Epic Photos of the World's Largest Ball Pit

Earlier this week, Kerry Hotel in Shanghai set a Guinness World Record for the Largest Ball Pit. How?

They conveniently filled the hotel's 82-foot long by 41-foot wide pool with a million pink and green balls. This record-breaking endeavor was part of the "Pink October" campaign aimed at raising awareness for breast cancer prevention. Kerry Hotel General Manager Peter Clarke said the ball pit was filled with "one million wishes." A close-up shot below shows one handwritten wish: "No Hungry Children."
