I'm curious as to why this particular coaster/video has gotten so much media play. There's dozens of these around the country. As I previously mentioned, this one is very well done. But it's been featured on Yahoo, CNN, and five separate (non-coaster enthusiast) friends have either sent me the link or made me aware of it.

It's got a cute kid in it. Strap some kittens in that car, and it'd probably be at least twice as popular.

You built that, Josh? Wow. That's very cool.

Well, all credit goes to the designer and engineer - John. I'm sure he'll be happy to see I found pictures, though!

I'm ticked I never got to get a ride on your creation. That would have been one hell of an exclusive credit.

Wonder if it will be fitted with "big-boy seats" for the typical opulent enthusiant.
