UNITED ARAB EMIRATES TO TAKE ON ANOTHER GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT

WHAT: GUINNESS WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
WHEN: 31ST DECEMBER 2018
WHERE: RAS AL KHAIMAH UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
COST: FREE

Once again, the skies over the beautiful Al Marjan Island will be lit with fireworks, both in celebration of the coming year and in this case, another Guinness World Record attempt.

This year the region will be trying to lift the title of World Record Holder for the Longest Straight-Line Firework Display. The current record, according to GBOWR is an incredible 11.83 kilometers but the event on New Year's Eve in the UAE is set to blast this out of the water.

The line will be measured from the first bank of fireworks to the last with each station not more than 2 kilometers apart and each site firing at least 300 kilograms of pyro and the attempt MUST last a minimum of 5-minutes.

The beautiful City of Ras Al Khaimah is trying to raise its profile on the world stage in a bid to make it THE go-to destination to try to compete with the more popular places like Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Plans are for the display to last 12 minutes and will be under the control of the professional firing team from Fireworks by Grucci. They were also responsible for last New Year’s Record-Breaking Shell launch beating the size and weight of the previous winner by a considerable margin.

There are viewing areas all around Al Marjan Islands as well as a choice of family orientated activities which will be open from around 5pm including food trucks, ice cream salons, lemonade corners, live music and performances and face painting for the kids. The shopping mall will also be open for those of you desperate to do a spot of buying.

We will, of course, bring you the news and whether the attempt was successful in the New Year and in the meantime, a very Happy New Year from all at Epic Firework.
