• World’s Coolest Dad Builds a Roller Coaster in His Back Garden

    "Coaster Dad" is king

    Meet Will Pemble. He may just be the coolest dad ever.

    For a cost of approximately $3,500 and around 300 man-hours, Will made his son’s dream come true, by building a 180-ft roller coaster in the backyard. He even set up a “Coaster Dad” Video Blog online, where he cataloged the difficult undertaking. Check it out to watch the project unfold from start to finish.

    How did the whole thing come about? “We were just back from one of many amusement park trips and Lyle asked a simple question,” says Pemble. “Why don’t we build our own roller coaster, dad?” And thus, an idea was born.


    I’m pretty sure “DIY Dad” just won the internet.
