The 2-story, 75,347-square-foot (7,000-square-meter) indoor facility comes complete with an airport, hospital, banks, vehicles, race track, streets, shops, and economy. Kids can try out a variety of jobs and professions, such as chef, construction worker, firefighter, pilot, police officer, and surgeon. They can earn money (KidZos), open a bank account, learn to drive, and more. Most activities either cost or earn KidZos, which can be used to pay for additional activities or purchase items from the gift shop.
Purchase an economy day pass, or upgrade to a premium pass to get two Fast Track passes (good for skip-the-line access for certain activities). Annual passes are also available. Admission to KidZania Dubai is also included as part of some multiattraction Dubai sightseeing passes.
