It could be one for the record books as the Wet‘n’Wild waterpark in Brampton is taking part in the world’s largest swimming lesson.

Wet’n’Wild Toronto opened last weekend in Brampton and is inviting guests to take part in a Guinness Book of World Records attempt later this month and learn some safety tips at the same time.

The one-hour event on June 22 will see swimmers in Brampton learn about water safety along with simultaneous events in hundreds of communities all around the globe.

Thousands of swimmers are expected to take part in the globe-spanning swimming lesson and participants will also receive a $10.00 coupon for a future visit to Wet‘n’Wild on any operating day in 2023.

And on top of being included in the record book and a voucher, swimmers will also learn tips that could help save a life.

“Drowning is the leading cause of unintended death for children ages 1-4, ahead of car accidents, birth abnormalities and cancer,” Wet’n’Wild said in a release. It is also the second leading cause of unintended death for kids 4-14 and the third for adolescents ages 15-17.”

Guests are required to register for the event on the Wet’n’Wild website.

The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson has run live events and provided some 170,000 hours of water safety training to more than 354,000 people around the world since 2010.

The 45-acre outdoor waterpark is located at 7855 Finch Ave. W. at Highway 427 is open now on weekends from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will later open daily starting June 29.
