“Well organised and a great day for young children!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Situated about half an hour from the centre of the city, it cost us about RM$45 to catch a taxi to Kidzania.

We went with our daughters aged 7 & 9.

Pros:
* Lots of fun activities for the children to do (independently from adults).
* Educational (in a fun way).
* Promoted independence and allow my daughters to mix with children from around the world (my eldest ended up making a new friend from Singapore)
* Reasonably priced.
* Children over 8 don't need to be accompanied by parents, meaning lots of time for mum and dad to visit the great shopping opportunities nearby. You can't go into the activities with the children anyway, so you just end up sitting around like a spare part :-)
* The idea of having a Kidzania currency worked very well and the kids quickly caught onto the idea of earning money.
* Photos are available for purchase at a reasonable price (RM$50 for 3 large photos).
*Good variety of jobs available.
* We went on a Wednesday and while there were about 5 school groups there, the place was still not crowded and there were not really any queues for any of the jobs.
* My girls commented that all of the staff were so friendly, which is admirable considering they're spending their who day around noisy, excited children. But their enthusiasm rubbed off onto the children!!!


Cons:
* We were a little lost when we first got there...didn't know exactly what we were suppose to do and had to ask (staff we asked were very helpful though).
* Some of the jobs were not as good as they could've been...for example the Cadbury shop was a real let down compared to what it could've been with a bit of imagination.

It was our first time to a Kidzania and we went on the recommendation of a friend. It was a fantastic day for our children who didn't want to leave. We would definitely visit another Kidzania if the chance arose.

“Kids simply love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We went for 2 days as we only complete about 10 jobs on 1 day, from 10-5pm. There are altogether 90+ jobs! The kids had lots of fun in the enclosed attraction. The only con is the food served in the attraction.

“A Great Birthday Gift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Brought my 7 year old son here as his birthday present this year together with her younger sister. Overall, it was a good experience. The infrastructure was awesome, many types of occupations for the kids to participate in, queue was within expectations of other theme parks, staff was splendid in attitude and English language competency. Of course, food was charged on the high side consistent with other theme parks in the world. Plan to arrive early at 10am and spend the entire day until closing at 5pm. Even then, there were many other occupations which we missed. It was worth it for us and my kid. We'll be back to cover the rest very soon.

“Great idea, hopeless execution”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

A place to waste good money. The staff are not passionate about their jobs and don't bother about time. They star and finish an activity as they like. Was in a queue with my 3 year old only to be told they are not starting the activity that was published. A rip off.
