MASON, Ohio (AP) — A southwestern Ohio amusement park will try to top a Guinness record for the most heads shaved simultaneously to help raise awareness and money to fight cancer.

Kings Island says more than 200 hair stylists from Great Clips salons in Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, Cleveland, Lima and Toledo will shave heads Friday at the park north of Cincinnati.

The Guinness World Records website says the current record at 182 heads shaved simultaneously was achieved by Cancer Council ACT-Canberra Relay for Life at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra, Australia, on March 29.

Kings Island is owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company based in northwestern Ohio. Cedar Fair owns and operates ten other amusement parks, three outdoor water parks, an indoor water park, and five hotels.
