Supermarket Coaster?

Wednesday, March 12, 2003 9:12 AM
I saw this on Ripley's a long time ago and I searched for it today and found it........a Supermarket Rollercoaster.......do you guys believe this? The link will not work on here for some odd reason.....but if you go to www.yahoo.com then type in "Supermarket Coaster" click on the Ripley's link and it will bring you to it.......

Honestly now...how exciting a coaster can it be if you're doing your freakin' grocery shopping while riding?

LMAO!

This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time! Do they have separate lines for 10 riders or less?

And if you happen to shop at a Meijer or Wal-Mart...

What do you think of this John Ivers guy who built his own coaster? What do you think of the coaster in general?

If you haven't rode Raging Bull in the back row you haven't lived. The feeling on that first drop cannot be explained in words!

Buller - I know people who have ridden John's coaster and they say its fun. He's already planning on [or in the process of] building another larger one. But I think his coaster looks cool!

I would love to be able to have Blue Flash on my track record. I need to find out how to get in touch with him.

WOW, this is really cool. I too would love to add this to my track record. Reminds me of the Termite, another backyard coaster that was in ACEnews a few years back.

One has to wonder just how many backyard coasters are out there?

Hey,I work in a supermarket.Work might actually be fun if Fred Meyer put one of these in.This might put an end to people crashing into displays with shopping carts or worse yet,the battery powered mart carts.I have been on mop and bucket end of those clean ups!
