Luna Park World Record Attempt!

Buckle up, get set, go!

Melbourne’s Luna Park is gearing up for a world record attempt ‚Äì with all proceeds going to The Song Room!

Melbourne’s Luna Park is gearing up to take on the world record for the longest bumper car marathon with employee, Jessica Drowley, set to burn rubber from 6:00am on 28th August to 12:00pm on 29th August.

With months of preparation already under her (seat) belt, Jessica plans to drive for a whopping 30 hours straight, with just a five-minute break. Giuliano Casadei, who rode for 27 hours straight in 2013, currently holds the record for the longest ride. Not content with just beating the record, Jessica plans to up Giuliano’s time by an extra 3 hours!

You can support Jessica in her attempt by donating to The Song Room today!

Spectators are also welcome to view this test of endurance with the park open throughout the record attempt. Night owls can expect various activities after dark including a silent disco and DJ appearances.

“Luna Park was home to the first bumper car ride in Australia so it’s the perfect spot to challenge the record. I know I am crazy but I have always wanted to have my name next to a world record and what better way to do it than by raising money for a charity close to my heart!” said Luna Park employee Jessica Drowley.

“For over ten years now, The Song Room has been engaging young people through creativity in our music and arts programs. Luna Park is one of Melbourne’s most treasured icons with a shared ideal of providing engaging and enriching experiences to young people, and The Song Room is thrilled to be a charity partner of this wonderful institution. A very special thank you from all of us on behalf of the many children who will benefit from your support.” said The Song Room CEO Caroline Aebersold.

To get involved, visit, or come and join the action at Luna Park Melbourne, any time from 6:00am Friday 28th August to midday Saturday 29th August.

Good luck Jes!
