 100 activities at more than 55 establishments.
They will also learn about the value of money as they pay for goods and services with KidZania currency KidZos and choose to experience up to 100 occupations including as pilots, television anchors, surgeons, chefs, firemen and policemen.
While Kidzania is all about children role-playing as adults, Legoland features the vastly popular Lego themed rides for children.
When opening an account at the bank, children will receive real cash cards to be used at ATMs in KidZania. It also has a modern security system and visitors must wear security bracelets that can trace the location of the chidren.
Children can take part in 60 activities over five hours. It will be a one time payment which include the price of other activities.
