KidZania guests return time and time again, which has fueled global growth and helped make KidZania an instant success in each new market. Children who visit KidZania feel good about themselves, their new experiences, and their successes, and they want to come back again and again to continue the fun.

KidZania employs a state-of-the-art security system, whereby each visitor that enters KidZania will be given a unique security bracelet, allowing KidZania staff to track and locate each individual child throughout the city. The security bracelets are also assigned in groups as they come in, so a child cannot exit KidZania if an adult or the whole party is not present. This safety aspect ensures parents that their children are kept safe at all times.

Additionally, all our establishments are built in such a way that parents can observe their children participating in the various activities within the establishment via glass walls. However, we usually encourage children to be independent within KidZania; hence, parents can relax in the parent’s lounge equipped with Wi-Fi and a movie room while they wait for their children.
