The Guinness World Records world record for the longest stuffed snake measured 1,768.8 m (5,803 ft 1.66 in), and was achieved by Hastings Community House (Australia), in Hastings, Victoria, Australia, on 22 March 2013.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest toy wagon; it measures 8.05 m (26 ft 5 in) long, 3.548 m (11 ft 8 in) tall and 3.59 m (11 ft 9 in) wide, achieved by Robert Pasin (USA) at the Radio Flyer Headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, USA, on 20 December 2016.
"I made the world's largest Super Soaker as a follow up to my World's Largest Nerf Gun. It shoots at 2,400 psi and 243 mph."
Mark Rober showed off the capabilities of the 7-foot-long water gun, which holds the World Record for the world's largest Super Soaker, on his YouTube channel by firing highly pressurized streams of water at various household items.
The massive water gun managed to slice watermelons, bananas and hot dogs in half, split open a soda can and shatter a line of wine goblets with jets of water traveling 272 mph.
Rober's substantial Super Soaker is pressurized at 2,400 pounds per square inch, eight times the pressure of a fire truck hose.
It took Rober and his friends about six months to construct the record-breaking Super Soaker and he celebrated its completion with a water fight against family and friends armed with much smaller water guns.
