VISIT KIDZANIA LONDON FOR AN EGG-CELLENT EASTER HOLIDAY WITH NIKE, WWE AND NINTENDO ACTIVITIES
Prizes include a trip to Nike’s USA headquarters and a Nintendo Switch!
Kids will be egg-static for events taking place at KidZania London – the indoor city run by kids at Westfield London, Shepherd’s Bush – this Easter. New activities include a top-secret creative pop-up with Nike; an action packed series of events from WWE to celebrate WrestleMania 35; and an egg-stra special egg hunt with Nintendo’s Yoshi to coincide with the launch of new game, Yoshi’s Crafted Word.
Nike’s Department of Unimaginable at KidZania (27 March – 5 May)
For a limited time only, Nike will be running a creative pop-up in partnership with KidZania London. The new activity running from the 27 March – 5 May comes from Nike’s Department of Unimaginable (D.O.U), a top-secret division of Nike that explores the really out-there ideas to innovate the next big thing.
D.O.U agents have set up a portable lab in KidZania to gather ideas from the boldest and brightest kids who want to help shape the future of Nike Air. The experience is for kids aged 8-14 to learn about how Nike invents, engineers, and designs Air Max. Kids can create their own designs for a chance to win a trip for themselves and a parent or guardian to Nike HQ in Portland, USA.
WWE fans unite for WrestleMania 35 (30 March – 22 April)
Starting Saturday 30 March – Monday 22 April 2019, KidZania London is calling all WWE fans to come on down to explore a fun-packed series to celebrate WrestleMania 35 this Easter. Gearing up to the broadcast of WrestleMania 35 on Sunday 7 April, which airs on the WWE Network, KidZania will encourage young performers to design and create their own WrestleMania Superstar and pose in the ring at the WWE Academy.
Across the rest of the city, full coverage of the WrestleMania activities will be making headlines at the Global Radio Studio and KidZania’s very own Metro Newspaper. Over in the KidZania theatre, WWE fans will have the opportunity to see what it takes to create a live show, experimenting with lighting, sound, costume and performance. Other activities include a WWE themed quiz, parcel delivery which sees kids courier parcels all over the city, a supermarket experience, and a life size WWE Elite action figure photo booth
Eggs marks the spot! Yoshi’s Easter Egg Hunt (8 April – 14 April)
The hunt is on! To celebrate the launch of Yoshi’s Crafted World on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo has teamed up with KidZania London this Easter holiday for an exclusive Easter Egg Hunt, open Monday 8 April – Sunday 14 April.
Yoshi’s Crafted World, a new game featuring beloved Nintendo characters, will also be available to try out during the Easter Egg Hunt. Participants who egg-cel and complete the hunt will receive 10 kidZo’s and a very special Yoshi’s Easter Egg Hunt certification. And that’s not all yolks, those who take part will also be in with a chance to win a Nintendo Switch, a copy of Yoshi’s Crafted World, a Nintendo Switch Online 12 month Family Membership and a KidZania family ticket.
Become an energy champion with Shell
Head over to the Main Square to find one of KidZania London’s newest and most ambitious establishments, and the only energy partner in the city. Energy Champions at the Shell Forecourt and Energy Lab will learn how to fuel cars, both petrol and electric, and keep them running at their best. Working with real cars on the forecourt, the young scientists will then head to the lab to learn about biofuels, before mixing their own fuel to power race cars around the track in the final challenge!
All activities have been designed to empower and entertain kids, and developed to teach them essential life skills including financial literacy, teamwork and independence. If your grandchild has ever dreamt of becoming a pilot, a firefighter or the next award-winning actor, watch the excitement on their faces as they try out real life activities! The concept effectively gives them their first taste of independence and gets kids thinking about what they might want to be in the future.
