EVERYONE'S going yo-yo crazy in Ipswich as the town prepares to make a Guinness world record attempt.

Crowds gathered in Arras Square for the last chance to get a “fast track'” ticket ahead of Sunday's world record breaking attempt on the Cornhill.

The ticket allows spinners to go to Gate A on Sunday and take part in the big two minute yo-yo session in front of the Guinness Book of Records.

The ultimate goal is to get the highest number of people simultaneously yo-yoing for two minutes. The Spin event is being organised by Ipswich Central in partnership with the New Wolsey Theatre.

A total of 15,000 free yo-yos are being given out in the run up to the big event.

Yo-yoers can still register on the Ipswich Central website and get the latest information on SPIN, news items, tricks and training videos.
