Top Tips

  • To avoid all hassles and also to bag maximum savings, make sure that you purchase your tickets in advance through a reliable service provider.
  • Try to come here in the mornings as the place gets crowded later, especially on weekends and holidays.
  • Before you come here, make detailed research to plan your visit here. This is particularly a must for first-timers, as it may sometimes appear to be a bit overwhelming for both parents and children to comprehend how the whole things work here.
  • If you’re traveling here for the first time or have only limited time, it’s impossible for your little ones to experience all activities in a single day. So let them choose their favorite one or two activities and have absolute fun.
  • Before check-in, an RFID security bracelet is given to both kids and adults joining them which ensures that your kid(s) won’t leave the facility without you.
  • Prior to participating in any activity, encourage your kids to check out the signage (available both in Arabic and English) that mentions everything about a particular activity, from age criteria and a number of children allowed in a slot to whether they will earn or have to pay KidZos.
  • As your kids are solely responsible for their possessions, it’s advisable for them to carry their stuff including KidZos, passes, etc in a compact purse or a convenient crossbody bag.
  • For your visit here, it’s always good to be joined by a friend and this is applicable for both you and your kids. While this helps to save your boredom off, the company of a familiar face will put your kids at more ease.
  • For best value, opt for a combo pass which not only includes a visit to KidZania but also other attractions in the vicinity, like Play DXB (formerly known as VR Park Dubai), Ekart Zabeel, Dubai Ice Rink, Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, and Burj Khalifa.
