Breaking a World Record? It's as Easy as Falling Off a Log!
MELTON MOWBRAY, England, July 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

'Dangerous' Dave is attempting to set a new world record by spending over 24 hours on a Log Flume! To break the current world record Dangerous Dave will be subject to a 30ft plummet over a thousand times.
Thrill seeking; Dangerous Dave has been persuaded to take on the record by fellow Gem 106 presenters Sam & Amy.
The record attempt is taking place today and tomorrow at Twinlakes Theme Park in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire and began at Thursday 14th of July at 7.30am.
The precise record Dangerous Dave is attempting is the 'longest time continuously riding an attraction at a theme park'. The record currently belongs to Blaine Martin who in 2004 rode a Ferris Wheel non-stop for 24 hours and 9 minutes in San Angelo Texas.
Gem 106 Breakfast Presenter and adrenaline junkie 'Dangerous' Dave said: "Everyone is saying how tough the breaking the record is going to be, but to be honest I'm not particularly worried. I've been on loads of rides over the years; I think it is going to be great fun... You don't get a name like 'Dangerous' Dave without being able to back it up."
Twinlakes Park Manager Sandy Gyorvari said: "We are delighted to host such an exciting event; we have full confidence in Dangerous Dave, We have even taken a spare log to the studio for Dave to practice in, however we are not sure that his training regime of sitting in a static log while colleagues throw water and wet sponges at him will sufficiently prepare him!"
