The parenting community in Singapore is buzzing with excitement these days over two upcoming attractions for kids: Kidzania Singapore and Kids Stop at Singapore Science Centre.
Kidzania is an international chain of entertainment complexes that focuses on realistic role play for kids. In the past, Singaporeans travelled to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok to visit Kidzania. But very soon (estimated 2015) we will have our very own Kidzania at Sentosa!!
To stay up to date with the latest information, visit Kidzania Singapore’s official website.
Update: Cheekiemonkie has some exciting updates about Kidzania Singapore! It seems Kidzania Singapore is going to have a Singaporean twist, with job roles such as bak kwa seller?? Hop over to Cheekiemonkie blog to read more!
Also, if you have been to Kidzania in other countries, and you have the leftover Kidzania money from there, hang on to them. I heard that Kidzania currency is internationally accepted?? Which means your kids’ pay for say Kuala Lumpur Kidzania / Bangkok Kidzanian etc can be used at Singapore’s Kidzania when it opens! (PS: This is a hearsay.)
If 2015 is too long a wait for you, KIV Kids STOP at Singapore Science Centre which will be opening on 6 June 2014.
It is targeted at children aged 18 months to 8 years old and will be a 3000 sqm facility to allow children to learn Science through interactive play. There will be four zones at Kids STOP:
- Imagine (for role-playing)
- Experience (for hands-on experiments)
- Discover (for Science and Technology interactive exhibits)
- Dream (a play area featuring a 9m high play structure and a 7m long slide)
Sale of membership for Kids STOP has begun. Usual price for membership is $30 per year, which includes admission for one child and one adult. However, if you sign up before 31 May 2014, you pay $30 for two-year membership! To stay up to date with the latest information, visit Kids Stop’s official website.
