The previous Guinness world record for the World's Tallest Stack of Mattresses was 13 ½ feet.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest human mattress dominoes, achieved by 850 participants (all USA), at an event organised by La Quinta Inns & Suites, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.
A team of workers and a few hi-los were used to move and stack mattresses inside Art Van's warehouse in Warren.
