Special Theme Domino Day 2008
‘Celebrating 10 years of Domino Day- Breaking more World Records than ever-‘ was the central theme of this year's spectacular edition. In coöperation with the Guinness Book of Record, we managed to find ten records in which we established the domino toppling record. Records you can think of are the biggest stones, the highest climb, the longest wall and several other exciting records were shown during the live show!

Setting up 4.500.000 dominoes is hard work, often on hands and knees, and requires an enormous amount of concentration and dedication.
