Good Morning Everyone,
I saw via an e-mail from Six Flags that they are now selling desktop models of some of their roller coasters.
These look like they are made from metal parts and do not offer any movement...just the frames.
Do any of you have any these models and can you possibly share the pros and cons of the construction process.
They look interesting, but I wanted to see a few reviews before I make purchase.
Here's To Shorter Lines & Longer Trip Reports!
My son has three of these models: Banshee, Son of Beast (don't ask), and Mystic Timbers.
Summary: If you are looking for a neat little display piece of your favorite roller coasters and have an idea where to display them, then go for it. If you are looking for a challenge then save your money.
Yeah, completely agree with that assessment. Don't buy it for the build, buy it if you want a decent model to display. I enjoy model building, but that wasn't why I bought this; I got it to display and have it sitting on my desk. My younger self would be all about getting several of these to put in a nice display case, but my older self prefers putting time and money into other projects.
The Six Flags models are extremely accurate. They come with long lines, one train, and employees that are slow as hell.
