Dinosaurs have taken over the city!

Are you ready for some pre-historic fun?

Lincoln BIG are delighted to announce that a custom-built dinosaur attraction is returning to the City Centre this Easter.

From March 29th – April 14th there will be a range of dinosaur themed activities, events, and street dressing (including dinosaur footprints and five caged dinosaurs hidden around the city) to get everyone involved.

Get ready to unearth an amazing T-Rex fossil at our DinoDig site and say hello to the Dino Rangers & the baby Rex at the meet and greets. There will also be an amazing lifelike animatronic T-Rex at the Dino Paddock, but approach with caution…

Inspired by his son's love for dinosaurs, Ben Webb (Managing Director at Place Immersive and Founder of DinoDig) wanted to create a pop-up event space that was fun, inspirational and unique. He designed the attraction to have something for children of all ages to enjoy.

Ben added:


I think the fossil pit will be popular and we’re providing small wooden brushes for the guests to unearth our impressive complete T-Rex fossil. We’ve also got some fun face-hole photo boards and we’d love guests to tag us in their pictures using @dinodiguk #dinodig! We’re hugely excited to be debuting this pop-up attraction in Lincoln and we can’t wait to see guests enjoying a truly immersive experience.

There are also 5 caged dinosaurs located in the city… can you find them all?

As well as the main attaction of the Cornhill, there will be additional activity across the Easter holidays

  • Meet Pete the T-Rex - Waterside Shopping Centre, Saturday 30th & Wednesday 10th April - 10am - 2pm
  • Lush 'Make & Take' Workshop - Cornhill, Thursday 4th & Wednesday 10th April - 11am - 1pm (limited availability)
