Queensgate Shopping Centre brought the magic of dinosaurs to life recently as hundreds of families descended on the centre to enjoy prehistoric adventures and fun.


The free Dino-Gate event saw an 8ft tall T-Rex stomp and roar through the centre much to the delight of excited children – and adults! Dino-Gate put on activities to explore and take part in a including a dino-dig for fossils, stories from adventurer Terry Dactyl plus a hunt around the centre for the missing words, and the chance to win an incredible prize.

The fossil hunt continues throughout August so there’s still plenty of fun at the centre to occupy the kids.


“The reaction from the children and parents was fantastic and response has been really positive,” said interim Marketing Manager, Alice Watkinson. “The activities were great for little ones to play with, learn about dinosaurs, and interact. Plus, the fossil hunt continues throughout the whole of August and is free for everyone to enjoy.”


Shoppers can collect an activity sheet from the Customer Information Desk, next to John Lewis, and search for the missing words scattered throughout Queensgate. One lucky winner will receive a VIP family trip to Gulliver’s Adventurers Village for an overnight stay plus free entry to the adventure parks in Milton Keynes.
