Kentucky teen builds roller coaster in backyard


A teenage in Kentucky is getting attention after building a roller coaster in his backyard.

Logan Moore’s grandparents found the roller coaster after returning from a trip. 

The 16-year-old says he was bored one day, so he started building the ride at his Barbourville home.

“I love the mechanics of them, I mean I’ve just always loved them and I always wanted to build one,” said Moore. “I’m going to keep this for a little while and then I may do another one, may redesign this one, but I will wait on that just a little bit because it’s been a lot of work.”

Moore says he’s interested in going to college for engineering. 

He hopes he’ll be able to design and build roller coasters as a career.
