On Saturday, September 27th, 2014, families from all over Ventura County, in collaboration with Conejo Recreation and Park District, Rotary International, and us, Play Well TEKnologies, attempted to break the world record for the World’s Longest LEGO Chain. The previous record was 565 meters, set by families in Wilsau, Switzerland in 2003.
In approximately 6 hours and 53 minutes, using over 190,000 LEGO pieces, 447 local residents created a new record measuring in at 902.51 meters (2961 ft.). As the charity event was a fundraiser for building a special needs playground called the Rotary DreamCatcher Playground, many families with special needs children came to help built the LEGO chain. This event coincide with the 50th anniversary of the city of Thousand Oaks. At 3:03 PM, we added the last chain link which put us over 902 meters. It was an amazing event that we will never forget. Check out some of the photos of the event below.
