Kuala Lumpur plays host to Asia Pacific’s first-of-its-kind interactive, edutainment dinosaur exhibition.
Kuala Lumpur, 1st December 2014 – Junior paleontologists, are invited to go back in time to the Mesozoic Era and walk amongst the dinosaurs at Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live!
Opened in Avenue K on 21st March 2014, the show features life-size animatronic dinosaurs in a sprawling newly-constructed 13,000 square foot exhibition space. Suited for children aged 3 and above, Dinoscovery invites visitors to travel back in time and uncover the world of dinosaurs through 20 interactive, educational activities.
Datuk Jared Lim, Chairman of EMS Holdings Pte Ltd, said, “We are proud to bring Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! a first-of-its-kind edutainment exhibition in Asia Pacific to Kuala Lumpur. We believe that Dinoscovery will prove to be a fun and stimulating educational experience for Malaysians and international visitors alike.”
The star attraction of the exhibit is the Dino Quest, a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) based scavenger hunt which takes visitors through a time warp, transforming them into paleontologists on the hunt for dinosaur specimens. Visitors will be equipped with a map and a RFID band which guides them on their adventure. After the course is completed, children walk out with Junior or Expert Paleontologist certificates.
“Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! is designed to provide a highly exhilarating experience whereby visitors are able to see larger-than-life dinosaurs move and hear them roar in their habitat. Apart from that, the exhibition also provides visitors the chance to watch a short dinosaur documentary in 3D cinema,” says Datuk Lim.
Other attractions include the shooting gallery, fossil excavation, wall climbing and even a Velociraptor race. Apart from the ferociously enthralling activities, there are also plenty of informational kiosks meant to educate children. At the end of the toothsome journey, visitors can end their day at the cafeteria with an array of delectable dishes and beverages.
Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! is supported by Malaysia Major Events, a division of Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau, an agency under Malaysia’s Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
