At over 828 metres (2,716.5 feet) and more than 160 stories, Burj Khalifa holds the following records: the tallest building in the world, the tallest free-standing structure in the world, the highest number of stories in the world, the highest occupied floor in the world, the highest outdoor observation deck in the world, an elevator with the longest travel distance in the world and the tallest service elevator in the world. Such impressive building deserves one more world record – the world’s tallest LEGO building structure: Burj Khalifa in MINILAND.
Standing at 17 metres tall (a record-breaker for a model of a building), the Burj Khalifa LEGO replica towered over five year-old Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi, who added the finishing touches to the iconic masterpiece by adding a tiny replica of himself to the model and turning on the first of the structure’s LED lights.
When LEGOLAND Dubai, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the region’s largest integrated theme park destination, opens to the public, the Burj Khalifa in MINILAND will include a creative LED light show, as well as a recreation of the real building’s world famous fountain show.
Located within the heart of LEGOLAND Dubai the Burj Khalifa model was designed and built in over 5,000 hours using 439,000 LEGO bricks, and weighs a ton. Visitors will be able to view the impressive structure, alongside a host of other local and regional landmarks when LEGOLAND Dubai opens on 31 October 2016.
