This 13th November onward, Singapore’s wildlife parks—Singapore Zoo and River Wonders—will host Brickosaurs World in the first-ever showcase in Asia featuring more than 60 life- sized dinosaurs. The event also features on immersive maze of hidden clues and puzzles which will create on interactive playground for explorers to get lost in archaeological wonders. The pre-historic terrestrial vertebrates will come to life using 1.5 million LEGO bricks constructed over a period of 8,548 hours.
“As a species, dinosaurs are awe-inspiring and possess an evergreen appeal amongst so many generations of children and adults”, said Irene Lin, Chief Marketing Officer, Mandai Wildlife Group. “This fascination creates opportunities for impactful community engagement about mass extinctions. In partnering Bricklive!, we are able to relive the age of the dinosaurs and reflect on the future of our planet which is facing serious threats from factors like climate change. Every action now, to protect our world, counts.”
Visitors to both parks located at Mandai Wildlife Reserve will come close to phenomenal brick displays which range from a massive T-Rex to the mighty plesiosaurs to tiny raptors on interactive digital trails. The Brickosaurs on these self-guided trails will lead explorers on journeys to discover animals on the brink of extinction, what can be done to save them and highlight the importance of actions to conserve the wildlife and biodiversity that exist today.
In a first by The LEGO Group, an outdoor LEGO pop-up store will be set up at Singapore Zoo’s Pavilion by the Lake. Visitors can redeem an exclusive LEGO Minifigure which are complimentary with every child admission ticket. Families can be inspired by unique diorama displays and then build their very own creations at LEGO Playtables.
