DOHA, Qatar. KidZania Journal. January 17, 2017. –KidZania, the world’s fastest growing award-winning edutainment concept, is set to launch in the first quarter of 2018 in Doha. The launch will also include the Boeing 737-500 aircraft, perfectly complementing the aviation section at KidZania.
KidZania Doha will provide a unique educational and entertainment experience in Qatar, where children will be able to role-play in a replication of the real life working environment, with a vast variety of professions to trial. KidZania is the world’s fastest growing family entertainment brand, with KidZania Doha expecting to welcome over 300,000 visitors year-on-year.
Ric Fearnett –Governor, KidZania Doha– said:
“This year guarantees to be an exceptional period for KidZania Doha as it gears up to the launch. It is a key milestone for KidZania as it continues to expand its metropolises across the world in the quest to prepare and inspire the children of tomorrow with key learning tools to enable them to learn about the real working environment.”
The educational environment at KidZania allows children between the ages of four and fourteen to role-play the functionalities of working life by combining inspiration, fun and learning. The edutainment facility offers children the opportunity to play ‘adult jobs’ in up to 60 pretend roles including being a doctor, dentist, engineer and pilot. KidZania is designed to replicate a city that is built for children, complete with buildings, streets, vehicles and a functioning economy. The ultra-realistic experience is designed to empower children through each activity and learn a variety of things such as: how society functions, how to finance, how to work with a team, taking on a profession and how to be independent, which are all real life skills.

Children will also be able to experience flying the A380 aircraft with access to 6 state-of-the-art simulators, as well as role play cabin crew, learning how to ensure the well-being of their passengers onboard.
Sheikh Nasser Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani –Tasali Board Member– commented:
“KidZania brings education and entertainment together to strategically teach children values through programmes prepared to deliver hands-on experience which could not be easily replicated and absorbed in a traditional classroom. The concept is in line with the Qatar National Vision 2030 to build a sustainable and harmonised society as KidZania prepares the children of tomorrow, enabling the children in Qatar to fully embrace and learn about real working life and how the economy works.”
