82 lifesize LEGO® brick models have JUST arrived at Knowsley Safari! It's the Ultimate Brick Safari and it will be the UK’s biggest EVER LEGO brick safari. They're here until 2nd September and all are on show on the Foot Safari! To join in the fun simply book your tickets to Knowsley Safari between 20th July and 2nd September 2019. It's all included in the price!

This week two 40ft articulated lorries and one small van arrived on safari. Early in the morning, we were able to get a first look at the brick models we've all been so excited for, and now they're FINALLY HERE!

All 82 models, made from over 1 million bricks will be built, assembled and carefully placed across the Foot Safari, ready for the launch on Saturday 20th July!

The first LEGO® brick model you'll come across is Gorman the gorilla! We've placed him front and centre at the entrance to the Foot Safari, ready to greet guests with a handsome hello!

He's lifesize, made from 33,000 bricks, took 4 builders to create in over 480 hours, and weighs a whopping 186.5kg!

 

The LEGO brick collection includes Tenzin the Tiger, a towering life-size Bengal tiger constructed from around 85,000 bricks and Earl Grey the Elephant, which weighs 1.2 tonnes and took a team of  builders over nine weeks to create using more than 270,000 bricks.

Other highlights include a very proud lion called Linus, as well as Poppa and Pippin the Penguins; Ludo, Leo and Lily Lion Cubs and Anthony the Antelope.

The life-size brick animals will join the real animals including our Amur Tigers, giraffes, meerkats, bush dogs and wolves at Knowsley’s Foot Safari - and visitors can also choose to enjoy the Safari Drive with its lions, rhinos, bison, zebra, deer, baboons and more.
