My home all year round "resort"

Sunday, June 15, 2003 5:35 PM
This past fall I started my own "ski hill". Boasting 7 trails along with tubing it was fun. My backyard sure is useful! I made some money too. For next year I'm making a snowmaker and a rope tow (which is already built I just need a motor).

For the summer I decided to make an amusement park. I did this last year and it didn't come out to good but I'm going to try harder. I'm going to have a swing ride, river rapids, and various water toys. But it will be like a real amusement park. Landscaped and beautiful. Food and games are also going to be there.

The premier ride, is going to be a cable swing coaster ride which is just a tree to tree cable ride w// a swing attached to it. It'l be called the Flying Falcon

Maybe I'll make a kiddie drop tower too out of a car and a ladder and a motor. My idea is to have a rope attached to the car lift it to the top, unhook, and drop. It'll be stopped by bungee cords that are also hook from the car to the top. Even if the bungees would ever break the rope the pulled it up would stop it from crashing..

its a work in progress lol

I did used to have a rollercoaster that consisted of 30 feet of track going down a hill and stopping w/ bungee cords. It was wicked fun but i played a round with the car trying to make it fancy and it didn't work to well after that..

I'll keep you posted w/ updated.

Comments, suggestions, and questions please

I'll update this post with pics once I get them.

Nice work with a creative imagination. Good luck on the next projects.

Please visit the small parks. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes
