World Record Lego Tower

Legoland Windsor in Berkshire, England has the world’s largest Lego tower ever! The tower, shaped like a Viking longboat, was completed just a couple of days ago with the help of park visitors. Children built 20 cm sections, which were hoisted in place by crane.
The park's special events manager, Penny Jenkins, said: "We are thrilled to bring the World Record to Legoland Windsor after four days of hard work, not to mention nearly 500,000 bricks, and it now stands at nearly 100ft.

"It has been a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Lego bricks." The record attempt is awaiting official verification by Guinness World Records.

The official record is held by a 96-foot tower built in Toronto last year. Link -via Gizmodo

This causes me to wonder about the tensile strength and load bearing strength of ABS plastic. The reason for the guy wires might be because of the limited ability of the blocks to stay locked together under that much pressure from weight and wind. If they are designed for human fingers to be able to lock together and pull apart, the mechanical bond is probably not that strong.
