In fact, Jurassic World is the largest LEGO experience in Australian history; the Brickman exhibition has been two years in the making and uses more than 6 million bricks. There’s also another 2.5 million bricks for visitors to play with!

Jurassic World Brickman Lego Entrance

We are invited to the event premiere of the Melbourne Jurassic World exhibition, where The Brickman leads delighted children through the exhibits like Willy Wonka or the Pied Piper, revealing the staggering number of hours and bricks involved in the exhibition.

We begin at the iconic four-metre tall Jurassic World gates, then make our way to the lab where dinosaurs are genetically engineered. Here, visitors can mix parts from raptors and rexes to create their own hybrid dinosaurs.

There’s also a collaborative LEGO project that involves copying a pattern onto a 6×6 board, with every square being different. When you finish your square, you find the correct coordinates on the wall and put it into position. As more and more people visit, the artwork will be revealed. This is a clear highlight for the older kids at the event premiere.

We venture into the baby dinosaur enclosure, where we are greeted by a life-size Brachiosaurus weighing more than three tonnes! This gigantic dinosaur actually needs a steel frame inside to keep her stable.

She’s made from Duplo, which Brickman explains is a great way of creating large-scale models that can then be detailed with Lego.

Jurassic World Lego Building Station

There’s a footprint-building challenge that gives visitors the opportunity to race each other and the clock.

And then we reach the velociraptors. Delta and Blue are phenomenally detailed and life-like, and the kids love them.
