Sentosa Island to house KidZania Singapore

THEMED Attractions Malaysia will open a KidZania indoor theme park on Singapore’s Sentosa Island by 2014.

Originally from Mexico, KidZania theme parks allow children aged 4 – 14 to learn about the world of adult occupations by role-playing different professions.

“With growth potential of family tourism in the region, we consider this to be an excellent investment opportunity for Themed Attractions in addition to our other ongoing family tourism projects in Kuala Lumpur and Johor, Malaysia,” said Ahmad Burhanuddin, managing director & CEO, Themed Attractions and Resorts Malaysia.

Sentosa Development Corporation will develop an 11,500m2 Family Entertainment Centre at Palawan Beach to house KidZania Singapore. Scheduled for completion in 2014, the centre will be directly linked to the Sentosa Express monorail, the beach carpark and a new arrival plaza for coaches.

Mike Barclay, CEO, Sentosa Development Corporation, said: “This leisure cluster by the beach is being rejuvenated into a destination for families with young children. KidZania Singapore will complement the outdoor fun of Palawan Beach and Port of Lost Wonder.”

Themed Attractions currently manages KidZania Kuala Lumpur, which opened in February, and will operate KidZania Singapore through its joint venture with Boustead Holdings via Rakan Riang.

The theme park in Singapore will be the third KidZania in South-east Asia, with other existing KidZanias in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.
