While it might seem odd, the record for the largest, biggest, or tallest sandcastle is quite a popular record for people. Many world records are incredibly hard, and this one is no different. The Guinness World Records team was on hand in June 2019 to measure the world’s largest sandcastle. It was developed by an international team of 12 sculptors that spent three and a half weeks on it. The sandcastle stands 57 feet, 11 inches, and is 85 feet wide. It also weighs an estimated 24,2450lbs or around 11 metric tons. Thomas van den Dungen led the team and had been trying to break the old record for a few years by this point.
