At the check-in desk you and your kids are given wrist trackers to wear. These trackers are scanned when your kids start and finish an experience. If you want to find out where they are you simply scan your tracker at one of the locations around the city and it'll tell you where your child last scanned in at. You are also given 50 kidZos per child. KidZos are used to pay for certain experiences inside the city. Some experiences are jobs which pay your child in Kidzos, for example working the supermarket tills pays you 8 kidZos per 10minute shift, and some are longer 'training' experiences which you have to pay to do, these include activities such like making chocolate, dance workshops and veterinary training.
Of course the kids wanted to do different experiences so we had to split up. 7yr old E was quick off the mark and swiftly completed some jobs making beds in the hotel and working in the A&E to earn herself some kidZos to spend trying her hand as a wrestler! Little I wanted to work in the Supermarket checkouts first so she queued for that only for the shop to be shut temporarily as a mouse was on the loose! The staff handled it really well, paying everyone for their shift and giving our extension vouchers so you could enter an extra experience after your time in the city ended. She then hopped on the tour bus for a trip around the city.
Overall we had a brilliant experience at Kidzania. Even though it got very busy towards the end of our session the kids got to try loads of different professions and had tons of fun. Just remember you will have to queue for the professions especially if you go at busy times so have that front of mind from the start.
Our entry to KidZania was free for the purposes of this review but all opinions are my own.
