Try your skills for a chance to go down in the record-breaking history books!

Join us tomorrow, Thursday, June 10 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Copley Place on Dartmouth Street (across the street from Back Bay Station/Orange Line) as we host a non-stop record setting event as part of our yearlong 10th anniversary celebration and in recognition of having the most nonstop destinations out of Boston’s Logan International Airport. Bostonians will have an opportunity to secure a spot in The Universal Record Database, the “definitive site for human achievement,” for a chance to win* one of ten JetBlue Getaways!

We’re planning 10 off-beat and entertaining stunts where participants will try their luck at setting a variety of non-stop records, including the longest:

  • Juggling of airplane bags of cashews
  • Airplane imitation
  • Single breath captain’s announcement
  • Rhyming chain with the word “blue”

We’ll also host a special record attempt featuring a non-stop, 4-hour Karaoke session featuring flight-related songs!

In town to host the event Dan Rollman, co-founder and president of The Universal Record Database will be overseeing the record attempts and awarding a record holder for each off-the-wall air travel-inspired challenge. All 10 category winners receive a free, roundtrip, vacation getaway, on us.

Now who would pass that up?!
