Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, July 22) — KidZania Manila, an amusement facility owned by ABS-CBN Corporation, is also closing down by end of August after months of shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After 5 years of providing a learning experience for children, Play Innovations, Inc. has decided to cease the operations of KidZania Manila effective August 31, 2020,” the establishment announced in a statement on Wednesday. Play Innovations, Inc. is a subsidiary of ABS-CBN.

The media giant earlier said a number of its workers will lose their jobs on August 31 as the network stays off-air without a congressional franchise. 

KidZania explained that the ban on mass gathering and stay-at-home rule for children gave them no choice but to “close the play city’s doors permanently.”

The center assured that they will provide their employees with severance pay as mandated by law as well as job placement programs.

The management of the play space expressed gratitude for the trust of its industry partners, schools and families over the last five years.
