Suncoast Casino offers South Africans of all ages and their children the opportunity for a fun day out at the Dinos Alive expo, which will be heading to Durban in November this year. This expo, which promises educational fun for all, has been touring the country for the last year and will now head down to the Golden Mile in Durban for the last leg of its tour, set to end in January 2016
The show offers spectators 25 dinosaurs such as the titanic T-rex and the vicious velociraptor, all on display in the proverbial flesh to allow kids and adults the opportunity to learn about these spectacular, but extinct, creatures. Director of the show, Etienne Schlechter, has stated that children in Durban will have an exciting experience, especially those who watched and enjoyed this year’s release of the movie, Jurassic Park. The dinosaurs are fully animatronic and allow viewers a little insight into how these terrible lizards once lived.
The show has received positive acclaim in Cape Town, Bloemfontein and in Pretoria where is seems that school children have flocked to see the dinosaurs, and to learn while they have fun. The exhibition is very focused on education, and features information boards and other educational tools to allow all who attend the opportunity to learn about the three featured eras, namely, the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic. The dinosaurs themselves have all been modelled to create as lifelike an impression as possible and every part of their bodies, from the wings of the pteranodon to the stegosaurus’ back plates, have been created with the potential attendees’ impressions in mind.
Those who attend the show at this premier South African casino will have the opportunity to do a little excavation of their own with the mock dig pit or learn more about the fossils on display. The dinosaur displays also feature audio to ensure those with smartphones have the opportunity to interact with their educations, using WeChat.
Tickets are now on sale for the show, which will feature 25 animatronic dinosaurs, three rides for children and even a jumping castle, for those who want to take a break from the era of the dinosaurs and have a little modern-day fun. Suncoast Casino itself also offers guests the opportunity to take advantage of the water park and more, so families hoping for a small vacation would do well to book their stay at this fine South African casino.
