New Jersey isn’t often associated with paradise or relaxation, but that may change now that it’s home to the world's biggest hammock.

Video game company King Digital Entertainment is behind the 65-foot-by-31-foot hammock, and they installed it as a promotional gimmick. It worked, as it has garnered attention by claiming the Guinness World Record title of World's Largest Hammock. It’s located in Jersey City, New Jersey, just across the river from Manhattan, and it is reportedly big enough to hold 170 people lying head to head, or 24 New York City taxis lined up fender to fender.

The world record had previously been held by a hammock in Point Harbor, North Carolina—a measly 42 feet long.
