The world's Longest domino toppling


THE WORLD'S LONGEST
DOMINO TOPPLING

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the longest domino toppling in the world?

On November 18 2005 the annual domino challenge was held by Weijers Domino Productions in Holland.

Over 4 million dominoes were set up as they were in the past few years.

This 2005 challenge was marred by controversy.

First, on November 14th a sparrow made it into the hall and knocked over 23,000 dominoes. After a futile effort at catching the bird and fear of more unscheduled domino toppling, a animal control expert was called in and shot the bird.

To make things worse a local DJ offered $3,500.00 to anyone that could topple the dominoes before the event.

A Dutch-language song, 'De Domino Mus' or 'The Domino Sparrow' was recorded by staff of the station Radio Eenhoorn and went on sale.

Finally on the day of the event 4,155,476 dominoes fell, beating the 2005 record of 3,992,397 dominoes, but one of the team members cheated and 153,340 dominoes were ruled void.

In total 4,002,146 officially fell, still setting the new record for the world's longest domino toppling.

UPDATE: February 27, 2009

In 2007 at the domino challenge in Leeuwarden, Netherlands 4,400,000 dominoes were set up, out of which 4,079,381 fell setting a new world record.

A year later, in 2008, again in Leeuwarden, Netherlands 4,500,00 dominoes were set up and a new record was set when the 4,345,027th domino fell.
