Grand opening: Dinosaur Planet theme park opens doors with roaring robots (VIDEO)

The Dinosaur Planet officially opened doors on Friday for curious Bangkokians to explore the prehistoric world and scare themselves by running away from a bunch of raptors.

After driving the T-Rex around town so it could roar at motorists, a smart PR stunt that got us all excited, The Dinosaur Planet paraded their life-like dinosaurs at their grand opening — and we must say they’re pretty awesome.

Among the activities, the biggest highlights include the Raptor X-Treme, where visitors are put on a mission where they have to escape from velociraptor robots, and the Dino Eye, aka the giant ferris wheel that gives you a bird’s-eye view of the park.

We’re a little disappointed by the Dino Farm, or the dinosaur riding experience, because the dinosaurs available for rides are so tiny and look very plastic. Then again, the smaller robots could be safer for kids if you’re willing to pay an extra THB100.

Our reporter said some of the zones still smell of fresh paint, and one of the rides, 4D Deep World, was not yet open.

Admission prices are THB600 for adults, THB400 for children under 140 centimeters height, and free for children under 90 centimeters height.

Here is the full list of the park’s attractions:
