A queue that sometimes stretched as far as 300 metres formed outside Cityplaza in Taikoo Shing yesterday as families flocked to see a display of mainland dinosaur fossils. Guards said the crowds were even thicker than those last weekend, when about 190,000 people visited the display each day. 'Definitely it was more crowded today,' one guard said. Shopkeepers were happy as the visitors boosted business, particularly for children's products. Despite the long queue, especially in the three hours from noon, most did not have to wait more than half an hour. 'We only waited 20 minutes. It was worth it. My grandson loves it,' said a 61-year-old man, giving his name only as Mr Tong. Mrs Dang, 42, said she did not take part in the July 1 rally because she wanted to take her daughter to the exhibition. Another man said he would rather spend time with his child than join a protest march. Mall guards set up tape and fencing to control the crowd. They kept order but it was not always easy. Occasionally a few jumped the queue. 'Do something! Don't just let them butt in!' one guard shouted to another near the MTR exit. Eight-year-old Emma Leeds thought it was 'amazing', despite a moment of panic when she was separated from her mother, Clare Leeds, 43. Taikoo Shing guards allowed about 10,000 people to be within the exhibition boundaries at one time. Organised by Swire Properties, the Chinese Dinosaur Fossils Exhibition in Cityplaza ends on July 31. Eight fossils - five from the Beijing Natural History Museum and three from Sichuan Zigong Dinosaur Museum - are on display.
