Visitors to Bay Street, Malta’s leading shopping, dining, leisure and entertainment Complex in St George’s Bay, St Julian’s, will travel back several millennia in time over the summer months. The main attraction; a life-size, baby T-Rex dinosaur is set to terrify all those who enter the Jurassic themed paddock in the Rotunda on Level Zero at Bay Street. The baby T-Rex is over 2 metres tall and, more impressively, is some 4.3 metres long from nose to tail. The big ‘T’ stands for Tyrannosaurus, which comes from the Greek words meaning ‘tyrant lizard’. Rex means ‘king’ in Latin. Those who enter the T-Rex Paddock can have their photo taken with the T-Rex, printed there and then for them to take home.
In collaboration with Heritage Malta, Bay Street Complex will have on display a number of showcases containing fossils ranging from different periods dating back to over 80 million years ago from the Museum of Natural History in Mdina to the Complex. The fossils include those of the pygmy elephant that inhabited the Maltese islands, teeth and other remains from around the same period that the T-Rex walked the earth. Philip Galea, Marketing Executive for Bay Street Holdings, said in a statement: “Bay Street wanted to show our visitors something that wasn’t an illusion, something that they can see and touch. It is a learning experience for young and old.” Mr. Galea explained that no expense was spared in operating this attraction. The Dinosaur Attraction, shall be enhanced with occasional informational talks from the National Museum of Natural History. The Jurassic Street Summer attraction at Bay Street is being supported by Mercedes-Benz KIND’S Auto Sales Ltd , Original Marines on Level 2 at Bay Street, the Malta National Aquarium, Heritage Malta, Malta sightseeing and Smart Point.
