(Macao, June 17, 2013) - Thirty roarin' stompin' dinosaurs are headed for town, and they'll be putting up at The Venetian® Macao's CotaiExpo™ Hall F July 1-Oct. 1, 2013, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. daily. Tickets for Dinosaurs Live at The Venetian start at MOP/HKD 80 (adult) and MOP/HKD 50 (children), with a family package available for MOP/HKD 232, which includes admission tickets for four visitors, one of whom must be a child aged 3-12.
A travelling exhibition which has toured Europe and Asia and has already been viewed by over half a million visitors, Dinosaurs Live is an interactive experience for families and kids of all ages. Thirty animatronic dinosaurs which move, breathe, and emit sounds will be on exhibit in a 2,500-square-metre (27,000-square-foot) jungle setting at CotaiExpo. Visitors to The Venetian Macao's lagoon or mall areas might even be lucky enough to catch sight of a dinosaur stomping around.
The exhibition takes visitors 250 million years back in time to see these prehistoric creatures up close and personal, and learn some useful information about their habitats, lifestyles and diet. The dinosaurs on display can wriggle their claws, arch their necks, turn their heads and flick their tongues. Visitors who watch closely will even see the dinosaurs' eyes and abdomens move.
Colossal creatures at the Dinosaurs Live at The Venetian exhibition include: Ankylosaurus, Dimetrodon, Spinosaurus, Stegosaurus, Velociraptor and T. rex. Children will be able to climb onto and ride on the back of an Iguanodon, a Protoceratops, or a Triceratops. In addition, there will be a 3-D dinosaur movie available for viewing. Admission tickets with the 3-D movie included are MOP/HKD 100 (adult) and MOP/HKD 70 (children).
A DinoStore located at the end of the exhibition will carry an array of dinosaur paraphernalia, sure to please die-hard dinosaur fans of all ages. Dinosaurs Live at The Venetian is a highly educational, entertaining and historical experience for young and old alike, starting July 1 at CotaiExpo.
