Default Here's someone who took the heading seriously

Well, I guess this is what they reallly mean by "Home Improvement"

It only cost the guy about 5.5k to build. My kids will no longer be happy with just a swingset in the backyard if they see this, so shhhh....

Default More Do-it-youselfers

Here's yet another...a 14-year-old German kid was building quite a coaster in his backyard and city officials made him tear it down

And finally, here's a guy who built a steel corkscrew coaster on his farm

If any of you SFoT lovers want to build Big Bend in your backyard, I'll pitch in some time to help

I would hate to see what a tornado would do to these coasters! Continuos ride is the only way to go!

Default New Attractions

Let just return the park to what it once was, but with modern technologies. Think about a Cave or River Boat Ride with modern state of the art systems. I think that would really be something, but the park would have to actually invest the money and not go with the lowest bidder.

What if a new Cave was constructed in this manner:

Default My Bad!

I should have looked closer at this attraction, I did'nt relize it was a simulator ride. I woud'nt want something like that at SFOT! I'd like to see the Cave restored to its' previous glory, but with modern tech. Can you imagine how cool it would be to see some of the old "fantasy" style attractions brought back with the tech we have today!

Here's another mini-coaster, guaranteed to creep out the claustrophobic:
