Shah Rukh Khan launches KidZania in Noida
Delhi welcomed a new fun zone for kids as KidZania, an edutainment theme park in Entertainment City, Noida, was launched on Friday. Much to the glee of fans and kids at the event, Shah Rukh Khan turned up for the announcement and kicked off the proceedings by hoisting the Kidzania flag. The event was hosted by kids in costume, who showed the diverse options of fun activities that kids would have at the park when it is opened to the public in May. Shah Rukh Khan said, "I had seen this concept overseas several years ago when I went to a theme park with my kids. I always wanted to have something like this in India too. This concept has the potential to bridge the existing gap in edu-entertainment in the country."
Spread over 96,000 sqft, the park offers over 90 activities to the children of NCR. Sanjeev Kumar, director and CEO, KidZania India, said, "Having this theme park reach more cities is one step further in fulfilling the ambition we have in India. We are delighted to have set foot in NCR. We hope to host families not just from Delhi, Gurgaon and Noida, but also neighbouring cities."
Rajan Narula, MD, Entertainment City, Noida, said, "This will help in the overall development of Entertainment City. We believe that this will add another feather in our cap. Hopefully, we should be able to make the destination even bigger and more attractive. The one thing which was missing from our kitty was an indoor air-conditioned entertainment zone for kids and this theme park fills that gap."
