If Tina was looking for rides that actually resemble roller coasters instead of a wagon attached to a 10' plank of wood, she'd be wise to get in contact with Jeremy Reid or John Ivers.

The two most famous home-built backyard coasters. Not actually me, but:

How many of you remember that one guy over in some other country that built that sweet looking coaster. I kind of looked like an Intamin. He had to tear it down because of some federal law or something like that. I know its torn down now and was over seas but DAMN!!! was it awesome. :)

Yes I still have my Ride of Wood in my backyard. I'm redoing the car over the offseason when I'm not at the ski slopes. I have to find the link to my pictures, it's somewhere on webshots.. *** Edited 12/1/2005 4:03:59 AM UTC by Ride of Steel***

Corkscrewy: I remember that one. It was in Germany. Tubular steel track and looked sweet. It was made by a high school kid studying engineering. Shot down due to a housing code violation that prohibits amusement rides in your yard or something.
Boy, I hope she doesn't get a lot of Knex pics photoshopped to look like real coasters. :) *** Edited 12/2/2005 9:27:34 PM UTC by FLYINGSCOOTER***
