World's Tallest Sandcastles
The Guinness World Record for the World's Tallest Sandcastle record has just been beaten. The Sandcastle is in Duisburg, Germany and was commissioned by Schaunisland-Reisen a German Tour Company. It is 16.58m (54.72ft) beating the previous record for a sandcastle in Odisha, India (which measured 14.84m (48.8ft tall).
Unlike one of previous record holders - Ed Jarrett this project used Excavators and Cranes rather than hand packed sand. The design features famous buildings around the world including The Great Sphinx of Giza, Thai Buddhist Temples and the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. It took over 25 days to complete and 19 Sand Artists from around the world took part.It used 3,500 tons of compressed sand and beats the previous record by 184cm (6ft).
Ed Jarrett - who has won the Guinness World Record four times states “Utilizing machines has taken the excitement of watching volunteers of all ages working side by side on a common goal and the gravity defying engineering challenge, pretty much out of the process.”
After Ed Jarrett's fourth world record on the Jersey Shore in October 2013, Guinness World Records changed the rules to allow the use of machines.....

I think we can all agree that these massive detailed Sandcastles put make our childhood efforts with a bucket and spade at the beach look very puny indeed!
