Best Backyard Coaster?

Today a French guy posted a message on our Facebook page with a link to his Facebook page. I've seen a lot of people try building these in the past, but I think this "Crazy Mouse" could be the best attempt at building a backyard coaster yet. It uses an elevator lift and even has a fog machine.

It looks like he started off building models of rides and took it a step further.

Here are a few of the photos he's posted, but he also has some videos as well.

Anyone will have to go some to beat the guy who built all the creds at Ai Pioppi. Love the smoke machine though.

Blue Flash is a good classic. No backyard coaster thread is complete without a mention of Blue Flash.

If it counts, then I guess Ai Pioppi's creds count, as they're the most 'public' of all backyard coasters.

They're not really 'the best' per say, but I seriously admire Will Pemble's creations. He has made 4(?) backyard coasters so far, and makes a series of YouTube construction updates with his son as well. It's a great father-son channel, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants some info on how a backyard coaster is built:

That's the first video for his current project.

How about the Oklahoma Land Run by Jeremy Reid? That looked quite good too.

Plus one for Oklahoma land those woodies genuinely look good!

Always though this one looked pretty nifty, shame there isn't a mechanical lift hill really...
