Howard Oldstein, centre director at Lakeside, said: “This event is bigger and better we could have imagined! The look on people’s faces when they see the life-sized T-Rex is fantastic!”
The colossal dinosaurs and super-fun rides will be located around Lakeside Shopping Centre, with visitors encouraged to head to The Quay, the Central Atrium, Level 1 by Waterstones and House of Fraser, and Level 2 outside Kanoo and M&S on their adventures.
