Five life-size model dinosaurs are fascinating visitors young and old at Bournemouth’s Castlepoint Shopping Park. A 20ft postosuchus, 10ft giant raptor, 5ft velociraptor, 6ft triceratops and a 7ft stegosaurus arrived on 4 April and will be staying until the 20 April.
Over the Easter holidays there will be activities including a competition to find the baby dinosaurs on the fun dino hunt trail, dino crafts where children can make their own fossil or face mask, and interactive play sessions. An animated velociraptor will also stalk and scare shoppers on Saturday 19 April.
Castlepoints management expects to attract more visitors following the success of films including ‘Walking with Dinosaurs’ and the BBC series. General Manager Peter Matthews dressed as an explorer character to launch the new attractions as the shopping park turns into Bournemouth’s Jurassic Park.
