Where: LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta
The votes are in! Fans across the globe weighed in to determine the model that LEGOLAND Discovery Center will teach the world to build on Guinness World Record Day. The eight LEGOLAND Discovery Centers worldwide, including Atlanta’s Phipps Plaza location, are set to build a festive 82 brick, red and green Christmas Train from the famous bricks.
The record will be attempted on Thursday, November 15, Guinness World Record Day, when the LEGOLAND Discovery Centers will hold a bumper day of model building as they attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the “largest toy construction lesson”, or master model builder’s workshop.
The Master Model Builders at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centers hold over 40,768 LEGO building classes across the world each year, teaching over 1,019,200 children how to build using about 40, 768,000 LEGO bricks. This time they will all be holding one lesson simultaneously across the globe at the same time.
The ten lessons will be held in Atlanta, Berlin, Chicago, Dallas, Duisberg, Kansas City, Manchester (holding two lessons), Oberhausen and Tokyo for 30 minutes at exactly the same time of day starting at 6 a.m. in Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City; 7 a.m. in Atlanta; on the other side of the world, in Tokyo, Japan, it will be at 9 p.m.; 12 p.m. in Manchester, UK and 1 p.m. in Germany.
