Grandfather Builds Roller Coaster For Grandson In His Back Garden
As a result of the ongoing lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, which continues to affect large swathes of the world, people are getting ulltra-creative when it comes to entertaining their kids - especially this guy, who made his grandson his own roller coaster.
The amazing grandfather decided that he'd put his new-found spare time with his grandson to good use by getting creative - in an impressive feat of engineering, he built the wooden structure in an unconfirmed location in the US, starting work on the project on 3 May
As shared on social media by the man's daughter - the mother of the little boy - the quick clip shows the little lad being rolled across the track.
Confirming that it's still a work in progress, she said: "It's not done but they having the time of their lives."
The mini roller coaster frame is fixed to the garden fence, with the actual coaster itself is made from a toy car with wooden wheels attached so that it could ride on the track.
The track is also attached to a wheelie-bin at one end, with wooden blocks and cement blocks holding it up through the peaks and troughs.
It might not quite be The Big One, but it's pretty bloody impressive.
And it's not just this fella who has unearthed a bit of a hidden talent within themselves while searching for ways to keep the kids occupied.

Two parents in Northamptonshire have turned their back garden into a swashbuckling adventure playground for their kids, having created a massive pirate ship climbing frame for under £25.
Stacey Addis and her partner Darryl Spicer wanted to treat their children - Tainen, four, and Nylah Rose, 22 months - to a new play area in the garden.
The ship - made from a few bits of scrap wood, painted grey, with a slide attached and accessories such as a net and a telescope (for looking out for other pirates, obvs) - has kept the kids busy in recent sunny weather.
Mum Stacey said: "The kids love it and never want to come off it! We are all so chuffed with the results of our finished pirate ship."
