IT’S a scene you expect to find in Spielberg’s fictional Jurassic Park rather than your local zoo.

Next year Marwell will welcome the herd of tyrannosaurus-bricks to the zoo has part of a world-first collection.

The prehistoric Brickosaurs experience will feature 50 life-sized sculptures built with Lego bricks.

More than two million bricks will be used to create the interactive expedition, with one of the highlights of the new display being the giganti-saurus, eight-metre T-rex.

The model will be the largest touring Lego brick dinosaur model ever made – plus the zoo says they’ll be a few surprises to get prepared for.

Commercial director Sean Mannie 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.”

The new display is being created by Bordon-based Lego building company Bright Bricks, who say it will take their team of professional builders more than 10,000 hours to create the exclusive event.

Brickosaurs will be included with general admission and will be on display from April 5 until September 1, next year.

Visitors will also be able to get hands on with a host of extra activities including trying their hand at making their own creations at Brickosaurs Basecamp, to ensure the day out is not a dino-bore.

As previously reported, Marwell Zoo became the first zoo to host The Great Brick Safari last year, featuring 80 Lego animal sculptures.

Marwell Zoo, home to more than 150 species, is owned by Marwell Wildlife, a global conservation charity leading programmes in the UK, Africa and across the world.

The charity engages with over 40,000 schoolchildren through curriculum-based education programmes and welcomes more than 500,000 visitors each year to its 140 acre site.
