Meet three-year-old West – a boy who might just have the best dad in the world, given that he can now ride his own personal dad-built rollercoaster at home in Brighton, Colorado.
Adorable footage shows West gearing up to take his first ride, and giggling with his arms up as he zooms around.
“That was so fun,” West concludes.
West’s father, Scott A Brazelton, told Storyful he came across a video of a retired aerospace engineer who built his grandkids a rollercoaster and reached out to him for help. Brazelton said he built a first rollercoaster for his eldest son Wyatt, and wanted to “be fair to my second son, West, and build him a rollercoaster too.”
When Brazelton asked West what he wanted the rollercoaster car to look like, he replied, “A Southwest plane!” Brazelton said.
He added: “I’m a pilot at Southwest Airlines and we travel a lot, so that’s where he got that idea from.”
Footage of the first rollercoaster Brazelton built went viral on YouTube, reaching over 51 million views. Credit: Scott A. Brazelton via Storyful
