For the last few weeks Nickelodeon, Ninja Pizza, and others have been promoting the opening of the new Shell Shock ride at the Mall of America. Today (March 17th, 2012) was the big day and hundreds of people arrived including Ninja Pizza’s very own Roseangelo and Terrible2z’s tOkKa! So many fans dressed as the turtles arrived that they broke the Guinness World Record for the most people dress as Ninja Turtles. Fans from across the nation traveled to Mall of America to break the previous record of 786 with 836 fans dressed as Ninja Turtles.
“The passion of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans blew this record out of the water with 836 fans dressed as ninja turtles,” said Michael Empric, adjudicator with Guinness World Records.
Congratulations Nickelodeon and everyone else involved in setting this new world record. Be sure to check out the Shell Shock ride and even meet the TMNT when you are there. Check their appearance schedule to see when they will be there.
