NEW homemade coaster

Otto Volante : Gelatin

looks like it's an installation at an art gallery in italy
I believe it's a continuous circuit, too, as the track seems to curve back up towards the top after it bottoms out. The second picture down appears to be a shot of the 'lift hill'

Talk abouta head chopper! I wonder what the height limit on that thing is?

I couldn't watch the video since I don't have quicktime here at work but those homemade coaster scare me more than the real thing.

Looks pretty wicked! Notice the hand brakes!

My highspeed showed the video perfect.

Talk about a neck snapper!

Looks tempting though...

Looks fun. It's no Elijah's Chariot, though... ;-)

That thing is really cool, I think I'll have to build me one.

Otto Volante: dedicated to their grandmother's most loved cow.

Now there's a coaster theme if I ever saw one. ;)

I was wondering does anyone have any idea what it would cost to build a homemade coaster?

A lot of money and even more in reputation...

That was was cool I would like to ride it or even have one in my backyard

very cool. I would ride it. That looks like one of the best barkyard coasters I've seen. What does IJST stand for?

well I built a backyard coaster for $200 but it is pretty simple but i have heard people spending a couple thosand.

$200? How big was it? I really want to build my own in my backyard, I have enough space. :( If only I could.

Elf if you could put a pic up that would be great. I'd love to see what i could get for an amazing $200

It's only a couple feet.

See here

Thanks corkscrewy. I guess if that's all i get for my $200 its gonna be awhile before I get anything to cool in my backyard.

I'll stick with my k-nex. :)

Though those can get quite expensive.
