NEW YORK, Oct. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Six Flags theme parks across the U.S. and Mexico will take part in a worldwide attempt to set a new world record for the largest simultaneous dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller on Saturday, October 24 at 8:30 p.m. EDT along with all coordinating time zones in 42 countries comprising five continents.
This is the Thrill the World organization's third attempt to set a new record, with a goal of 10,000 to 50,000 individuals dancing to Thriller. In the wake of Jackson's untimely death in June, organizers say this year's event is intended to be an unprecedented global celebration of the music icon's life and legacy.

Guests with park admission are welcome to sign up and participate.
