DESPITE the belt-tightening efforts of Filipinos this season, Malaysian-based touring operator of  “Dinos Alive World Tour” of Max Entertainment was swamped by more than 12,000 visitors in its official public park opening on Friday.

The $2-million “walk-through” dinosaur theme park is at Block 5 of SM Mall of Asia (MOA) and measures 12 times the size of a basketball court (12,000 sq m).

It houses 31 robotic dinosaurs set in Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Patrons had the feel of 65 million years back as the venue utilizes smoke, cold wind and wash lights.

Grade-school pupils roamed inside while taking pictures with their parents, while toddlers inevitably burst into tears out of fear.

The company also apportioned 3,000 sq m for food-court area, small train and simulator rides, photo and souvenir shops, sand-box fossil hunt, and other fun activities inclusive of ticket prices.

Tickets on weekdays cost P500 for adult, P400 for children below a meter and P1,600 for family package, which includes five tickets.

Weekend ticket prices, on the other hand, are P600 for adult, P450 for children and P1,750 for family package.

The park will operate until January 11 next year and is open from 12 noon to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.

“Dinos Alive” was visited by more than 360,000 people from its previous tours in Bangkok, Thailand and Jakarta, Indonesia. Its next stops will be China, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam and Singapore.
