Sheikh Hamdan's Little Friend Maj Just Finished Building the Tallest Lego Structure in the World
Legoland Dubai opens at the end of the month, as part of the world's biggest theme park, Dubai Parks and Resorts, and it looks like the 15,000 models on display at Miniland are going to be epic. For example Sheikh Hamdan's little pal Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi just put the finishing touches to the tallest Lego structure in the world, a 17-meter-tall Burj Khalifa.
Don't worry, the little one didn't have to slave away for 5,000 hours to get it done, he helped by turning the LED lights on the extraordinary model made of 439,000 bricks.
As part of Miniland, one of the instantly-recognizable models on display will be the UAE's famous Sheikh Zayed Road, which includes replicas of The Dubai Mall, two Metro stations (190,920 bricks and 1,517 hours) and multiple hotels that are architectural works of art.
The planet's biggest mall took 1,599 hours to build, weighs 936 kilograms and is constructed of 408,702 bricks. Meanwhile the Fairmont hotel alone took 1,433 hours to create with 144,544 bricks. You can also see the Radisson, World Trade Center and The Gate in DIFC.
It comes soon after they unveiled the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque which weighs nearly one and a half tons and consists of half a million pieces, as well as India's Taj Mahal. So it's fair to say, if your little one loves Lego, it's time to invest in an annual pass.
