Transcript of CNE roller coaster’s sketchy-looking supports are eccentric

CNE roller coaster’s sketchy-looking supports are eccentric but effective, regulators say
Crazy Mouse, a massive,
130,000-kilogram
roller coaster had to be transported to the fairground in six separate trailers.
The use of the cellophane plastic
isn’t standard practice
, but the stacks of 6 x 6 wooden blocks are, the regulators says.
The organization that operates Crazy Mouse,
used

to
hold its wooden blocks in place by hammering nails through them at a 45 degree angle. It is a method known as Toenailing.
The foundation of the CNE's "Crazy Mouse" roller coaster is comprised of 6X6 wood stacks wrapped in cellophane.
The unstable looking wood and cellophane pillars under "Crazy Mouse" at the CNE are indeed
SAFE
!
The company has recently discovered the cellophane method works
better
than having the lumber nailed together.
The wood and cellophane weight combination provides a
sturdy

base
for the roller coaster, which sits at a sloping or angled patch of road.
