My kit from coasterdynamix showed up Friday. I worked on it for about 4 hours Sat. and was able to get it built pretty easy. The directions were easy to follow and I love watching the train fly around the track. It looks so cool. I think I'm going to start a custom layout tonight now that I have a feel for how the model works. I may put pics. on CD website when I have something to show. Great job Coasterdynamix.

Phil, thanks for the post. Most people will get their kits this week who have paid. I have heard from a few so far and everyone seems excited. We will probably release an expansion kit in a week or two at a special introductory price to get people building their favorite coaster.

And not to steal Jack's thunder but S&D Greetings is working with CoasterDynamix for a very special promotion, details of which should be announced soon ;)

Got mine today. The train alone is impressive. Nice piece of work. I'm glad I'll only have to put those track ties on the spine once!

I think the only real replacement part that's critical, and this was true with the K'Nex kits as well, is track rail (and the little joining pieces). I assume that stuff is fairly inexpensive, and seeing as how you need to cut it for different lengths, that'd be the first part I would buy!

OK...I'm jealous. I wish I wasn't moving, starting a new job, and getting married so I could play with coaster toys! :)

Yeah, the track ties are fun. That's when you tell the wife and kids you saved the "special" part for them to assemble.

We are talking about selling additional base pieces, supports, joints, and track in the expansion kit. That way you can not only make the track longer, but the layout can be expanded.

That would be really fun. I can picture a HUGE coasterdynamix kit resembling the old "Space Warp" coaster sets!

The Raptor model that they had at CoasterCon was extremely nice looking. I'm impressed ans would buy one if I had the room.... Oh well... I bought a new computer for RCT2, I guess I could buy a new home for a coaster model! :)

Well I feel your pain Peabody The "little Misses" decided to change the original configuration of 2 cars in a weeks time. so the $500 fo my set went with the $5000 from the income tax return and the $1500 for vacation to fix them..... can you say not happy!!!

I'm just plain poor. I guess that goes with my career choice. ;) :-P

Ok Ok, enough. I'll send my order today. Meanwhile I'll ahve to take down my rather large Spacewarp to make room for it.

I still want an educator's discount or something :) Maybe I can convince my museum to buy a few -- how well would these hold up to, uh, "eager hands," anyway?

I think buying one of those kits would take up a full half of my apartment, but that's okay. I'll add it to the list of really expensive things to buy after an XBox and a new digital camera. Maybe it should be before the camera. Hmm.

As soon as I have a spare $500 I'm *so* buying one! I was unable to collect enough of the rail/tie samples at No Coaster Con to make a ;)

I called my wife from Dulles airport in D.C. yesterday and she said it had arrived. I was so excited to fly home and mess around with it last night but of course there were some storms and radar outages so the tower wouldn't release us for take off and I had to stay the night in D.C.

I just got home and am so looking forward to my two year olds bedtime to pull this baby out. I'll let you all know what I think. Thanks so much for the quick delivery.

We will be posting the details of the expansion kit on our site this week. It is basically 1/3 of a Dragon kit in terms of track length and supports. We will be selling it to current customers for a reduced price. Let us know how things are going all of you who have kits!

Too expensive. Damn cool, but not at that price. If it was fifty percent cheaper I'd buy one in the morning.

I take it that you don't want the one you reserved in March?
