Summer spectacular Great Brick Safari arrives at Woburn Safari Park!
Multiple dates from Friday, June 28th to Sunday, July 14th
Life-size animals made from over a million LEGO® bricks on display from 15th June – 14th July.
Woburn Safari Park already offers visitors the chance to embark on an unforgettable trip to the wild plains, jungles and savannahs of Africa, without leaving the country. But from 15th June to 14th July, the Bedfordshire Park will be calling all budding explorers to take an exhilarating tour of the Great Brick Safari, featuring life size LEGO® brick animals, which have moved in this summer.
After enjoying an amazing adventure through Woburn’s Road Safari to see magnificent lions, tigers, monkeys, giraffes and rhinos, visitors can head into the Foot Safari for an expedition that will have them seeking out the LEGO® brick models as an additional treat.
Over a million bricks have been used to create the models, which took over 7400 hours in total to build. Amongst the impressive LEGO® brick sculptures are an entire pride of lions, a proud antelope and a 1.2 ton elephant that took 1,600 hours to create from a whopping 271,739 LEGO® bricks!
Every model is also supported by a steel skeleton. If you could look inside a model, you’d see that the LEGO® bricks themselves run in criss-crossed lattices, so that they are semi-hollow and easier to move. The models will be transported on two 40ft articulated lorry trailers and forklifts and pump trucks are required to move them around. [behind the scenes images and videos attached]
Visitors will also have the chance to meet smaller creatures and critters including a mob of meerkats, a pair of macaws, a host of butterflies and a scorpion. Plus there’s a whole crèche of baby models in a special exhibit where you can marvel at the cutest creatures - all in LEGO® form.
The Great Brick Safari will see the park welcome some new species, including a gorilla, a crocodile, kangaroos and hyenas. Some of the brick models represent a number of Woburn Safari Park’s own resident species. Visitors should look out for an ostrich sculpture to celebrate the return of the species to the park and a lemur model to raise awareness of this beautiful and endangered animal.
Visitors will want to make use of their free Great Brick Safari Trail sheet, to take on the task of seeking out each of the LEGO® brick creations. Complete all the questions with the mystery clues to enter the prize draw to win a Bigfoot Safari Trail Day for up to 11 people, worth over £1,400!
Suitable for the whole family, this interactive safari experience is included in the price of your admission ticket.
Price: £16.99 (child 3-15 years) £23.00 (adult 16-59 year
