The Juras­sic world was brought to life for shop­pers in Peter­bor­ough as di­nosaurs roamed in the city cen­tre for the first time in mil­lions of years.

The free Dino-Gate event on Satur­day and Sun­day saw an 8ft tall T-Rex stomp and roar through the Queens­gate cen­tre, en­ter­tain­ing chil­dren and adults alike.

Dino-Gate put on ac­tiv­i­ties to ex­plore and take part in, 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 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 Ad­ven­tur- ers Vil­lage for an overnight stay plus free en­try to the ad­ven­ture parks in

Mil­ton

Keynes.
