Do you still remember the movie Jurrasic Park at year 1993 directed by Steven Spielberg? I watched it when I was a kid. I felt it was the best movie that I’ve ever watched those days.
Last month, my Unimate Jeanly mentioned about “Dinosaurs Alive in KL”. Without hesitation, we ended up with gathering cum dinosaurs tour. On the other hand, Siew Sian was so sporting to even book train tickets to travel from Butterworth to KL together with her children to make this gathering happen.
A week before the meeting date, I told Jet that mummy is bringing you to watch dinosaurs. He hooray-ed with excitement. But I think I am more excited than him. 😀

As we entered the hall, we were greeted by the huge T-Rex and Sauropod, with much roaring sound. The hall looks like Avatar world. LOL! With neon lights, forest like surroundings and crickets sound.
In an air-conditioned big tent, there’s over 40 life-size, primordial creatures with life-like reptilian skin. They roar, breathe and stomp.
If you begin from the right side, there’s an inflatable playground for the kids to have fun.
There were total of 3 inflatable playground here.
A typical Sauropod had a large barrel-shaped body, a long neck, a small head, and a long, powerful tail. It stood on four tree-trunk like legs.
Information about the species of dinosaur is shown here too.
There were some games with prize. But each game was priced at RM10.
This game is RM10 for 3 balls. You gotto aim the balls into the dinosaur mouth in order to win prize. However if you failed to aim any, you will still get a stalk of toy flower. 🙂
Play the role of paleontologist at price of RM10.
Special outfit and tools are provided. Then you get to bring home the mini size fossil.
A glimpse of Ceratopsians (Horned, Frilled Dinosaurs).
Velociraptor(Meat Eater) and Iguanodon(Plant Eater).
For some light refreshment, there’s also some food stalls with seating tables and chairs.
Other than that, you can also watch the video documentary. (on the right of picture)
Pick your lucky dinosaur game at RM10. Every dinosaur will have a number under its feet. The numbers will indicate the prize.
Jet chose the green dinosaur. Let’s see what he got.
Jet’s number fall into the group of ‘7, 9 , 11’. Therefore he got a ball! 😀
Although there’s a fee of RM10 for each of the above mentioned game and activities, but this sand art activity is free of charge. Hence you see the crowd here.
There were only 3 designs to choose. All the designs are of dinosaurs which is related to this exhibition.
Jet did the sand art by himself with some guidance from me.
He proudly showed his completed art work.
Stegosauria was a group of armored dinosaurs that had rows bony of plates running along their backs.
Hadrosaurids are also known as ‘duck-billed’ dinosaurs on account of their wide mouth parts. Many Hadrosaurids were able to walk on both two and four feet, using all four feet when grazing, but using two feet to run.
Gifts and Souvenirs counter, so that you will not go home empty handed. Goodie bag at price RM70 with dinosaurs merchandises 😀
A group photo with Jeanly & Siew Sian, together with our children.
I didn’t get the chance on the assembling dinosaur bone wood craft which was free too (the crowd area at the background) because Jet starting to fuss.
Toilet facility is available here.
We parked our car at the car park area opposite to (Matic) for RM2 (weekend). Total spending time was about 2+ hours. This dinosaur exhibition has draw much crowd from families with children. The curiosity and excitement to watch huge size dinosaurs, also a good introduction towards Jurassic world. Quite fun also lar, when you watches the macho T-Rex roaring. Staffs are quite friendly and attentive. However I felt that the price is abit high. Would love that if the price is inclusive of all activities inside. Imagine if you have a big family. That would be a big sum.
