Luuk Broos already held the world record but further improved it with the help of 50,166 glasses. You can drink to that: Luuk Broos from Kaatsheuvel officially built the largest tower of champagne glasses ever. “We worked on it for five days, together with twenty helpers,” says Broos by telephone from Madrid, where the tower is located. The owner of an event agency further improved his own record from 2008 with the champagne tower. This new tower was no less than 7.5 meters high!
“A LARGE GLASS CONTAINER”
It wasn’t easy. “Normally we use extendable lifts for this, but we were not allowed to use them because there was another room below our room,” explains Broos. “The lifts would be too heavy for the floor, so we had to build the tower while floating and hanging from cables. That created a Fata Morgana-like situation.” Broos feared that one small mistake would lead to “a large bottle bank”.
DAUGHTER TAKES OVER
It is probably the last tower that Broos builds: his daughter Lotte will take over from him in the future. “My daughter also did most of the work on this tower, while I get all the credit. They will be for her soon.”
