“kids love it, parents can relax in lounge”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Weekends can be chaotic there, but if you have kids it is a treat for them. It's just like Wannado City (?name) in Florida, but maybe better. They have a nice parents lounge you can go to and chill while they run around. There's wifi, cafe, magazines, films, so you can pass the time. Kids and parents get electronic bracelets so they cannot leave without you, and you can go to a screen in the lounge and find their whereabouts by pressing your bracelet against it. Cool! It was clean and well organized, though a bit crowded. There is parking, and it is in front of Parque Arauco, a very nice mall in Santiago. There's also a big outdoor park behind kidzania, which you can also visit.

“Terrible concept”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

Terrible concept and absolutely out of place, invading a urban park.
Teaching children the basics of capitalism instead of having fun in the outdoors.

“Adults are absolutely not welcome”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Crowded and badly ventilated, kids will actually get to do only a very small fraction of what's advertised. Their adult guardians are actively dis-encouraged from standing with the kids in the queues, and there's little other places to wait out the -eternal- five hours a full "shift" takes. In fairness, my kids have enjoyed going there for birthdays -where other parents get to endure the ordeal for a shorter three hours- but I will not be taking them again.

“Kids loved it but it helped they had some Spanish”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Great concept. Kids earn money by doing jobs and then spend their dollars on activities or small toys at the end. Loads of things to try and staff are helpful, some even had English which helped. Do allow several hours as difficult to tear them away. Adults cafe is great, comfy sofas and PCs with Internet.

Quite expensive but we went twice as kids loved it. Kids need a bit of Spanish or to not mind using some hand language and nodding etc.

“Unfortunate experience.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Looks like a good place for kids to learn and have fun but don't go if they don't speak Spanish unless accompanied by an adult translator. Inside guides spoke limited Spanish, kids unable to understand how things worked. Don't be confused by Kidzoes money, only redeemable if taking part in excercises so make sure you have money to buy food, drinks & things.
