Ray Mueller, Gravitar World Record Holder, 1982 - 2006
Dan Coogan, of Phoenix, AZ set a new Gravitar world record, scoring 8,029,450 points on 12/23/2006, playing for 23 hours and 15 minutes. The previous world record was 4,722,200, which reigned for 24 years, set by Ray Mueller of Boulder, CO on 12/4/1982, playing for 12 hours and 21 minutes.
I originally posted this page about Ray Mueller because I wondered who held the world record for Gravitar. Once I found out, I tried for 3+ years to top his amazing score, and I finally did -- but that does not take anything away from what he accomplished in Dec. 1982. He played for more than 12 hours at a Chuck E. Cheese.
When I played my game, I had total control over light, sound, temperature -- Ray had to play the game of his life in a public venue without any of those controls, and that's what is so incredible!
I plan on leaving this page up as a tribute to Ray Mueller's amazing game and talent at the game of Gravitar.
I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ray in person at his home outside of Boulder, CO and playing a few games of Gravitar with on October 15, 2006.
Have you ever wondered who holds the world record in Gravitar --
Well, apparently it's Ray Mueller, of Boulder Colorado.
I emailed Ray about the web site and he responded (on May 29, 2003) with this email.
