Fun Filled Family Getaway: KidZania Delhi NCR

As soon as exams got over, my kids started insisting us to take them to their favourite place which is KidZania Delhi NCR. We happily obliged as it was a much deserved break and also it’s a place where they can have unlimited fun along with some learning too. KidZania is an entire city full of fun for kids.

It’s a place which offers various role play activities for kids ranging from doctors, engineers, lawyers, judges, dancers, radio jockeys and many more. There is a hospital, a dental clinic, petrol pump, driving school, airport, Pepper fry furniture store, services like DHL, Bajaj energy conservation hub to name a few. All these are child driven activities which provide children real hands on experience of the working of these places.

The best part of KidZania is their security system. They provide a device to every member of the family which helps parents to keep a track of the kids and locate where they are. So, while the kids are engaged in all the activities, parents can easily sit back and enjoy themselves at the parents lounge. There are a number of food joints which offer a variety of food and coffee shops. To keep the memories of KidZania, there is a photo shop and a souvenir shop as well.

KidZania has also come up with some activities for adults too. So, parents who want to participate can opt for activities like Amity University, Archaeological site, Bollywood, courthouse, Disco lounge, Furtado’s school of music and Shiamak Dance academy and many more.

KidZania is the best place to celebrate your kid’s birthday and let their friends have an experience they will cherish forever. This place has so much to do for everyone that it makes it impossible to complete all the activities in one visit. Kids also get to open an account in Yes Bank and manage their own Kidzos, debit card and Pazzport.

For performing the role activities the kids have to either earn or spend their kidzos which enables them to learn the concept of earning, spending and saving money. At the end of their visit, they can also shop for themselves at the departmental store.

The activities which became a hit for my kids were rock climbing for my elder one and nursing the baby for my younger one. Apart from that my kids also enjoyed performing surgeries at the hospital and the dental treatment at the clinic.
For us, the most joyful sight was watching the kids running around as cops catching a thief and extinguishing fire as fire men. The experience of sitting at a fire engine was simply unforgettable.

So, what are you waiting for, take your kids to the most exciting place in the city and just sit back and enjoy.
