WORLDS GREATEST DAD!
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.’
