LEGO Tower-inspired Model Sets New Guinness World Record

A new Guinness World record has been set at the LEGO House in Billund for the largest brick diorama, inspired by the new LEGO Tower mobile game. The record was broken on June 23rd.

The Guinness World Record for the world’s largest brick diorama was broken yesterday as part of The LEGO Group’s marketing campaign for Nimblebit’s upcoming LEGO Tower mobile game.

The diorama came in at 21 square meters. It beat the previous record, a 17.13 square metres LEGO Minecraft model.

The LEGO diorama was built by a roughly estimated 1,500 to 2,000 staff and fans at the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark over three days. Some fans even flew in from abroad to take part, including a group hailing from Italy.

The model consisted of 554 rooms built by fans, 524 elevator shafts and 30 toppers, with each tower reflecting the layout of the game. Approximately 400kg of LEGO bricks were used in its construction.

During LEGO Fan Media Days that took place between May 22nd and 24th, Jedi News and other fan media present had the opportunity to build a room for the record attempt. We are pleased to have played a very small part in getting this record.

LEGO Tower, developed by NimbleBit, is currently in beta and will be available for all from July 1st on Android and iOS.
