Experience Days now holds the Guinness World Record for the ‘Highest Bungee Dunk’. The record was achieved as a part of the Guinness World Record Day Celebration, held annually on the third Sunday of November.

Experience Days Bungee Dunk World Record
We’re always looking for unique ways to share our experiences and there’s no better way than a Guinness World Record

Experience Days UK organised and successfully executed a Highest Bungee Dunk World Record at Bray Lake in Windsor, by dunking a McVitie's chocolate Hobnob from the dizzying height of 240ft and 10 inches. The record was set by bungee jump enthusiast Simon Berry, 24, and was completed after ten attempts.

After just failing to complete a Christmas-themed World Record attempt in aid of Bernardo’s children’s charity last December, Experience Days knew they needed to try something bigger and better to blow last year’s attempt out of the water. Managing Director Robb Young had this to say: “We’re always looking for unique ways to share our experiences and there’s no better way than a Guinness World Record.”

With planning starting in February 2016, the first attempt with doughnuts and coffee took place on August, but unfortunately after the 12th bungee jump it was too late in the day to continue, meaning the pressure was on the second attempt.

With Union Jack painted mugs, classic McVitie’s Hobnobs, and hot Yorkshire Tea at the ready, the British-themed Record attempt went far more smoothly. With nine practice jumps in the bag, the biscuit finally hit the tea on the tenth attempt, and the crowd went wild! Speaking to Simon afterwards, he said:

“This was insane, ridiculous and totally something I had to do! I have always wanted to be in the Guinness World Records book and this opportunity was too good to miss. Trying to maintain composure and accuracy as your adrenaline starts to pump is definitely the hardest part, I am glad I put the practise in. I’m probably eligible for the most bungee jumps in a weekend too after my training!”
