Thursday, August 02, 2012 #644 - Breaking a World Record

As theme park fans, we've all done marathons on our favorite rides when the lines aren't long.

Maybe we've been lucky enough to stay on our favorite roller coaster for several laps in a row on a slow day at the park.

But most of us haven't had to endure staying on an amusement park ride for more than 24-hours in a row.

On this week's show, we'll talk to Robbie Gibson... he's better known as "Robbie the Intern" on 104.9 Virgin Radio in Edmonton, Canada.

Last week, he set the Guinness World Record for the "Longest Marathon on a Fairground/Theme Park Attraction" at 30 hours and 30 seconds!

We'll find out all about his record-setting attempt and what challenges he endured along the way.

Plus, it's possible that Robbie might have inspired one of the guys to break the record in 2013!

We also go to the Voicemail Line to hear from listeners about their encounters with rude guests at the parks.  From line jumpers to people who want to fist-fight... we'll cover it all!

And, we have a Live Trip Report from Six Flags Great America in Chicago plus much, much more!
