After our previous disastrous visit to Kidzania, I wasn’t about to go back there for at least another couple of years but Aristotle’s school had planned a field trip there (kids these days are so lucky!) and they needed parent helpers – so off we went…
If I had feared another disaster on my hands, I was suitably delighted that it went a lot smoother this time. We managed to try out the following activities:
Being one of the popular features of Kidzania, it was a bit of a wait before they could get into the action. Kidzania staff kept the kids busy with colouring activities, photo opportunities with the Kidzania mascot, and general chatter. After a 30 minute wait, we discovered that the hoses were down and the kids wouldn’t be able to put out the fire on the burning building. Thankfully, the Kidzanian staff were prepared with an alternative scenario where the kids had to save the cat instead. The children were none the wiser and were proud to have saved the cat.
After learning about power and electricity, our little engineers headed out on an emergency to fix a “broken lightbulb”.
Water Bottling Factory
After lunch, the boys went through the process of bottling clean water and left the factory with a bottle of their very own bottled water.
I guess Aristotle is just the sort of child that needs to visit a new activity a few times before he can get right into it. He enjoyed this second trip so much he wants to go back there again. Well, we’ll see…
