KidZania Singapore will not reopen after Coronavirus shutdown
After four years of operations, ‘edu-tainment’ attraction KidZania Singapore will not be reopening upon the lifting of Singapore’s ‘circuit breaker’ anti-Coronavirus measures and other social restrictions.
In a Facebook post yesterday (16th June), the company did not advise why the Sentosa Island attraction will not be reopening, merely stating "we've had the pleasure of being here for four years. We've had the joy of entertaining and educating one million kids.
"We thank you for joining and helping us build a billion memories. ZanK-U and good-bye," it said, using a term it often uses - a play on "thank you" and "KidZania" - to express its appreciation.
Singapore enters the second phase of its reopening after the circuit breaker period on Friday, but tourist attractions, both indoor and outdoor, have still not been given the green light to reopen.
KidZania attractions give children a taste of different careers such as firefighting, window washing, medicine and journalism through role-playing in an interactive mini-city.
As reported by The Straits Times, KidZania Singapore was among a number of tourist attractions that rolled out digital initiatives earlier this year in response to the circuit breaker period. The company launched a social media content series called #KidZaniaAtHome in April, when it celebrated its fourth year of operation.
The KidZania brand is an international franchise with 29 facilities in 22 countries worldwide according to its website, including locations such as Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all its facilities are currently closed to the public except for those in South Korea and Japan.
