My sons 1st rollercoaster!

Tuesday, December 24, 2002 7:19 AM

Well just in the nick of time Fedex just droped off one of my sons presents. Step2 "UP & DOWN Roller Coaster" 10 feet long and a lift hill of 14.75 inches plus what ever the car adds. No known max speed yet but with ground breaking set for 12-25-02 and completion @ 10min later.

Not bad for a 1 1/2 year old to start his track record! Pictures will follow soon.

Then you have to add LIMs and see how fast you can get it going. lol. Hope he (and you) have fun!

Advice for any parent of a future enthusiast: If you can, get a picture of your kid's first ride. I have a picture of my first rollercoaster ride.....my dad and I in the front seat of Jr. Gemini when I was 3, right after it was built. It's one of my favorite pictures.

Teufelhund: Hope your son loves the present! :)

Bungee cords are cheaper and just as effective for these smaller projects Code823.

Will it hold an adult? Legendary my sons uncle and already asked if he can ride.

Not if used to excess, then they tend to over-heat Code823.

Telfelhund, it survived Moosh, that should tell you something.

Whoa, I'm an adult *and* an uncle? Scary. :)

And yes of course I'm going to ride it, and add it to my track record. Wait, no I'm not lol.

So, have you ridden it yet, Eric?

Yes I did ride! At a top speed of ...whatever my brothers pushes were. Its a short ride but if you get enough speed you'll keep rolling even after your out of track. The worst part is I have to wait in line behind my kids to ride it

I'm thinking of greasing the wheels on the car?

Damn, you have to wait in line behind your kids? That queue must be longer than Millennium Force's! Zing! :)

Hmmm maybe I'll come by and ride when I'm up there next. Do I have to pay?

Well I'm thinking of being a traditional type place. You buy tickets for the rides here but admission is free.
