A Man Spent 40 Years of His Life Building This In A Forest. And It’s SERIOUSLY So Awesome.

After he taught himself to weld, everything changed.

In 1969, a man named Bruno in Battaglia, Italy, started selling food and wine beneath a tree. The next day, he sold some more. That small, first experiment is what started his family restaurant, Ai Pioppi. The restaurant ended up being just one of his lifelong passions.
The next month, he met a blacksmith that taught him how to weld. Bruno didn’t realize that this chance encounter would change so much.

It all started with that tiny lunch stand.

Bruno built all kinds of rides for his customers.

There are swings, multi-story slides, seesaws, gyroscopes, tilt-a-whirls and kinetic roller coasters.

He spent 40 years building these rides.

And no one taught him how to do it.

It started off as an attraction so that people would eat at his restaurant.

But now they come for so much more!
