Some kids never get to make it to Disney Land, but then again, some kids have grandparents who aren’t afraid to just build them their own amusement park right in the backyard.
According to WFAA, Decatur, Texas resident Jimmy White built the mini-amusement park for his 2-year-old granddaughter. Made of metal, wood, and PVC pipe, White started work on his fun fair as soon as he discovered that he was going to be a grandparent.
Without any formal training as an engineer, White learned about gravity-propelled coasters, and decided that he could build one himself. Once finished, the DIY mini-coaster now starts on the second-floor of his house, and the child-sized car can thunder along the tracks without much help from an adult. He also built a playground carousel for his little park, as well as a miniature Ferris wheel that needs to be turned by hand.
White told WFAA that he wanted to give his granddaughter the attractions that he didn’t have access to as a child. Unsurprisingly, his granddaughter seems to love it.
