Coney Island Attempts World Record

Coney Island attempts to set the world record for most people down a water slide.

Any visitor to Coney Island between 12 p.m. on Friday, June 17 and 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 18 who slides down the Twister world record slide will help count toward the world record attempt. So what do you say? Are you up for the challenge?
The record attempt will occur on the green Twister body slide, and every who participates receives a free ticket to return in 2022. The attempt is to get the most people down a water slide in 24 hours. Think they can pull it off? Only one way to find out!

If you’re wondering if you can still get in on other Coney Island water park attractions, the answer is yes. Rides will be open on Friday, June 17 from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., and then from 8-  8:30 p.m. some attractions will temporarily close. But don’t fret –  all attractions will open back up for a special world record midnight swim event from 8:30 p.m. until 12 a.m. Everyone can enjoy special guest DJ Jay Kruz plus plenty of fun and prizes throughout the evening. At midnight, most Coney Island water park attractions will close but the Twister water slides will stay open for all 24 hours of the world record attempt.

Coney Island will remain open for the entire 24 hour period to maximize the number of sliders for the first time in 130 year history of the park! Check out the full event schedule and grab your tickets at
