Over the weekend, Clinton Shepherd, Operations manager at Chicago Navy Pier, shattered the previous world record (30 hours and 36 seconds) for the "longest marathon on a fairground/theme park attraction" by riding the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel for 48 hours, 8 minutes, and 25 seconds (You'd have to purchase 384 tickets to do that on your own!)
His attempt was in honor of the Armed Forces and was capped off with a spectacular fireworks display over Lake Michigan.
The pier "tricked-out" his Gandola with curtains, pillows, a flat screen tv and even a chandelier!
Clinton could not sleep at all during the attempt and only got 5 minutes every hour for a bathroom break.

Congratulations Clinton from all of us here at OmniTicket Network!

Dollywood Splash Country opens this weekend and with it will be a brand new water ride to entice roller coaster lovers.
RiverRush opens to the public on Saturday. It's the first of its kind at Dollywood Splash Country and in Tennessee and one of only a handful in the country.
Dollywood gave 10News a sneak peak behind the scenes of the ride. The ride uses magnets to push the four person boat through the twisting tubes.
Wes Ramey of Dollywood said, "RiverRush is completely different. You can't get anything like this anywhere nearby. It's the only one in Tennessee, it's the first one. It's just like a roller coaster mixed with water. So, you can't go wrong with that. RiverRush truly is a rush so everyone will love to come out and try this ride."
Dollywood Splash Country opens for the 2013 season on Saturday & Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Dolly Parton plans to be at Dollywood to unveil the new ride on Friday.
