Abu Dhabi’s Aldar Properties PJSC and Emaar Entertainment have partnered to bring the first KidZania to the UAE capital at Yas Mall.
As a unique children’s edutainment attraction, KidZania – spanning 88265 sqft and scheduled to open in 2018 – will reinforce Yas Island’s position as a leading entertainment hub, for which Aldar is the master developer.
“Yas Mall is a flagship location for us, and we remain dedicated to ensuring that the combination of brands, activities and entertainment on offer is world class, sustainable and reflect the high standards we set for the mall,” says Jassim Busaibe, chief asset management officer, Aldar. “Our partnership with Emaar Entertainment to bring the first KidZania to the UAE capital will provide exciting and unique experiences to all members of the family, whether they are residents or tourists.”
“Since the introduction of KidZania at The Dubai Mall, this dedicated children’s city has become the must-visit leisure and learning destination for young ones. The opportunity to learn real-life professional skills drives their all-round development and delights families,” adds Emaar Entertainment CEO Maitha Al Dossari.
“The addition of KidZania at Yas Mall marks our commitment to work with master-developers such as Aldar to deliver our exceptional experiences to benefit children and families across the nation. This underlines the strong credentials that we have set for KidZania in the region and our focus on promoting strategic partnerships that add value for our stakeholders,” she continues.
KidZania at Yas Mall will complement the exciting mix of attractions that Yas Island offers, including Yas Marina Circuit, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Water World, luxury hotels and the recently announced Warner Bros in addition to World Abu Dhabi theme park as well as SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, which is expected to open on the island in 2022.
