World’s biggest chocolate egg hunt coming to Southport’s DinoTown this Easter

Families will have the chance to win one of eight giant chocolate eggs by taking on the Dinormous Egg Hunt during the Easter holidays.

The one-of-a-kind Egg Hunt will feature some of the largest chocolate eggs ever made.  Gigantic, dinosaur-themed treats will be hidden in locations around Southport.

The activity is part of DinoTown Southport, which will see brick-built dinosaurs and free, themed activities taking place in the town centre between 29 March – 14 April.

Using an activity map, Dino Rangers will be tasked with finding the eggs and completing a fun competition.  If that wasn’t enough, six lucky entrants will be chosen at random to win a Dinormous egg to take home.

The super-sized chocolates stand at 3ft tall and weigh in at a whopping 25kg!

Southport-based confectioners Chocolate Whirled were tasked with creating the eggs, which were made primary from Belgian milk chocolate and marbled using white and dark chocolate.

Each egg took 12 hours to assemble, with a minimum of two people being required to move the gigantic treats.  The dinosaur characters were created using coloured cocoa butter and the butterflies were made using wafer paper.

There will also be an extra two eggs available to win at Ocean Plaza, where Vue Cinema and Matalan will host Mini Dino Egg Hunts.  This will be a bitesize activity, with a number of smaller eggs to be discovered at both locations.

DinoTown Southport, which is being organised by Southport BID (Business Improvement District), will see a range of free activities taking place across the town centre over the Easter holidays. 

During the BRICKOSAURS exhibition, visitors will get the chance to come face-to-face with fifteen brick-built dinosaurs, made using over 550,000 toy bricks.

The models include a pair of colossal Velociraptors, a club-tailed Ankylosaur, and a majestic Pteranodon in mid-flight.  Not forgetting the vibrant green Parasaurolophus, which is constructed of over 110,00 bricks alone!
