Kissimmee to host pool-based Guinness stunt

Posted By on Thu, Jun 5, 2014 at 5:21 PM


If you've always dreamed of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records but have never been sure just how, we have a suggestion: head down to Kissimmee's Bob Makinson Aquatic Center on June 20 to participate in the world's largest swimming lesson, presented by an organization aptly named the World's Largest Swimming Lesson that set up the same thing last year. Register by 10 a.m. to be in the pool at 11, splashing around a swim lesson that will span five continents. Surely this will be more beneficial for you than attempting to eat the world's largest burrito or fighting the world's angriest swarm of bees.

For more info, call the Bob Makinson Aquatic Center at 407-870-7665. See you in the deep end!
