Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fourth as long as Steel Dragon 2000.
In other words, 807 paces is 0.2481 times the length of Steel Dragon 2000, and the length of Steel Dragon 2000 is 4.031 times that amount.
(a.k.a. スチールドラゴン2000) (Nagashima Span Land; Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, Japan)
The roller coaster Steel Dragon 2000 is 3,253 paces in length. It is one of only two operating "Gigacoasters" (meaning its height is between 120 paces and 159.6 paces) in the world, having a height of 127.3 paces.
It's about four-and-a-half times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.21 times 807 paces.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 170 paces. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
It's about one-fifth as long as The National Mall.
In other words, the length of The National Mall is 5 times 807 paces.
(Washington, D.C.) (to Lincoln Memorial)
From the steps of the Capitol Building to the Lincoln Memorial, the National Mall is 4,000 paces. On December 4th, 2008, the entirety of the Mall was declared open to the public for the first time in American history in anticipation of the estimated two million visitors to the Mall for the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 20th, 2009.
It's about five-and-a-half times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 807 paces is 5.525 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.181 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 146.1 paces to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about five-and-a-half times as long as a Football field.
In other words, 807 paces is 5.60417 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.178439 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 144 paces from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 12 paces farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about six times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, 807 paces is 5.86 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.171 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 138 paces (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 138 paces, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
It's about one-fifth as long as The Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In other words, 807 paces is 0.16 times the length of The Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the length of The Hollywood Walk of Fame is 6.3 times that amount.
(Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, Hollywood, California) (approximate length)
The Hollywood Walk of Fame is approximately 5,100 paces. Gene Autry, most famous as the singer of "Back in the Saddle Again" and as the writer and singer of "Here Comes Santa Claus," is the only entertainer to have a star in every category — film, television, recording, radio, and theater. One of Autry's stars is also one of only two stars which have been stolen from the Walk and never recovered.
