Coolest Parents Ever Build Backyard Roller Coaster for Son [VIDEO]
"Ferb, I know what we're going to do today."
If that line makes no sense to you, then you more than likely don't have kids. Which means you've not watched one of the best cartoon's on TV in recent years, Phineas & Ferb on Disney Channel. It definitely makes my list of "must watch television" (if I had one). Even if you don't have kids, I highly recommended giving it a watch sometime. It is a gajillion times better than most of the other shows have to offer. I know gajillion is not a number, that's just how good the show is.
In case you don't know, the plot of the show revolves around Phineas (the triangular headed one), his British step brother, Ferb, and their desire to make the most of their "hundred-and-four days of summer vacation" by coming up with elaborate and imaginative plans every day while their sister Candice does everything in her power to get them in trouble with their parents. They also have pet platypus named Perry who doubles as a secret agent, but they don't know that. Well, except for that time they traveled to an alternate universe where Perry had to reveal himself in order to save them, but then they had their memories erased so they wouldn't rememb....you know, you should just probably watch the show.
In what appears to be a page right out of a script from the show, Jon and Natasha Cain of Lancaster, Ohio took it upon themselves to give their son something no other kid in the neighborhood had, his own private roller coaster.
Made from wood, concrete, and PVC pipe, the ride stands at 12 feet tall at its highest point, and requires a push from dad (with the help of some kind of broom handle or pipe) to get the car to the top of the hill. From there, gravity takes over and the ride is on.
As impressive as that is, Phineas and Ferb's was a bit more impressive. In all fairness though, their coaster was drawn with pencils and they're cartoons so the laws of gravity and physics don't apply to them.
