Help customers build a Lego ship – with the guidance of professionals
About 2,500 customers spent ten days at Sindelfingen building the ship under the supervision of a Lego model maker. The hull, designed in the style of a cruise ship, contains about a million stones. It is said to weigh about a ton. The world record attempt was accompanied by professional Lego builders from Brandenburg, also known from television.
World record with attention to detail
The ship with its dark blue hull and white superstructure is also a huge diorama. The floors are inhabited by objects standing on the railing, fishing or sunbathing. Lifeboats were thought out as well as a mermaid-shaped figurehead.
