KidZania Manila

First things first, a lot of people are probably wondering, “What is KidZania?

Basically, KidZania is an international franchise of indoor, educational, entertainment centers that house miniature cities built just for kids. Just like in real-life, kids can “work” in the KidZania city and get a chance to earn specially-made money (called KidZos) which they can then spend on services for themselves.

There are currently over 90 activities or jobs that can be role played, some of which include working in a fast food kitchen, working in a bank, painting houses, doing laundry, hosting a radio show, creating new products in a lab, and so much more. This diverse range of jobs and vocations are meant to teach the kids the importance of hard work and the role every job plays in society.

Now this might sound like a lot to take on, but KidZania delivers a rewarding experience that allows both children and adults to have fun and learn important life skills and lessons at the same time!

How to get to KidZania

Located in The Fort, KidZania Manila can be conveniently found just across Market! Market!– making how to get there pretty easy! Just follow any of the ways of getting to Market! Market! mentioned below and take a quick walk to KidZania’s location.

If you’re coming from the North, make your way to the Ayala MRT station (whether via bus or MRT, whichever is more convenient for you) and look for the bus terminal next to it. Get on the buses that are designated to go to The Fort, these should make stops at Market! Market!. Alternatively, you can also look for jeeps that are headed to Market! Market! but these might be tougher to find.

Coming from the South, get on a northbound bus headed for Fairview or Monumento. Either of these buses should make a stop by the Ayala MRT Station– from that point just follow the same directions detailed above.

If you’re coming from C5, simply get on a jeep or FX that’s headed towards Kalayaan Avenue and get off at the intersection of C5 and Kalayaan. Look for the jeeps headed straight for Market! Market! and get on one.

Finally, if you’re coming from Makati, you can take the standard route from the Ayala MRT Station if it’s near you. Otherwise, you can either take FPI-bound jeeps along Pasong Tamo and Pasay road or take AFP Housing-bound jeeps in Guadalupe– in any case, these should pass by The Fort or Market! Market! directly.

What to do at KidZania

Now that you’re finally in KidZania, the question of what to do or where to start can feel pretty intimidating in the giant play city space. Luckily, upon arrival in KidZania city, the kids are given a map of the city and 50 KidZos– giving them the freedom to choose and experience whatever they want.

We aren’t joking when we say that the city space is massive, so you probably won’t be able to cover everything in KidZania in one go. Make sure to prioritize the activities and places that appeal to you the most and get to them first- don’t worry, if you miss out on anything, it only means more fun and repeat visits!

As mentioned earlier, KidZos are Kidzania’s special currency which kids can use to avail of services and experiences in the city. The great thing about KidZos is that KidZos cannot be bought, only earned; so if a participant runs out of KidZos, then the only way to get more is to earn them through working.

This means that the fun and work and play all blend seamlessly with each other, creating a truly unforgettable and important learning experience that is guaranteed to have a positive impact on both kids and adults alike!
