North Ridgeville school fails attempt to break Guinness World Record for most cereal boxes toppled in domino fashion

Lake Ridge Academy was hoping to topple 4,567 cereal boxes to break a Guinness World Record.

NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — Although they didn't succeed, it was still worth the try. Lake Ridge Academy in North Ridgeville attempted to break a Guinness World Record for the most cereal boxes toppled in a domino fashion Wednesday. Their goal? To knock down 4,567 cereal boxes during their record attempt.

But their attempt failed when the boxes stopped falling.

While they didn't break the record, it was still done for a good cause. Organizers say Lake Ridge Academy sourced more than 7,000 cereal boxes from students, parents and community collection partnerships with Mercy Health, the North Ridgeville Police Department and more than 20 corporate sponsors. Those cereal boxes will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank, North Ridgeville Community Care and other local food banks, organizers said.

The current world record is held by The Kansas City Centurions in Kansas City, Missouri. They toppled 3,990 cereal boxes in domino fashion on Jan. 24, 2020, according to Guinness World Records.

We streamed the entire record attempt live, which you can watch in the player below:

“Lake Ridge Academy students designed and set up the domino run, with support by the Lake Ridge Academy Parents Association volunteers,” according to a press release.
