KidZania Cairo offers kids a variety of fun and interesting role-playing activities in a realistic city setting. Job activities such as doctor, firefighter, chef, or flight attendant are associated with real-world brands, allowing kids to create and learn with realistic results.

Kids in Grownup Roles
There are over 100 activities waiting for kids at KidZania Cairo. Each establishment offers activities with a range of difficulty levels to meet the abilities and interests of each kid. Pilots fly airplanes, Radio Station announcers read the news, police officers keep the city safe, chefs make tasty food. KidZania Cairo is a fun world of grownup role-play!

A Real Kid-Sized City!
KidZania is a city just for kids, complete with a hospital, fire station, beauty salon, bank, radio station and pizza shop. At two-thirds of their actual size, all facilities are designed to be just the right size for kids. After learning about a job they have chosen and being given a specific task, kids change into a real uniform and start working!

Work, Earn, Play!
Kids are paid for their work in KidZos, the official currency of KidZania. Recognized at every KidZania location throughout the world, KidZos are used to buy products and services. The more you work, the more you earn, the more you can play!


KidZania Economy

KidZania has its own currency: bank notes called “kidZos” and coins called “Zents”. KidZania citizens and tourists can use this money along with their debit card, known as e-kidZos, to pay for products and services in different locations inside the great nation of KidZania. Similarly, the citizens are paid for their work in kidZos as part of the supply and demand of the economy

Every time you get to KidZania will receive a check for 50 kidZos. Once inside, you must visit the bank and change your check for cash to purchase goods and products. For example, contract services as renting a car, get your hair done in the salon, heal a wound in the hospital or take classes or buy rappelling favorite items in the department store in KidZania. If you spend all kidZos or you want more, you can not buy with real money, you should seek employment and work for example as a firefighter, dentist, model, stylist or builder, among many trades and professions that exist within kidZos. There are places where you decide whether to spend or win kidZos.

For example, in the fire station can only earn money, while at the pizza shop you can only spend it. However, there are many places where you can do both, as in the hospital, where you can be a doctor and earn money or be patient and pay for you to attend. The prices of goods and products or services are different in each facility or activity. These rates may vary depending on the popularity of each in relation to others.

In KidZania we have a banking system itself where you can save and earn interest, get a debit card and do business in the bank branch or in the ATMs in the city.

You can open your personal savings account at any time of day during your stay in the city to deposit and save the money you've earned your work. When you open your savings account will receive a debit card that must be customized with your name and signature. With it you can check your balance or make withdrawals at the bank branch or any of the ATMs. And if you visit us for the second time and already have your debit card you deposited the 50 kidZos to your account, which you can get cash in the bank branch or ATM.
