Some families are opting to skip the lines and the costs at amusement parks this summer in favor of building roller coasters right in their own backyards.
Watch the video from NBC Nightly News.
Dang. More credits that are impossible to get...
My author website: mgrantroberts.com
But with much lighter nighttime security for those late night credit grabs.
I'm bag-checking and wanding everyone at my side gate.
Since Ravenphile is busy today, he asked me to fill in:
There's probably a joke here about it being cheaper to build your own coaster than to visit the parks, but....meh.
They made that assertion in the video piece.
I'd rather spend my $500 on 2 years of platinum pass and meal plans than on a single crappy backyard coaster. But that's just me.
Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.
I'm betting my backyard gets a new coaster long before Michigan's Adventure does....
I'd make a joke about a Dragon Wagon, but I think we all know I'd prefer a Go Gator...
(Thank God it's finally football season).
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
And I'm betting Dorney Park is getting your backyard coaster not long after you're done with it.
I love this!!!! If nothing else, its good to see families spending time together. The kid's drawing of the roller coaster reminds me of. . . . .me :)

The money isn't really the point. If everything was about money, people wouldn't build/restore cars. They'd just buy another car.
