The Big Dinosaur takeover

Open Today

09:30 - 19:00

This summer the Big Dinosaur takeover lands at Surrey Quays Shopping!

Join us every Thursday from 9th to 30th August from noon to 5pm for an imaginative journey into the prehistoric past. Best of all, it’s free!

Thursday 9th August – Jurassic Explorers
A fully immersive theatrical event - perfect for kids who love dressing up. Kids will become Dino explorers. Armed with a magnifying glass and explorer’s hat they’ll journey back to the land of the dinosaurs, eventually discovering a giant dinosaur egg in Surrey Quays! 

Thursday 16th August – Dino school
This might be school, but not as we know it. Kids will love hanging out with our Palaeontology Professors whose lessons are fun and entertaining. Professor T-Rex will lead with a fact-filled lesson learning about what dinosaurs love to eat and giving kids tips on how to escape from a rampaging raptor!

Thursday 23rd August – Jurassic News
TV reporter, Velocity Raptor will run a story for the Jurassic News. Velocity and her TV crew will interview the kids to find out about their thoughts on the discovery of a giant thought-to-be extinct dinosaur egg. Oh no! It's cracked, but where is the baby?

Thursday 30th August – Dino Takeover
Denzel the Dino is alive and roaming in Surrey Quays Shopping Centre, on the lookout for the baby dinosaur. But don’t worry, Denzel’s not like most Dinosaurs: he’s really very friendly and loves meeting families. 

Come and be part of the story. It takes place every Thursday from 9th to 30th August, 12 noon to 5pm outside The Range.

Can’t make it in on a Thursday? Fear not, as we have plenty for everyone to get involved in every day.

Visit our dinosaur exhibition outside The Range, meet our Allosaurus and take a roarsome selfie.  Then find out how big a T-Rex’s footprint really is in our fossilised footprint trail.  You’ll discover life-size footprints, replica dinosaur bones and have the chance to answer lots of fun questions and read about educational facts. Complete the trail sheet for a chance to win fun days out at Surrey Quays Leisure and a Jurassic World Lego Set. 

Pick up a trail sheet from the Dinosaur Exhibition outside The Range.
