KidZania, based at Fourways Mall, has been closed indefinitely, with the franchise being unsure about the reopening date under the current restrictions and social distancing requirements.
KidZania has been described as a safe, unique and interactive city built entirely for children, which incorporates learning about different educational topics with fun activities. The company opened its Johannesburg branch at Fourways Mall in 2019, which has been closed since March 2020.
KidZania was required to close in accordance with the nationwide lockdown and restrictions, and has yet to open, despite several restrictions being eased.
A Fourways Mall customer service consultant revealed to Paulton on Monday, 14 December 2020, that there are currently no plans to reopen KidZania in 2020 or early 2021, as children’s activities are limited to the festive season offering currently available at the mall.
Up until January 2021, children are able to visit Santa Land to meet Santa Claus and visit his home, which is situated at the centre court on the lower level.
