KidZania has become popular in other countries over the past few years, and Frisco is home to the first KidZania franchise in the entire United States.

At KidZania, children can ride in a fire truck, watch themselves give an on-camera weather report, and learn the basics of attending to physical needs as a first responder. As they complete each task, they will receive money that they can use to pay for certain experiences or buy prizes in the KidZania gift shop. KidZania also has a play area specifically for babies and toddlers. You’ll find KidZania inside Stonebriar Mall.
