LEGOLAND Florida set out to allow the first 401 people in line today into their soon-to-open water park free to set a Guinness Book world record. At 10:13 a.m. park General Manager Adrian Jones announced 1355 people were on hand. Approximately two minutes later to the squeals and cheers of the attendees, hundreds of beach balls were in the air for the required 10 seconds … in fact they were in the air much longer as the crowd was a dedicated bunch.
LEGOLAND officials announced that the previous record (400 beach balls aloft for 10 seconds) had been smashed! Documentation will now be filed with Guinness officials to certify the record. All who were admitted were able use the water park until 5 p.m.
Jones noted that the world’s largest LEGOLAND Water Park officially opens this Saturday, May 26, 2012. Ladies and gentlemen … start your beach balls.
