ANDERSON, Ind. -- Every relationship has its ups and downs. Perhaps no couple knows that more than a couple from Anderson University who just got engaged on a roller coaster. 

Austin Crecilius proposed to his girlfriend of two years, fellow senior Allison Boyle, on a Holiday World roller coaster last weekend. 

Friends in front of them knew of Austin’s plan, but not Allie, catchinghte proposal on video.

“I had no clue,” said Boyle, “I cried the rest of the evening. In my words, ‘it was a very Austin proposal.’”

The proposal has now been seen around the world, shared thousands of times.

“I didn’t think that there'd be a lot of attention about my video, I'd just posted it for friends and family that weren't going to be there to see it,” Crecilius said. 

The couple did not rule out the possibility of their actual ceremony taking place on a roller coaster.
