Welcome to Jurassic World.
It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the film franchise began with the 1993 movie Jurassic Park. To celebrate the momentous anniversary, Jurassic World: The Exhibition has been touring the world and will finally make its debut Down Under when it opens in Sydney at the end of September.
Don’t fret, this isn’t a bunch of scientists trying to recreate the dinosaur species, even though it may look that way. The engineers behind this incredible exhibition are playing with life-like animatronics.
Your journey through the exhibition will begin onboard a ferry taking you to Isla Nublar, the island where dinosaurs were bred in Jurassic Park. Here, you’ll be able to walk through the iconic ‘Jurassic World’ gates and encounter a life-sized brachiosaurus, velociraptors, and the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex. Younger fans of children’s show Camp Cretaceous will be able to snap a selfie with baby dino, Bumpy.
Rex Kingdom is the highlight, set up with replica high-voltage fences from the films and a moving, life-size meat-eating T.Rex that will make those with nerves of steel jump. The exhibition is family friendly, this might be one you want to skip if you have younger kids in tow as it could be nightmare inducing.
Jurassic World: The Exhibition will be presented starting Friday, September 22, for a limited time at the newly reimagined 3,000 sqm SuperLuna Pavilion, Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park.
Admission starts at $39 for children (ages 3+) and $49 for adults (ages 16+). For more information or to book, visit jurassicworldexhibition.com.au
