Guinness World Records™

"For the longest sledge chain of the world"

508 sledders set a new world record – the world’s longest chain of sledders linked up and rumbled down the hillside. Which earned them an entry in the book of Guinness World Records™. Lena Kuhlmann from Guinness World Records™ presented the prestigious certificate in Bramberg.

The world-record attempt took place on 22 January 2017, on the world’s longest floodlit sled run (14 km in length and dropping 1300 vertical meters) located in Wildkogel-Arena Neukirchen & Bramberg.

508 linked-up sledders took on the challenge and, in magical conditions in front of a fantastic crowd of spectators, managed to set the new world record. The astonishing 750 meters-long chain of sledders slid down the 650 m course in just over four minutes, doing so in perfect sync.  The world record sledders were led by two-time natural-track tobogganing world champion Lea Geiger from Zillertal. All participants can now proudly sport their personal “Guinness World Records™ Holder Medal”, while the official Guinness World Records™ certificate was accepted with great joy by the organizers from Wildkogel Lift Company.

“Our organizing efforts were rewarded. We are over the moon and very proud to have brought this world record title to the Wildkogel Arena. Already an unofficial record holder as the world’s longest floodlit sled run,  meandering a total of 14 km from the Wildkogel down to Bramberg, the region is now proud to boast an undisputed Guinness World Records™ title. That truly is a special event“, proudly proclaim Rudolf Göstl and Bernhard Gruber from the Wildkogel Lift Company.

Since last summer, the over 20-person team from the Wildkogel Lift Company and Bramberg Tourist Office had been busy making all the preparations. In addition to the 508 sledders, on the day of the event more than 80 volunteers and security staff also gave it their all to insure the world record attempt would succeed. The certificate and title were awarded, and given a befitting celebration, at the World Record Party hosted afterwards at the valley station of the Smaragdbahn lift.
