Jurassic World by Brickman®



Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught will unveil an epic, world-first exhibition at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) this April that transforms Jurassic World – the blockbuster franchise from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment – into an immersive must-do adventure that will be the largest LEGO® experience in Australian history.

Over 50 large-scale dinosaurs, props, scenes and activities made from over 6 million LEGO® bricks will leave explorers in awe as they embark on a thrilling journey through stories and characters from the Jurassic World franchise, from discovering Isla Nublar, to the science labs of the Park, petting zoo and even posing with dinosaurs both friendly and menacing – all from the safety of the MCEC, which will operate with a commitment to a COVID safe environment.

Visitors to Jurassic World by Brickman® begin by walking through the iconic 4-metre-tall Jurassic World gates to experience the island itself, then the inner workings of the Jurassic World lab, where dinosaurs are genetically engineered. Explorers will then venture to the baby dinosaur enclosure, where a life size LEGO® brick Brachiosaurus awaits that weighs well over 2 tons! Learn how to track dinosaurs across the island before encountering escaped Velociraptors Blue and Delta and, of course, an enormous T.rex – a favourite of many Jurassic World fans.

In the Jurassic World by Brickman® experience, LEGO® fanatics will have an opportunity to show off their own building skills. The hands on exhibition has a myriad of activities, from island building, LEGO® paleontology and discovery through mystery mosaics, hybrid dinosaur creation, learning to track a dinosaur by creating species footprints, and even building escape vehicles to get away from a T.rex. With 2.5 million bricks to play with, creativity will not be in short supply!
