Journey back in time as the Grand Arcade positively turns prehistoric this Easter with the arrival of a herd of full-sized animatronic dinosaurs.
Touring the center from Saturday, April 1, to Sunday, April 16, are the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex and the amazing Stegosaurus, the terrifying Velociraptor, the Pteranodon, Carnourus and Coelophysis.
The dinosaurs – who last invaded the Grand Arcade in 2021 – are back due to popular demand for the Easter Fair.
Dino fans can pick up a free Jurassic Trail map to guide them through 250 million years of natural history, as they encounter oversized species on all floors of the mall.
They’re promised far from the fantastic dinosaur facts that accompany each exhibit on the panels, created with the help of the Sedgwick Museum.
In the spirit of Easter, there will also be an egg hunt, but not of the chocolate variety. Alternatively, adventure enthusiasts are welcome to search the Jurassic Trail for a selection of massive dinosaur eggs.
Children from six local schools – Impington Village College, North Cambridge Academy, Sancton Wood, St Mary’s School, The Leys, and Trumpington Community College – were challenged to create cracker designs for old eggs.
Julie Kervadic, Marketing Director, Grand Arcade, said: “We are thrilled to bring Jurassic Arcade back to Cambridge. Dinosaur eggs and impressive giant animatronics will be on display for over two weeks.
“This year, we made it extra special by partnering with our neighbours, the Sedgwick Museum, and with local schools who will be displaying ‘Prehistoric Designs’ at our centre.”

Victoria Hearn, Principal of Impington Village College, added: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to participate in Grand Prix’s Jurassic Arcade Competition; Ensuring that our students have the opportunity to be part of the wider Cambridge community is very important to us at Impington.
“Our talented students have created some ‘disturbing’ designs as part of the brainstorming process, and I am very much looking forward to seeing their ideas come to life, and for the Cambridge audience to see them on display in the heart of the city via Easter Break.”
