JURASSICA, a first-of-its-kind edutaining prehistoric immersive experience that advocates planet and wildlife conservation in Malaysia, is now open at The Gardens Mall.
Rich in biodiversity, with a rapidly growing economy, Malaysia exemplifies the tension between conservation and economic development.
Although it is gradually progressing, following governmental efforts for green product development, the practices of environmental responsible behaviour are still low among Malaysians.
Making a conscious effort to practice offering environmentally friendly products and services, Tremendous Entertainment Group has conceptualised Jurassica - standing as an advocate to saving and conserving our planet, to spread awareness on environmental issues affecting global climate.
What happens in Jurassica
Unlike typical dino-themed parks and exhibitions, the message of planet conservation at Jurrasica is carried throughout the family fun, edutainment, immersive, exhibition space.
Sprawled across 15,000 square feet, visitors dubbed as Earth Cadets travel through a time vortex to Jurassica.
Here, Cadets collect vital prehistoric specimens needed to save the planet in an interactive RFID scavenger hunt while offering a sensory feast of endless fun for the whole family.
Apart from the neon-lit hunt, Cadets face life-sized animatronic dinosaurs, an adrenaline pumping zip-line, a volcanic sky bridge, a sandpit, an interactive climbing wall, a live reptile zone, a 3-storey Jurrasic Gym and plenty more.
Malaysian Nature Society, WWF and Hi-5 support Jurrasica
At the Cretaceous Camp, Cadets will also enjoy daily talks by Jurassica’s resident reptile-handler and scheduled talks and workshops by several participating Non-governmental organisations including the Malaysian Nature Society, World Wildlife Fund and more.
Jurassica firmly believes in reusing and repurposing, so much so, that several sections in the exhibition were erected with recycled materials thanks to a partnership with the creative minds of Biji-Biji, a social enterprise that champions sustainable living.
To enlist change, Jurassica has recruited Hi-5 – the popular preschool edutainment pop group – as ambassadors for Jurassica’s ‘Save Our Planet Program’, in hopes of echoing the message of planet conservation to a global audience.
In addition, 10% of all Hi-5 merchandise sales available at Jurassica’s Gift Shop will be donated to similar causes as part of the Save Our Planet Program.
Tickets for children and adults are priced at RM48 for Malaysians and RM58 for non-Malaysians on weekdays while tickets on weekends including school and public holidays are at RM58 for Malaysians and RM68 for non-Malaysians. Opening hours are 10am to 10pm daily.
