Double dose of dinosaurs

Dinosaur hunters: Children with their junior and expert paleontologist certificates.

MORE than 100 people stand to win free passes to watch the new Jurassic World movie just days after it opens in Malaysia by taking part in a lucky draw organised by a first-of-its-kind edutainment exhibition and a cinema chain.

Visitors to the Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! exhibition only need to spend RM100 and above in a maximum of two receipts from now to June 8 at Discoveria, Avenue K to be eligible for the contest.

The screening of the movie will take place on June 13 at 11.30am at GSC Tropicana City Mall in a specially reserved hall.

Winners will be contacted by phone or email and will be required to collect the tickets on the day of the screening.

The fourth instalment in the Jurassic Park film series is scheduled to be released in Malaysia on June 11.

“The Jurassic Park film series is undoubtedly a much-loved classic among sci-fi fans and the release of Jurassic World has been greatly anticipated worldwide.

“We’re delighted to be a part of this moment with Golden Screen Cinemas, and to be able to reward our loyal patrons for their support over the past year,” said EMS Discoveria Sdn Bhd general manager Lee Yew Jin.

Since it opened in March last year, Dinoscovery by Dinosaurs Live! has attracted over 45,000 local and international visitors.

The exhibition features re-engineered, life-size animatronic dinosaurs in true-to-life adventure-like settings and a variety of interactive activities that provide a sensory feast of endless fun for the whole family.

Among the exhibition’s attractions is the Dino Quest, a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)-based scavenger hunt which will propel visitors through a time warp and turn them into paleontologists on the hunt for dinosaur specimens.

Visitors will be given a vest and equipped with a map, torchlight and RFID tag, which will guide them to exciting discoveries.

Upon completion of each activity, visitors will collect stickers and paste them on to the map to redeem a Junior or Expert Paleontologist certificate from the Dinoscovery Captain at the end of the tour.

Other engaging activities include racing a gallimimus in an interactive race, climbing a wall to peek at a pteranodon’s nest, saving diplodocuses by shooting pesky mosquitoes and getting your hands dirty by excavating for fossils and handling dinosaur poo.

The exhibition also allows for visitors to learn about the evolution of dinosaurs through interactive kiosks, comparing and analysing present day animals such as chickens and elephants with dinosaurs such as the theropod and sauropod as well as by watching a documentary in a 3D cinema.

Visitors may also enjoy delectable fusion food while quenching their thirst with a variety of unique mocktails and freshly brewed coffee at the Discoveria Cafeteria at the end of the exhibition.
