The kids absolutely loved our trip to KidZania! After "checking in" everyone receives a boarding pass to enter. The kids then go to the Bank to receive their money to use for finding jobs, getting a college degree, as well as using it on some of the treats available inside. Once they have their cash they then go to businesses... More

My sons spent a morning at Kidzania. They are age 6 and 8. They chose the jobs they wanted to train for and then spent time learning those jobs - pilot, fireman etc.. After they earned "money" for working, they could spend these on leisure activities such as absailing and go karting. The harder they worked, the more money they... More

The kids had a lot of fun doing "jobs" and being paid in kidzania dollars then spending it on attractions. However the entry fee is eyewateringly expensive and some attractions require real money.

We have read about it so we decide to visit kidzania Dubai. Ticket cost 140 for the kid and 95 for each parent in local currency. So it's about 100 euro the entrance. I advice if you plan to visit to book an online ticket because otherwise the que is quite big.you have to wait around 40 minutes. The stuff... More

It's a great place for small children aged 4 plus to enjoy a lot of different activities. Parents with children below 4 years will have access to limited activities and the trip will seem too expensive then. The perfume making activity is the best!

A total rip off and very disappointing. Half of the activities are under construction and not available. The kidzos that the kids earned cannot be used in the main shop or most of the food stalls. The 'shop' where they can spend them is a tiny kiosk full of rubbish that I wouldn't even buy in a pound shop. There's... More

This is just the best concept and idea we have taken the kids to for a long time. Got our queue jumping ticket and 20% discount through booking.com and did just that - straight to front of the line, kids got their boarding passes and we were in. Have a look at their website to see how it works, but... More

We visited first thing in the morning. We went with my almost four year old daughter and paid for full price tickets for the three of us. When at the entrance, the man charged me for a four year old and upon informing him that she was three, he told me to upgrade to a four year old ticket (50... More

First when I heard from Kidzania, I thought plaah. What fun could it be to pretend to do adult stuff. It turns out, a lots of fun indeed! Kids get to play different roles of adult jobs, such as dentist, perfumer, model, customer or a salesperson in a grocery store, etc. And they love it! Somewhat expensive but and excellent... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
