Kidzmondo theme park set to open in Doha in December

Developer UrbaCon says edutainment city will launch at the Mall of Qatar before the end of 2016

Kidzmondo theme park set to open in Doha in December

KidzMondo Doha, a miniature edutainment city in Qatar, will welcome the visitors at the Mall of Qatar in December, it has been announced.

The central idea of KidzMondo is to develop a small-scale city built for and ruled by children between the ages of 2 to 14. The miniature city has its own economy and even uses its own currency called Kidlar.

Qatar-based UrbaCon's CEO Moataz al-Khayyat said: "It is the first and only City of Education and Entertainment in Qatar where up to 800 children can play in a safe environment under the guidance of 200 trained expert staff, so it is really a new dimension to the understanding of edutainment."

Children will be able to play all the traditional roles such as firemen, bankers, doctors, pilots, actors, beauticians and earn salaries in KidzMondo's currency that they can spend in the KidzMondo stores, he added

KidzMondo theme parks are located in several countries including Lebanon, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia with plans to launch in the UAE.

In April, KidzMondo and Aldar Properties announced plans to open the first KidzMondo theme park at The Mall at World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi (WTCAD).

The UAE's first KidzMondo is scheduled to open during the first quarter of 2017.
