Leaning Tower of Dallas is recreated in LEGO bricks

Dallas’s latest landmark has been reproduced in miniature at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Dallas/Fort Worth.

A building demolition in Dallas, Texas, didn’t go according to plan, inadvertently leading to the perfect Instagram photo op. It became known as the ‘Leaning Tower of Dallas’ to visitors, and the local LEGOLAND Discovery Centre team has been quick to spot the marketing potential.

Master Model Builder Assistant at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Dallas/Fort Worth, Matt Graham, spent two hours building the leaning building using 1,500 bricks. To capture the buzz around the location, he included minifigures posing for selfies.

The demolition company has plans to rectify the situation and complete the demolition within days, but the LEGO version will remain in place for the rest of the month, before it has its own controlled demolition.

When the building does come down, it will pace the way for a new development called the Central Dallas.

Throughout February, teachers can get a deal at the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, with free admission for the teacher and $10 tickets for up to five other people. Tickets are available at the official website.
