April 2020 will see an exciting new addition at Marwell Zoo… the world exclusive toy brick event: SUPERSIZED! 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. Follow the trail to discover more about each species and break the myth of these often-misunderstood creatures. The larger than life brick adventure features up to 40 astonishing models of real-life creatures with an explosion of colour and size. 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. Guests will also be able to play games, build their own models and create toy brick graffiti. The creative geniuses at BRICKLIVE say it will take their team of professional builders more than 10,000 hours to create the exclusive event. The event will be on display at the zoo from 4 April to 3 September 2020. SUPERSIZED! will be included with general admission. 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.
