world’s tallest LEGO structure has been built at the Legoland Windsor theme park in England. The tower was built from 500,000 LEGO pieces, and is close to 100 feet tall! Watch the time-lapse footage of the tower being built. Thousands of children helped build this massive tower over the span of four days.
Visitors to a British theme park are believed to have managed what millions of children worldwide have attempted in their bedrooms – the world's tallest Lego tower.
However, where even the most ambitious home Lego construction would do well to top four feet, the Legoland Windsor model is a staggering 100ft tall – the height of the Whispering Gallery at St Paul's Cathedral.
Thousands of children and families helped in the epic plastic-brick construction over the Bank Holiday weekend. It has been made in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the classic children's toy.
Youngsters helped build 20cm sections with each section lifted into place by a crane.
It is designed to resemble the mast of a Viking longboat, to fit in with the new Land of the Vikings exhibit at the Berkshire theme park.
The park's special events manager, Penny Jenkins, said: "We are thrilled to bring the World Record to Legoland Windsor after four days of hard work, not to mention nearly 500,000 bricks, and it now stands at nearly 100ft.
