Who: The Kinetic King: 13th place in last summer’s America’s Got Talent, real name Tim Fort, already holds Guinness World Record for Largest Stick Bomb.

What: World Record attempt for chain reaction of most “Clever Levers”. Previous record of 600 elements was detonated last year on America’s Got Talent by the Kinetic King. This year he will attempt 750 elements.

Where: Family Museum, 2900 Learning Campus Drive, Bettendorf, Iowa

When: Saturday, March 24, 2012; detonation at 11:00 AM.

 

Last summer, NBC’s America’s Got Talent introduced the nation to the self-proclaimed “greatest purveyor of chain reaction gadgets in this and the 17 known universes,” the Kinetic King. Viewers fell in love with the Minnesota charm and the impressive chain reactions made from tongue depressors, ping pong balls, plastic cups, and more. View his debut appearance on YouTube. The King will be packing his gadgets and heading to the Quad Cities to build several super-cool kinetic structures at the Family Museum in Bettendorf, Iowa. He will host daily detonations Tuesday, March 20 – Friday, March 23 at 4:00pm. He will conclude his visit with a final detonation on Saturday, March 24 at 11:00am.

The Kinetic King, aka Tim Fort, holds the Guinness World Record for the “Largest Stick Bomb” using 3,864 tongue depressors. It was detonated on June 20, 2010 at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Fort creates displays all over the country (some successful and some not). Many of these attempts he posts to his YouTube page (user name LunaTim). The Kinetic King placed 13th overall in season 6 of America’s Got Talent.

“Oh wow!” –Howie Mandel, Season 6 America’s Got Talent

“Wow!” –Nick Cannon, Season 6 America’s Got Talent

“Do it again!” –Nick Cannon, Season 6 America’s Got Talent

“Weird, but interesting.” –Sharon Osbourne, Season 6 America’s Got Talent
