CANTON — This Halloween, Sorrells Street Park in Canton is going to be abuzz over a world record-setting event.
On Tuesday, Oct. 31, visitors to the park will be greeted by a mammoth inflatable structure, one that Jamie Howell Fuentes hopes will break a record for being the largest-ever inflatable haunted house.
“We came up with this idea and decided to do a Guinness Book of World Records attempt … and this is what we come up with,” she said.
Fuentes, along with teaching at A-B Tech, is with ATT Fit, the organization that came up with the idea for the event. ATT (Athletic Teachers and Trainers) Fit is an organization that promotes a “fit mind body and spirit,” Fuentes said.
Fuentes, who also taught for 13 years in Enka, said the haunted house will be comprised of several inflatable houses, provided by Whoo’s Bouncing, that will be connected to form a maze. But that isn’t all. Along with the haunted house, Fuentes said there will be plenty of other food and entertainment options.
“We’ve got a DJ coming out for a dance party,” she said.
The current record for the world’s largest inflatable haunted house is 450 square-meters, and Fuentes said Tuesday’s effort should end in a 629 square-meter maze. On-site will be a certified inspector to determine the actual size of the haunted house.
“Everyone who is there will get a certificate saying they were there for the world record,” she said.
