Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people firewalking consecutively is 608 people and was achieved by Eastbourne Scouts, in Eastbourne, Wellington, New Zealand.

The structure's skeleton was made from steel with cardboard wrapped along the sides. It was soaked in diesel and petrol and set alight. The entire tunnel had to be on fire while the duo drove through for the record attempt to be recognised.
The air inside the burning tunnel is superheated and should anything had gone wrong, there would have been little chance for the firefighters to intervene.
