Ultimate Brick Safari opens today at Knowsley Safari

The Ultimate Brick Safari opens today at Knowsley Safari, bringing 80 LEGO statues of animals to the zoological attraction.

Visitors to Knowsley Safari, near Liverpool, UK, get an extra brick bonus starting today. Until September 2, Ultimate Brick Safari will be on display at the attraction, featuring 80 life-sized LEGO animal sculptures in a special walk through exhibit.

The display was created by former LEGO approved professional building organisation Bright Bricks, travelling to zoos around the world. It took over a million bricks to put the entire collection of animals together, with 270,000 used just for the elephant. Duting their exploration of the trail, guests sill find bengal tigers, gorillas, lions and kangaroos among others.
