He Didn’t Know Anyone That Could Do It For Him, So He Builds It Himself For His Yard [video]

There is a twister or a tornado spinning in the backyard of a Hicksville, New Jersey house. No, we are not talking about an extreme weather event, we are talking about an extreme fun time.

We just found this great video clip on YouTube, that a family has posted of the coolest homemade roller coaster we have seen yet. It has a twelve foot drop and lasts for almost thirty seconds of wooden roller coaster fun. You are going to be so jealous when you watch this video.

Roller coasters are an integral part of any theme park or boardwalk. And a swimming pool or a half pipe are pretty standard fare for most suburban backyards with families. But what happens when someone decides to bring the big time amusement ride home with them?

The unknown poster of this video says that his roller coaster, made from wood, steel, and PVC pipe, took around three months and fifteen hundred dollars to construct.

The mad genius says of his contraption “This coaster is fully electronic and is loads of fun!!”

Since the video was uploaded in early February, more than thirteen thousand fans have watched the spectacular point of view clip. Many have taken to social media to discuss the crazy but fun idea, saying things like:

“This is awesome!!!! Any tips to give to someone who wants to build one?”- Emma DeLuca

“black salami how do you bend the pipe?”- Jayne Jolley

“What use you for the rails?”- The M.E.

“how long does it take to build it?”- Anon.

“I would love to have A roller coaster like this in my backyard.How much would it cost me if I hired you to build me one?”- Yvonne Garner

“That’s soo cool!! what do you use to lift you up the hill? & what state do you live in?”- NickShot250

“Did you use a computer aided design program?”- Paul Gregg

With so many questions about the process and design of the roller coaster, the builder came online to try and answer some of the better questions, saying:

“if you plan on building one…make sure you have the funds and the time. It’s not something you can whip up in a week. Just remember that you’re going to be trusting a person’s life on it…you can bend the pvc with a heat gun or fill it with sand and heat it. either way works just fine”- Jaden Brooks

Other people just wanted to say how much they liked the idea.

“Hey! That’s the coaster next to watching park! I grew up there and I’ve wanted to ride it when I saw u making it.”- Anon.

“I made a very small one in my back garden last summer but this was ultimately the kind of coaster I wanted to build. Best vid I’ve seen of the PVC tube type coaster especially as I can see you had space issues as well.”- Army Boy608

“Crazy man ! Congrats from France.”- Florian Saunier

“That was just way too cool.”- Anon.
