There is one event you MUST visit this summer, and that’s Lakeside Shopping Centre’s Dinosaur takeover extravaganza.
Opening on Saturday 17 July, it is set to be the most roar-some event of the year as shoppers take a step back in time to come face-to-face with life-sized creatures.
From a seven-metre-long Triceratops to a four metre-tall Carnotaurus, a deadly raptor cage and ride-on T-Rex, the pre-historic animals are taking over Lakeside to bring the thrills and excitement of the Jurassic period to the centre this summer.
The highlight is the traffic-stopping, 18 metres long, five metres tall, moving and roaring T-Rex, towering above the crowds on the Quay. Creating the perfect photo opportunity, the legendary beast opens its colossal jaw and roars to help capture the perfect pre-historic selfie smile.
The event of the summer, which is completely free for all, will invite shoppers to follow the trail and spot the many life-like monsters. Pick up a map from the central Atrium for free, think like an adventurer and follow the trail. Text the Dinosaurs a question, learn some dino-facts and create the perfect family-fun photo.
With moving parts and interactive rides, plus a merchandise shop, Lakeside’s dinosaur takeover is the place to be from 17 July until 31 August.
