Exciting indoor area in the Triassic Park in Waidring
In the first part of the exhibition, visitors are transported to a prehistoric underwater world. In this “underwater world” you have the opportunity, to get to know extinct marine reptiles and countless other primeval creatures, who once lived in the Steinplatte area. At interactive stations and using state-of-the-art multimedia technology, visitors are introduced to this topic in a playful way. Visitors embark on a journey through time, whilst at the same time travelling to the depths of the ancient primordial sea - the Tethys - “up” to a lagoon, before heading to the adjoining explorer camp. Here, curious souls and knowledge-hungry people can slip into the roll of an archaeologist for themselves and try out the diversely exciting activities of a scientist, thus becoming a real explorer.
