It's called the Blue Flash, and it hasn't been on before.

I live about 2 hours away from there and I made the trip one day out there to ride it with a friend. The guy is nice as can be and let us on and for being small and homemade it is an awesome ride!

There is another home-brew coaster in Oklahoma. A blurb and small pic about it can be found here.

That would be awesome to ride, you are lucky you only live 2 hours away and got to ride it! Was the ride nice and smooth?

Actually, I've already seen it awhile ago on Ripley's Believer It Or Not. It was a pretty short segment on it.

The coaster it is talking about there is Jeremy Reid's roller coaster, I was going to give you a link to his site but it doesnt appear to be working anymore.

Tyluvsthebeast:

These backyard coasters are usually not added to databases or Track Records, because they are not open to the public.

Are they allowed to build rollercoasters on their properties? I would think there is a zoning law prohibiting it somewhere...

I know this woman going to court for building a skateboard half-pipe ramp in her backyard....and that's only a skateboard ramp!!

I'm sure that Jeremy Reid, and the person in Indiana got the proper permits and such before building a coaster.

I also believe that Jeremy Reid worked for Arrow Dynamics.

But you can ride Blue Flash. All you have to do is contact him in advance to set a time. He is more than willing to let people ride. The ride was surprisingly smooth for being homemade.

FoF,

You are right, he actually did some work on the spinning portions of Arrow 4th dimensions that haven't been built yet (his own words).
