I mean sure, it would be a fun little novelty, but in reality how much would you actually use this thing? Not trying to be a negative nancy, but thinking practically I don't see it retaining its ride appeal for long. Just something to think about before spending a lot of money.

On the other hand, thinking of some sort of crazy backyard pendulum ride gets my heart racing a bit

edit; e.g. Personal Screamin' Swing :lover:

I agree. If I were to get a ride in my backyard, I'd probably choose something along the lines of a zipper, tilt a whirl etc. Something that's got great re rideability, and doesn't take up too much space.

Not going to lie.. That launch looks pretty impressive!! But the part where you go from rolling backwards, to going back forwards again looks like it would be a little uncomfortable.

Regardless still awesome!!

I was surprised at how "substantial" the track looked. That being said, I'm not likely to be riding any "backyard coasters." ;)

Here is the Halloween version of his coaster (with a slightly modified layout):

By the way, his coaster can hold up multiple vehicles in automatic mode, has a cool control panel, can manage block system, has friction wheels and pneumatic brakes, a vertical lift/elevator, is completely demountable and transportable... It's frankly impressive!

The control panel! Just like a B&M (well, close enough):
