Fun Scientific Journey
While you are here, don’t miss out the scientific journey, where you proceed your exploration in stages. Start your journey from The Lobby to the Dark Ride In, followed by an educationally entertaining ride through the passages of Energy, Petrojaya, Geotime Diorama, Science Station 1, Exploration, Galleria, Helicopter Simulator, Oil Platform, Downstream, Molecule Nanoworld, Metre City, Science Station 3, Teater Ungku Omar, Dark Ride Out and Xplorasi.
Beware! You can lose yourself in the ever-changing environments inside Petrosains where you are treated with an endless surprise of discoveries. You can walk through the ever-green Malaysian rainforests into the deep blue underwater world.
There is also a Cartoon Village that is very colorful and entertaining for the your whole family. The Cartoon Village is where highly advanced technology is seamlessly blended with shadow puppet play (Wayang Kulit) to give you a play by play story of hero Sri Rama and the evil King Rawana and our local hero. You will have fun watching how the shadow puppet hero managed to save the petroleum industry that we have today.
Look out also for the Sauber Petronas Formula One racing car and a singing dinosaur that are sure to amuse you as it stands fiercely poised in its prehistoric environment. You can also experience the sensation of being in a flying helicopter!
