The Largest Champagne Fountain in the World

An attempt is under way to break the record for the largest champagne fountain in the world at the Wijnegem shopping centre near Antwerp.

The 22.9 foot (7 meter) high pyramid of 43,000 glasses weighing 19,590 pounds (8,750 kilos) will attempt to break the record held by Luuk Broos, director of Maison Luuk-Chalet Fontain.

Luuk’s 56-story champagne fountain was made from 30,856 traditional long-stem glasses at the Steigenberger Kurhaus Hotel in Scheveningen, Netherlands on December 30 1999.

Dear Lord, that is amazing.

I could not quite work out if the attempt was successful?

Hi Jeannie,

At the time of writing it was being attempted - will go and check out whether they accomplished their feat! (Wouldn't it be awful if it collapsed!)
