We have studied a model which has been proposed as a regularization for four-dimensional quantum gravity. The partition function is constructed by performing a weighted sum over all triangulations of the four-sphere. Using numerical simulation we present evidence that the number of such triangulations containing V simplices may grow faster than exponentially with V. This property would ensure that the model has no thermodynamic limit.
