    Disney Photo Trivia Facebook/Instagram

    It's been a few years since I posted, but I just created a fun page on Facebook and Instagram (click the embedded links to see the pages) that I want to share with fellow Disney fans! It is called Disney Photo Trivia! Here is my "sales pitch": Welcome to the place where trivia dreams come...

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    This one is not, but it is very cool! I have talked a little bit with the guy who made it, and I am jealous of his ride atmosphere! We were on inside edition and a local news station however, I will attach links to both of those clips...

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    It is really cool to see it progress and I really enjoy seeing people enjoy it too! Thanks for all of the support throughout the project! There is so much more we want to do, it is just so hard now that I am at college and it is snowy, but this summer we will make progress!!

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    It has been a while since I have updated this thread on my backyard roller coaster, but it is coming along well even though winter in Wisconsin and the fact that I am at college has halted the construction again! Nonetheless, we have some pretty cool news about it! Last week the TV show Inside...

    Is this an actual paper fastpass?

    That is an interesting thought about when test track first opened, but back then the fastpasses were more square, and this on is rectangular. There was a year that they changed from square to rectangle fastpasses and that was long after test track had opened, so this fastpass is within the last...

    Is this an actual paper fastpass?

    See I wasn't sure if it was real or fake and it looks pretty cheesy which kinda screams fake, but I didnt know so I got it. It wasnt really extra cost, so I decided to go for it. It was pretty well done though for probably being made by just a random person.

    Is this an actual paper fastpass?

    Really? That is weird, I can try again. It should be in this post as well. Can anyone else see it?

    Is this an actual paper fastpass?

    I went shopping at theme park connection while on my trip to Disney last week. I bought some small paper items and in it was a fastpass. This isnt a typical fastpass however. Its on normal printing paper, and the paper is purple. I will attach a picture of the front and back and see if anyone...

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    Thanks! We are really ambitious and we want to go extreme, we don't want a boring roller coaster. We have actually thought about making a loop.... but we probably won't do that, that would be crazy! And we are looking for names too, we don't know what we want to name it. I thought 24 wheels...

    Currently under refurb, but when it is back up again, they will be available, jump on them fast though, they will probably be sold out quickly.

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    We hope to have it make it back by around December because snow is going to put a damper on construction. If not, hopefully by the end of the next summer (should be done by then). Here is our newest video, we are going very extreme. It only took us a weekend to do this, and it was a pretty large...

    We made a very quick modification after riding it. We adjusted the regular turn and made it into a sort of banked camel hump. It made it more fun and allows less stress on the track! Here is the video of a human POV with the new turn-

    Working Backyard rollercoaster!! (no longer frustration)

    Thanks! It felt so great to go down the track and have it work! Its funny because as soon as it worked, we rode it about 5 times each, then took part of it apart to fix it, and add fun to it. To me it is really cool how extreme ours is compared to other backyard rollercoasters!

    We have learned a ton from the project, and it is actually kinda fun to watch it fail and figure out how to fix it! It is frustrating, but fun. "Keep moving forward"
