March 22 (UPI) -- A group of domino builders in Michigan created the world's largest "circle bomb" using nearly 80,000 dominoes.

The Incredible Science Machine team broke the Guinness World Record for "Most dominoes toppled in a circle bomb/circle field" by creating a series of 76,017 dominoes that toppled from the center of a circle to its outer edge.

"The Incredible Science Machine Team is very passionate about domino art and sharing it with an audience to amaze and inspire them," team leader Steve Price, 22, said.

A total of 18 builders from the United States, Canada, Germany and Austria spent 10 days constructing the domino formation at the Incredible Science Machine's annual event in Westland, Mich.

It concluded with the record-breaking circle bomb, but also featured multiple other sections celebrating various parts of the world.

A young boy began the chain reaction by spinning a globe, which set off a series of mechanisms that ultimately began to topple the massive chain of dominoes.

After weaving its way through a series of displays representing each continent, the chain concluded at the massive circle bomb, which far exceeded the previous record held by Germany's Sinners Domino Entertainment since 2014.
