Great Wolf Lodge Sets Guinness World Record For Longest Distance Water Sliding

Madison, WI -- Great Wolf Resorts received the official word that they've set the Guinness World Record for "longest distance water sliding in 24 hours in multiple venues."

The event was held March 26-27 at all Great Wolf Lodge locations to celebrate the opening of new waterslides at its lodges in Kansas City, Mason, Ohio and Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania.

During the "World's Largest Waterslide-athon" every slider who descended the designated slide counted toward breaking the record for longest distance traveled on waterslides over a 24-hour period.

"We're thrilled to hold the Guinness World Record for the longest distance watersliding in 24 hours. It was a true team effort at all of our properties," said Kim Schaefer, CEO of Great Wolf Resorts. "We had so much fun setting this world record, but what makes this a truly special event is the generosity of our guests and the general public who donated during the waterslide-athon to our charity of choice, Big Brothers Big Sisters."

Great Wolf Lodge guests donated more than $75,800 during the event, and the corporate office contributed an additional $50,000. The total donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters was more than $125,800. The company also welcomed local Bigs and Littles to participate in the waterslide-athon.
