SINGAPORE: A new attraction for children will be hitting the shores of Sentosa Island. KidZania, a S$90m theme park, will open its doors in early 2015.
It is targeted at those aged 4 to 14.
In KidZania, children will get to learn and have fun, pretending to be police officers, doctors and scientists in a real—life environment.
The children will be given "salaries", which they can spend or save in bank accounts.
To make the experience more authentic, KidZania has partnerships with multi—national and local companies.
Through each activity, children will get a taste of what the adult professions are like.
They can also learn valuable skills such as financial literacy, team work and independence.
KidZania will be the centrepiece of the new multi—million—dollar redevelopment at Palawan Beach.
It will cover an area of more than 80,000 square feet.
