BRICKOSAURS! Evolution at Marwell Zoo

Marwell Zoo unveils a world-first event featuring an all-new collection of 55 dinosaur sculptures – open to the public from 1 April to 4 September.

BRICKOSAURS! Evolution showcases over 20 species made using more than 2 million toy bricks and leaves adventurers in awe as they embark on an immersive journey through the zoo.

The interactive expedition, which is on display alongside the zoo’s hundreds of resident endangered and exotic animals, will excite families, brick and dinosaur enthusiasts alike.

Visitors go back in time and come face to face with amazing pre-historic creatures such as the incredible seven metre long Spinosaurus, a nodding Heterodontosaurus and a huge Mosasaur emerging from the water.

Enthusiasts can test their knowledge along the trail with a host of fascinating dino facts and build stats at every turn.

There are plenty of photo opportunities too, including a sit-in Carnotaurus, a giant dino egg and the chance to get up close to nine adorable baby dinosaurs.

At the Fossil Zone, kids both big and small can literally walk in their favourite dinosaurs’ footsteps on the fossil pavement, plus prepare for a few surprises!

These incredible sculptures, on display around the beautiful 140 acre park are immersive, educational and bursting with colour.

The event took professional builders at the Hampshire-based workshop of Bricklive International more than 9,000 hours to complete.

Sean Mannie, Commercial Director at Marwell Zoo, said: “We’re incredibly excited to announce that dinosaurs will once again be returning to Marwell Zoo with the all-new collection, BRICKOSAURS! Evolution next year, which also marks Marwell’s 50th anniversary.

“I have no doubt BRICKOSAURS! Evolution will make Marwell a ‘must-see’ family day out for 2022 as families look for exciting new adventures to share, and we’ll be unveiling more details soon so watch this space!”

The event follows the roaring success of toy brick adventure BRICKOSAURS! In 2019 and SUPERSIZED! in 2020.

BRICKOSAURS! Evolution is included with general admission to the zoo. Marwell offers visitors the opportunity to get up close to amazing members of the animal kingdom from Amur tigers to towering Rothschild’s giraffes in 140-acres of beautiful, spacious parkland. Conservation charity Marwell Wildlife owns and operates the zoo, so every penny spent at the zoo supports amazing projects to conserve habitats and species both in Hampshire and around the world.
