A five-year-old Emirati officially unveiled the structure and a tiny replica of the boy was added to the scene.

LEGOLAND Dubai to open world's tallest LEGO building next week

The tallest LEGO building structure in the world has been unveiled at LEGOLAND® Dubai. A replica of the famous Burj Khalifa was officially opened by young Emirati Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi last week.

The 17-metre-tall LEGO structure has broken the record for this type of Lego building, and the mini Burj Khalifa features an LED light show and a recreation of the real building’s iconic colourful fountain show. There is also a mini version of Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi standing beneath the tower.

Siegfried Boerst, the General Manager of LEGOLAND Dubai, stated:

“It was our pleasure to welcome Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi to help us celebrate this momentous milestone.”

Mr. Boerst also explained:

“Burj Khalifa, now the tallest LEGO building model in the world, is just one of the incredible attractions MINILAND and LEGOLAND Dubai have to offer for families and we look forward to welcoming everyone to discover these wonders for themselves on 31 October.”

The new model is located in MINILAND in the centre of LEGOLAND Dubai, and it took more than 5,000 hours to build. It weighs a ton and 439,000 LEGO bricks were used to construct the building.

The LEGOLAND Dubai theme park caters for children aged between two and 12 years old, and the complex offers more than 40 interactive rides, attractions, shows, and 15,000 LEGO model structures, including famous landmarks, with more than 60 million LEGO bricks used to construct all of them. At the park, there are six themed areas: LEGO CITY, ADVENTURE, KINGDOMS, IMAGINATION, FACTORY and MINILAND. Holidaymakers can buy day tickets or annual passes to LEGOLAND Dubai, which is owned by Dubai Parks and Resorts.

The real Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, measuring at 830 metres tall. The structure towers over Dubai and has 163 floors, and visitors can head to the two observation decks on level 125 and 148. Level 48 is 555 metres high and is the world’s highest observation deck. Accessed by a special elevator, visitors can admire the views and enjoy drinks in the lounge. Level 125 is 426 metres above the ground and offers 360-degree views of the city, as well as Dubai – A Falcon’s Eye View, which offers an unusual perspective of Dubai. There’s also a section with a green screen where guests can be creative with photography and special effects.
