Aiming to highlight the country of Jordan as a fun tourist destination, Mobile network operator Orange Jordan, along with Ziyad Mazzawi Corporation and Monaco Business Development organised an exciting record-breaking event last week billed as “Slide Jordan”.
The attempt saw the creation of the Longest slip and slide the world has ever seen, measuring a staggering 611.7 m (2,006 ft 10 in).
To put it into perspective, the slide is nearly as long as Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is tall (828 m) – and that's the Tallest building ever.
Following the Guinness World Records guidelines, the slide was a continuous thin plastic sheet that was covered in water to make it slippery – and it was ridden from start to finish.
Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Sam Mason attended the event and was thrilled to confirm that Jordan had successfully achieved the title.
President of Monaco Business Development and director of the project, Mona Naffa said: “We are thrilled with the outcome of this amazing project, it truly highlights Jordan as a family fun destination.”
This record is yet another record-breaking success from Ziyad Mazzawi Corporation and Monaco Business Development which created the Largest human floating image with 261 participants in the Dead Sea, Amman, Jordan almost exactly a year ago. However, this record was broken in Turkey earlier this year.
