Yes! It is now official! You can turn time back without a time machine! My wish finally came true. I was given a pair of review tickets to KidZania adults evening. A chance to be a child again YOURSELF, who would say no?

Ok, enough of caps, but I was so excited to go and review KidZania myself, as I really loved it when I went with my child. But as one of the rules is that adults are not allowed you wish you would be having fun too. Finally, KidZania heard us and gave  us an opportunity to unleash our inner child. I was looking forward to this event, since I heard of it and it was so worth it! Off we went to KidZania with my friend. It was her first time as an adult there too. We were welcomed and went through airport security to KidZania. 20151217_190810_resized (2)A big British Airways plane makes you realise that you are stepping indeed to another country from this airport. We were also welcomed by Christmas Carols and of course we had a go at “Let it go”.  We left our coats and bags at the check in desks, we are glad KidZania listened to our previous comments and it was £1 an item to leave. So we were light and ready to explore. We were also handed the map and Kidzos (KidZania money to start us off).

Whole of KidZania is decorated with Christmas lights, trees and gives it a really nice festive vibe. The stuff are young and energetic. When we entered they were dancing and it is difficult not to join in of course. First activity we tried was hairdressers, we made some nice hairstyles and got our first salary there. Then we went to the Art Academy and painted some pictures ourselves. Not being disturbed by a little one and not getting any paint on ourselves.  We left our pictures to dry and left for next activity.

We all had dreams of becoming somebody when we were kids. One of my dreams was to become a doctor. So there I was in KidZania Hospital being a surgeon. We have actually made an organ transplant and it was really exciting. At that moment I realised these type of adult events are quite good for people like me, who dreamt of several professions and this is a perfect opportunity to try it. After performing a successful operation and getting paid for it, we went to try yet another occupation we both wanted to become – a pilot!

The pilot experience is one of the must try ones in KidZania I would say. The real simulators and clear instructions will et you feel how pilots land the aeroplanes at Heathrow Airport. I am glad to report that we have landed our plane without a crash and taxied it to the right gate. Phew…

After such serious occupations we needed to reward ourselves, so we decided to try ice-cream making workshop with real machinery. It was fun and I see it would encourage kids to ask us adults to make healthier version at home. We also had a go at Innocent smoothie making workshop and got our smoothies as a reward. We also worked at City Clock. We sounded Jingle bells with bells and made sure KidZania knew it was 9p.m. ringing the big clock’s bell nine times.

We enjoyed being paramedics, receiving a training and actually using it in a make-do incident in the city of KidZania.  After that we had a go at being fire fighters. I really liked that they explain to children how to stay safe and not to get burns or how to act in case of an emergency. We also were police and had to find suspicious bags,they were well hidden.  I will make sure my children try to use all of the emergency services in KidZania, as it is learning through play.

Once we were hungry we had some hot food and drinks, I found the price acceptable and it gave us enough boost to keep playing- yes, playing! We went on to become reporters, we had to question people and write an article at the HQ of KidZania newspaper.It was then printed out and given to us as a memorabilia. Being inspired from this we went and tried to work at a radio. And it was so much fun, you get to hear the latest music, you get to announce it and it was just such a great ambience. After trying all these activities our time has come to end. Four hours were gone very quickly. We will be coming back to try the activities we did not have enough time to try to.

All in all we came out so happy and positively charged. I definately recommend to try KidZania Adults event.

If you ever had dreams as a child, KidZania Adult event is a perfect opportunity to see how it would feel if they came true!
