Weekends are for Family at KidZania Manila

Thursday, October 06, 2016

     I've been to KidZania thrice and the feeling is always awesome. I also get to learn while waiting for Kenzo outside the play area. There were times that I want to join the misters and misses in the role play activity because it's really fun and exciting inside the rooms.

     Great news as big adventure knocks on the doors of KidZania Manila, as moms, dads, siblings, and grandparents embrace the fun and learning with “Weekends are for Family.” See schedule of activities for the month of October below :)

     Since the program started in August, Saturdays and Sundays hit a new level of excitement as the play city rolls out various fun activities. Families enjoyed a special performance by the cast of Repertory Philippines’ Hansel and Gretel, which delighted the young and young-at-heart alike. Those who missed this treat should not worry, as the talented thespians will be back to present a sneak preview of the well-loved book, A Little Princess on October 22, 5:30 p.m. at the Main Square. Families will also get to enjoy a meet-and-greet session with the stars of the play right after.

     The all-new “Weekends are for Family” program aims to get everyone involved trying roles at select establishments at the play city. Side-by-side, family members can unleash their inner dreamers and enjoy the various jobs in KidZania Manila. Misters and misses have to decide which way they’re going, with fun set out in all directions. They can assist mom and dad, grandpa and grandma in exploring job openings in the play city.

     The play city also played host to a vibrant mix of performers from the G-Force, Halili-Cruz School of Ballet, UP Street Dance Club, 9 Works Theatrical (with actors George Schulze, Becca Coates, and Mitzie Lao), and the talented finalists of The Voice Kids (Season 3).

     While the future artists at KidZania Manila busied themselves with their fellow creatives, the up-and-coming scientists tested their theories with Mad Science Philippines. Curious misters and misses used the Main Square as an open laboratory to cook up their next experiment.
