KidZania at Dubai Mall is a creative educational experience with fun for children. A normal session runs for over 6 hours and for good experience it is necessary to leave them there for the full session. Generally children over a certain age can be left alone while smaller ones have to be accompanied by parents. It is an artificial indoor... More

Attended here in mid July after being recommended to us by an Aussie expat now living in Dubai. My 6 year old absolutely loved it and could have stayed for hours more. The Aquarium and Kidzania were her two highlights of her week in Dubai. A very impressive set up.

The idea is nice. I went there with my 5 year old son who wasn't interested in seeing what is inside. I asked the employees to give me us an idea by showing a video or even letting us in to take a look inside in order to get my son excited but they refused. The other fact that made... More

I entered with my 3 kids (10,8,5 years old) as first time. Even we explored the map and had some idea about what to expect in the mini kids city but even though it was a shock for my younger kids. The elder one enjoyed it and want to try all. We had good experience for the kids after we... More

My 9 year-old daughter, who's generally a cheery soul, described this as above. Most things she wanted to go on were either shut, temporarily closed, or had a huge queue. Most had poorly managed queues, and often it wasn't clear where you should line up. In Waitrose, the first kid gets to be cashier and the others just help toddlers... More

Nice idea but tired looking set up, staff clearly bored and rude spoilt local kids run riot. Have to pay loads to accompany my child . Ridiculous, like I want to go in. Nuff said.

When you go in there, you feel like you entered inside a fairytale!!! As an adult I loved everything there, the artificial sky, clouds, stars, trees... everything was magical! Regarding activities there for kids, they were creative and so encouraging as kids were so excited to work in many jobs. The opening time was from 5-pm till 11-pm but this... More

A nice place for the Kids, who can do different role play and gain some information about real life situation. Children above 120 cm can go alone... while smaller ones should be accompanied by an adult.

We went there with our kids. They enjoyed very much as this is the first time. The staff was helpful and cooperative. You will need atleast 3 visits so that the kids can enjoy all the outlets.

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.
