WWE® and KidZania London Launch New Fan Experience
KidZania London and WWE today announce the launch of the first-ever WWE Academy, an exciting new activity designed to entertain young WWE fans in the UK. Officially opened by WWE Superstars™ Finn Bálor™ and Sasha Banks™, WWE Academy is a fully-branded experiential space within the city of KidZania London, where children can transform into a WWE Superstar.
Promoting creative thinking and imagination, kids can become their favourite WWE Superstars, including John Cena™, Roman Reigns™, Bayley™, Sasha Banks and Finn Bálor. With the help of a KidZania referee, kids can choose from a range of WWE props and ring gear, practice their own catchphrases, develop a persona, and create a promo video.
“We are thrilled to be launching the new WWE Academy for kids,” said Eddie Kemsley, CEO KidZania London. “So many of our young visitors are huge fans of WWE and we can now offer them the chance to transform themselves into their favourite Superstars.”
“WWE is a family-friendly brand, and now children in the UK have a unique opportunity to show their passion with the first-ever WWE Academy,” said Tracey Keenan, Vice President & General Manager, WWE UK & Ireland. “This unique partnership is another way for us to connect the next generation of WWE fans with their favorite Superstars.”
The activity joins a wide range of ‘careers’ at the ‘indoor city run by kids’ designed to both entertain and educate children, at Kidzania, located inside Westfield London.
