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!

    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?

    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.

    I can't watch the video (no fault of yours youtube is blocked at my work) but just the picture and title made me say "That's F-en Cool!" I can't wait to see it in action
