 The Guinness World Records world record for the largest baking soda and vinegar volcano is 8.62 m (28 ft 3.3 in) tall, achieved by pupils, parents and staff of Elmfield Steiner School (UK), when measured and demonstrated at their premises in Stourbridge, UK, on 9 May 2015.

     Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most active volcano; it is Kilauea, in Hawaii, USA, erupting on a continuous basis since 1983. Lava is being discharged at a rate of 5 m³(7 yd³ or 176 ft³) per second.


    "It's something really exciting that OMSI has always wanted to do in terms of breaking a world record," Libby Trobitz of the museum said.

   "I think it's going to be a lot of fun, hands on science."

   An estimated crowd of 3,000 people gathered at the museum on Sunday as they poured about sixty-six gallons of vinegar and 50 gallons of a baking soda-water mixture into the massive volcano as reddish liquid poured from the top.

   The volcano was constructed to celebrate OMSI's "POMPEII: THE EXHIBITION" exhibit and museum event planner Sonali Shivdasani said she is "100 percent confident" it will set the world record.

    The current Guinness world record holder, a 27-foot volcano was built by Elmfield Rudolf Steiner School in the United Kingdom.
