When you’re a kid, a lively imagination can turn a tree house into a magical castle or potted plants into royal subjects. When you’re an adult, having a little free time and hulking construction equipment at your disposal can turn an excavator into the great Sissonville Roller Coaster. Shain from “BUCKWILD” took some time to explain the mechanics behind his self-designed ride in the video below. If it’s any indication of what else is lurking in his backyard, we might have an entire makeshift amusement park on our hands.
“‘Round here, we don’t have amusement parks or everything,” Shain says in the clip, before jumping on into the claw and signaling the operator. Then: Mayhem. We can’t say we’ve spun around in any sort of John Deere equipment, but Shain definitely makes a convincing argument in its favor. “I want in this!” he finally shouts out before dropping into the dirty pond below. Might not be a real carnival, but hopefully there’s some funnel cake waiting for him back at the house?
Check out the coolest ride this side of the Mississippi, and be sure to tune in to the “BUCKWILD” premiere tomorrow night at 10/9c!
