As many as 317 guests at the Carowinds Theme Park in North Carolina celebrated Easter Weekend by setting a new Guinness World Record for the ‘Most People Dyeing Eggs’.
The record attempt kicks off a summer-long partnership between Guinness World Records Live!, a new business which brings record breaking directly to the public, and Cedar Fair Entertainment, known for its annual Easter Egg-stravaganzas.
The “colorful” family-friendly experience took place at the Plaza II Picnic Pavilion within the park, where festive Carolinian kids of all ages dipped and dyed eggs with determination to make their mark in the record books.[ Also Read: How Many Kisses Can You Get in a Minute? ]
While the egg-dyeing category is a new record category for Guinness World Records, officials set the minimum requirement at 250 participants.
Guinness World Records guidelines stipulate that each participant must be equipped with at least one hard-boiled egg and spoon and enough dye to submerge his or her egg.
Eggs must be dyed for exactly three minutes and then participants must simultaneously remove their eggs from the dye using their spoons. All eggs must be fully dyed and shown to the Guinness World Records Adjudicator for approval.[ Also Read: Which Brand Got Most ‘Likes’ on Facebook? ]
“This event was the perfect way to kick off Guinness World Records Live’s year-long partnership with Cedar Fair,” said Stuart Claxton, U.S. spokesman for Guinness World Records.
“With fun, live record-breaking attempts continuing throughout the summer across the nation, families have a great opportunity to not only enjoy the rides but make the record books!”
The Cedar Fair summer of records continues at a variety of parks throughout the U.S. this summer, where Guinness World Records Live will be bringing the adrenalin rush of world record breaking to local theme parks.
Record attempts are confirmed at Cedar Point, Knott’s Berry Farm, Kings Island, Canada’s Wonderland, Kings Dominion, Carowinds, Dorney Park, California’s Great America, Worlds of Fun and Valleyfair.
