Dec. 4 (UPI) -- A Kentucky teenager realized a long-held dream after he hand-built a roller coaster in his own backyard.

Logan Moore, 16, said he has always been fascinated with roller coasters and wanted to build one himself. And after a year in carpentry class, he devised a plan to do so, WYMT-TV reported.

Moore worked on his project for two months over the summer.

"I mean in the summer it would be one, two, three o'clock in the morning and he would still be out here working," Moore's grandmother, Frieda Baker, said.

Moore told LEX 18-TV that finishing the project showed him that hard work can pay off.

"One thing I wanna say is, don't ever think you can't do something because I sure didn't think I could build this. But I did," he said.

And even though he had built a smaller roller coaster before, he has no plans to build another one any time soon.

"I'm going to keep this for a little while and then I may do another one, may redesign this one, but I will wait on that just a little bit because it's been a lot of work," Moore said.
