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!
