There’s a theme park that puts kids to work. Instead of offering thrill rides, KidZania lets children experience being a responsible adult.  At locations in over 20 different countries, kids ages 4-14 can walk the paved streets of a kid city, work in a variety of jobs, and use their earnings to buy trinkets in the gift shop or rent electric versions of luxury cars.
