Six Flags Claims Smooch-Filled Record for Holiday in the Park Event

The holidays are traditionally a season filled with love, and Six Flags Entertainment has proven that to be true as ever with a brand new Guinness World Record, just achieved this weekend at Holiday in the Park.  The company now holds the official record for the most couples kissing under mistletoe at the same time!

A crowd of about 350 people stood witness to the record at Six Flags Great Adventure, but in total there were six additional Six Flags Parks in three separate time zones involved in the attempt at the same time.  (Georgia, Over Texas, Fiesta Texas, St. Louis, Magic Mountain and Discovery Kingdom)  At Six Flags Great Adventure there were approximately 175 couples that participated, kissing for at least 10 seconds to make the record official - smoooooch!

While the official total of people involved in the new world record hasn't been released yet, it's many hundreds more than the 402 people that previously held the record - which took place at Six Flags Over Georgia in 2015.

Holiday in the Park is going on at all the Six Flags theme parks that participated in the event, with each park featuring plenty of holiday lights, special entertainment, tasty treats and shopping opportunities, thrilling rides and of course Santa himself - plus plenty more.
