Chocoholics rejoice! Now you can get a taste of the world’s tallest chocolate fountain at confectionery theatrical production, Fantasìa by Escribà.
Standing at a massive 8.5-metres, Callebaut Falls with its cascading luscious liquid dark chocolate is more than twice the height of a double-decker bus. With a cascade of four tonness of chocolate, Callebaut Falls made its entry into the Guinness World Record books on Thursday after beating the previous record of 8 metres.
It took 25 people, including designers, builders and chocolate specialists, two months to design and build Callebaut Falls. It was built in Barcelona and shipped to Marina Bay Sands to be reassembled for the event.
Though this is the first time the team is embarking on a project of this scale, their biggest challenge was Singapore's humdity. While refrigerated shipping containers were used to transport the confectionery, there was still a significant amount of re-touching to be done due to condensation.
