A new Lego tower at Rathaus Platz in Vienna has broken the world record by standing 96.73 feet (29.485 meters) tall. It was built over four days and contains almost 460,000 bricks!
The tower included 121 plates designed and built by 3,000 kids using 2 x 4 Lego bricks. The kids participated in the building process to celebrate 100 Years of the Friends of Children festival in Austria. The previous Guinness World Record was set at 96.13-feet (29.3 meters), last May in Legoland Windsor.
