THE ST. LOUIS WHEEL CELEBRATES GROUNDHOG DAY – Ride the Wheel — Then Ride It Again

SO NICE YOU’LL RIDE IT TWICE

Will the St. Louis Wheel see its shadow on Groundhog Day? Will it predict six more weeks of winter weather?

THE SCIENCE OF GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS OPEN NOW AT CITY MUSEUM

New Exhibition Reveals the Shocking Science

Behind the World’s Greatest Achievements

St. Louis – Open now open through April 14 at City Museum, The Science of Guinness World Records reveals the secrets behind some of the most astonishing GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ to ever be set. 

Spread across 5,000 square feet in City Museum’s Architecture Hall, the exhibit will let guests achieve the amazing as they break records across the multiple stations by learning how bodies react, focus, and endure. 

“The exhibition was really inspired by the success of The Science of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not,” said Guy Labine, Chief Executive Officer of Science North. “We’ve seen firsthand that people all over the world are hungry to be challenged, to be wowed, to expand their ideas about what human beings can actually do. We knew almost immediately that we were onto something big.” 

Certain to be an experience to remember for a lifetime, The Science of Guinness World Records will leave visitors astonished as they discover exactly what goes into accomplishing the seemingly impossible. How does one develop the ability to do 36 consecutive pull-ups, using only their pinky fingers? What does it take for someone to create the world’s smallest stop motion film? What possesses someone to learn how to solve not one but three Rubik’s Cubes simultaneously?

The Science of Guinness World Records is co-produced by Science North, one of Canada’s largest and most respected science centers, and Ripley’s Entertainment, the entertainment and edutainment company founded by the great Robert Ripley.

“Our record holders are simply the most incredible people you’re ever going to meet,” says John Corcoran, Director, Traveling Shows & Guinness World Records Attraction Development. “They defy belief and they often seem to defy physics and the nature of spacetime itself. But of course, what they’re really defying is our limited sense of what a person can do with enough time, enough practice, and enough dedication.”

“What we’re hoping to do with The Science of Guinness World Records is to show people that as shocking as these accomplishments are, it’s not magic. It’s science. If one person can achieve the incredible, so can you. We want to inspire people of all ages to throw out their limiting beliefs and push themselves to achieve what the world tells them is impossible.”

The Science of Guinness World Records is included with General Admission or a Member Pass and operates during normal museum hours. City Museum is located at 750 N. 16th Street, St. Louis, MO 63103; 314-231-2489. Visit citymuseum.org for more information. Follow City Museum on social media @citymuseum.

The last time gold medals were made from solid gold was at the Stockholm Games in 1912, following which the medals were cast in silver and coated in 6 g of gold.
