Ride the Reverse Cowgirl

Mike Nawrot and Romain Teil constructed their fully-functional, homemade wooden roller coaster in just two weeks, aptly named the Reverse Cowgirl. We've seen lots of thrill-seeking backyard contraptions, but this one imprisons the rider in a freaky vertical position:

"MIT's Rush 2010 featured EC's first fully vertical wooden roller coaster track. The Reverse Cowgirl dropped its riders vertically, then turned them face down as they skimmed 2 feet above the ground, face down and strapped with their backs to the cart, before bringing them back to vertical upside-down."

they may be geniuses, but someone needs to teach them how to make a video.

Looks like a good freaky ride.
