Dexter the Dinosaurs' visit to the Swan Centre

To celebrate the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ahead of Father’s Day (which is on Sunday 17 June) A very special and very large guest visited the Swan Centre.

On Saturday 9 June Dexter, a 4.5m baby T Rex, prowled the malls to the delight of shoppers who had come to enjoy a day of dinosaur entertainment and shopping before heading off to see the movie at Vue. 

Swan Centre Manager Daniel Kitchen said “Dexter the Dinosaur was amazing, and it certainly created a buzz for both our younger and older visitors. My son Finn loved Dexter and said “it was the best day ever!” Vue saw a fantastic turn out for the opening weekend of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Younger visitors enjoyed storey time with some of Dexters’ slightly smaller friends too and took part in the dinky dino lucky dip to win dinosaur toys during the family fun day. 

Families were also able to take part in a photo with a dinosaur competition where shoppers were given the chance to win a movie merchandise bundle and 4 VIP movie tickets so that one lucky customer can treat dad to a night at the movies for Father’s Day.
