Guinness World Records™ Record Attempt 18TH FEB

Guinness World Records™ Record Attempt


Lend us a hand in the sand for the Guinness World Records™ record attempt for the most sandcastles built in one hour.

Forming part of the upcoming Sand Safari Arts Festival (February 9 to 25), the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt, is hoped to attract approximately 1,000 registered participants to gather on the iconic sands of Surfers Paradise Beach to build 3,000 x 60cm high sandcastles in 60 minutes.

People of all ages can participate by registering as a solo, group or team of five in one of three categories – ‘Family Fun’, ‘Agile & Abled’ and ‘Deadly Serious’ – depending on your level and ability.

We’re eager to break the current Guinness World Records™ title holder for most sandcastles built in one hour, which saw 2,230 sandcastles built in Germany in 2013. Help us to win this title and make international history!

Date: Sunday, 18 February 2018

Location: Surfers Paradise Beach. The event zone will be located between Hanlan Street and Laycock Street.
