SANDUSKY, Ohio – It is two for the record books.

Beach balls were bouncing and sunscreen was being smoothed onto arms, legs and noses as Cedar Point set two new world records earlier today (Sunday, July 31) during Guinness World Record Day held at the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort.

During the first record-setting event, 401 guests were able to bounce beach balls for 10 seconds to establish a world record for most people bouncing beach balls at the same time. This was a brand new category for Guinness World Records.

Discount Drug Mart, Inc. supplied the beach balls for the event.

Shortly afterward, 681 guests applied sunscreen to set a new world record for the most people applying sunscreen at the same time. Sunscreen had to be applied continuously for two minutes to qualify for the event. This effort eclipsed the previous best of 675 set last month in Belgium.

Panama Jack donated the packets of sunscreen for the participants.

The events were monitored and certified by Philip Robertson, adjudicator for Guinness World Records, based in New York City.

“It was a very exciting morning,” Robertson said. “The turnout was excellent and the participants were very enthusiastic. The events were the embodiment of Guinness World Records: Ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”

In addition to setting two world records, the events also helped raise money for a good cause. Participants could purchase discounted tickets to the park. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Northern Ohio Chapter of the American Cancer Society.
