Dinosaurs ready to take over Touchwood

Sarah Mason 29th May, 2022

DINOSAUR hunters are being invited to find the prehistoric creatures at Touchwood in Solihull this half term.

Velociraptors, Triceratops and T-rexs will be among the six life-sized creatures to discover lurking within the Arcades and Theatre Square on the Dinosaur Discovery Trail.

Until June 19 shoppers will learn about the different dinosaurs and the earth during the prehistoric era as part of the trail, and of course, dino fans will be thrilled to come face-to-face with some rawr-some dinosaurs

Tread carefully as you follow the trail and keep watch for a Velociraptor, T-rex, Triceratops, Dilophosaurus, baby Brachiosaurus and a Ptarydactyl.

Dinosaur Trail maps can be collected from the information desk on Crescent Arcade.

Lucy Burnett, marketing manager at Touchwood, said: “This is the first time we have had dinosaurs at Touchwood and I’m sure they will be a big hit with the children – and grown-ups too.

“There will be plenty to learn and some great selfie opportunities too.

“We’ve had some fantastic new food concepts opened within the centre this month so it’s the perfect opportunity to make a real day out for all the family.”
