Model Roller Coaster

We had a great time in Virginia this weekend. We didn't get to TrainFest in Milwaukee but we made it to Bevell's Hardware in Blackstone, Va. where this great train display is set-up every Thanksgiving since 1977 and stays up until Jan. 9th, then gets taken down and stored away for the rest of the summer. It's all done in "O" Guage. You can see a roller coaster in the far left corner. Below is the link to the Video I took of it. It was pretty neat.

That roller coaster is quite the thing ---- it reaches scale speeds of how much ??? 500 M.P.H. ??? And yet , I know of people who would buy a ticket to ride it !How big was the entire layout ??

Jim, We tried to just step it off, but the place was very crowded so we are guessing about 20 feet by
80 feet.
