These are designed not only for visitors but also for UAE residents, encouraging them to spend quality time with family and friends. Designed to strengthen the involvement of all family members, the Ramadan activities at our leisure assets also reflect our commitment to foster the values of togetherness and generosity that mark the Holy Month.”
KidZania (www.kidzania.ae), the popular children’s city which offers more than 80 professional role-plays for young visitors, has captivating spectacles in store, as it marks Madinat KidZania during the Holy Month. Elegantly adorned to reflect the season, KidZania’s Ramadan activities are also aimed at instilling in young visitors the value of charity and generosity. Visitors can donate their currency, KidZos which will be doubled in value by the KidZania ‘Government’ and donated to underprivileged children, who will be invited to tour the city after Ramadan. The visitors can then spend the KidZos at KidZania’s department store.
Additionally, when a child entry ticket is purchased at KidZania®, visitors receive a discount voucher that can be used for purchasing a child, adult, or toddler entry ticket during their next visit. Other attractions include story-telling sessions that focus on Ramadan and spiritual values, henna designing, and crescent moon and star decoration of the walls and doors using recycled materials. KidZanians can also make mouth-watering traditional desserts at the bakery, create greeting cards, report on Ramadan and Eid for the in-house newspaper, make special jewellery, and take part in special radio shows that discuss Ramadan special events.
Within KidZania, Al Hilal Bank has set up a charity smile stand, where all are welcome to take their photograph using an iPad provided. For every photograph with a smiling face, the banking establishment will donate AED 1 to a designated charity. Visitors will also be provided dates and water to break their fast.
