Yikes! One scarey coaster!

I'll ride most anything, but not this. It's gotta be the most rickety thing I've ever seen. And it's human powered to boot! Markey would love this thing.

I'll take one in my back yard, please? Ah heck, I'll take it in the front yard instead.

I think I'd have more confidence in your front yard one than the Nepal version.

Not to be mean...but I think there is a forum on this coaster like once a month....

The ride does look like a fun time tho...

Had I known I wouldn't have posted. Odd how they slip through the cracks seeing as I read this page at least every other day.... I thought about searching for it, but figured it'd be a needle in a haystack.

That's ok, there's not a forum on this coaster once a month. Maybe a topic, or a post, but not a forum. Coasterbuzz is a forum. ;)

It looks like something someone actually made themselves. I wonder how "human power" is used to get it up there.

Oh, and Marimbaguy87, you're a smart@$$.;)(wonders if this makes me a smart@$$?)

I'd take that over just about any travelling fair coaster here in the USA, and just about any coaster in a SF park world wide.

Coasterbuzz is a website.

Actually, the structure looks pretty adequate given the light weight of the one car train. The undercarriage of the train does look a bit flimsy though.

Lol....sorry guys.... I forgot the word "topic". Now I feel dumb...

Ok...so maybe once a month was a slight exaggeration... *** Edited 7/27/2005 3:55:51 PM UTC by pyrocoasterkid***

Think they throw a cable/rope over the high end of one of the towers and pull it up there? It looks like there's a cable following the track in this pic: http://www.rcdb.com/ig2907.htm?picture=3
