Carowinds Grabs Guinness World Record

In the first of a series of events to be held this year at Cedar Fair amusement parks, Carowinds broke the world record for the most people dyeing Easter eggs this past weekend.  The park had 317 people involved, and now officially hold the record.

"While the egg-dyeing category is a brand new record category for Guinness World Records, officials set the minimum requirement at 250 participants. Guinness World Records® guidelines stipulate that each participant must be equipped with at least one hard-boiled egg and spoon and enough dye to submerge his or her egg."

They really meant business with those eggs! Then again, a Guinness World Record should have all sorts of official rules and stipulations.  You can read the park's press release here, or check out a gallery of shots.
