A world-renowned LEGO brick exhibit that features over 45 iconic structures – some as tall as 3.6 metres – is set to open at Dreamworld these Easter school holidays.
The Brickman ‘Wonders of the World’ exhibit is a large-scale walk-through exhibition where guests can explore LEGO brick masterpieces, from iconic landmarks such as the Taj Mahal to world-famous tourist icons such as The Leaning Tower of Pisa and a giant Arc de Triomphe. Guests can expect to see models that will immerse them in history, send them into the future and even take them around the world, with no passport required.
Dreamworld chief operating officer, Greg Yong said he was blown away when he first saw the Brickman Wonders of the World exhibit.
“We know our guests are looking for new and exciting things to do on the Gold Coast with their family and friends so we can’t wait to showcase Brickman Wonders of the World these school holidays. These structures have to be seen to be believed, The Flying Scotsman, for example, has been made with more than 164 thousand brick pieces – now that’s a lot of LEGO,” Mr Yong said.
“The good news is this is free with your Dreamworld admission ticket so if you’re an annual pass holder or if you buy a day ticket it’s all included”.
While the finishing touches are being made to the Wonders of the World exhibit for its launch at Dreamworld on 27 March, Gold Coast twins Summer and Bailey Erceg were lucky to get a sneak peek of four of the structures.
“They’re truly amazing, I love the Taj Mahal it’s so unique and cool. I thought it was just the outside that was cool but there’s stuff inside the actual buildings as well,” Bailey said.
“I love the Volkswagen because if you go to the back you can see an engine and it actually looks like the real engine, it’s just amazing,” Summer said.
