Screen shot 2013-08-22 at 2.26.17 PMAt 112 feet, this is officially the tallest tower made of LEGO bricks ever constructed. The monument was constructed with 500,000 bricks by the students and school officials in the Red Clay School District in Delaware. The newest tower easily beats the former record of 106 feet, set last year.

The district posted this video to the school’s Facebook page yesterday:

  1. Impressive. But it isn’t Self supporting is it? Look at all those cables; that’s cheating that is. What is the record for a self supporting tower of LEGO?

    • Not sure, but even the one they beat out in Prague had support cables.

      I’m sure after a certain point, it’s just not smart, unless you were making a pyramid of sorts.

    • It’s probably self-supporting, but not freestanding, even though the guy says in the video that it is.
