Valheim players have created a wide variety of amazing landmarks within the Viking-themed survival game. Whether it's fortresses, dwarven capital cities, or towers that are homes to beings of pure evil, they've been built. However, one team of players have decided to go a more entertaining route and use their architectural skills to create a working rollercoaster.

In a 90-second video posted on DEPPENTREFF's YouTube channel, a team of five builders (GalusPeres, Mika-aka MichtheViech, Bedason, Dutschison, and Cryptson) describe their project as "demanded by many... and heard." The rollercoaster starts out on the top of a mountain where a longboat, held in place by some building frames, sits on a track made out of roof frames. The figurative ride attendant removes the longboat's supports, and it begins sliding down the track, careens around a curve, and ends its journey as it splashes down into a river.

The team has worked on a couple of other Valheim projects, such as a tour of their base or a coliseum. What's interesting is that the coliseum build video ended with a hint about the rollercoaster project, as it ended with a shot of a smaller version of the rollercoaster that was a short slide into the water. As their second demonstration of the rollercoaster ends, this time with the camera showing the rider's view, the camera zooms past their previous works and looks to the horizon, where Yggdrasil towers over the mountains. "We still have a lot to do," the video concludes. It's uncertain if Yggdrasil will play a part in their next project, but we're excited to see it.

Valheim is available on Steam.
