Ok, this isn't exactly a coaster, but OMG it looks so cool! :lol:
IF you want hilarious stuff that people make during their own time go to

Anyone remember the original backyard coaster by Kim Peterson? (sp) The Termite?

^I actually still have that book...

I have a coaster for my backyard, or rather I would if I got off my lazy arse and started construction. In the mean time, Ive used one of those fisher price coasters from my neighbors, and rode it for a credit :wink:

This is the coaster that is in my backyard!


Not really, I just made it with AutoCAD and put in into a pic I took of my backyard. I got the idea from a 1st gen freefall. My ride has two 15-ft vertical track sections, with an airtime hill in-between.

Two riders board the ride at the top, and then they are released down the short drop. They are lying on their backs at the bottom. The hill provides great negative acceleration g airtime!. Then the car continues up the second tower until gravity brings it back down. The riders will experience upside-down freefall on the descent from the second tower! The ride continues back and forth along the same track until coming to a stop on one side of the airtime hill.

The riders are only held in by a ratcheting lap bar! This ride will make a great addition to the "Bench: The Ride" collection, since the seats are flat, wooden benches!

I made a backyard coaster this summer in Finland with a frieand who lives there :D We called it Ukkos Vaunu, wich is finnish for Thunder Wagon. It worked perfectly, except that it was hard to get in the wagon. It was also incredibly solid!! it barely moves when you try to shake it 8)

The first modern wooden coaster in Finland :P
