U.S. Space & Rocket Center sets Guinness World record for building largest K'NEX® sculpture
K'NEX T-REX is made from 160,000 K'NEX pieces and is over 12 feet tall!
Hatfield, PA, August, 2012 – K'NEX, the only U.S. construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love®, is pleased to announce that the U.S. Space & Rocket Center is home to the largest K'NEX sculpture - a life size T-REX, affectionately named K'REX!
Located in Huntsville, Alabama, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center is home to Space Camp and Aviation Challenge and is one of the most comprehensive U.S. manned space flight hardware museums in the world. Working during their time off last summer, Space Camp crew trainers - headed by Wesley Smalls and Jarrad Bedwell - built the sculpture to replicate the recast of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton featured in the center's summer exhibit: "A T-REX named Sue."
