HEAD down to the Lost World of Tam­bun in Ipoh this time of the year, and get trans­ported back to a time when di­nosaurs roamed the Earth.

From now till Jan 1, 2017, the park is rolling out an ar­ray of in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and shows to give vis­i­tors an ‘Xmasaurus’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

Kick start your Merry Pre­his­toric Christ­mas at the Lost World of Tam­bun by meet­ing fa­mil­iar Christ­mas char­ac­ters, along­side some cave­men.

You can also take self­ies with jolly old San­tasaur at his mee­tand-greet ses­sion be­fore he en­ter­tains guests with a fun dance per­for­mance.

Then, watch as the di­nosaurs take cen­trestage, and dance in the Xmas Rawr show.

You can also get close to baby di­nosaurs and feed them at the Meet-and-Greet Baby Di­nosaurs ses­sion.

To top things off, watch the Xmasaurus Di­nosaurs Alive show, where you can even get up close and per­sonal with these fear­some beasts.

Ev­ery­one is also wel­come to join the joy­ous Xmasaurus Pa­rade, and take awe­some pho­tos as a keep­sake of your fun-filled day at the Lost World of Tam­bun.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties to be had in­clude:

putting on a di­nosaur cos­tume and stomp­ing your way through the Juras­sic Rally;

drop­ping by at the Dino Cryo ar­chae­ol­ogy lab to un­leash your in­ner ar­chae­ol­o­gist;

learn­ing how to ex­ca­vate a di­nosaur in an ice ball, where you can also win your­self a di­nosaur egg;

‘build­ing’ your­self a T-Rex with sand within 40 sec­onds at the D-I-Dyno; or

beat­ing down a piñata T-Rex at the T-Rex Smack­down Chal­lenge.

You can also search for your very own di­nosaur at Pa­leo Dig lo­ca­tions around the Lost World of Tam­bun.

When night falls, the Night Zoo at the Lost World of Tam­bun comes to life. Watch ex­otic noc­tur­nal an­i­mals up close, and take a walk along the unique new rain­for­est trail.
