No, it's not a GT. This guy about 40 miles south of where I grew up built his own roller coaster Here's the video of it. I would wonder about the strength of the rails and car under carriage.

I've been to the "Big Peach" on every  trip we made to the "Frog Follies".   Don't remember seeing a roller coaster.  But I'll be looking for it next time  we go that way.    Looks like fun!   Rick 

 

I bet the people at the big peach probably know all about it..(they have some d**n good pies also)

   I want one!!! I could put it next to the caboose when I get it :D  Plans for the long run I guess. Put a caboose in the back yard and make a man cave out of it, then a roller coaster next to it.
