Blue Flash roller coaster, built by John Ivers, is arguably the worlds’ most famous homemade backyard coaster and the only one with a full loop. For the past 18 years, John and his wife Sharon have been operating it along with it’s little cousin “Blue Too” (a kiddie coaster) in his backyard in rural Indiana. John, a retired welder, was able to purchase scrap steel from his employer and managed to complete “Blue Flash” for under $1500 back in 1999-2000. A couple years later he made “Blue Too” mainly for something for his grandkids could ride. People from all around the world have come to experience the homemade roller coaster first hand and John and Sharon have loved every minute of it. “Blue Flash” even inspired a story in the best selling novel “All the Bright Places” by Jennifer Niven after she and a friend went and rode the coaster herself. Now John and Sharon have made a decision about the coasters future and the future of “Blue Flash” and “Blue Too”. (Watch until the end) What did you think?
