On Fox news network the pick of the day was a hom made coaster. It had a chain lift a car one loop was made of stteel and one person, the creator, can ride it. It is sort of in a steel bobsled track. Dose anyone have more info on it.

It's The Blue Flash, in Vincennes, Indiana...there was just a segment on it on Ripley's Believe It or Not, as a matter of fact. It's only about an hour from me, I really need to get over and try it out soon.:)

Yeah, I just saw that on Ripley's and it was really cool, although it looks a little rough going through the loop. I don't think I would ride it. That is a very interesting thing that he did and you have to be addicted to roller coasters to actually build one in your backyard. Very neat!! :)

Does he charge people money to ride or let them in for free:)

The ride is free, but I think you need to schedule a time with him so you don't come when he's not there.

That is so cool! He can ride a coaster without leaving his home! I wish I lived close so I could drive and ride this. It looks like a fun coaster.

Scott and Carol Holmes rode it and have a review of it at It's only in Vincennes so I might try to go there sometime. It would be a nice weird little coaster to add on my track record.

You can hear the laughter, you can hear the mighty roar. From the brickyard down in Indy to the white Chicago shore. It's a rollin', twistin', turnin' and might we both suggest. You get you fanny ridin' on the Cornball Express!

I saw this on the news last night and I live 2000 miles away. It goes 20 MPH and looked really fun from the video.

The creator is making another coaster which he will sell for 20,000. Anyone intrested?
