RedBalloon, Australia’s leading online experience and ‘things to do’ destination, is gearing up to break another Guinness World Records record title this December.

Taking place in Wollongong, NSW on Saturday 17 December, RedBalloon is attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for ‘the most tandem parachute jumps in eight hours’ and is calling for eager daredevils who want to cross skydiving off their bucket list and achieve a world record to boot.

These record breaking attempts are becoming somewhat of a habit for the gift retailer following last year’s record smash for ‘world’s largest surf lesson’ which saw 320 people congregate on iconic Bondi Beach dressed in Santa outfits.

The number of jumps required to set the new record is 94, however RedBalloon has set an ambitious target of 150 jumps within the given time period. The event is completely free for the lucky 150 participants who make the list.

In partnership with children’s cancer charity, Camp Quality, participants will be encouraged to donate on the day, and RedBalloon will be donating $10 per skydive to the charity alongside running a competition for celebrity guests in attendance, which will see a bonus $1,000 donated to the charity every time the RedBalloon target is landed on.

“We’re very excited about this record attempt. RedBalloon has always been known for pushing the boundaries and testing our limits, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to be the new Guinness World Records title holders for this skydiving experience,” RedBalloon CEO Nick Baker said.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing the public get involved and tick skydiving off their bucket list whilst creating some great new memories in the lead up to Christmas. Participants can register for this experience free of charge through the RedBalloon website.”

If you’re interested in participating in this unique Guinness World Record attempt, visit the RedBalloon website to register. Spaces are strictly limited so people are advised to get in quickly to avoid disappointment.
