Amusement park enthusiasts are likely to miss their favorite pastime. A man decided to take matters into his own hands and created a mini version of Disneyland̵
Sean LaRochelle lives in Napa, California, and took his roller coaster needs into his own hands. LaRochelle built a two-story replica of the Disneyland ride with everything from scary yetis to tunnels and dips and drops.
The builder told his local news channel that he was inspired by a family in the neighborhood who had a pirates of the Caribbean thematic walk-through in their home, explaining that he had always wanted to build his own roller coaster. Because the orders gave him ample time, he and 30 socially detached friends went for it. The result? An immersive ride that may be the most impressive backyard project ever.
The project started at the end of March and was not completed until the beginning of November, so it was quite an achievement. In total, LaRochelle spent $ 15,000 and worked full-time with his family to complete the single-seater roller coaster, but since Disneyland isn’t reopening anytime soon, it might be worth it.
