Dad creates makeshift rollercoaster for his daughter

Dad creates makeshift rollercoaster for his daughter

When the roller coaster reached the summit, the 2-year-old gripped the sides of the bin as though she was 150 feet high and holding on for dear life.

When father Victor Peoro faced facts that he couldn't afford a trip to Disney World for his daughter Autumn he came up with a highly creative alternative.

His setup was supremely simple: Get a POV YouTube video of a roller coaster ride playing on the TV, put his daughter in a small plastic bin, then hold that bin in front of the TV and move it around in sync with the video.

Peoro then posted his video on YouTube on Tuesday, demonstrating his so-called "Poor people roller coaster", and it racked up almost 195,000 views in three days.

To help Autumn experience the real thing, a GoFundMe account has been created to fund a trip to Disney World.

Even when people couldn't give money to the cause, they gave Peoro an abundance of praise instead.

"I had just as much fun watching this!"

Peoro expressed gratitude for the outpouring of love from dozens of people. "The overwhelming response has been a roller-coaster of emotions.(Obligatory dad joke)", he said on his gofundme page.

We wanted to thank everyone for your kind words and donations.
