Six Flags Over Georgia is proud to announce that they have set a Guinness Book of World Record by having the most couples kissing under the mistletoe. The park announced a few weeks ago that it was announcing all couples from the Atlanta area and the surrounding area to participate in the record breaking attempt. 201 couples (402 people) participated in the mistletoe kiss record attempt, accompanied by romantic sprigs of mistletoe from www.mistletoeing.com. The event took place in the new mistletoe mansion section, and was sponsored by DenTek
From Six Flags Over Georgia:
Six Flags Over Georgia set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Most Couples Kissing Under the Mistletoe at Once, tonight, December 12, during the second season of its Holiday in the Park celebration. 201 couples (402 people) joined hands and kissed for at least 10 seconds under romantic sprigs of live mistletoe from Mistletoeing.com, to set the world record in the all-new Mistletoe Mansion section, during an event sponsored by DenTek.
“Holiday in the Park is a special time of year and tonight, our guests created a lifelong memory by kissing under mistletoe and setting a new world record at Six Flags Over Georgia,” said Park President Dale Kaetzel. “This holiday celebration is quickly becoming a growing family tradition in Atlanta and we look forward to many more memories that will be created this year and beyond.”
“This is the most exciting event I’ve been to. Everyone was so happy to participate in the record. It is a memory that will last a lifetime,” said GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Adjudicator Tavia Levy.
“We wanted to create a fun and out-of-the-box way to remind everyone how important it is to take care of their oral health throughout the busy holiday season, which can ultimately affect having kissable fresh breath. Partnering with Six Flags Over Georgia to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS is a perfect opportunity to remind everyone to stay mistletoe ready by flossing and protecting smiles,” said DenTek Brand Director Rachel Scharfman. “We are able to ensure that all of the participants had fresh breath for the kiss with our minty Comfort Clean Floss Picks with fluoride.”
