While the temperature might not be that cold outside, KidZania delivers us with the very cool promise of all things wintery and wonderful at the annual KidZania Winter Festival. One might argue that this is impossible, as we live in a desert country, yet the KidZania Winter Festival proved that feeling icy cold, comes easily. Not only have they decked out the entire premises with winter-inspired decorations such as ice, pretty snow flakes, penguins and polar bears, there will be actual snowfall, planned to fall every hour throughout the entire duration of the festival! From fun flash-mobs at The City’s central plaza area, to daily winter shows, parades and many more surprises, the KidZania Winter Festival will surely please! Although the festival already started on the 11th of December, it is scheduled to run until the 24th of this January.
If you think the kids are excited, you should have a chat with anyone here at bazaar. Those of us who are married with children are super happy that we get to act like children again, and those of us who remain single are trying hard to borrow our respective nieces, nephews, friends’ children included, just to get the opportunity to experience KidZania’s Winter Festival! The winter-themed activities are action packed with three exciting programs that are planned over a period of 6 weeks. Last December saw the fun and festive Winter MimeZ event, where children enjoyed learning about the art of miming. If you think that you’ve missed out, then you’re mistaken! The KidZania Winter Festival’s ‘Winter Carnival’ is ongoing until the 24th of January. A dreamy wonderland becomes a true reality with delicious lollipop trees; penguin-tossing contests are simply a part of a whole range of classic carnival games that have been given the KidZania Winter Festival spin. Also planned from the 8th to the 24th of January is the Winter Craftz program, where children will have the chance to unleash their inner artist to create winter-themed arts and crafts.
There’s also a wonderful array of well-themed and suited establishment activities, and you can watch your little ones learn how to bake and frost their very own sweet confections at the Cupcake Factory. The Arts and Crafts area will teach your children how to create adorable crafts of fluffy animals like polar bears, penguins and much more! Your children can also hone their musical talent at the Music Academy, where they will be taught to sing along to cheery, festive songs. They can further their knowledge at Urbano’s House, where winter stories and puppet shows promise an informative yet entertaining time. Make your visit to the Winter Festival a memorable one with a picture, and have your little ones dress up as a penguin or polar bear at the Photo Lab.
For only the additional cost of KD 6, you can make your child’s visit to KidZania even ‘Kooler’ with the ‘FroZen’ Pass! The pass entitles your child to: free face painting or body art session, one delectable Starbucks Hot Chocolate treat, a yummy sweet treat, the choice between a free popcorn, cotton candy, or a healthy steamed corn and finally exclusive access to the Wintertainment show at the Theater.
