World record for howling at family farm park
A Bedfordshire scream park has smashed the Guinness World Record for most people howling, when 464 enthusiastic visitors howled for the required minute.
The previous record of 296 people howling was set in 2013 by students at St Cloud State University in Minnesota, USA.
The Howling word record attempt was held on Saturday to mark the opening night of The Howl, a new scream park Halloween attraction at Mead Open Farm near Leighton Buzzard.
Matt Heast, from Mead Open Farm, said: "It was fantastic to listen to nearly 500 people howling in unison. Some of the participants really got into the spirit of the event and came dressed as werewolves.
"It has been an amazing opening night and we look forward to welcoming many more visitors to The Howl between now and Halloween."
Mead Open Farm is well-known as a family farm park and runs its popular Freaky Fortnight spooky Halloween daytime event for families during October half term.
