idZania has announced the re-opening of a number of its facilities. After closing its premises in March over the coronavirus pandemic, KidZania Seoul and KidZania Busan

welcomed visitors once again on 6 April. KidZania Tokyo and KidZania Koshien reopened its doors to

Although this action was not mandated by the local government, KidZania Japan took this decision to show its empathy and solidarity with its visitors, suppliers and team. In the Middle East, KidZania Jeddah closed on 9

March following the directives of authorities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Now, the national curfew in this country has been lifted along with the suspension of entertainment activities.

In the same region, KidZania Cairo voluntarily closed its doors on

16 March. As the number of COVID-19 continues to decrease and the national curfew has been lifted, entertainment activities in Cairo were allowed to resume their operations with 25% of their capacity starting this
