Exciting Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Kidz Bop Experience Coming in August

Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Kidz Bop Experience beginning August 2019

Exciting news from AIC Hotel Group recently – they’ve expanded their partnership with Kidz Bop, the music brand for kids, and will be expanding the Hard Rock Kidz Bop Experience this summer with the launch at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. To celebrate the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya Kidz Bop Experience launch the Kidz Bop Kids will be appearing live at the resort August 12 to 16,  2019 for the Ultimate Kidz Bop Live Fan Experience!

If you live in a household with kids under the age of 15, or if you’ve had kids since 2001, then you are likely familiar with the Kidz Bop Kids. If you are just having children or grandchildren who are entering the ages of 6 or so then you might just be entering the Kidz Bop experience and could be wondering what the heck I am talking about! Well here is what the Kidz Bop Experience at a Hard Rock Hotel is all about. They have been partnered with Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana since 2018, and with that success decided to expand to the Riviera Maya. Here’s the inside scoop on what you and your kids can expect at the Kidz Bop Experience, and let me tell you it is truly immersive!

Here is the vlog from the day of the launch in Punta Cana – imagine taking your kids to Riviera Maya for the launch there!

What's Included and Involved with the Kidz Bop Experience

When it launches in August the Kidz Bop Experience at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is going to be nothing short of amazing! If your kids or grandkids are into the whole pop star thing – like my granddaughter can be (she’s nine and still goes between art, music, singing, dancing, lego, and more), then this could be the adventure that will make memories that last a lifetime!

The Kidz Bop Experience is designed to let kids live their best pop star life – and they have everything to allow them to do just that! 

  • Visit the Pop Star Lounge where kids will have the chance to put together their fashion-forward star-worthy look!
  • Using Instaband kids can come up with their own band name – hopefully, history-making!
  • Head on over to Step It Up and learn some great dance moves!
  • Using Hit Maker kids write their own songs – love to see them write a chart-topper!
  • Over at Creation Station, they can put the final touches on things by designing their next album cover!
  • Don’t miss Paparazzi Shots – kids can get their photos taken on the red carpet!
  • Listening Studio is always open – listen to the Kidz Bop tunes! 
But wait, there's more!

Oh, and the Kidz Bop Team aren’t done yet!

  • Kids will have the opportunity to star in their favourite Kidz Bop music videos
  • Let loose and have fun with Kidz Bop Karaoke!

The experience is rounded out with social events like ice cream socials and sundae parties, pool parties and various pop-up events!

Ultimate Kidz Bop Live Fan Experience - August 12-16, 2019

Expected to be an epic event, the Live Fan Experience from August 12-16, 2019 is going to feature five days of incredible events for kids onsite at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya! The celebration will bring the Kidz Bop World Tour to Riviera Maya for a concert for all resort guests on August 14!

What kind of events and activities might one expect? Well, think A-list Hollywood-Style party scaled down for kids. So, while pretty much anything goes, it will be geared exclusively to kids! Kids food – unicorn and rainbow cakes, hamburgers, hot dogs, gourmet ice cream, candy, sodas, and more! If you can dream what the ultimate party would be like when you were that age, times it by two or three – then you have this event!

For activities, guarantee at least one Vegas-style DJ hosted pool party with that ever-popular foam gun. Heck – even I get in there and dance like I’m a teenager again when that gun turns on – it’s a blast! Then music-centric events will be happening indoors, on the beach, in the theatres, you name it, they will have it! Contests, games, the kids will never be bored! This is the perfect time to take the kids and go to Mexico! They may never want to leave!

Getting a Great Deal on Your Stay at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

First off, I’m not an affiliate for AIC Hotel Group or Hard Rock Hotels. I am not being compensated for this article. I will not receive compensation if you book a stay at the Hard Rock Hotel, just to be upfront. I’m just super excited about this new addition to their hotel!

At the time of writing this article, April 10, 2019, Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya has some really great offers on their website, https://www.hrhrivieramaya.com/online-exclusive.htm, including up to 35% off bookings made directly on their website. It also states that this discount is combinable with other offers including Kids Stay Free in Deluxe Family Room. I suggest if you are interested in this promotion that you check it out on their website, and make sure to read the fine print – but it may be an offer worth taking advantage of. It appears to be available for the week of August 12-16, 2019.
