An 82-year old man rode the Jack Rabbit roller coaster 95 times on Sunday to celebrate the rides 95th anniversary.

Vic Kleman, 82, of Pittsburgh, is such a fan of the Jack Rabbit at Kennywood that he has kept track of how many times he has ridden it since his first ride back in 1959, totaling more than 5,000 times.

“The thrill of riding the Jack Rabbit never gets old for me,” Kleman said. “It just makes me feel good.”

Kleman began riding the coaster at around 10:30 this morning and it took several hours to ride the coaster 95 times, reaching his goal around 7:15 P.M.
