After Maker Faire it seems that our friends went on to create the largest Mentos Geyser in history for the Guinness World Records! (pictured here, some of the action by The Enquirer/Jeff Swinger).

A total of 504 Mentos geysers launched on Fountain Square this evening, pointing Cincinnati toward the Guinness Book of World Records for something no one previously had done.

The event lasted mere seconds. After a countdown, the hundreds of poncho-wearing participants pulled a toothpick from a tube that was holding six Mentos, releasing the candies into a 2-liter Diet Coke bottle.
