Dinosaurs come alive at “RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed” at Plaza Singapura! Mamenchisaurus makes its first appearance in a shopping mall in Singapore

Feel the adrenaline rush this school holidays as you come face to face with the fearsome T-Rex, the largest carnivore to ever live on land. Be awed by the gentle giant Mamenchisaurus, a sauropod dinosaur known for its remarkably long neck. The Mamenchisaurus, making its first appearance in Singapore, holds the record for having the longest neck of any creature, 17 metre long, that has ever lived.

June holiday RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed

Meet them and three other animatronic dinosaurs at “RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed” at Plaza Singapura Main Atrium, from 26 May to 11 June 2017, between 11am and 8.30pm!

Other dinosaurs at the exhibition include the Yangchuanosaurus, a predator that lived in China during the Bathonian and Callovian stages of the Middle Jurassic, the Herrerasaurus, one of the earliest dinosaur in existence, and the Omeisaurus, a herbivorous dinosaur which lived in late Jurassic China. Visitors can experience a world where dinosaurs once roamed, with each exhibit featuring life-like movements, colours, textures and sounds. The exhibition also showcases the origin of these fascinating dinosaurs over 200 million years ago.

Children can also let their creativity run wild at the activity zone. At “Light Up Dinosaurs”, they can learn all about how electrical circuits work, and personalise their very own dinosaur-shaped finger lights, which light up with a slide of their fingers. They can even create life-sized dinosaur masks and detailed models of the flying Pteranodon – all from scratch. What’s more, shoppers can embark on a Jurassic journey with fun-filled dinosaur rides. Each ride and workshop costs only $5.

Shoppers can also look forward to an edutainment show about dinosaurs, “RAWR” Science Show with Jim, which is available on weekends at 1.30pm, 4.30pm and 7.30pm.

“We are excited to collaborate with the Science Centre to present a larger than life dinosaur exhibition that is fun and educational for the whole family. As a pioneer of the one-stop shopping mall in Singapore, we take pride in creating new and unforgettable memories for our shoppers through the activities we bring in. In addition to getting up close with giant dinosaurs this school holidays, families and friends can enjoy the day out at Plaza Singapura, be it catching a movie, or having a well-deserved treat,” said Ms June Ang, Centre Manager of Plaza Singapura.
