- Thursday April 8th 2021
Sydney – Thursday 8 April 2021: Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught today officially launched the LEGO® experience Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY at Sydney Tower Eye, kicking off the iconic landmark’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
The exhibition, created by LEGO® Masters judge Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is already a smash hit with tickets selling fast. To celebrate, ‘The Brickman’ himself stepped out onto SKYWALK this morning - the ultimate vantage point at the tallest building in the city - to take in the views of the city that will be home to his exhibition until July 11.
The experience explores the life and architecture of five of the world’s greatest cities; New York, London, Tokyo, Dubai and, of course, Sydney!! The focal point is a replica of the Sydney Tower made from over 30,000 LEGO® bricks\which took over 100 hours to build.
Sydney Tower Eye’s exhibition features eight massive never-before-seen-in-Sydney LEGO® brick skyscrapers including Sydney’s Deutsche Bank and Capita Centre, as well as London’s 30 St Mary Axe, also known as The Gherkin. Visitors can trace each city’s evolution all the way from 1000AD to today in a fun and educational way.
Visitors to the Sydney Tower Eye can check out over 20 models created from over 600,000 LEGO® bricks. Tickets to Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY can be purchased at Ticketek and Sydney Tower Eye.
The action doesn’t end there! After visiting the exhibition, guests can venture up to the Observation Deck or SKYWALK to take in 360-degree views of the city and beyond. Sydney Tower Eye is also hosting meet and greets with Emmet Brickowski from The LEGO® Movie and will be the only place in Sydney where people can watch a an exclusive LEGO® 4D Movies!
“As one of Sydney’s most celebrated landmarks, we are excited to host The Brickman’s exhibition of painstakingly created LEGO® models depicting famous structures from all over the world and are proud to be able to showcase eight models that have never been seen in Sydney. We are also excited to take this bricktastic experience to another level with the addition of LEGO® 4D Movies, meet and greets with Emmet, and a ‘make & take’ zone where kids can build their own models,” said Dave Boyd, General Manager of Sydney Tower Eye.
Ryan McNaught said: “I’m excited have Brickman Cities back to Sydney and to a fantastic new home at Sydney Tower Eye. Sydney is an amazing city and we’ve been blown away by Sydneysiders huge enthusiasm for LEGO® when we launched our previous creations!”
Guests can choose to purchase a ticket to see Brickman Cities powered by LEGO® CITY by itself or a combined ticket that also includes access to the Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, LEGO® 4D Movies and other interactive activities.
