Students and staff from New York’s Long Beach Middle School broke the Guinness World Record for the “Most Cereal Boxes Toppled in a Domino Fashion” by setting up hallway after hallway with more than 6300 boxes of breakfast cereal. Afterwards they donated all the cereal to food banks. Kudos to the camera operator for keeping up.

A Series of Archery World Records

A Series of Archery World Records

The guys from Dude Perfect got together with archery trick shot artist James Jean to see how many Guinness World Records they could set. Many balloons and clay targets were harmed during the making of this video, but no humans were. Those over-under-over and S-curve shots were insane.

A team of domino builders in Michigan created a number of interconnected and creative displays, which culminated in the toppling of the longest wall of dominoes ever built. The 4-foot-tall, 54,321 domino wall measured more than 169 feet long and took 90 seconds to fall. The big wall comes down starting at 4:25.

Can you imagine surfing on a wave that stands as tall as an 8-story building? That’s what big wave surfer Sebastian Steudtner did on May 24, 2022, as he rode his surfboard to the crest of a 26.21-meter (85.99-foot) wave in Praia do Norte, Nazaré Portugal, setting a Guinness World Record for the largest wave ever surfed.

Goodwood Hill Climb Record Run

Goodwood Hill Climb Record Run

The climb to the top of the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the world’s most famous time trials. At the 2022 hill climb, a tiny experimental EV called the McMurtry Spéirling set a record of 39.08 seconds, in part due to the car’s innovative design, which uses fans to generate massive amounts of downforce.

World’s Largest Xbox Series X

World’s Largest Xbox Series X

We just checked out what is likely the smallest working PS5 console. We now have the opposite – a gargantuan Xbox Series X that’s nearly 7 feet tall. Michael Pick teamed up with ZHC to build and decorate this beast, and yes, it plays games. It’s since been donated to the YMCA Youth and Teen Development Center in Atlanta, GA.

Longest Rail Slide on Skis

Longest Rail Slide on Skis

For six years, Swedish freeskier Jesper Tjäder has been attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest rail slide on skis. After 127 attempts, Tjäder achieved his dream by sliding 506 feet and 28 inches, shattering Tom Wallish’s previous record by more than 80 feet.

Domino expert Lily Hevesh spent more than 50 days painstakingly assembling this eyecatching structure out of interlocking hexagons. With its densely-packed dominoes, the colorful geometric sculpture all came crashing down in a matter of just 5 seconds – with a bit of a nail-biter before the big collapse.

Smashing Coconuts by Hand

Smashing Coconuts by Hand

Opening a coconut is best achieved with a machete or a hammer and chisel. But there are some people out there who can open a coconut bare-handed. Abheesh P. Dominic is an overachiever, and in 2017 he broke the Guinness World Record for most coconuts smashed in a minute by cracking 122 of the tough nuts using only his fist.

World’s Largest Rube Goldberg Machine

World’s Largest Rube Goldberg Machine

We’ve seen plenty of Rube Goldberg machines, but this one holds the Guinness World Record for the largest one to date. Chevrolet Menlo, Wang Xiqi, and Guan Jian built the complicated contraption, which takes 427 steps to turn a light on. We’re not sure if it’s physically the largest, but it’s the most complicated we’ve seen.

The Most Bubbles in a Bubble

The Most Bubbles in a Bubble

Because there has to be a Guinness World Record for every possible thing, Chang Yu-Te blew an impressive 783 individual soap bubbles into the middle of one larger soap bubble before it eventually popped. This is one record to which we say, “DO try this at home” – just be sure to wipe down the floor with a towel afterward.

World’s Largest Balloon-O-Saur

World’s Largest Balloon-O-Saur

As part of a balloon animal kingdom, a multi-national team of 34 artists and students from the Netherlands, Turkey, and Spain created this giant sculpture of a dinosaur from 150,000 biodegradable balloons. The 64-foot-long creature was on display in Istanbul in November 2020. We want to see the popping footage now.

36-Loop Hot Wheels Track

36-Loop Hot Wheels Track

Andrew Scorgie and his young helper Jordan had some downtime during quarantine, so they set about designing a Hot Wheels track. The track they built starts on the roof of their house and runs to the ground, incorporating 36 sequential loops. The 72-foot-long track had a 36-foot vertical drop to keep the cars zooming along.

World’s Largest Ice Carousel

World’s Largest Ice Carousel

A few years back, the guys at the Beyond the Press channel created a small carousel on a frozen lake by cutting a circle in the ice. Now, they’re back with a super-sized version of the stunt, in which they helped make a 1000-foot diameter circle out of Finland’s lake Lappajärvi. The ice disc is estimated to weigh about 30,000 tons.

Hot Wheels Loop Record

Hot Wheels Loop Record

5MadMovieMakers set what they believe is a world record for the most loops by an unpowered toy car. They strung together ten Hot Wheels loops into a steep, downhill run, and the little car successfully zipped through all of them all thanks to gravity. The dizzying GoPro footage was especially fun to watch.

The Lowest Voice in the World

The Lowest Voice in the World

Singer and voiceover artist Tim Storms holds two significant world records – the lowest vocal note sung by a male, as well as the greatest male vocal range – an insane 10 octaves. In this performance of Lonesome Road for Alpha Sound, his deep sub-Bass voice will shake your subwoofers and rattle your bones.

World’s Fastest Puncher

World’s Fastest Puncher

When we first watched this video of Kickboxer Pavel Trussov showing how fast he can punch, we thought it was sped up. It’s not. This guy really did manage 334 to perform full-extension punches in just one minute, setting a Guinness World Record in the process. Give him 3 minutes, and he can manage 919 punches.

Largest Funko POP! Collection

Largest Funko POP! Collection

Paul Scardino of Winchester City, Virginia likes to collect Funko POP! figures. At this point, he’s amassed an incredible 5,306 of the big-headed vinyl toys, which makes him the Guinness World Record holder. The crazy thing is that he still has more than 3,000 more POP!s he’s yet to procure.

World’s Tallest Mohawk

World’s Tallest Mohawk

Meet Joseph Grisamore. As of this writing, Joe is the Guinness World Record holder for the tallest full mohawk, at 108.2 cm, or about 42.6″. Getting his long, flowing locks to stand upright takes about an hour – with help from his hairdresser and “a crew of people.” We’re guessing he has to limbo his way through doorways.

Tallest Bowling Ball Stack

Tallest Bowling Ball Stack

We didn’t know it was physically possible to stack even a single bowling ball on top of another, so our minds were blown when we saw that Shen Xiaoshi managed to balance TEN of the heavy spheres in a column, setting a Guinness World Record along the way. We love his zen-like calm as he assesses the situation.

World Record Jenga Pyramid

World Record Jenga Pyramid

Playing a regular game of Jenga gets pretty challenging after you’ve got a few dozen bricks in your tower.

World’s Longest Hot Wheels Track

Spider-Woman Climbs a Wall

Spider-Woman Climbs a Wall

If you’ve ever made your way up the face of a climbing wall, you know it can take time, strength, and patience to make it to the top. Or you could be Aries Susanti Rahayu, the first woman ever to climb a 15-meter wall in under 7 seconds. Don’t blink, or you might miss it.

Head-balancing Stairclimb

Most Lit Candles on a Cake

We’re at the point in life where we’d rather not have a birthday candle to represent every year we’ve been alive. But members from the Sri Chinmoy Center turned their cake into a bonfire with a whopping 72,585 candles on top. CO2 fire extinguishers let the cake remain edible.
