Since it was a long weekend we have nothing much to do at home, we decided to take a drive down town and bring bb along for some discovery in the Petrosains Discovery Center, KLCC. We just wanted to kill some time, Hah! So did not really expect much from that tour. However, uh…an Indian men approached us in the center telling us there is a special family package and what caught my attention was mother and son have FREE entrance, it was an offer in conjunction with Mother’s Day. It was about 3:30pm by the time we reached there. We purchased a family ticket at RM24 for four of us – Daddy, Mommy, Bb and Sri.
We were ushered to a waiting area where there was water sculpture and huge Koi fishes for the “Dark Ride” to start the journey. It was a cup look alike ultra slow roller coaster. It brought us to discover the world of petroleum. Bb seemed to enjoy it very much. Then it stopped at the Energy Station. I like one of that energy tubes in there. When you put your palm on the tube, it creates those new age WITCH looking pink thunder lights, COOL!!! POWER!!! We hang around there for a while before moving to the Cartoon village, Giotime Dioroma (Home of the Huge Dinosaur) for further discovery of "petroleum?". Seeing a real size Dinosaur for the first time, bb got a little frightening, he told me “scared”. I explained to him that it was manmade, there isn’t anymore of the real Dino in this world and added Daddy can make that Dino…haha!!!
We moved on to the Galeria for more Sains toys. Bb and daddy tried on an elephant trunk at far ends to communicate and understand where our telephone evolved. Later we boarded the Helicopter Simulator for an oil platform. Bb was not allowed as he was under five-yr-old. However, daddy managed to get him to join me in the helicopter ride later when he cried furiously looking for me and those “abang” there made him an exception. Although the helicopter shake quite a fair bit, I think bb enjoyed it. I asked him, was it nice? He replied with a smile “Yes”.
It was a couple of stopped by at other discoveries before exiting the tour. Bb insisted to wait for the “Dark ride” out; we had to queue for it, luckily, it was only a while before we hopped in the dark ride.
Bb was very exhausted after so many stimulating stuffs in there. We had a quick dinner before heading home.
It was a cheap $$ tour I guess if you ask for my comments. Haha! Overall, a great place to spend some time with kids.
