Home Made Roller Coaster

Here's the Scary Award

This roller coaster was built in someone's garage and assembled on the playa - to see it operate was frightening. The car not only slide down the U, but spun forward while sliding down, and backward while sliding up.

We saw it run last night and they had to lift the passengers out because they were so ill. It's a repeat attraction for Burning Man, although the Go Go Dancer cages in front were a new addition. When we watched, only one was in use, by a 50 year old man in a kilt, who the announcer declared as "Way too un-funky". We concurred.
