It was a very peculiar sight to see a massive colourful dinosaur making its way through The Square! People were stopping in their tracks, doing a double-take before getting out their phones to take a picture! Kids were absolutely delighted, cyclists stopped in their tracks and even a bus driver pulled over to pop out of his bus to take a selfie with the dinosaur!
We’re so pleased Vigo the Velociraptor raised so many smiles on his way to us at the zoo. When an event opens for the first time, I love to see our guests’ reactions; it’s the most satisfying part of anything we do so it’s amazing the dinosaurs are already the talk of the town! “BRICKOSAURS is the biggest event the park has ever put on, and it’s a world exclusive, so it’s pretty epic in our books.
Taking Vigo the Velociraptor on an open trailer from our workshop in Bordon to Marwell Zoo was a first for Bright Bricks. It was amazing to see people’s reactions to a brick-built dinosaur and we had a lot of questions from the public! We hope everyone who spotted Vigo enjoyed the experience. They can look forward to a whole lot more when they visit Marwell Zoo.
BRICKOSAURS is included with general admission and will be on display from 5 April until 1 September 2019.
