Late Friday morning, Action Park participated in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.

According to Action Park Marketing Director Scott Hostutler, some 30 area children turned out for the event. Hosted by aquatic centers, pools and water parks around the globe, the effort was an attempt to break an existing Guinness World Record. The message that the sponsors hoped to convey was “Swimming Lessons Save Lives” and as many as or more than 40,000 people were expected to participate. \

According to Hostutler, “Parents understand how important it is to protect their children by using car seats and requiring bike helmets. We believe the same should be true for teaching kids to swim.”

In return for their participation in the 30-minute free event, the eager learners each received a complimentary ticket to return to Action Park.
