    The kids’ itinerary

  • Dressing children in pharaohs and Cleopatra costumes

  • Pharaoh’s throne

    Once the kids have put on their themed costumes, they can sit on the pharaoh’s throne, feeling like real pharaohs. The guide will talk to the children about the lives and history of the most important pharaohs in Egypt.
    All parents can take pictures of their kids standing on the pharaoh’s throne. Also, the shopping center can hire a photographer and send the pictures to the clients by e-mail/facebook. Pictures can also be printed out and given to the kids as free gifts.

  • The great pyramid of Giza

    #

    Children will enter inside the great pyramid. Ancient paintings and hieroglyphs are featured on the inside walls. Kids will also watch a short movie about the Ancient Egypt.
    The entertainer will offer historical information and will tell the children how the pyramids were built, and what the symbols written on pyramid walls mean. Children will watch a short movie giving them more details about ancient Egypt, while the entertainer will be there for guidance and questions. From here, the kids can enter into the Sarcophagus Chamber.

  • Sarcophagus chamber

    #

    From the main room of the great pyramid, kids can enter into the sarcophagus chamber, a room full of mystery, with fog machines and flamethrowers. A sensor will be activated when entering the room and a voice will guide the children on what they have to do in order to open the treasure room.
    The entertainer will tell the kids about the pharaohs tombs, about the meaning of all paintings and artifacts and will invite them all to follow the voice messages and go to the sand area to find the password for the treasure chamber.

  • Treasures in the sand

    #

    Kids will turn into small archaeologists. They will find hidden artifacts in the sand. Children will dig into the sand to find the artifacts or fragments of broken amphorae which they can put back together just like real archaeologists do. Two fragments won’t fit to the broken amphorae, but they will fit together, revealing the password “Nefertiti”. The entertainer will round the children up by the door of the treasure chamber and will invite them to say the password in a loud voice.

  • Treasure chamber

    # To access the Treasure Chamber, the children have to shout the password in front of the door. In the presence of the children that are gathered around the treasure chamber door, the entertainer will open the door using a hidden remote control, giving kids the impression that they said the correct password. Once they get into the treasure room, they will find many treasures, glowing in the color-changing lights. The entertainer will tell the kids about the pharaoh’s treasures and their significance.

    Magnetic hieroglyphics will be placed on the magnetic panel. The entertainer will tell the children about the mystery of hieroglyphs, about how they were deciphered by Champollion, and what they mean. Several hieroglyphs will be explained to them (a standing man, a tired man etc). A hieroglyphic alphabet will also be displayed here, so all children will be able to see how their name can be written in hieroglyphs.
    A workshop can be organized in this area, where all kids can write their names in hieroglyphs.
