Flash Video Here:
The 34-second ride, half of which is composed of climbing the lift hill, runs over 188-feet of track. The coaster has been clocked between 20 – 25 m.p.h. (with radar guns). The rest of the ride is an action-packed 17 seconds; riders have a curving left drop into a tight clockwise spiral loop and the ride finishes with a tight right-hand helix. But, it might not stop there; John never put a brake on the coaster. So, after the helix, you hit the straight section of track that runs you right back to the lift hill! When John starts you, you can continue to go around until either he shuts off the lift motor or there is a power failure.
I am going to be near Vincennes, Indiana this summer, and I am thinking about riding it [if you set up an appoint ment ahead of time, the guy will let you ride it!]. It seems safe, but I am little scared.
Would you guys ride it?
Oh yeah. That is most likely the coolest thing I have seen in a backyard in a long, long time. I wonder how much something like that costs…

I truly, truly love Roller Coaster Tycoon. I love building coasters. I can’t handle riding most of them though, so…
In a heartbeat. Oh God, yes! Now I’m going to be drooling for this thrill for a long, long time.
Crap. I thought the title said “Coaster Euthanasiaists.”
