Dragon Ball Guinness World Records Attempt
The 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure will open with a special Guinness World Records attempt to become the largest gathering of people simultaneously performing the iconic Kamehameha super energy attack move.
Fans gathered on Wednesday, July 17 at 3:30 p.m. at the 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure on the Marriott Marina Terrace at the Marriot Marquis San Diego. The first 1,000 participants who arrived received a free Dragon Ball Scouter accessory to wear during the Guinness World Records attempt. The Kamehameha super energy attack move was led by actor Sean Schemmel, the English voice of Dragon Ball character Goku. Guinness World Records was onsite to supervise and validate the record attempt. We know the previous record was shattered but are awaiting an official tally of how many participated.
