Record-Breaking Fun at Gilroy Gardens

Come to Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park this summer to learn about the science of record-breaking—and even attempt to break some official world records yourself! The exciting GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS LIVE! show is now running daily at the Lakeside Amphitheater through August 14.  

Kids of all ages can join the “GWR Club,” pick up a GWR Passport, and then search throughout the park for GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS memorabilia, exhibits, and stamps featuring records from around the world. Come back to the park more than once to fill up your passport book!

You and your family can also participate in two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Official Attempts. The first is for Most people contributing to a stamp image. The current world record is 3,154 people, achieved by LIVAT Center (China) in Beijing, China on April 30, 2017. Throughout the summer, park guests will use stamps to create a giant image of park’s signature Basket Tree. The image will eventually be displayed against the backdrop of the Lakeside Amphitheater.

The second Official Attempt will be the Largest tree hug. The previous record was set in a forest in Thiruvananthapuram, India on March 21, 2017 and consisted of 4,620 people all hugging trees for one minute at the same time. Park organizers plan to attempt breaking that record at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park on Saturday, August 12, with official adjudicators from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS on hand to certify the official record.

Hope to see you at the park to make record-breaking history!
