Yeah, I think this can also pass as a “geeky thing”. I mean you’d need to at least have firm grasp in structural engineering, materials engineering & physics. This lego tower was built by a team in the Legoland Windsor theme park in the U.K. of 500,000 LEGO bricks, and stands at just about 100 feet high (beating the old record by about 4 feet).
Why was this built, you may ask. Well this tower is to honor Lego for it’s 50-years of fun. The first lego set was distributed in the early 50’s, and to date remains one of the strongest toy sets worldwide. Who would have thought it would survive the challenges of new toys and technology. In my book, nothing beats Lego.
Legoland Windsor is a child-oriented theme park in Windsor, Berkshire in England, themed around the Lego toy system. The park opened in 1996 on the site of what was the Windsor Safari Park, as the second Lego Group Legoland (the first was Legoland Billund in Denmark). In common with the other Legolands across the world, the park’s attractions consist of a mixture of Lego-themed rides, Lego models, and Lego building workshops.
