Trip to Petrosains

outside the petrosains
My little girl was given a choice as to what to do for her birthday and she chose a trip to the Petrosains.

PETROSAINS occupies two levels of the Petronas Twin Towers, it spreads over the 7,000 square meters of space, among the highlights that will keep you entertain inside the Petrosains would be the:
waiting to get on the dark ride
jungle scene along the dark ride
Sceneries of Malaysia...

Dark Ride : As the name suggest, it is a Dark Ride, you will be taken through forest, ocean and sky by a small round black “car”, it is not really a car but a place for you to sit comfortably for five people of a small size. The ride is dark but you will be entertain by a sight and sound through the ride, there is a big screen with a beautiful multimedia to keep you entertained.
    Petrojaya

    Petrojaya : A toon town with cartoon characters but teaches us about optic illusions and so on.
the friendly tyranasaurus rex that can sing in english and bahasa malaysia

mr t, what big teeth you have...

studying how some plants live underwater

mr sabretooth tiger, are you related to the vampires?

the live volcano....with sound, lighting and smoke

look mom, I found a huge fossil!!!

let's go search for fossils
Geotime Diorama : You will be taken back 200 million years in time and discover about dinosaur,volcano and petroleum. You will also get to meet the ancestors to the deer and elephant...

    Oil Rig Rollercoaster Ride Simulator and Oil Platform : My little girl and I went on a simulated roller coaster through desert, space etc and finally came out via an oil platform. Remember to fasten your seat belt as the ride is almost “real”. I like the experience inside the simulator, its is something that not to be missed.You need to get a ticket for RM2 per person for the simulator.

    3D Theater Ungku Omar : For those of you who have seen a 3D movie, this one might not interest you so much but still, it is a great experience especially you bring your kids along, they will enjoy it. You have to fork out another RM2 to watch the 3D movie. Anne watched the Sea Dragoons, a story of sea dragons.
We spent about two hours inside the Petrosains, as there are a lot of interactive games to keep you entertained, not just for kids but for adults too, there are a lot of reading material there, I mean the information. Actually we spent more time around the Geotime Diorama because it was entertaining watching the Tyranausaurus Rex singing alternately in English and Malay. And the volcanic explosion was pretty interesting as well as peering up the sabre tooth tiger's wide open mouth.
