Still smeared with sunscreen that hadn't been rubbed in yet and with deflated beach balls in hand, a few hundred Cedar Point visitors lined up to enter the park after setting two world records Sunday morning.

Shortly after 9 a.m., 401 visitors bounced beach balls in the air for 10 seconds to set the world record.

After deflating their beach balls and adding another few hundred people to the crowd, participants ripped open their half-ounce foil packets of Panama Jack sunscreen and waited for the signal to start.

Shielding themselves with SPF 35, participants lathered arms, legs, necks and noses with the lotion, and mothers made sure their little ones were covered in all the right places.

Beach ball bouncing was a brand new record.

The sunscreen event topped the previous record by only six people. It was first set in Belgium last month, said Philip Robertson, the Guinness World Records judge visiting from New York.

Yeah a record of Stupidest Business Idea.  Companys cant give out thousands of free products, plus if they dont charge for stuff we dont get the money in taxes.

There was a 3rd World Record Set on Saturday in downtown Sandusky.  2 more broken windows now have boards in them so Sandusky now is the wooden window capital of the world.  Detroit had the old record.
