Theme park enthusiasts are probably missing out on their favorite pastime. Well, a man decided to take matters into his own hands and recreated a mini version of the Matterhorn from Disneyland in his backyard.
Sean LaRochelle lives in Napa, Calif., And has taken charge of his roller coaster needs. LaRochelle built a two-story replica of the Disneyland Ride that includes everything from spooky yetis and tunnels to hollows and falls.
The builder told his local news channel that he was inspired by close family who created a Pirates of the Caribbean-themed tour of their home, and explained that he always wanted to build his own sub -glass. With shelter-in-place orders giving him ample time, he and 30 socially distant friends accepted it. The result? An immersive ride that is perhaps the most impressive backyard project ever.
The project started at the end of March and didn’t finish until early November, so it was quite an achievement. In total, LaRochelle spent $ 15,000 and worked full time with his family to complete the one-seater coaster, but given that Disneyland not due to reopen anytime soon, it might be worth it.
