Best Backyard Ever?
Yahoo reports the video of a three-year-old boy riding a backyard roller coaster built by, you guessed it, his dad!
As Yahoo says, the video shows the boy flying around the makeshift roller coaster as his father, Jon Cain, keeps the ride going. The Lancaster, Ohio couple told Yahoo News they built the roller coaster on a whim, with mom’s permission.
Yahoo News says, “The 12-foot-high roller coaster--made of PVC tubing and concrete--took three weeks to build and cost $700. "We thought it would cost about $300," she said. "But you can't have a half-built roller coaster."
She added that they cleared the coaster-construction plan with the city's board first. "They said, 'Go ahead, build it,'" Cain said.
But is it safe? "I was concerned at first," Cain said. "But we test-rode it several times. And only my children are allowed on it."
