Global Village breaks 6th Guinness World Record™ title of Season 25 for the Largest Admission Ticket ever as limited edition silver-plated tickets go on sale


Replicas of the world’s largest admission ticket can now be purchased online, with only 2,500 Silver Jubilee anniversary collectable tickets available 

Dubai, UAE: Global Village, the UAE and wider region’s leading multicultural family destination for culture, shopping, and entertainment, has broken the 6th of 25 Guinness World Record™ titles they are attempting as part of the 25th season celebrations. The largest admission ticket of all-time is an impressive 1.1 square meter. Limited edition, souvenir replicas of the ticket, are officially on sale to commemorate the record and the Silver Jubilee anniversary. The beautifully crafted, numbered and fully functioning silver-plated tickets are a perfect tribute to the park’s storied history and latest record-breaking achievement. 

Jaki Ellenby, Executive Director of Marketing and Events, Global Village, said: “So many people in the UAE have grown up visiting Global Village and we wanted to create a very special commemorative piece for our loyal guests to treasure as a souvenir of this milestone year. As part of our Jubilee celebrations we are attempting no less than 25 Guinness World Records, so it is fitting that this unusual memorabilia is also a souvenir of one of these records.” 

This past Thursday, December 10th, a 2.7 metre tall “guest” entered the park through the entrance gate using a ticket measuring 1.02m2. The guest was greeted by Guinness World Record official adjudicator who confirmed that the fully operational ticket is indeed the Largest Admission Ticket in the world. The ticket will be displayed at the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!® museum attraction until the end of the season. 

Just 2,500 tickets have been created and they can be purchased exclusively through Global Village’s brand new website or mobile app. This unique collectible is valid for 25 entries and is priced at AED 250. The Silver Tickets can be collected after purchase from the Guest Care Centre at Gate of the World. Each ticket is only valid for 1 guest who can simply scan the QR Code on the back of the ticket at the gate to enter the park. Elegantly packaged, the ticket also makes a perfect gift for loved ones this holiday season.
