Hawaiian Falls will host hundreds of swimmers at each of its seven Texas water parks Friday, June 20, 2014 in an attempt to set a new record for the World's Largest Swimming Lesson.

Gates will open at 9 a.m. Friday. Participants must register by 9:45 a.m. Friday and can buy a special discounted ticket online for $19.99, which gets participants into the park for the event and allows them to stay and play all day. Hawaiian Falls season pass holders can participate for free and can register on-site Friday morning. Other participants should register online at http://www.hfalls.com/worlds-largest-swimming-lesson

The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson will begin at 10 a.m. sharp at thousands of locations around the globe. All ages are invited to participate. The lesson runs 30 minutes from start to finish.

In 2010, the inaugural event established the Guinness World Record for the largest simultaneous swimming lesson to build awareness about the importance of teaching children to swim to prevent drowning. Each year the event has grown and broken the previous record. Last year's event included more than 35,000 participants at 700+ locations – a 40%+ increase over the previous record.
