Backyard Roller Coaster

Paul Gregg from Seattle, a retired engineer who worked for Boeing in research and development, used the skills he acquired with new structural concepts for aerospace to roller coasters. “I saw a couple of people who tried [making backyard roller coasters] online and I thought I could do it a lot better, so things got out of control. I did all the physics and…a whole bunch of engineering stuff. I documented it with PowerPoint charts, so I have about 150 pages of information. I don’t know why. I’m just used to documenting, so whenever I did a test or some analysis or a new design I documented it in that way” said Gregg. Currently, he’s built three: the original coaster, a larger coaster, and a small coaster called the Little Rocket for kids.
