The little one and I are excited for the opening of the local KidZania. I am more excited to see my little man enjoy each of the awesome attractions in that would-be wonderful place for kiddos. If you are as excited as we are, here’s your chance to have a taste of what this new-kid-attraction-to-watch-out-for will offer once they open their doors here in the Philippines, the KidZania Go! event.

KidZania Manila, the play city where kids will do big things, brings its teaser event, KidZania Go!, to the Rockwell Tent at Rockwell Center from June 13 to 14, 2015. With this free pop-up event, kids can get a sneak peek of what awaits them when KidZania Manila opens in Bonifacio Global City this year.  There will be multiple sessions during the two-day run of KidZania Go!, with each session featuring a preview of the play city’s role-play activities for kids.

The fastest growing global leader in educational entertainment, KidZania is set to open its first kid-sized play city in the Philippines within the year. The interactive play city will be open for kids 4 to 14 years old and will feature inspiration, fun, and learning through realistic role-play.

KidZania Manila believes that kids’ boundless curiosity, originality, and energy need encouragement and nurturing.  KidZania Go! has role-play activities that highlight the “RightZ” that KidZania promotes for children:  to be, to know, to share, to create, to care, and to play.

Through diverse hands-on activities like painting and preparing seedlings for planting, KidZania Go! sparks a kid’s inquisitive mind and creativity.  KidZania Go! also provides an opportunity for children to play, to learn, and  to collaborate with new friends this June.

“As we design this avenue for children to role-play careers associated with grown-ups, we give them the opportunity to tap into their imaginations and spark creativity, as they engage in activities they don’t usually experience day to day,” said Maricel Pangilinan-Arenas, State Governor for KidZania Philippines.

“The appeal of role play is universal among kids.  Through the safe, stimulating, and facilitated play environment that KidZania Manila provides, we empower kids as we ignite their imaginations, allow them to learn through personal experience, and make learning more fun,” Arenas adds.

The child-proportioned city of KidZania Manila at the Bonifacio Global City will feature over 100 role-playing activities that include doctors, firefighters, pilots, news anchors, bakers, farmers, journalists, actors, and musicians in realistically themed establishments that are found in the real cities. Dubbed as the ultimate role-playing environment, KidZania lets kids explore different careers, learn economic fundamentals, and get hands-on “experience” on what it takes to run a better world.

Give kids a taste of what role-play at KidZania Manila will be like at the free KidZania Go! pop-up event on June 13 and 14 at the Rockwell Tent at Rockwell Center. Pre-register your kids onsite at the ground floor of PowerPlant Mall at Rockwell Center on June 10 to 12 from 11am to 8pm.  Stay tuned for more announcements and details on KidZania Manila’s Facebook page!
