Thematic Park in Thessaloniki Goes Jurassic (photos)

Twenty huge dinosaurs have taken up their positions at pavilion 5 in Thessaloniki’s International Exhibition Centre. The most popular, Tyrannosaurus Rex, may even take a walk through the city centre and along the waterfront promenade within the next few days.

For three months T-Rex and his friends are expecting children and adults to visit them at TIF’s Thematic Park.

The exhibition turns the giant galactic clock and Earth’s smaller clock back millions of years to present the giants that then dominated the planet.

The park’s visitor will have the opportunity to experience a trip in space time as the huge robot-exhibits, through their motion, colours, sounds and the atmosphere of the exhibition transport them back and make them feel all this is real, and that they have really returned to the Jurassic era when dinosaurs reigned supreme.

The exhibition has been designed by the Paleontological Institute Felix de Azara, the University Maimonides of Argentina, and is signed and curated by Sebastian Apesteguia; a noted paleontologist and professor of Natural Sciences.

The park was set up by TIF-Helexpo in cooperation with Dream Workers and Eksagon Greece.

The Dinosaur park is open Monday to Thursday from 09:00-14:00; Fridays from 09:00 to 14:00, and 17:00 to 20:00; and from 11:00 to 19:00 on Saturdays and Sundays.
