Via /.: The Niles Monorail. I see a Burning Man 2003 project... The /. thread has all the predictable Simpsons Monorail episode references.

Haven't gotten that far... Actually, I was thinking more in terms of a way to build a simple low "haunted house" type ride. Of course doing anything functional with this, and having it beefy enough that it doesn't get destroyed by the first drunk who decides to see how fast it goes while making it cheap enough to be a fun project would be tough.

I'm wondering at the toughness, I know the plywood tracks for some of the pedal powered carousels last year got pretty chewed up last year, and I don't know if they had bigger wheels than show up in this guy's pictures.
