Petrosains: The Discovery Centre, anyone?

Don't know how to kill your weekend with your kids? Pack all of them and head over to the Petrosains.

I brought my little heroes there last year and indeed they had a wonderful time. I thought that my younger one (who was three at that time) would find that place a total bore, I was definitely 100% wrong:D


The visit started of with an introduction to the world of petroleum via a dark ride through a little tunnel. As for my little heroes, it was a YIPEE time (Intro? Was there an intro? Who cares...the ride was more fun!)


After that, it was a walk through three different stations. The little heroes had fun at the Geotime Diorama (Can I keep that dino as my pet? Pleaseeeee...)


Overall, they enjoyed the second and third stations the best. There were lots of thought-provoking puzzles and illusions to boggle their little mind. There are also endless lines of games and activities for them to explore.


Check out these pics:


Mummy, is this a "Flintstone" car? Hey...why isn't it moving??


Gee, where is everyone? Err, is that a REAL volcano down there?

My three heroes: at the Ungku Omar Theatre (3D stereographic movie)
