Rollercoaster fanatic takes 95 rides in a row for coaster's anniversary

Age is only a number for Vic Kleman, but another number he's counting is how many rides he's taken on roller coasters. Vic is 82 years old, and he's still taking that number to new heights.  

Vic set a new record for himself this weekend. He's now taken more than 5,000 roller coaster rides -- with nearly a hundred of those on what he says is his favorite coaster. 

Known as the Jack Rabbit, the coaster is at Kennywood in Pennsylvania. It's been around since the early 1920s, and is celebrating its 95th anniversary this year. 

To celebrate, Kleman rode the coaster 95 straight times this weekend.

This isn't the first time Kleman rode the coaster multiple times in a row. He rode it 80 times for his 80th birthday, and 90 times in a row a few years ago for the coaster's 90th anniversary.
