Introduction: Backyard Roller Coaster

I built this PVC roller coaster in my backyard in early 2012.

Here is my website: BackyardCoasters, showing pictures and videos of this and other coasters I have built in recent years.

    Your website doesn't seem to have any details on its construction. Particularly, I'm curious on how you built the car. If you added instructions to this instructable, this would definitely get an award of some sort. Very cool!

    how did you make it

    Quite a fun little ride it looks like... I can imagine the trial and error period was interesting.. Have you found the putter limits for weight and turns yet?

    The weight limit is about 175 pounds.

    can you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees post some
    instructons on how you built it. that would be great!

    All you need is some wood, screws, pvc pipe, and time.

    MY pc cant load this but it can play skyrim ):

    Your PC can't play a youtube video?

    a 1 minute video would take 10 minutes for me ):
    thats why i play video games to pass time.

    I would love to see more of your backyard coasters (plans, pictures, and video) on our site. I think there's generally a lack of this kind of project happening and think it would be a big hit here.
