From Saturday, 23 April, to Sunday, 19 June 2022, over thirty spectacular sea creatures can be seen “swimming” in and around Burgers’ Ocean! The lifelike animals are made up of a staggering 1.3 million colourful plastic bricks. Take an extraordinary tour through the park and be amazed by the colourful recreations of charismatic animals such as orcas, mako sharks, giant squids, dolphins, rays, seals, manatees, penguins and a few well-known inhabitants of the tropical coral reef.
More than thirty colourful animal statues are set out along a central route through the park and marked on a special map issued to visitors at the main entrance during the event.
Normal opening hours apply during the event, and there is no additional charge for Ocean Bricks. Season ticket holders can enjoy the event for free upon presentation of a valid season ticket, and day visitors only need to purchase a regular ticket to our zoo.
The colossal statue of an orca and her calf is 4.13 metres long, 1.81 metres wide, and 2.54 metres tall. A team of twenty people spent a total of 550 hours building the 1115.5-kg statue out of 223,259 plastic bricks. The orca and her calf are the centrepiece of Ocean Bricks.Buy tickets
