  • A father can’t afford to take her daughter to Disneyworld, so he made a roller coaster for her using a household item
  • The father called the ride “poor people roller coaster”
  • He set up a GoFundMe campaign to make her daughter’s dream of visiting Disneyworld come true

A loving father wanted to take his two-year-old daughter to Disney world, but his budget could not allow it, so he made the next best thing: he made a roller coaster using a household item and called it “poor people roller coaster.”

Victor Peoro of Hellerton, Pennsylvania, finds it too expensive to bring daughter Autumn to Disneyworld so he plopped her inside a plastic bin and then held her up in front of a Smart TV playing a video of a roller coaster ride while producing his own sound effects. Autumn squealed and giggled like she was riding a real roller coaster.

The video of Autumn’s “poor people roller coaster” ride was posted by her father on YouTube. It racked up 362,735 views  in just 4 days. (Click HERE to view the cute video.)

Peoro started a GoFundMe campaign with a goal to raise $3,000. The goal was met on its first day.

“Our daughter would like to go to Disneyworld. Now if you’ve been to Disneyworld you know it costs $5.00 for a 16 oz bottle of water, let alone the ticket price. If you enjoyed our video, please think about making the dream come true!” Peoro wrote.

Peoro thanked everyone who donated to his campaign:

“We wanted to thank everyone for your kind words and donations. The overwhelming response has been a roller-coaster of emotions … (Obligatory dad joke) Our goal has been reached, and I am putting the donations in a special account for a future trip. I am also disabling any future donations. I appreciate the offers and extensions of help but want to make clear that while a trip to Disney is somewhat a luxury, we are by no means destitute. There are many great causes and people out there who could use your help. We tentatively are planning the trip for sometime next year, and will share some photos when we make the visit. In the meantime please accept our profound thanks!
