As part of the prehistoric experience, a collection of life-sized dinosaurs will join animals at Marwell Zoo in 2019.

The zoo is said to become the first attraction in the world to host the collection of giant LEGO® brick dinosaurs, which will be created using more than two million bricks.

Intended to appeal to everyone from families, to LEGO® and dinosaur enthusiasts, the interactive expedition will see a total of 50 life-sized sculptures arrive at the Hampshire based zoo.

The arrival of the Brickosaurs

In 2017, Marwell Zoo became the first zoo to host The Great Brick Safari, featuring 80 LEGO® animal sculptures.

The Brickosaurs will be on display from 5th April until 1st September and will be included with general admission.

A highlight of the prehistoric-themed event will be an eight-metre T-Rex, which is believed to be the largest touring LEGO® brick dinosaur model ever made.

Other models will include velociraptors and a stegosaurus, also made from LEGO® bricks.

Extra-activities will complement the display, giving groups the chance to try their hand at making their own creations at the Brickosaurs Basecamp, or enjoy a free spotter’s guide.

Sean Mannie, commercial director, said: “We are incredibly excited to be hosting the amazing Brickosaurs at Marwell Zoo. Building on the tremendous success of The Great Brick Safari in 2017, Brickosaurs will be a genuine world-first and on a scale never attempted before with LEGO® bricks.

“This will be a really jaw-dropping family experience with fantastic displays all over our 140-acre park.

“Alongside our world-class animal experiences, including our amazing new Tropical House, Brickosaurs will make Marwell Zoo the ‘must-see’ family day out for 2019 and we’re absolutely delighted that our Marwell guests will see it first.”
