Kidzania’s Longest Aircraft In The Region Arrives In Doha

KidZania, an award-winning ‘edutainment’ concept set to open in Doha in the first quarter of 2018, and it has unveiled its longest aircraft at Aspire Park.

The Boeing 737-500 is a part of KidZania’s aviation section. Qatar Entertainment (Tasali), a joint venture of Aspire Zone Foundation (49%) and Sharaka Holdings (51%), holds the licence for KidZania.

“KidZania brings education and entertainment together to strategically teach children values through programmes prepared to deliver hands-on experience, which could not be easily replicated and absorbed in a traditional classroom,” Tasali board member Sheikh Nasser bin Abdulrahman al-Thani said at the launch yesterday.

This edutainment concept allows children between the age of four and fourteen to role play with real-life brands, products, services and professions: from firefighters to a pizza maker, and radio personality to airline pilot, among others.

Children will also have the chance to experience flying the Airbus A380 aircraft with access to six state-of-the-art simulators. They can also role play as cabin crews, learning how to ensure the well-being of their passengers onboard.

Designed to replicate a city that is built for children, complete with buildings, streets, vehicles and a functioning economy, KidZania also aims to empower children in each activity by helping them understand how society functions.

Children can learn how to finance, work with a team, taking on a profession and how to be independent, which are all real-life skills.

Since it opened in 1999, KidZania now has 24 locations in 19 countries and is rapidly growing globally.
