ISTANBUL, Turkey. KidZania Journal. December 5, 2014. (English). –KidZania Istanbul, located within the Akasya Acıbadem Mall, has been awarded the best indoor themed entertainment center of the year under the scope of “Shining Star Awards 2014-Entertainment Awards”, the only competition of the entertainment sector in Turkey.
The success of KidZania Istanbul, which opened in March 2014 inside the Akasya Acıbadem Mall, has been crowned with the “Shining Star Awards 2014-Entertainment Awards” organized within the framework of Atrax Fair activities. A pioneer of the edutainment sector, KidZania provides the opportunity to experience more than 90 jobs to kids between the ages of 4 and 14 in its mini-city with an area of approximately 10,000 sqm. In addition to a wide range of occupations including firefighter, pizza chef, manufacturing factories and secret agents, kids can also experience being a pilot in a flight simulator and get paid in kidZos, the currency of KidZania, for the jobs they do and thus get an idea of the real business world.
Lara Sayınsoy, Governor of KidZania Turkey, said “We’re really excited that KidZania Istanbul has been recognized as the most successful indoor themed entertainment center of the year. It is hugely motivating for us to get an award like this though KidZania Istanbul opened less than a year ago. It is wonderful to see that we are contributing to the sector. We are so thrilled to play an important part in the future of our children, who are most important to us.”
