Since the initial launch in April, they have been adding new BRICKOSAURS throughout the zoo, so we headed back to see if we could find them all.
We arrived on a beautiful sunny and warm day, but were soon greeted by a huge storm cloud and rumbles of thunder, so we took cover in the penguin house and watched as they danced in the rain.
Thankfully the shower disappeared almost as quickly as it arrived and we set of on our dinosaur hunt.
Marwell Zoo is a walking safari around a huge 140 acre park with something to see and do around every corner.
We enjoy walking around the zoo, however, there is a land train to help you get around if you need it.
To help persuade the kids to walk, there are also 5 adventure playgrounds to enjoy, plus a miniature railway which runs around the middle of the zoo.
By Marwell House, you will find the largest touring LEGO brick dinosaur model ever made – a whopping eight-metre Tyrannosaurus rex and Sebby was over the moon to find a new addition – a baby T-Rex.
There is also the “Find Colin” challenge.
Colin is one of our Compsognathus BRICKOSAURS! who is hiding somewhere in the zoo. This very cheeky little dinosaur is getting up to lots of mischief, but where is he? If you find him, take a photo and share on social media using the hashtag #colinsontherun
We really enjoyed having a mix of animals and BRICKOSAURS to find and the changeable weather seemed to bring all the animals out to see us.
The kids were most amused by one of the tigers having a bath.
And one of the Leopard’s was happily rolling around in the dirt.
Sebby was brilliant at identifying all the BRICKOSAURS, although there are also handy plaques by each one, with fun facts about the creature and how many bricks were used to build it.
There are over 50 BRICKOSAURS to find around the zoo, with some easier to spot than others.
BRICKOSAURS and a selection of extra activities are included with general admission at Marwell Zoo. and will be running until 1st September 2019, so that visitors can get closer to the wonders of the natural world and the prehistoric world, all in one place.
A standard family ticket for Marwell Zoo costs £64.75, excluding the optional donation.
