KidZania, Kuala Lumpur is officially open on the 28th February 2012, and last Sat we get to bring the girls to explore the City of Kids. KidZania building has the same concept like an airport. First, we need to present our tickets to the ground staff in order to receive our boarding pass and bracelets.
**Not very pleased because the ground staff is supposed to give us the park map and 50 Kidzos cheque for each of the kids, which they did not. Therefore we had to run down again to get it ourselves=( In case they did not give you, please do ask from them.**
The price list as shown.
Our bracelets and 50 Kidzos cheque which can be used to open an account at Kidzania's bank (CIMB Bank). Once your bank account is created, you will be given an ATM card.
Proceed to the next level for boarding. At this level, your bracelet will need to be scanned by the staff before entering the theme park.
KidZania- Get Ready for a Better World. In here, your kids will be able play the oldest known game - PLAYING GROWN-UPS!
*In order to become a driver, your kid got to meet certain requirements such as the age and height. Kid must be above 4 yrs old and have at least 120cm. Big E does not meet the requirements...sobs**She cannot drive, thus cannot do the refueling.
At KidZania, it has its own currency which is known as Kidzo. Kids will get paid by working or it can be used to purchase goods or services. That's sounds pretty cool,right? They get to learn and experience what adults are actually doing in reality.
Their first job....Cleaning window and both of them get to earn Kidzos! Happy nya!
Big E got the chance to become a tour guide and she also get paid for the job. While small E get to experience the job of delivering and collecting parcel from selective places. I didn't know hubs brought big E to become the TM technician..aaahahhaha....Wondering what they were fixing....
Big E didn't get to fly the plane because there were some 'hiccups' going on between the parents and staffs. Bigger kids were pushing the smaller one which annoyed big E. At last, we both gave up and left. =(
Both of them get back in the mission again, to work for the bank. They are supposed to collect Kidzos from selected establishments as required by the bank.
**They fully armed before proceeding with their special task......hehehehhe
Big E actually went for two training sessions. The first session was merely a talk without going for a practical training (fire fighting). I was told that it is a rotating session whereby one session is on the talk and another is on the practical training. **I was not pleased again as the staff did not mention to us the session is actually on the talk or fire fighting. I would be happy at least they take the courtesy to inform us when we were queuing.** We will then have a choice whether to join that particular session or not. To me, I think every kids will wish to experience the fire fighting,right? Anyway, both sessions also the kids will get paid.
While my little vain pot went for a manicure session. Instead of getting paid, small E has to pay for the service...The sweet jie jie (big sister) was providing her a good and patience service. I know it's not easy to handle this 'cili padi', but the little girl did a good job! Anyway, how do you know whether you will get paid or vice versa. Simple, look out for this sign ' ECONOMY Z+ (you will get paid), ECONOMY Z- (you have to pay).
At the end of the day, the kids have gained lots of precious knowledge while exploring what it's like to live and work in a real functioning city. Hubs and I were having good time accompanying them, that we both so wanted to be a kid again. Overall, I think there are more rooms for improvement that KidZania should look into. Hopefully the next time we go again, we will enjoy ourselves more.
