Embark on a journey through the process of petroleum science at the Petrosains Discovery Centre. Owned by national oil giant, Petronas, the science centre was built with the aim of helping visitors understand the process of petroleum extraction.
Petrosains entertains visitors the moment they step through their doors with a range of interactive stations and exhibits. Upon entry, visitors are transported through an audiovisual spectacle of the Dark Ride, a carriage in the shape of a petroleum molecule. At the destination, visitors are greeted by the galleries of hands-on experiments.
There’s also the singing animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex that greets you at the Geotime Diorama. Escape the erupting volcano and pick up geological fun facts and how oil deposits are formed. Then, jump onto the earthquake bench to get a feel of low-, medium- and high-strength earthquakes.
Another thrilling ride is the lifelike helicopter simulator. Experience a heart thumping flight as you experience turbulence en route to your destination. As a major sponsor for the Formula One (F1) race, activities line up in the Speed section of Petrosains, giving you the feel of an F1 racer with the combination of a life size race car and impeccable simulation technology.
Before you end your trip, visitors are also encouraged to test individual reaction times, karate chop abilities, downhill skiing skills, vertical jumps and much more.
Located on the fourth floor of Suria KLCC, Petrosains is most definitely worth the visit for a great day out that the whole family can enjoy.
