Kings Island park in Ohio tries for record on applying sunscreen to support cancer research

MASON, Ohio — A southwest Ohio amusement park has another record-breaking attempt lined up to benefit the fight against cancer.

Kings Island in Mason hopes Saturday to top the currently recognized world record of 1,822 people applying sunscreen at the same time. The event is meant to raise awareness of melanoma.

The park says the Cincinnati Reds’ All-Star third baseman Todd Frazier will join park visitors in the sunscreen event.

Last week, the park laid claim to a mass head-shaving record as part of its Kicks Cancer campaign.

On Aug. 1, it counted 213 people getting their heads shaved simultaneously. Earlier this year, 182 heads were shaved at once by a cancer charity in Australia.

The record claims are subject to certification by the Guinness World Records.
