Worlds Largest 3D Domino Pyramid (29×29) – Egypt In 60’000 Dominoes


A domino effect or chain reaction is the cumulative effect produced when one event sets off a chain of similar events. The term is best known as a mechanical effect, and is used as an analogy to a falling row of dominoes.

We sacrificed 50 hours to build this dominoevent with about 60’000 dominoes. For the world record pyramid we spent more or less 12 hours. The pyramid’s got 16’675 stones and 29×29 layers.They broke the world record for the most dominoes toppled in a 3D-pyramid.

Therefore, they set up a 30×30 pyramid consisting out of 30*30 + 30*29 + 29*29 + 29*28 + 28*28 + … = 18,445 dominoes. This is quite a challenging discipline which requires special skills and a calm hand while stacking.


The event took place in “Müritzeum”, a natural history museum in Waren (Müritz) in the German state of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania.On the occasion of the school’s yearly information evening , about 6,000 dominoes are going to show the human process of vision from the picture through the eye to the brain.
