Here are the latest clues:

1: The idea of me was first thought of post-World War 2

2: A prototype which was related to me was built in late 40s but I was kept as a secret by the military

3: I can go at different speeds

4: I was eventually invented in the mid-60s

5: I was made of wood when I was first invented

6: Sometimes some would say I was a bit rude in what I do, but I’m not! (I like to point a lot)

7: I would say I am now in most homes

8: You’d think I’d like a certain type of fruit




One man took it in his own hands to answer his son’s dreams by building a 180ft rollercoaster in his back garden.

This DIY project cost Will Pemble $3,500 (£2,075) and approximately 300 hours of tough work.

This project, other than impressing his son, has led to him setting up a popular blog,CoasterDad.com, detailing his efforts to bring the rollercoaster into reality.

Mr Pemble described the exact moment he began his impressive back garden amusement: ‘We were just back from one of many amusement park trips and Lyle asked a simple question, “Why don’t we build our own rollercoaster, dad?”

‘I couldn’t think of a single good reason to say no so Lyle and I headed off to the lumber yard for a few supplies.’
