DinosAlive Expo

Dinosaurs are coming to Durban this November

Durban’s Golden Mile will soon turn into a scene out of the popular sci-fi film, Jurassic World! Over 25 ancient and mystic dinosaurs from the Dino’s Alive Exhibition will soon make SUNCOAST their home this November till January.

A South African tour that has visited the cities of Cape Town, Pretoria, Bloemfontein, Witbank and Johannesburg this year alone, the Dino’s Alive Exhibition finally comes to Durban after much anticipation. The animatronic dinosaurs are realistically modelled after their real-life counterparts, with lifelike skin and texturing. The likes of the winged Pteranodon, towering Diplodocus and horn-rimmed Stegosaurus are popular attractions on show. In addition, fossil displays, a mock excavation pit, rides on the popular T-Rex and Apatosaurus and a jumping castle will be on offer.

Attracting turn out crowds within each city visited, the exhibition has become an instant favourite amongst children and adults alike. Part of the fascination is due to the realistic movements and sounds made by the dinosaurs, thanks to the animatronics technology.

“An exhibition for the entire family, Dino’s Alive not only entertains but also stimulates the mind” says SUNCOAST Marketing Manager, Louise Howell. She goes on to say “Exhibitions such as these are vastly important from an educational stand point as many children do not get the chance to experience such a world of intrigue, technology and discovery. Children and even adults will get an intimate and real sense of how these wonderful creatures once roamed the earth; it’s truly an experience not to be missed”.

The Durban exhibition will feature five information boards that explain the three historic ages of the dinosaur: Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous, as well as a look at life before and after these lizards roamed earth. Tickets for the exhibition are already on sale with early bird prices available till 30 September. Book your tickets at webtickets.co.za
