The Talking Board Historical Society set the new world record for the largest Ouija board with the 9,000-pound OuijaZilla.
OuijaZilla was unveiled in Salem, MA on October 12, 2019 and officially took the crown for the world’s largest Ouija board from the previous record holder, the Grand Midway Hotel.
Weighting in at an estimated 9,000 pounds, OuijaZilla is made of 99 sheets of plywood and measures 3,168 square feet. The planchette is 400 pounds on its own and measures 15.5 feet long and 10 feet at its widest point, but can be effortlessly moved across the board by just one person (or spirit?), Ripley’s reports.
OuijaZilla was handcrafted by Rick “Ormortis” Schreck, a lifelong collector of spirit boards and Vice President of the Talking Board Historical Society.
Schreck started collecting Ouija boards in 1992 and filled his house with them hoping to make it haunted.
So far, the OuijaZilla site notes, it hasn’t worked.
