Marwell Zoo in Hampshire will be home to dozens of new species, as it becomes the first attraction in the world to host a brand new collection of superized toy brick creatures in 2020.
SUPERSIZED! An astonishing larger than life brick adventure will feature up to 40 models of curious real-life creatures with an explosion of colour and size.
The event will be on display at the zoo from 4 April to 3 September 2020, starting with 30 sculptures of various sizes in 16 locations around the park, and more models arriving throughout the summer.
Following the ROARing success of BRICKOSAURS! in 2019, the brand new immersive adventure has been created with more than two million toy bricks and will include some of the deadliest and most deceptive creatures in the world, all blown up to enormous proportions.
From sneaky predators such as the fearless honey badger and venomous blue-ringed octopus to the aptly named assassin bug, all creatures have been chosen for their colourful appearance in nature, unusual natural abilities and because they can be magnified to an eye-popping size.
Other highlights include a three metre tarantula and a towering two metre spitting cobra.
But are these fearsome creatures what they seem? Guests can follow the trail to discover more about each species and break the myth of these often-misunderstood creatures.
Continuing the interactive theme, guests visiting the park will be able to play games, build their own models, create toy brick graffiti and find out how the expert model makers use tiny toy bricks to build the eyes of these huge creatures.
Brand new additions to the event will be introduced in May with a deep-sea themed area that for the first time will include moving and lit displays, followed by a new UV toy brick experience for the summer holidays.
SUPERSIZED! will be included with general admission. Zoo ticket prices cost from £18 per child (3-16 years) and £22 per adult, which include an optional donation. Children aged 2 and under go free and every penny spent at Marwell helps the charity support the zoo and its conservation projects in the UK and overseas.
Marwell Zoo, home to more than 140 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.
