Last week we were invite to visit the Great Brick Safari an Interactive Experience with LEGO® Bricks, at Marwell Wildlife. We were keen to see the new lemur loop enclosure too, however the weather was a little pants to the lemurs decided to stay indoors! The walk through is really impressive and I look forward to catching a glimpse of the cheeky lemurs outside next time.
The Great Brick Safari comprises of over 2 million bricks creating over 80 stunning sculptures representing 25 different species by LEGO® Bricks building company Bright Bricks. Sculptures include bats hanging from the shelters at the Leopards and a 1.5 tonne elephant, a life size Bengal tiger and a trio of Giant panda cubs. Other sculptures will be inspired by Marwell Wildlife's diverse collection of animals, with a red ruffed lemur, a warthog and a mob of meerkats all featuring on the trail.
On entrance you are provided with a map and a tick list to make sure you see all the sculptures. Having said that we still missed the pandas! But what we did find was the marquee full of LEGO® Bricks based activities including a pit which Olive really wanted to dive in! But I managed to persuade her to build an elephant instead.
It took him ages, but Charlie built a segment of python as part of the world record breaking attempt to build the longest LEGO® Bricks python.
Took ages but Charlie was determined to make a section for @marwellzoo record breaking attempt to make the longest @lego_group snake ???????????? Not only is the #GreatBrickSafari totally amazing (I've put my order in with the kids for a Lego tiger cub for my living room ???????? ) but there is a large marque with lots of lego based activities which given the rain ☔ based summer holiday weather is much needed ???????? #marwellzoo #brightbricks #Lego #wildlife #visithampshire @visit_hampshire @hantstopdaysout #daysoutwithkids #ukdaysout @daysoutwiththekids #dowtk #myfamilyadventures #mummyblogger
Megan (9) : I loved looking at all the different LEGO® Bricks animals. My favourite was the lion and cubs at the start. I especially liked the cubs they were so cute pretending to play. They reminded me of my new kitten Alice. I also liked the warthog because it had lots of detail. I liked the elephant too, because his trunk was in the air like he was trumpeting. I liked the details of how many people, hours, weight and LEGO® Bricks each sculpture took.
Olive (6) : I loved it! My favourite is the sitting down LEGO® Bricks giraffe and the big tiger.
Marwell Wildlife park is such a great day out and I love how the team are always adding creative things to enjoy along the way. A few years back we enjoyed The Rise of the Dinosuars animatronics trail including spitting raptor. I can't wait for the new Tropical House.
