So we've all seen how creative parks sometimes get with their marketing of new attractions, especially when it comes to milking incredibly niche World Records.  What are some of your favorite weird records that parks have advertised, or what are some records you can think of on your own?

Fury 325 as the World's Tallest Giga is what really sent me...

Also, I'm pretty sure that Six Flags Magic Mountain is the only theme park in the world with two different mobius loop coasters.  That could be something.

Wait til you see how tall Elitch Gardens' Boomerang is!

Firebird: the 1st and only floorless coaster in all of...Maryland. The best part is that there are 3 other floorless coasters not far from SFA (Dominator, Hydra, Bizzarro), so they can't actually

Didn't Blackpool once claim a record for Big One of way taller than it actually was by saying "above sea level" or something crazy like that?!?!

Yes, that's right, it's always been marketed as being 235ft tall which is the height above sea level. By that measure, Nemesis is 475ft tall.

Big One's actual height is 213ft which I think still made it the tallest at the time. The speed record was always disputed by Kennywood with Steel Phantom.

And then Desperado opened at Buffalo Bill's and was recognized by Guinness World Records as the tallest even though it was 4 feet shorter than Big One and tied with Steel Phantom for drop height.  So much drama....

Although, by Blackpool's measuring standards, Desperado is actually about 2,800 ft tall.
