Some British Dude rode the Big Dipper at BlackPool For 1000 hours non Stop which is over a month. What if he needed the toilet!!! Theres a Plack in the station Above the Tunnel.

Anyway it's cool that he rode it so many times in one day! Was it a 24 hour thing?

No. In the article, it says he accomplished it in 5 hours.

Only video I saw was for the Sky Rocket. Looks pretty cool - wish it was there last year when I was at Kennywood!

 

It works for me. It's one or two videos to the left of the Sky Rocket one, depending on which one you are watching.

 

That is a pretty impressive time, considering over 2 hours of that were spent physically on the ride, plus waiting in the line.

 

He didn't wait in line. He got on at about 11:10 AM. He got off around 4:45 PM. He was a little wobbly when he finally got out.

I would consider endurance on a coaster an accomplishment when it is done on:

 

Vekoma Boomerang, Giant Inverted Boomerang, Invertigo

-Vekoma + Backwards x many times = (x.x)

 

Spinning Coasters

-Especially the WTF kind like Comet Express

 

Extremely Short Kiddie Coaster

-You'd be bored to death.

 

Rough Woodies

-Get an ambulance ready

 

Zamperla Volares

-Why would you do that

 

Stand-Ups

-Challenge even for females

 

Otherwise, I would love to do something like this

 

But I do acknowledge the guy's age... wow.. 78.

"What? A 78-year old man rode the Jack Rabbit Coaster 90 times in One Day?"

"He's my Coaster Hero!"

 

A quote from coastermoosh:

You know what they say: you don't stop riding because you get old; you get old when you stop riding

 

"Right on, man!"

 

"You know what you should be riding now? The comfy pillow on your head ride!"
