Uncle Builds Rollercoaster in Backyard for Nephew During Quarantine

A creative uncle made his nephew’s dream come true by building a rollercoaster in his backyard based on the 11-year-old’s drawings. Leigh Downing, 47, and his son Charlie, 20, used the sketches made by his nephew Calden Ashley to construct the 230-foot-long big dipper, according to SWNS. They used plastic pipes for the rails and bits of scrap metal and wood to make the frame of the coaster. The inventive duo even employed an old wooden chopping board as the seat of the ride which circles their yard in Llandyrnog, Wales.
