Venue: Dick Institute, Kilmarnock
Bricktropolis is an interactive LEGO® brick show that towers over the competition with over 20 stunning models of world landmark towers and buildings each with an awe inspiring scale that’s never been seen in Scotland before.
*Please check website for times and booking slots*
Visitors can experience the history of human endeavour in the built environment, taking them from Stonehenge through to the landmarks of Kilmarnock, London and New York and on to the glittering skyscrapers of Shanghai and Dubai.
As you walk amongst the towering LEGO brick structures you’ll have lots of Selfie Zone opportunities as well as being able to interact with key models. Many of the buildings include illumination, sound effects and movement – such as revolving restaurants.
Simply put, this is the most spectacular LEGO brick show that Scotland has seen, specially built by Bright Bricks, the only accredited LEGO brick builder in the UK. Don’t miss it at the Dick Institute before it goes on its global tour after its Kilmarnock unveiling.
All the models are scaled at 1:125 and reach sizes of 4M. Budding LEGO brick engineers can spend time in our huge brick pit with qualified staff to help you build your own massive towers. We will also be setting a series of challenges with LEGO prizes during the show.
Advance booking highly recommended! www.eastayrshireleisure.com
