Coaster Tech

Anyone know what is happening to Coaster Tech, which is a proposed rollercoaster toy that you can create you own unique tracks with. The website used to be at It no longer seems to exist. Did they change the URL? Or is this toy now defunct?

Now open Zero-G Thrills, an all new Coaster and Amusement Park Photos site

Yea, I know what did happen to that? I guess maybe they realized the toy wont have any suceess, or maybe some other problem. I was looking foward to that. Maybe the toy was kinda a high price and people would easily buy a knex toy coaster since it is cheaperly made and regular people wouldnt care about a more advanced model coaster.

Roller Coasters or sports? I guess there are questions nobody can answer!

Aw, man. Coaster Tech looked cool. I hope the website's just down. That was a really neat looking contraption.

What exactly was it? I heard a lot about it but the website was gone before I could check it out.

Here's all I found, but it still doesn't work: CoasterTech is a model system that uses flat plastic plates with holes that the round supports fit into, similar to the Spacewarp toys. A flexible, flat strip similar to matchbox track is used for the design, and can be positioned any way you like. The train has a unique rectangular design, and uses rollers for road wheels and even has little upstops. I too plan on getting one when they are available. Last I heard they were trying to get financial support so it could become a reality. My guess is that the designs were removed for copyright purposes, since the crave for realistic coaster toys keeps rising. These guys have been at it awhile, and I hope they don't give up!

If they've closed up shop on their website then I'd assume that they have given up trying to design and market it.They've been working on coastertech for well over a year now and had intended to have it in stores by the 2002 holiday shopping season.
