Gold Coast theme park, Dreamworld, is set to welcome the Lego Brickman Awesome exhibition to its portfolio of attractions.
The exhibition will showcase 39 exclusive Lego models, including the tallest Lego model in the Southern Hemisphere a NASA SLS rocket which stands at 7.5 metres tall.
The exhibition will complement the Lego store at the theme park and will feature five interactive tables. Visitors will be able to help build the largest Lego snake mosaic wall in Australia.
General Manager of marketing at Dreamworld, Philip Hancox, said that the new attraction represents an Australian-first.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of this new attraction coming soon to Dreamworld, which will be the first time this impressive Lego brick exhibition has been on display at an Australian theme park.
“The Brickman Awesome exhibition is about all things amazing, unique, record-breaking or just plain awesome – and we can’t wait to offer our guests another experience that will transport them into a world of awe and wonder.”
Australia's own Lego certified professional, Ryan 'The Brickman' McNaught, said that the exhibition will also showcase other life-sized models.
“The exhibition will also feature one of our biggest ever builds – a life-sized Lego Toyota Camry with working lights. [It will also] showcase the only life-sized Lego Harley Davidson ever made and so much more.”
Hancox said that the exhibition echoes the feelings of fun, nostalgia and adventure people experience at Dreamworld.
“A small block, and a small idea that first started in the 1930’s, has quickly become a familiar staple in any child’s toy box, which instils the development of creativity while fostering imagination.
“This is what a theme park represents – fun, nostalgia and a place of adventure, so we’re building on this one brick at a time.”
The exhibition will open at Dreamworld on 14 September and will run until 14 October.
