If anybody is interested there is a marble rollercoaster set called Rollerscape. My brother pick it up at the Discovery Channel store in the mall down here in West Palm. It is sorta like that marble coaster that was around years ago. It comes with 194 pieces so if you want to make a complete circuit you might have to buy more than one set. The company who makes it is Loncraine Broxton. I checked the Discovery Channel store site and its nowhere on that site, and theres no site on the box anywhere, so if you want one it looks like you might have to go to the store itself.

Is it made out of 2 metal rails or the colorfull peices of plastic you put together? And, does anyone know if Mayfair Mall in Milwaukee, WI has a Discovery Channel Store?

What about Black Wolf Roller? I had that kit in the early 90's and it had black tubular platic rails and alumninum colums and an auger style lift. Anyone remember this bad boy?

Its made of plastic. They give you a bunch of ping pong sized balls with a holes around it that are used to connect each support. The only bad thing is that they didnt include any instructions with it. They pretty much just say heres a picture of one on our box, go by that.

Yes, Mayfair Mall in Milwaukee has a Discovery Channel store. It is a real awesome store and only two stores down from my favorite store, Barnes and Nobles.

I saw the kit too! I really wanted to buy it but im waiting for the holidays (hoping mmy girlfriend will get it for me). It is only $20, not bad. I remember the Black Wolf set was around $100 and i couldnt put it together (i was 7).This set looks cool but not exactly anything special. Plactis tube for track flimsy plactis for supports, but then again the price is right.

ucdaap42, do I remember that bad boy? There is one sitting right behind me as I type this message. You can still find the Black Wolf coaster, it was made by Bandai, and the whole line was called Spacewarp. E-bay is about the only place to find them, and they usually go for a hefty price. Every once in a awhile a set will have a "buy it now" price that is really low, but not often.
In the past 18 months I have bought 3 set 40's a set 10 and a black wolf. (total price of over $600) I am still in the building process of linking them all together. It currently takes up all of a 6 foot by 2.5 foot picnic table and features a double height lift.
"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Rollerscape is available through many avenues besides the Discovery Channel Store. And I found several options within seconds. Amazing how those search engines work.
