The Great Big Brick Safari

28th March - 1st September 2020

For 5 months from the end of March 2020, Paignton Zoo will be home to over 80 giant wild animal models made from over 1 million LEGO® bricks! From a giant gorilla, a jumbo size elephant and a majestic lion, to marvellous macaws, beautiful butterflies and a cool crocodile, these stunning LEGO® brick animals will form The Great Big Brick Safari Trail for visitors to follow around the zoo.

The Great Big Brick Safari runs from Saturday 28th March until Tuesday 1st September 2020

Brick Amnesty
The Great Big Brick Safari will also feature a fun Interactive Zone, including brick pits so you can create your own masterpieces!

Paignton Zoo in partnership with Radio Exe, are currently running an appeal for unwanted plastic toy building bricks and will happily accept any brand of plastic toy brick. And once the event is over, they’ll donate the bricks on to play groups, schools, scout/guide groups, etc.

So if you have some plastic toy bricks that you don’t want, you can drop them off here at Guildhall Shopping & Dining on any of the dates below where we will be joined by Radio Exe in Market Square. Paignton Zoo will then sort them and wash them ready for the start of The Great Big Brick Safari.

Anyone who donates bricks, will be entered into a draw to win one of 5 annual saver passes to Paignton Zoo, Living Coast and Newquay Zoo!
