Let it be known the world's largest ice maze measured 12,855.68 square feet and was constructed in Buffalo N.Y. for the 2010 Buffalo Powder Keg Winter Festival.

So says Guinness World Records.

A representative from Guinness was on site to measure the maze and issued a proclamation to festival co-chair Jeff Empric this morning on the plaza of HSBC Center, where the world's largest ice maze was constructed for this weekend's winter festival.

"Congratulations," said Amanda Mochan, a Guinness World Records adjudications manager, "and welcome to the Guinness World Records family."

"We can't wait to bring people down here and show them what a great festival this will be," Empric said as he stood in front of a podium made of — what else — ice.

The maze was completed last night, Empric said.

It breaks the old world record for an ice maze set in 2005 when the Pontiac Ice Maze was constructed during a Toronto festival using 1,940 blocks of ice and measuring 8,280 square feet.

It also was done at a fraction of the cost.

When organizers of the Buffalo festival decided to go for the record, they found out the Toronto maze cost more than $300,000.

But Buffalo was able to pull of the feat thanks to donations and volunteers.

Artic Glacier Ice company donated the 2,200, 300-pound blocks of ice.

Local businesses and foundations chipped in with $20,000 to have the ice trucked to HSBC plaza.

Dean Sutton Architects designed the maze, and some 50 volunteers spent the past week building it through snow, freezing rain and melting temperatures.

Largest Cruise Ship in the world - MS Freedom of the Seas

MS Freedom of the Seas is a cruise ship owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International. It is the namesake of Royal Caribbean's Freedom Class of cruise ships, and can put up 3,634 passengers and 1,300 crew on fifteen passenger decks. Freedom of the Seas was the largest passenger ship in the world.

The Freedom of the Seas was build at the Aker Yards drydock in Turku, Finland, which also is building the other ships of the Freedom Class. Upon its completion, it became the largest passenger ship ever built, taking that honor from Cunard's RMS Queen Mary 2.

Freedom of the Seas is 2.4 meters (7 ft 10 in) narrower than QM2 at the waterline, 6 meters (20 ft) shorter, has 1.5 meters (4 ft 11 in) less draft, is 8.3 meters (27 ft) less tall and 10 miles per hour (16 km/h) slower. Freedom however is the larger ship in terms of gross tonnage. While its gross tonnage was estimated to range from 154,000 GT to 160,000 GT, its official rating by Det Norske Veritas, a Norwegian marine classification society, is 154,407 GT, compared with QM2's 148,528 GT. Freedom of the Seas had the highest gross tonnage of any passenger ship yet built, until the 2009 completion of the MS Oasis of the Seas.

The ship has three swimming areas: an interactive water park, a dedicated adult pool and the main pool. There are two adults-only whirlpools cantilevered out from the ship's sides, the Royal Promenade sports, a coffee shop, Sorrento's Pizzeria, a Ben and Jerry's ice-cream shop, Vintage's winery, the Bull and Bear Irish pub, and many Duty-free shops. The 13th deck has a sports area with a rock climbing wall, the Flow Rider (an onboard wave generator for surfing), a miniature golf course and a full size basketball court. Other items include an ice skating rink, a casino, a Johnny Rockets restaurant, Wi-Fi capabilities throughout the ship, flat panel televisions in all staterooms, and cell phone connectivity.
