At the Clinton Station Diner in Clinton, NJ, brave burger fans can take on the 8th Wonder Challenge. This one tips the scales at 105 pounds, 28 inches in diameter and 11.5 inches tall. Teams of ten people have only 60 minutes to conquer the 8th Wonder and those who succeed are awarded handsomely with a $5,000 cash prize! So far the money remains unclaimed because no team has ever won the challenge.
