This time it is the ‘Longest Balloon Chain’ created by the Marina World. The chain branched out from the Central Dome of the Marina Mall into the passages measuring 14km in length with a total of 70,000 balloons. This was done in 10 days by Marina World, Fiesta Kuwait and Gulfnet. A Guinness World Records representative evaluated the balloon chain and declared it a new world record.
This was another of Marina World’s innovative attempts. They flew the largest flag in the world raised by helium balloons at the Marina Crescent for the National Day last year. This year Kuwait did it again by making the world’s longest flag for the 50/20 National celebrations.
It’s a good achievement but from the environmental point of view I hope they used latex balloons and dispose them off properly later on. Normally it takes about 6 – 10 months for a latex balloon to biodegrade compared to the 10 days it took to put them up.
