WORLD's BIGGEST FREE-HOLD WATER PARK

TROPICAL ISLANDS RESORT
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's BIGGEST FREE-HOLD WATER PARK

Tropical Islands Resort is a tropical theme park in Krausnick, in the district of Dahme-Spreewald in Brandenburg, Germany. It is located in the former CargoLifter airship hangar (known as the Aerium), the largest water park, biggest free-standing hall in the world. The hall belonged to the company CargoLifter until its insolvency in 2002.

BEHIND THE HALL
In 1938, Nazi Germany began development of Brand-Briesen Airfield for the Luftwaffe. The Red Army overran the site in May, 1945, and occupied the site after World War II, adding a second runway and nuclear-resistant command and control facilities for the installed fighter aircraft regiment.

With the reunification of East Germany in 1989/1990, the Soviet Army agreed to return all military bases by 1994. Returned to the Federal Government of Germany in 1992, Cargolifter AG bought the former military airfield to construct airships. They began development of a new construction hall, 360 metres long, 210 metres wide and 107 metres high, which cost €78 million. At 5.5 million m³ (194 million ft³), it stands as one of the largest buildings on Earth by volume, and is the world's largest single hall without supporting pillars inside. The hangar was commissioned as an airship hangar named Aerium in November 2000, but the airship it was intended to house – the CL160 – was never built. CargoLifter went bankrupt in mid-2002.

Tropical Islands has a number of different themed areas:
  • The Tropical Village, featuring accurate copies of traditional buildings from Thailand, Borneo, Samoa and Bali.
  • The Rainforest, with around 50,000 plants and 600 different species, including some rare plants.
  • The Tropical Sea, a 140 metres (460 ft) pool with an area of 4,400 square metres (47,000 sq ft) and a depth of 1.35 metres (4 ft 5 in) designed to look like the waters of a coral island, a 200 metres (660 ft) sandy beach and 850 wooden sun-loungers; water temperature 28 °C (82 °F).
  • The Bali Lagoon, with an area of 1,200 square metres (13,000 sq ft)and a depth of less than 1 metre (3 ft 3 in) in places, fountains, a current canal, whirlpools and two water slides; water temperature 32 °C (90 °F).

The Ryugyong Hotel is a 105-story pyramid-shaped skyscraper under construction in Pyongyang, North Korea. Its name ("capital of willows") is also one of the historical names for Pyongyang. The building is also known as the 105 Building.
The building consists of three wings, each measuring 100 metres (330 ft) long, 18 metres (59 ft) wide, and sloped at a 75-degree angle, which converge at a common point to form a pinnacle. The building is topped by a truncated cone 40 metres (130 ft) wide, consisting of eight floors that are intended to rotate, topped by a further six static floors. The structure was originally intended to house five revolving restaurants, and either 3,000 or 7,665 guest rooms, according to different sources.

WORLD LARGEST ANCIENT PYRAMID

GREAT PYRAMID OF KHUFU (2,58 million m³)
Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's LARGEST ANCIENT PYRAMID

The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Khufu or the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest. Egyptologists believe that the pyramid was built as a tomb for fourth dynasty Egyptian Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops in Greek) over a 10 to 20-year period concluding around 2560 BCE. Initially at 146.5 metres (481 feet), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Originally, the Great Pyramid was covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface; what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base.

Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's LARGEST PIZZA

The newly-crowned largest pizza was named Ottavia, an homage to the first Roman emperor Octavian Augustus. Too bad it won't fit into the world's largest pizza box.

Five Italian chefs came together to create the World’s Biggest Pizza. The delicious monstrosity measured 131-feet in diameter, tipped the scales at over 51,000 pounds, and contained 1,488 pounds of margarine, 19,800 pounds of flour, 10,000 pounds of tomato sauce, 8,800 pounds of mozzarella cheese, 551 pounds of salt, 220 pounds of lettuce and 55 pounds of vinegar.

Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's BIGGEST TREE

The General Sherman is a giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) tree located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in Tulare County, California. By volume, it is the largest known living single stem tree on Earth. The General Sherman Tree is neither the tallest known living tree on Earth (that distinction belongs to the Hyperion tree, a Coast redwood), nor is it the widest (both the largest cypress and largest baobab have a greater diameter), nor is it the oldest known living tree on Earth (that distinction belongs to the Methuselah tree, a Great Basin bristlecone pine). With a height of 83.8 metres (275 ft), a diameter of 7.7 metres (25 ft), an estimated bole volume of 1,487 cubic metres (52,513 cu ft), and an estimated age of 2,300–2,700 years, it is among the tallest, widest and longest-lived of all trees on the planet.

WORLD's LARGEST SHOPPING MALL (FAILED)

NEW SOUTH CHINA MALL, CHINA

New South China Mall in Dongguan, China is the largest mall in the world based on gross leasable area, and ranked second in total area to the Dubai Mall. However, it is largely vacant. Unlike other "dead malls", which have been characterized by the departure of tenants, the New South China Mall has been 99% vacant since its 2005 opening as very few merchants have ever signed up

Dongguan, with a population in excess of 10 million, is located in southern China's Guangdong province, east of the province's largest city, Guangzhou. The mall was built on land formerly used for farming,[4] in the Wanjiang District of the city. The project was spearheaded by Hu Guirong (Alex Hu), who became a billionaire in the instant noodle industry.

The mall contains sufficient space for as many as 2,350 stores in approximately 659,612 square meters (7,100,000 sq ft) of leasable space and 892,000 square meters (9,600,000 sq ft) of total area.

The mall has seven zones modeled on international cities, nations and regions, including Amsterdam, Paris, Rome, Venice, Egypt, the Caribbean, and California. Features include a 25 metres (82 ft) replica of the Arc de Triomphe, a replica of Venice's St Mark's bell tower, a 2.1 kilometers (1.3 mi) canal with gondolas, and a 553-meter indoor-outdoor roller coaster.
