Indonesia’s first outpost of the children’s edutainment concept that’s taken the world by storm, KidZania Jakarta occupies over 80,000 square feet (7,500 square meters) of space in South Jakarta. Younger kids will thrill to the opportunity to role-play careers from firefighter and doctor to beauty therapist in a miniature model city.
KidZania Jakarta is open to kids from toddler age to age 16, but children in the elementary-school range will enjoy the activities the most. Ticket prices vary by age and day of the week but are at the high end for Jakarta attractions. With the exception of families whose children have special needs, parents are not allowed in the model city area; trained workers supervise all activities. RFID security bracelets ensure both adults’ and children’s whereabouts can be traced at all times.
Things to Know Before You Go
KidZania Jakarta is a great choice for families with younger children.
The attraction provides an inclusive environment for children with special needs.
KidZania Jakarta has wheelchairs available on-site and elevator access.
How to Get There
KidZania Jakarta is located within the Pacific Place mixed-use development in South Jakarta, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) south of the Indonesia National Monument (Monas). It’s three minutes’ walk from the Istora Mandiri stop on Jakarta’s limited MRT subway system and four stops from Blok M on TransJakarta bus route Corridor 1 (get off at Polda Metro Jaya). Many travelers will find it easier to join a tour or book a private driver.
When to Get There
KidZania Jakarta operates two daily sessions seven days a week, the first from morning until after lunch, and the second from early afternoon until evening. Excluding public holidays, ticket prices are most affordable and lines are shorter Monday through Thursday. Arrive at the start of a session for maximum value.
What Is KidZania?
There are over 20 KidZania model cities all around the world. Built to two-thirds scale, they aim to teach children about working life and the economy by providing fun role-play activities in environments as diverse as airports, hospitals, and banks. Kids earn a currency called KidZos, which they can spend on food, gifts, or fun activities.
