Standing at 17 metres tall, the Burj Khalifa LEGO replica tower is the world’s tallest Lego building structure.

The tower, which is located in Legoland Dubai’s Miniland, took over 5,000 hours to build and consists of 439,000 Lego bricks. It weighs 1,000 kilograms.

Mohammed bin Ahmed Jaber Al Harbi, who made world headlines when he approached Queen Elizabeth for a hand shake at the Royal Ascot in 2015, was on hand to open the attraction and turn on the first of the structure’s LED lights.

The model will eventually include a recreation of the world famous fountain show at the real Burj Khalifa.
