Guinness: Carowinds sets egg-dyeing record

Posted April 24, 2011


— More than 300 people dipped and dyed eggs Saturday at the amusement park that straddles the North Carolina-South Carolina state line, setting a Guinness World Record.

Guinness says the category is a new one, but it had set guidelines that required each participant to have at least one hard-boiled egg, a spoon and enough dye to submerge the egg. Guinness also had set a minimum of 250 people to consider the park's Easter Egg-stravaganza for the record.

All eggs were colored and shown to a Guinness official for approval.

Cedar Fair Entertainment, the owner of Carowinds and other parks nationwide, plans a series of record-breaking events throughout the summer.

    "I do not think this is "local" news"...

    You're right, in fact, it's not news at all. It's trivia.

    Guiness Book was started to settle bar bets- so the dumber, the better. Would have to say most of the records in their book I wouldn't want.

    I'm thinking that Raleigh set a Tree Cutting Guiness World's Record as people cut debris off their houses and yards.

    Carowinds could only find 300 people to set this "record"?

    I could get more than that to a garage sale putting yard tools up for $1, hand them an egg, and ask them to color it.

    Stupid record. It's why I stopped paying attention to Guiness years ago. Fluff.

    I do not think this is "local" news, as Carowinds is at the SC NC border, a ways from Raleigh!
