Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed at Plaza Singapura.
RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed. Dinosaurs come to Plaza Singapura for the June School Holidays!

A close encounter with rampaging dinosaurs at Plaza Singapura’s Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed.

Went to Plaza Singapura to renew my mobile contract, and walked right into monstrous dinosaurs!

Plaza Singapura Event: RAWR! Dinosaurs Unearthed.
Dinosaurs has invaded Plaza Singapura!!

Not an actual invasion by Jurassic fiends, of course. This Plaza Singapura event, a collaboration with the Singapore Science Centre, is a joint exhibition titled Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed.

Spread across the entire ground floor atrium, the exhibition featured several full-size automated beasties, children rides, as well as fun workshops.

What I found most impressive was how lifelike the massive automations were! From the looks of it, all seemed built to scale too.

This one looks a little nasty, you think?
Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed Mamenchisaurus Panel.
Pretty informative panel. I had NO IDEA there was a dino called a mamechisaurus. I thought the long-necks were all Diplodocuses.
Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed Omeisaurus Panel.
What a strange name. Since it’s Chinese, I wonder whether Omei actually mean Emei. As in, the Wuxia and Xianxia mountain.

Overview of Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed.

Personally, I’m not that into dinosaurs. They just feel, I don’t know, crude? That said, I don’t actually dislike them, and I continue to watch the Jurassic Park movie franchise.

For parents, I think this Plaza Singapura event is a great opportunity to entertain and educate the little darlings too. The ones I saw today were all positively delighted by the bellowing monsters. (The courage!) My other guess is also that none of them would be complaining later, when made to sit through dinner and grocery shopping. All thanks to this mini-adventure.

Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed Sandpit.
Sandpit! This reminded me of the Darkmoon Faire sandbox area in World of Warcraft. Dig on, kiddies! Collect those fossils and assemble your epic mount!

If you’re interested, Rawr! Dinosaurs Unearthed is ongoing at Plaza Singapura till Jun 11, 2017. There are various workshops and weekend shows. Details about the shows and related promotions can be found at Plaza Singapura’s site.
