Did you know that the record for riding Jurassic Park – The Ride at Universal Studios Hollywood was a whopping 60 times in one day? I didn’t either, but apparently two friends set that high bar in 2015. With the attraction set to close this September to make way for a Jurassic World upgrade, a local Los Angeles couple, Chelsea and Devin, wanted to break that record before the ride goes away forever — and that wasn’t the only plan for the day. Devin kept his big secret from Chelsea until right after their record breaking ride, then he popped the question. Take a look:

Fun facts:

  • Chelsea and Devin rode an official 62 times on Tuesday July 17th, 2018 for 13 hours.
  • Even with a few quick breaks throughout the day they managed to surpass the previous unofficial record reported by Buzzfeed in 2015, which was held by two best friends who rode it 60 times.
  • The engagement ring was a custom made misquote amber ring inspired by the amber rocks from the Jurassic Park film franchise.
  • Universal Pictures donated an official Barbasol can prop replica for the proposal.
