Quartz reports because it's been done enough times, coordinators have learned to line up the balloons in a 3.8-mile long row so they won't bump into each other.

Next up is a stunt we've never seen before.

Gregg Godfrey set a new world record when he soared over a semi truck in Montana.

Godfrey wrote on Instagram he only meant to jump 140 feet but ended up soaring for 160 feet.

Previously, he set a Guinness World Record for the longest ramp jump back in 2008, coming in at 50 feet 6 inches.

But Godfrey wasn't the only one setting a new record at the Evel Knievel Days stunt festival.

The Montana Standard reported Godfrey's nephew jumped 202 feet over a utility terrain vehicle, while Levi Troutman, aka The KaMaKaZie Kid, ran through 10 walls that were on fire.

And the funniest stunt is best saved for last.

Check out the world's largest balloon animal. This giant wiener dog, created in Utah, measures 65 feet by 32 feet and has 8,867 pink balloons.

As for what's next for Jeremy Telford, the man who created the massive balloon animal?

He told the Daily Herald he and several other artists will build the Seven Wonders of the World out of balloons.
