Kingdom Centre Digs Up Dinos


704dinoKingdom Shopping Centre has a sure thing for entertaining kids for their school holidays this summer: they’re sending them back in time to meet the dinosaurs.

The Kingdom Dino Experience offers some scary-cool fun for school kids. There are fantastic photo opportunities inside the rib cage or jaws of a dino. There are also great workshop activities, including a chance to outrun a T Rex with Fife Active Schools, Storytelling & Singing with Rothes Halls Library, a mini-zoo put together by Fife Animal Park and chance to make a Pterodactyl kite with The Ecology Centre, Kinghorn.

There’s also Dino cinema to enjoy in association with the Kino Cinema, and dino-based competitions throughout the mall.

But for the first two weeks of July, shoppers can enjoy a free extra-special workshop called The Kingdom Dig. Developed and delivered by the Edinburgh International Science Festival, this exclusive workshop will only be available in the Kingdom Shopping Centre and at the Science Festival in Abu Dhabi this year. It gives kids aged 5 – 10 the chance to see what life is like for real palaeontologists, uncovering history by digging up a dinosaur.

“The dinosaur dig is a fantastic adventure for the whole family and gives children the opportunity to learn about the techniques and tools scientists use to dig for bones and fossils,” said a representative of the Edinburgh International Science Festival team. “We are delighted to be presenting this hugely popular workshop in Glenrothes as part of the Kingdom Dino Experience.”

The center also held a contest for a private children’s party in dinoland. The Primary 3 class at Carelton Primary School gets their very own private party in the Kingdom Dino Dig workshop, where they’ll learn all about the dinosaurs, make a fossil that they can take home and dig up and uncover a dinosaur.

“We are thrilled to be offering such a unique experience for the children of Fife and across Scotland,” Robert Winter, the center’s manager. “There are workshops available for all ages – allowing the whole family to be involved. This special event is set to put the Kingdom Shopping Centre on the map.”
