Jan. 31 (UPI) -- A group of more than 500 sledders at a ski resort in Austria set a new world record for the longest chain of sleds.
Bramberg Tourist Office and Waldkogel Mountain Railways gathered 508 sleds at Wildkogel Arena Neukirchen ski resort in Bramberg to claim the Guinness World Record for "Longest chain of sleds."
The line of sleds stretched about 2,460 feet as the group traveled down a slope while keeping all 508 sleds connected throughout the trip.
Managers of Waldkogel Mountain Railways Rudolf Gostl and Bernhard Gruber were proud of the achievement which vastly exceeded the previous record of 50 sleds.
"The organizational effort was worthwhile," they said. "We are proud and delighted to have achieved the world record title in the Wildkogel Arena...a really sensational event!"
