CITY OF ARABIA LAUNCH AT ARABIAN TRAVEL MARKET

The City of Arabia was officially launched at the Arabian Travel Market this month where visitors were astonished to find a 7m animatronic Tarbosaurus dinosaur welcoming them to the stand.

Scheduled to open in 2008, the park will feature the Mall of Arabia, predicted to be one of the world’s largest shopping mall, and a breathtaking dinosaur theme park, The Restless Planet.

Developed in collaboration with the Natural History Museum of London it will contain more than 100 lifelike, actual size ‘animatronic’ dinosaurs manufactured and assembled by Kokoro Animatronics in Japan.
