Sacramento Kings fans set new world record for crowd roar multiple times
by James Ham & Jonathan Santiago
With the good folks from Guinness on hand, Sacramento Kings fans set a new world record not once, not twice, but three times tonight for loudest crowd roar in an indoor arena.
Fans broke the previous record of 106.6 decibels by Milwaukee Bucks fans on Dec. 20, 2008 in the first quarter, pushing the decibel meter to 119.7 decibels. They did it again at halftime, pushing the meter to a blaring 122.6 decibels. They did it for a final time in between the third and fourth quarters, pushing the meter to an ear-shattering 126 decibels.
A Guinness Book of World Records adjudicator was on hand to present the Kings with a certificate of the record. It was set by a packed house of 17,317 fans, the Kings’ third sellout of the season. See videos of the record being broken below.
