Louisa Co. Teens Recognized For Bounce House World Record
A group of Louisa County teens got the recognition they worked hard for Thursday night as Official World Record Holders. Last July, they jumped in a bounce house for 27 hours in a row. The group had to have at least one person bouncing at all times.
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad presented the official certificates at the annual Celebrate Louisa dinner. The teens are excited to see how long the record holds up.
"It's pretty cool the Governor is coming, too. And I've been waiting for something to come up and it finally did," said Logan Osborn, a 16-year-old Louisa-Muscatine student.
The teens also raised several thousand dollars through sponsors during the record attempt, which will go toward a new Louisa County Youth Center. The previous record for the longest duration in a bouncy castle by a team was 26 hours set by a group in Ohio in 2011.
