Global Village makes history with 25th world record


DUBAI – Global Village claimed its 25th Guinness World Record by breaking the “highest altitude skydiving fireworks display” title on its closing night on Sunday (May 2).

Global Village partnered with Skydive Dubai to break the record and provide guests with a spectacular finale to the season. Watch it here:

The 20 skydivers jumped from an altitude of more than 15,000 feet, lighting the skies with 78 fireworks representing the 78 cultures who were present in Global Village during the 25th season.

Once the evidence was validated, the Guinness World Record Official presented Bader Anwahi, CEO of Global Village, with the 25th certificate of the Season.

Anwahi then pressed the famed Global Village Fireworks Button to launch the final display of the season.

“It seems like just yesterday that we took the decision to attempt 25 records in just 6 months as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations. It has been an incredible journey… not always easy, but always exciting and our team rose to the challenge with passion and resilience,” said Jaki Ellenby, Executive Director of Marketing at Global Village.
