Roam with dinosaurs at Dubai's IMG Worlds of Adventure


(MENAFN- Khaleej Times)Since their extinction 65 million years ago dinosaurs are soon to roam for the first time and that too in Dubai at the IMG Worlds of Adventure.

With the installation of the 69 state-of the-art dinosaurs in the Lost Valley - Dinosaur Adventure zone the world's largest multi-brand indoor theme park has entered its final stages of work.

To ensure the most authentic interactive dinosaur entertainment experience IMG Worlds of Adventure collaborated with Kokoro the pioneering Japanese animatronics company to produce the creatures of the Lost Valley - Dinosaur Adventure.

In the park guests will be transported to the prehistoric era where they can track down the dinosaurs watch them in their natural environment and hear them roar or feast on prey.

Among the dinosaurs spread across the vast Jurassic terrain the enormous Barosaurus and the ferocious Allosaurus are included. Taking up to 5 years to create and with the Barosaurus at over 15.5 metres high the dinosaurs move breathe and feel like their ancestors.

To design each individual creature Kokoro used hydraulics to replicate their unique movements their scales have been hand-sculpted by specialist artists whilst a thin covering layer of silicone gives their skin a shiny life-like appearance similar to modern day living reptiles.

For thrill seekers The Lost Valley park also contains "The Velociraptor" a mega launch coaster which will propel visitors to an exhilarating 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. The coaster will have four inversions and will be the only permanently installed looping coaster in the UAE with its biggest loop topping a whopping 105 feet high.

Further attractions in the zone will be announced in the coming weeks as excitement builds towards an early 2016 opening date for IMG Worlds of Adventure.

Commenting on the arrival of the dinosaurs Lennard Otto General Manager of IMG Worlds of Adventure said: "This is an incredibly exciting moment for us having witnessed the creation of these extraordinary creatures and now seeing them in their new habitat. In addition to the dinosaurs providing sheer entertainment we will be developing a range of interactive educational programmes positioning IMG Worlds of Adventure as one of the leading dinosaur attractions in the world.

"The arrival of the dinosaurs is also one of the final steps towards the completion of the park."

Atsuya Yamada President of Kokoro said "In Japanese Kokoro means 'heart' or 'spirit' and we really have put our passion into creating these dinosaurs. They are based on the most up-to-date scientific knowledge of what dinosaurs would have looked like and how they would have moved in their natural environment. Visitors to IMG Worlds of Adventure will be dazzled by the experience of encountering them."
