Navy Pilot Father Builds Backyard Roller Coaster For 3-Year Old Son

March 3, 2017


This is a video of 3-year old Wyatt's first ride on the plane themed backyard roller coaster his Navy pilot father Scott Brazelton built for him. It's pretty impressive. So like, are backyard roller coasters the new birthday ponies or what?

The dad noted that he consulted with Paul Gregg of Backyard Roller Coasters to bring the project to life and plans to post videos about the construction process.

In the YouTube video description, Brazelton also thanked his wife, Brittany, for supporting his "crazy" venture and of course, his inspiration ― Wyatt.

"Your smiles are worth all of the injuries and 4-letter expletives that go along with projects like this," he wrote.

Awww, he said his son's smiles are worth all the injuries and curse words that came along with the project -- that's sweet. When reached for comment about what my smiles are worth, my dad sent me straight to voicemail twice in a row, then answered and immediately hung up on my third call to get his message across crystal clear.

Hit the jump for the video. Also, bonus points to Wyatt for making an explosion sound when he fist-bumps his dad.

    I love these kinds of vids. Happy kids and fun dads. Humans are awesome. :-)

  • I got paid 104 thousand bucks in 2016 by freelancing from home and I manage to earn that much by wor­king in my own time f­­o­­r 3 or sometimes more hrs each day. I’m using an earning opportunity I stumbled upon from company that i found online and I am so excited that i was able to make so much extra income. It's very newbie friendly a­n­d I am just so happy that i found it. Here’s what I do...

    Selling your saggy, torn butthole for crack money is not really considered as legitimate employment..

    I would have never come inside ..ever...had I had this in my backyard

    Imagine how this kid's gonna feel when he's too big for the roller coaster.

    Like we all do at that point when we realize that it's not all rainbows and fairy tales but back breaking labor and heartache with the only bright spot when you have a child (or dog - not cats, they know too much) and enjoy those sweet precious years with a small one vicariously enjoying the innocent beauty again until we see the light die in their eyes ...and then grandchildren...and then we die. (this is me, on Monday before I finish my 2nd cup of coffee at work ..I tend to be a lot more upbeat and less nihilistic by noon).
