the dino’s are coming to blue route mall
The thrilling Dinos Alive exhibition is coming to Blue Route Mall, a first for the Southern Suburbs, to showcase its astounding collection of animatronic dinosaurs. The exhibition will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 20 April until 3 June at Blue Route Mall.
Dinos Alive tells the story of dinosaurs from the Mesozoic Era, from approximately 250 million years ago.
Featuring 17 animatronic dinosaurs that can move their limbs, blink and emit lifelike sounds, this educational showcase is not only fun for the whole family but educational too. Plus two augmented reality dinosaurs will be on show!
This exhibition offers real value for money and an unforgettable encounter with these prehistoric ‘creatures’.
Mall visitors can expect to see the familiar faces like the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops. If you’re a dinosaur lover, you’ll be able to spot more obscure names like the Spinosaurus and Ankylosaurus on show too.
Even if you aren’t that clued up on dinosaur trivia, there is ample information available all around the exhibition on information boards. These boards explain the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods in full detail in a fun and interactive way.
The children can really get up close and personal with the Apatosaurus and go for a ride on his back as well as that of the T-Rex, or become any dinosaur they want to be at the face painting station. If it is realism that they are after, take them to the excavation fossil pit where they can get their hands dirty digging up the ‘real’ bones of these ancient animals.
New elements at the exhibition include the Dino Tablet games, Timmy the baby Dinosaur, the Dino Ranger Badges for the kids, an awesome jungle jumping castle, drawing tables and a selfie egg!
The experience will be just as fun for the adults as it is for the children with the Dino movie area and fossil display that the grown-ups can really get stuck into. The animatronic dinosaurs are always a hit across the board because even as an adult coming eye to eye with these majestic beasts is exciting.
Finally, pop by the Dinos Alive merchandise shop and buy a souvenir to bring home.
In short, there’s plenty to keep kids distracted , it goes without saying that this is a dino lover’s wonderland. MEET THE DINOS at Blue Route Mall

exciting new developments taking place
In keeping with its commitment to offering customers the ultimate in retail experiences, Blue Route Mall will soon be welcoming a number of new tenants to the centre, promising shoppers more choice than ever before.
To begin with, fast-casual dining favourite Burger King will soon be coming to the food court, while popular gifting venue, The Crazy Store, will be opening its doors next to Sportscene on the first floor. Tekkie Town will be launching their newest store next to The Fix, while FNB’s new smaller branch is currently under development, with FNB trading out of their mobile bank next to Entrance 1 until all preparations are complete.
The decrease in the size of the FNB branch will allow a larger Totalsports store to open in the mall, with Totalsports relocating next to FNB as a result. Not only will Totalsports be taking up part of the old FNB branch, it will be taking over the spaces previously occupied by Gadget Time and Ralo Cosmetics as well, allowing for a bigger and better Totalsports experience.
Similarly, Due South will also be enlarging its premises, while Archive will be introduced to the tenant mix, and Gadget Time will be moving to a larger space next to Tribakery.
While the number of wallpapered shopfronts may seem to indicate vacancies or store closures, in fact the opposite is true. The growing tenant mix at Blue Route Mall promises a wealth of choice and excitement thanks to the diverse range of new stores, redevelopments and movements planned for 2018. With more to look forward to than ever, Blue Route Mall is further cementing its position as a retail venue of choice, giving customers a quality shopping experience unlike any other.
