Jackson, NJ — December 17, 2017 — Six Flags Great Adventure’s record attempt for the world’s largest snowball fight, which was postponed last weekend — ironically, due to a snow storm — took place today with 505 guests hurling a combination of indoor and real snow balls at each other for one minute. Nine Six Flags theme parks across North America participated in this national Six Flags Snow Day presented by Hallmark Channel.
The current world record of 7,681 participants was set in Canada last year. Six Flags aimed to break the record with 9,000 participants last weekend, but extreme winter weather along the East Coast snarled park events from Massachusetts down to Atlanta. Last weekend, 4,317 guests participated throughout five Six Flags parks in California, Texas and Missouri, and events in the remaining four parks, including Six Flags Great Adventure, took place this weekend. Total event participation has not been finalized.
In 2016, Six Flags broke the Guinness World Records® title for most couples kissing under the mistletoe.
