Largest Human Pyramid

Lac Du Flambeau, Wisconsin, United States / July 1, 2007

Ben Jenkins and 14 of his friends formed a record-breaking human pyramid.

- each pyramid row must have one fewer person than the row below it
- top row may only have one person
- no outside support permitted to keep pyramid balanced; URDB balancing criteria applies

    "b: each tier of the pyramid must be one person greater than the tier below it" that would be an upside down pyramid

    idk man all of your requirements seemed to be the best.. maybe another one should be that all of the people should have matching clothes like the Spaniards do lol.. but other than that yours make it pretty straight forward and "beatable"

    Snapdragon, I agree with you. Any other stipulations beyond the ones I suggested above? You're the category creator, so you should lead this dialogue.

    I am the person who posted this record and yes ive seen that video where the people in Spain do that every year. but i do agree there needs to be stiulations.. idk how this isnt a pyramid tho 4-3-2-1 tier does make a pyramid.. the thing that the Spaniards made was like a tower not a pyramid

    We need to create some specs for this category. What defines a Human Pyramid? Guinness includes this feat, which clearly involves more people and goes a lot higher: http://bit.ly/LGZcO That said, I would question whether the Spaniards truly formed a "pyramid." I suggest we stipulate that for this category a: people must balance on their hands and knees, b: each tier of the pyramid must be one person greater than the tier below it and c: the record setters can use no external support for balance, people or otherwise. Thoughts?
