But anyhow, we also went to Petrosains at KLCC and it was such a good experience! Highly recommended for kids and adults too! Not to mention the super affordable entrance fee. For kids it's only RM8 and they have a family package (for 2 adults and 2 kids) at RM40 so that's what we took as it worked out cheaper than paying individually.
To enter, we had to take the "Dark Ride" which was pretty cool. Here are the 2 girls waiting excitedly for their turn to get on the ride.
The capsule that we were sitting in was supposed to be in the shape of an oil drop and it took us through Malaysia's rainforests, mountains and underwater sceneries.
All their exhibits are interactive, so the kids got to do their own experiments. There were also lots of helpful volunteers (most probably uni students) and they all spoke excellent English.
This was a capsule which was supposed to simulate the wind on planet Jupiter. It left our hair in a big mess cos the wind was really strong!
Another volunteer explaining an experiment to the girls:
There were lots of exhibits and experiments for the kids to see and touch, and I can't remember what all of them were, so I'll just let the pictures do the talking.
Playing virtual football with Kung Kung:
We also had a look at what it was like on an actual oil rig.
And Hannah had a go on this super slide. She just made the height requirement, so Heidi could not play. But when Hannah came down, she said it was quite scary!
Towards the end, we watched a 3D movie in their in-house theatre, and there was also a class for the girls to create their own experiments. Today's class was making "jumping cups". We still have those at home, and when they got home, they made one for Helene too :)
All in all it was a fun outing, and we would certainly come here again given the opportunity!
