Man Builds World's Tallest Sandcastle

Ed Jarrett, Guinness World Record holder for the tallest sandcastle, has beaten his own record for the second time.

His latest incredible construction was built at Winding Trails Recreation Area in Farmington, Connecticut, USA and measured 37 ft 10 in - a full 6 ft taller than his previous record. The medieval castle’s design features a two-headed, fire-breathing dragon and Rapunzel.

Over 1.6 million pounds of sand and water were used to create the structure, while more than 1,000 volunteers were on hand to help Ed, collectively contributing over 2,000 work hours.

Ed began work on the castle on April 1, with the completed structure finished in time for official measurements a whole seven weeks later on May 20.
