UPI News Service, 10/08/2007 

Around 450 North Dakota high school students have taken a video of themselves apparently playing the largest ever game of Twister.

The video will be sent into the Guinness Book of World Records for review, The Fargo (N.D.) Forum reported Monday.

The spine-bending event was held as part of the North Dakota Distributive Education Clubs of America Fall Leadership Conference held at the Fargo Holiday Inn.

State DECA adviser Kevin Reisenauer said he was confident that the world record for the largest Twister mat was broken.

Students prepared for the attempt by contacting Hasbro and getting them to donate 180 Twister mats, as well as contacting Guinness officials. Twister was patented in 1969.

Mats used in Sunday's attempt measured 4,699 square feet, nearly double the current record of 2,453 square feet.

DECA officials have 30 days to get the video to Guinness officials in the United Kingdom.
