    man that would suck, it looked pretty nice, i have to say pac i am too wondering where he gets this stufff i mean come on?!??!!?!?

  10. Wolfy Says:

    The government wouldn’t do that. It’s his private property. If they made him tear down this then
    that guy who built the blue streak a year ago would have to tear down his along with alot of
    other people who are now building home coasters also. If it’s private property it’s yours and
    the government has no say. If it’s public that’s another story.

    My rollercoaster costed me 2 grand. I sold my camera and cannot take pics. One tip: there is no such thing as using too much wood or caution, espesially that first ride when the cart becomes airborn!

  16. Jenny Says:

    were do you get this stuff this is great and yall talk about making your own but where the heck do
    you get it??

  17. Byron Shults Says:

    You just custom build all the hard parts and build the rest and have the hardware store sell you all their wood.
