My friend Paul (co-designer of Labyrinth) and I constructed this 30 foot, 3000 piece tower in under 4 hours. This build set 2 personal records: Fastest build (3000 pcs in 4 hours) and tallest freestanding tower (30 feet). We were both surprised that this structure stood on its own, because the base was uneven and the tower leaned about 3 feet off vertical at the top. The tower stood for about 20 minutes, until we took it down and rebuilt a shorter, 22 foot version.
