Guiness Record Broken: World’s Largest Human Mattress Domino

World’s “Largest Human Mattress Domino”
Breaks Current Guinness World Record
Contributes 850 Mattresses for the City’s Homeless

On the count of three, the first person will fall back on their mattress, toppling onto the next. And it won't be over until all 850 people drop one-by-one and the final mattress is down, shattering the current world record. A Guinness adjudicator was on-site to verify the attempt’s success and present the World Record certificate. The largest human mattress dominoes was achieved by 550 participants at an event organized by Margareta Maria Instituut Kortemark in Kortemark, Belgium, on 7 April 2011. This video is a fun, great visual for your audience.

Record was broken Tuesday, February 28, 2012 @ 8:00 am at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Hall in New Orleans, LA. La Quinta Inns & Suites and Simmons Bedding Company will donate the 850 wrapped mattresses used in the record attempt to the Mayor’s Homeless Initiatives and various local charities at the conclusion of the event.

About 850 La Quinta GMs, owners, employees, executives and guests will man one mattress for each La Quinta hotel in the country. They will arrange their mattresses in a special mattress-domino pattern designed by “Domino Wizard” Robert Speca.
