Dubai’s Burj Khalifa Tower now has two “world records.” In addition to being the tallest building in the world, it’s also now the site of the world’s largest fireworks show ever. As we rang in 2014, Dubai set off a world record breaking 500,000 fireworks in the spectacular six minute show.
Organizers of the event easily beat the standing 2012 world record, the display to mark Kuwait’s golden jubilee anniversary where 77,282 fireworks were launched. Dubai broke that record within their first minute.
The Guinness World Record were on site to judge the show as the largest in history, and more than 1.7 million people watched live around Dubai.
