John Mastrangelo builds a homemade ice luge each winter. He started small seven years ago, but he expands the project each year. Now, with the help of his family and Mother Nature, his ice luge is over two stories tall.
"It took a good 14 to 21 days of solid work," John told News 4.
The luge is a continual work in progress. This year its 22 feet high, the run is 200 feet long and this year its bigger than ever.
It's fun for everyone, the kids, the neighbors, and even Dad.
"It's become quite an obsession," John confessed.
"So cool, fun we get to go on it everyday," said Dante Mastrangelo, about having the luge in his yard.
As for next winter, John plans to make two longer slides. If Mother Nature cooperates you can be sure it'll be taller too.
