In every family there is always that one cool Uncle and this U.K. Uncle is probably the coolest of all time!

In what started out as a drawing from his 11-year-old nephew, Leigh Downing decided to construct the 230-foot big dipper coaster in the backyard of their Llandyrnog, Wales home! According to the Youtube clip posted by SWNS, Leigh and his son Charlie, used plastic pipes for the rails and bits of scrap metal and wood to make the fame for the coster. For the seat of the coaster, they used an old wooden chopping board. Talk about being creative!

Leigh, an engineer, decided to create the coaster as a surprise for nephew, Calden. Since the COVID-19 shutdown, Calden was disappointed that he has not been able to see his friends over the summer vacation from school. As an Uncle myself, I have a lot of work to do now that I have learn that Leigh has done something this cool to earn himself the title of, 'Funcule'!
