Sorry, I'm not going to upload my Nolimits file, because I have a lot of bugs to work out first, like the lift system and g-forces.

How does Blue Flash make it through that loop screw? The transition at the bottom looks so deadly! I wonder what the g-forces are like.

It's fine really. It's not nearly as rough as I expected it to be. But it sure does throw you around a lil...

Found this website, where a summer school with kids 7-17 built a small
ride-on coaster as a project. Thought it might be of interest.

Also pictures of the backyard flume mentioned earlier are available @

Yeah, throw the 7 year old on there first to test it out. He's young, and limber. His bones will heal faster :twisted:

I could probably manage to get away with a terrain coaster in my back yard. The woods that seperate my street and Pleasentview Rd. are on a hill.

I don't have any pics, and it's really not a real ride, but back in the day, I built a drum riser like Tommy Lee's from Motley Crue..you know the one he had on the Girls Girls Girls tour, that would rotate upside down and all around while he did a drum solo? I strapped my step sister in it and would flip her around and around and finally it collapsed...lol.

That was the lick
