RedBalloon, Australia’s leading online experience destination, has smashed the Guinness World Records title for the Most tandem skydives in an eight-hour period.

Taking place in Wollongong, the record attempt saw 155 daredevil participants jump out of a plane dressed in Santa suits, creating an unforgettable festive experience for all involved.

With the number to beat set at 94, RedBalloon smashed it out of the sky, getting all 155 participants across the line in under eight hours.

The event saw RedBalloon partner with children’s cancer charity Camp Quality, where a total amount of $5,000 was raised and presented to the charity on the day, with many families and Camp Quality volunteers also participating in the Guinness World Records attempt.

Some familiar faces also joined the fun, with a team from Survivor Australia 2016 donning parachutes, alongside some recent favourites from the Bachelor and the Bachelorette.

“We’re absolutely thrilled at the outcome of the attempt and to have achieved another Guinness World Records title,” RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker said.

“We broke the Guinness World Records title for the world’s largest surf lesson last year and had such a blast that we wanted to do something even more thrilling this year. It’s becoming a bit of a RedBalloon Christmas tradition.

“RedBalloon is all about creating moments and that’s something we definitely achieved today. We hope that each and every participant had fun and relished the opportunity to tick skydiving off their bucket list, and leaves today with another great Christmas memory.”

“RedBalloon is one of our official partners and has supported the charity for a number of years, including hosting a number of Camp Quality families across a variety of RedBalloon experiences earlier this year,” Camp Quality regional manager – ACT/Illawarra Sonia Cameron said.

“We loved being a part of this very special Guinness World Records event and it was great to see the smiles on the faces of our Camp Quality families.”
