The Longest Marathon on a Theme Park Attraction
Capital Ex Midway Ferris Wheel
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 to Wednesday, July 25, 2012
July 24, 8am - July 25, 2pm
Robbie the Intern took a shot at and achieved an actual world record for "The Longest Marathon on a Theme Park Attraction" at Capital Ex!
Robbie made his record attempt by staying on the Capital Ex Midway Ferris wheel for 30 hours and 35 seconds! His adventure began at 8 A.M. Tuesday, July 24th and concluded at 2 P.M. on Wednesday, July 25th. The last record - set just a day before! - was 26 hours, 43 minutes and 46 seconds by Christina Lochmiller in Roseville, California!
To show their support, Pepper & Dylan cheered him on by staying on the air for 30 straight hours alongside Robbie. An official Guinness Adjudicator was flown to Edmonton to lend their expertise and officially award Robbie the title, if he is successful.
Ride with Robbie and support The Edmonton Boys & Girls Club (The Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area)! Make a donation on-site at Pepper & Dylan's tent right next to the Ferris wheel and you can take part in Robbie's attempt!
