CA Man Recreates Disneyland Matterhorn Roller Coaster in Backyard
Stop the search … this California man just won Father of the Year honors after building his own Disneyland roller coaster just to entertain his family during quarantine.
Sean LaRochelle of Napa spent around 4 months building a scaled-down version of the famed Matterhorn ride. It’s a 2-story, single-passenger roller coaster … and you can tell Sean did everything in his power to get every detail of the alpine-themed ride.
Check out the videos … his 400-feet of track includes Swiss flags, waterfalls and even the ticked off Yeti inside the mountain!!! The aerial shots of his mini Matterhorn are also pretty awesome — we’re thinking Sean needs to go Hollywood.
Sean’s kid can thank coronavirus for their backyard playground-on-steroids. Disneyland closed in mid-March due to the pandemic, and 2 weeks later Sean started building the ride. He finished in July.
Ya might’ve guessed it, but Sean’s working on a degree in architecture, and says he had some socially-distanced help from about 30 friends and family members. Doesn’t hurt to come from a family of architects.
BTW, his child is only 6 months old. Sorry kid, you’re just not tall enough for this ride yet.
