Singapore – Family entertainment company KidZania has announced the first six of 30-plus industry partners to be part of its educational and entertainment theme park. The partners are Maybank, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, Yakult, Canon and The Soup Spoon. 

Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific will create a Discovery Kids studio within the park, where children will experience the behind-the-scenes work that goes into being a Discovery Channel filmmaker.

KidZania will not have any rides. Instead, it will features real-world establishments (bank, university, fire station, radio station) and career choices (pilot, surgeon, fashion designer) to help children develop real life skills.
