Since it’s Christmas Eve, I wrote a post on Gadling about my dream Christmasgift. Short of a teleportation device, that I could use to save on expensive airline tickets, my ideal gift would be a backyard roller coaster. I wrote about them way back in May 2006. In case you missed that post, and I’m sure you did, check out the videos below of Jeremy Reid’s wooden coaster Oklahoma Land Run, John Ivers looping coaster Blue Flash, and my new post on Gadling: “All I want for Christmas is a backyard roller coaster”
Obviously, my ideal backyard roller coaster would be designed by B&M and it would span 5 acres. But, I love that these two took a do-it-yourself approach. If you find other cool home made coasters feel free to share them in the comments below.
I want to wish my readers a Merry Christmas! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then enjoy the day off and those post-Christmas Day holiday sales this weekend.
New Site Only Days Away
On a different note, I’m really excited about the new site that’s launching on New Years Day. Again, it will be the biggest change that I’ve ever made to the site. And I’m confident that all of the changes will only make it better. Please leave any feedback or suggestions you have about the site here.
What’s Your Take?
