Global Village brings the international community together to break latest Guinness World Records™ title

Overview

The Wheel of the World took 73 guests from 73 countries on a ride to claim the Silver Jubilee Season’s 22nd record in partnership with Arabian Radio Network

 

Dubai, UAE – 12 April 2021: Global Village, the UAE and wider region's leading multicultural family destination, has moved closer to its target of 25 Guinness World Records™ in honor of the Silver Jubilee anniversary. This past Saturday, April 10th, the park claimed its 22nd title of Season 25, breaking the record for "Most nationalities on a theme park ride". The latest accomplishment is particularly significant, as it reflects the core reflecting the park's multicultural nature and reaffirming its prestige as a place where cultures from all four corners of the world come together. The iconic Wheel of the World completed one full round with 73 guests from 73 countries, where participants enjoyed the panoramic view of Global Village. The record is also a testament to the UAE's status as an international beacon for diversity and cultural inclusion.

 

In the build-up to Saturday's record-breaking attempt, Global Village launched a campaign in partnership with Arabian Radio Network (ARN). RJs from all nine radio stations called for multi-national families of Dubai to join in the record breaking fun. To ensure continued compliance with the highest standards of safety, the invitation was extended to members of the same household with multiple nationalities. Thanks to the overwhelming response from ARN listeners, Global Village succeeded in bringing this record to Dubai from Sweden where it had stood since July 2012. Each participant was gifted a Silver Ticket as a souvenir of this special day and will also receive an official participation certificate from Guinness World Records™ to show the world that they too are “officially amazing”.
