Sightsee of Mom at Jurassic Land


Tyranosorous

The schools are at break time at February in Turkey. As all the moms here around, I also made a couple of plans for sightseeing in the city with my children. So we headed to Jurassic Land which is at Forum Mall in Istanbul.

Jurassic Land is a kind of museum to understand how the dinosours lived on earth many many millions of years ago. Here, you can see how they were feeding, how their family life was, why they were sooo savage, how they born and lived and how their line of descent generated and changed and finally become extincted.

We went there with curosity... As entering the park, a great dinosour's structural frame welcomed us... We all got more excited to see more... A guide leaded us to the sections of the park. Firstly to 4D theatre saloon!!! We sat down on the seats. She (our guide) explained that the movie we will be watching going to be a simulation of how the dinosours were living in the jungle. My kids and of course I got really excited. They used real effects, I mean like, wind blow to my face, I felt the dinosours breath on my neck and then the ground rocked so my seat..I was suffocated, at that moment my little daughter, who is 3 and a half years old, wanted to get out. She was scared!! My son and my husband came ten minutes later. They had this experience and got attracted by it very much.

Our guide leaded us towards to other sections and explained their ritiual of living. We saw the real size of the most famous dinousors, how their moves are and even heard the noises they make. The kids were very interested and started recording and taking pictures of the scene.

Towards to finish they took us to the section of excavating dinosour eggs from the sand.  The children got shovels like an archeologist and found the eggs. This was a good experience for them to understand how an archeology would be.

At the end of the tour, they held a party for kids. After the excitement of dinosours, kids enjoyed the party very much and danced alot, JUMPED aaloot ;))

party at Jurassic Land

Must knows about Jurassic Land;
  • A guide will lead  for your tour, so no need for planning. 
  • Do take your children 7 and over years old, not suggest for under 6 years old especially for 4D movie theatre. (Most of parents had to take their little ones out the theatre)
  • No availability for restrooms on the way of tour, only you can find at the exit of the museum party hall. (Families with children must use the room before taking the tour)
  • No cloakroom service.
  • There is no restaurants or cafes at the park, since this is a guided visiting museum I believe there is no need to. Only take drink with you "in case of emergency situations" with the kids.
  • At the right side of the exit there is a Jurassic Cafe, this a choice for us since %15 discount is for  Jurassic Park visitors. (Do not throw your ticket away, since they will ask for the ticket at the billing time!!!)
  • There are lots of other cafes and restaurants at Forum Mall for the starving little bodies...
  • At the end of the tour there is a souvenier shop, if you are interested ;))
  • Jurassic Land is at upper storey of Forum Istanbul Mall. If you are using stroller, I suggest you to take the elevator ;))
  • There are digging and colouring dinosour egg workshop for children. Before going on tour ask for info from the reception desk.

My minimum expectation of the park was to see a real dinousur replicas or see a scale model just as the original ones. I could not find that here at this museum! However I think this is a good park to let children understand how these prehistoric animals had lived and how their surrounding had been at those times. By the information the guide gives and by the scenes they created here makes you imagine the prehistory world.

For the children who are very interested in dinousors should see this place at once, since the park will effect the kid's imagination alot.

One of the best to see with children Sedir Island in Marmaris

Cleopatra Island is a heaven on earth!!!
Sea, sand, ancient ruins of Greek time, the smell of olive trees, the sun and of course the feelings that make you are in a place that is heaven :))

They say, Cleopatra and Antonius had lived a tremendous love on this island.
So that Antonius did whatever to please the very beloved Cleopatra, the famous queen of ancient Egypt. He obtained the wonderful sand of Red Sea and 60 ships transferred it over to Sedir Island. This was to adjust the comfort of Cleopatra in this lovely turquise colored water.


The sand that made the island very famous nowadays. This is not similar with the one that you can find at every beach.
The sand does not differ from each other as they all have the same sphere with the same measurement, incredible ha ;)) The sand can be burned by fire or can be multipled by soda. If you ever observe the sand by a magnifier, you will find that the sand moves.

"Mummy, are these alive, can they eat us?"
"Hımm, no my dear…
