Pennsylvania man, 78, rides roller coaster 90 times in a single day
 
WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. -- A 78-year-old man rode a Pittsburgh-area roller coaster 90 times in one day -- bringing his lifetime total to 4,000 rides.

The Associated Press
This June 16, 2010 file photo shows riders entering the terminal after completing a ride on the "Jack Rabbit" roller coaster at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin, Pa. Before Disneyland and Six Flags, before steel coasters went 50 mph and rides were named for cartoons and superheroes, there were trolley parks.
Vic Kleman (KLEE'-man) spent about five hours on the Jack Rabbit roller coaster at Kennywood Park in West Mifflin.

The wooden coaster is no spring chicken, either. It's celebrating its 90th anniversary -- the number that prompted Kleman's marathon riding session on Sunday.
