The world's largest LEGO Great Ball Contraption has set a new record at LEGO World in Copenhagen. The contraption runs for 15 minutes and 30 seconds. It was built by a team of seven dedicated builders, whose work definitely paid off. The video shows the LEGO Great Ball Contraption running and takes you on a journey along with the tiny toy balls that get carried away by the machines from one area to another.

Among the heaps of building blocks, the Great Ball Contraption features a LEGO pirate ship, cement truck, Ferris wheel and even a train that carries the balls around. I can't even imagine how long it took to create everything.
