John Ivers, an unassuming grandfather living in Bruceville, Indiana, started the project with 10 feet of straight track in his shed, which he plopped a retrofitted car seat on top of. Simply through trial and error — without formal engineering training — he kept on building, until the ride outgrew the small shed. Then he brought it outside and kept building, adding a full loop, an engine-powered conveyor chain, support towers, and flag mounts.

When it was finished, he of course christened the roller coaster with a name: the Blue Flash. –Atlas Obscura
