    World's Largest LEGO Tower at LEGOLAND California

    LEGOLAND California Press Release

    World's Largest LEGO Tower at LEGOLAND California

    CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 4 -- LEGOLAND® California to break Guinness World Record™ for Tallest LEGO® TowerTheme park guests participate in record-setting event Presidents Day 2005 Carlsbad, California – Thousands of children along with their families will click together more than half-a-million LEGO® bricks at LEGOLAND® California February 17-21, 2005, to break the Guinness World Record for the tallest LEGO tower ever built!

    The tower will soar over the theme park’s main entrance and will be built entirely of LEGO bricks. Park guests will be able to participate in this record-breaking event by constructing their own piece of the tower beginning Thursday, February 17 when the Park opens at 10 a.m.

    Park officials estimate the tower will take four days, 40 hours, nearly 50,000 guests and more than 500,000 LEGO bricks to complete! The construction of the tower begins everyday during Presidents Day weekend when the Park opens at 10 a.m. and ends when the Park closes at 5 p.m. Witness the closing ceremony on Presidents Day, February 21 at 10:30 a.m. when the final bricks are positioned and the tower is measured and certified by an official from Guinness World Records.

    The current Guinness World Record is held by AS Rekato Ltd., the company who organized the building of a LEGO tower built in Tallinn, Estonia in August 1998. The tower took four days to build reaching a height of 82 feet and was made of 391, 478 LEGO bricks. LEGOLAND California will have to create a tower at least 83 feet in height to break the current record.

    LEGOLAND California is a 128-acre family theme park dedicated to families with children between the ages of 2 and 12. Just like with LEGO play materials, kids are the ones who make things happen at the Park. They drive, pedal, squirt, climb, jump, stomp, slide, steer, pull, click, push, gallop, laugh, build and program their way through more than 50 rides and attractions. There are only three other LEGOLAND parks in the world -- LEGOLAND® Billund in Denmark, LEGOLAND® Windsor outside of London and LEGOLAND® Deutschland near Günzburg, Germany. For more information, log on to www.LEGOLAND.com or call (760) 918-LEGO.

    We participated in it last year. We were there on the second day and unless you are there on the last day, you don't get to see the thing finished

    It was fun though. We'll have to miss it this year.

    All that's going to happen is that the people in Estonia are going to haul out their 82 foot Lego tower and add a few more feet of bricks to it, taking the record back.
