A visit to the Petrosains DinoTrek 2 at Jusco

In order to read more about the dinosaurs in action, we decided to pay a visit to Petrosains DinoTrek 2 at Jusco. We started surfing the Petrosains website few weeks ago.
We visited the exhibition Petrosains DinoTrek 2 on 12.12.2010 after worship at a church.

We arrived at Jaya Jusco Bandar Perda, Bandar Perda around 12.15p.m.

Christmas tree decoration looks like a piece of art. Mom really like it.

There are lots of ways to make recycled Christmas decorations by reusing waste paper and scrap fabric. This Christmas tree is made of recycled plastic bottles. They really did a great job.

What a lovely dinosaur slide. Both of you say hello to it.
Outdoor play is part of being a child. Children will have fun when they slide down this cutey dinosaur slide.
Lydia and Priscilla, do you feel this Christmas atmosphere? Christmas is around the corner.
Fun-filled learning adventures were going to start. Let us step back to a time where dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Do you see the tyrannosaurus head at the entrance?
DinoTrek is a mini dinosaur exhibition. Tickets for adult is RM6.00, children RM3.00.
When you stepped on the "yes" or "no" pads, you need to answer three questions. Dino Quiz will challenge your knowledge with questions to test your general knowledge on dinosaurs. Priscilla got all wrong. By answering three simple questions, a gate will open.
They had various dinosaur exhibits, some of the dinosours were built to move. By pressing two or more buttons at the same time, you can lift its front legs, wave its tail and open its mouth to hear a roar.
It moves its head, tail and arms, walks, responds to touch and lets out a big roar when spoken to! Children, the dinosaur world uses very different language than we do.
There were also lots of terminals with interesting games.

They also had lots of activities to engage the children. We had fun time at Dinosaur Extinction Maze Area.

We can observes by personal how the baby dinosaurs break free from their eggshells. One of the main attractions at the exhibition.
A chance for visitors to dance with the coolest creatures in the Mesozoic era. They captured us in action. Snapshots of coolest moves with the dinosours will be taken. Really funny. It can be sent straight to your email. But unfortunately, the photo was not so clear.

We learnt about the true facts about dinosaurs through this multimedia exhibit.
Dinotrek2 prepared an excavation site 'Dino Dig' where you can discover fossils. Children enjoyed digging fossils from the sand pit.
Each exhibit has a story to tell and with 9 animatronic dinosaurs.
Dinosaurs disappeared from Earth since 65 million years ago. There are dinosaurs which are carnivores and herbivores.
Here is a site where a Velociraptor fighting a Protoceratops.
DinoTrek 2 allows families to learn together through co-operative exploration. What a delightful experience.

As for dad and mom, the Dinotrek 2 exhibition was quite educational, with activities and fun stuffs for children. We took up nearly 1 hour to cover everything. A real "value-for-money" family activity which we travelled 100 million years back in time.

Lydia and Priscilla, it was fun learning about dinosaurs. We discovered more about dinosaurs through the detailed explanations, interactive games and quizzes. Dad and mom really hope this activity can promote the love for science and life-long learning.
