CC La Marina invaded by Dinosaurs with exciting new exhibition

CC La Marina has welcomed some new prehistoric visitors to the Shopping Centre and Retail Park with the arrival of their dinosaur exhibition in collaboration with Dino Park Algar.

Until the end of November, visitors of the Shopping Centre and Retail Park can explore a collection of prehistoric creatures and have their picture taken with T-Rex and friends for free with our life-like statues. The exhibition, which is in collaboration with Dino Park, a local dinosaur theme park which is located just a few kilometres from CC La Marina in the nearby town of Callosa d'en Sarrià, welcomes visitors of all ages to enjoy the characters which are dotted throughout the Shopping Centre and Retail Park. They even include the chance to step inside one of the cages - the perfect photo opportunity. 

As part of this exhibition, visitors to CC La Marina will also have the chance to win tickets to the Dino Park by undertaking activities such as uploading a picture of themselves on social media with one of the dinosaurs, not forgetting to tag @CCLaMarina. 

During the exhibition, there will be weekly raffles giving visitors the chance to bag free merchandise and tickets to the park. All visitors of the Shopping Centre and Retail Park will also get the chance to receive 15% off park tickets when mentioning that they are customers of CC La Marina at the Dino Park ticket office! 

Dino Park Algar is a very popular attraction with both residents and tourists as it offers an array of activities for families. These include life-size robotic dinosaurs, a 3D cinema, play areas and a botanical garden. Located in Callosa d'en Sarrià, Dino Park is also easily accessible by car and bus from Finestrat and surrounding towns. 

Gerry Martin of Resolute Asset Management comments, "Our partnership with Dino Park is a fantastic addition to La Marina Shopping Centre and Retail Park and has already shown to be incredibly popular with both children and adults. La Marina is very focused on building relationships with local attractions and businesses as we all work together to encourage tourists and residents back into the shops and leisure schemes following the pandemic. The dinosaurs have given the Centre a fantastic atmosphere with children running up to them as soon as they arrive.”

Hugo Fuster, Marketing Manager at Why Media comments. “I approached Dino Park last month to set up the collaboration in the interest of giving our visitors a fun installation to take pictures with and engage with but to also support one of the areas most popular attractions. The dinosaurs really do catch the eye of all visitors and this accompanied by ticket giveaways and discount tickets for all visiting La Marina Shopping Centre and Retail Park, it’s a fantastic, positive initiative that has definitely added new energy to the Centre.”

La Marina Shopping Centre is the main shopping and leisure complex in the Marina Baixa region.
