In the KidZania city, there are child-sized destinations, such as a hospital, police station, supermarket, radio station and theater. Kids can role-play in realistic simulations, such as fighting fires, piloting airplanes, acting in plays, designing robots, performing surgery and going on secret missions. Each KidZania is tailored to the city in which it’s located, complete with buildings, paved streets, vehicles and an economy fueled by a currency called KidZos. The Frisco location is the first in the U.S.
