As shared by PEOPLE, a visit to a dreamy Disney castle recently turned into a nightmare scenario for two young kids at the Museum of Glass in Shanghai. The two youngsters were chasing each other around one of the exhibits when they hit into a $64,000 glass replica of a Disney castle.

The tower, also known as The Fantasy Castle, was “demolished,” the spokesperson said, while other parts were damaged.

According to Vice, The Fantasy Castle is valued at 450,000 yuan ($64,000) and took 500 hours to build. It was created by the Arribas Brothers, Spanish artisans who gave the castle to the museum in 2016. The glass display features over 30,000 individual pieces and is decorated in 24-carat gold. It weighs about 60 kilograms (132 pounds).

Despite damage to the castle, Rudy Arribas, president of Arribas Brothers, said his brother Miguel is not upset about the incident. “Luckily it’s not destroyed. As soon as the coronavirus travel restrictions are lifted, Miguel will go to Shanghai and do the repair. He loves to travel,” Rudy told Today Parents. “Miguel just is glad people are looking at his beautiful work.

“We’re used to kids and this kind of stuff happening,” he explained. “Glass breaks. Nothing is done on purpose.”
