ROYAL OAK, Mich., 

The global phenomenon BRICKLIVE is assembling at the Detroit Zoo this summer.

Presented by Michigan First Credit Union, this limited-time installation will feature more than 70 dazzling toy brick sculptures spaced throughout the Zoo – mostly along the 3-acre gravel trail located near the Zoo’s northern border.

From a 7-foot elk and 12-foot giraffe to a 10-foot gator and a massive mako shark – more than two million bricks will spark curiosity, joy and amazement for guests of all ages, making BRICKLIVE the best and most fun memory-making event in metro Detroit this summer. In addition to marveling at the intricate toy sculptures, guests will capture new memories at exclusive selfie stations inside a jungle-themed Jeep or a larger-than-life Venus flytrap!

BRICKLIVE tickets are available for purchase online or at the main admissions gate. For a limited time, DZS members can add the BRICK Pass to their membership and enjoy unlimited access to BRICKLIVE through Sept. 4. Visit for full details and purchasing information.

BRICKLIVE is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from May 27 to Sept. 4. Exhibit tickets are $5 per person per visit. A Detroit Zoo admission purchase or Detroit Zoo membership is required.

This amazing experience is the result of a new partnership between RWS Global, BRICKLIVE’s U.S. representative, and the Detroit Zoo. RWS Global team members collaborated with the Zoo to combine two single BRICKLIVE shows into this current mega-show experience, while also providing design and project management for the show’s install.

This event is also sponsored by IBEW Local 58, Meijer, Consumers Energy, Buddy’s Pizza, Suburban Subaru of Troy, Doetsch Environmental Services, RCX Sports – NFL FLAG and DTE.
