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."
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.
