KidZania Delhi NCR and Shah Rukh Khan announce a May 2016 opening

Delhi, 29th January, 2016: In a formal announcement today, KidZania, an edutainment theme park with 21 operational centers across 18 countries has announced that its Delhi NCR project located at the Entertainment City, Noida will be open to public in May 2016. This will be the chain’s second facility in India, with Mumbai having been the first to open in the country in 2013. KidZania Delhi NCR will see an investment of approximately Rs. 100 crore for its outlet in the national capital region.

Imagination Edutainment Pvt. Ltd. (IEIPL) has the rights to set up KidZania centers across India. IEIPL is jointly owned by Singapore-based KidZ Inc., and actor Shah Rukh Khan.

KidZania Delhi NCR is a standalone structure spanning 96,000 sq. ft across 3 floors. It will emulate the workings of a real city but built to scale for children with paved roads, battery-operated vehicles, buildings, a functioning economy and its own currency. The center also has a fuselage of a real Airbus A320-200 protruding out of the façade of the building. Kids get to role-play pilots and learn how to fly on flight simulators placed inside the plane.

KidZania Delhi NCR will educate children through the 90+ role-playing activities based on replicas of real-world industries and services including entertainment, airline, automobile, retail, restaurants, factories and other private and public services. Children can take on various roles including that of a pilot, surgeon, detective, chef, candy-maker, fireman, television producer, radio jockey, mechanic and others. These activities have been designed by educators to help develop psychomotor, cognitive and social skills amongst children.

The press conference was hosted by kids in role-play – and to commemorate the occasion they hoisted the KidZania Flag with Shah Rukh Khan.

Mr. Shah Rukh Khan, one of the shareholders of KidZania India further commented, “I am extremely excited about KidZania Delhi NCR. This will be a larger project than our first centre in Mumbai. I am passionate about my association with KidZania because as a father I understand the importance of empowering children at a young age to be able to manage their world better, and as an actor the power of making someone happy by entertaining them. KidZania brings fun and learning together; as India is a country of young people what better way to educate them to be good citizens.”
