That thing looks totally stupid...even K-nex does a better job of making coaster sets.

My advice is to just save your money & not invest in that worthless product.

How, exactly, can you give advice based on an opinion formed just from looking at pictures? It's a kid's toy, get over it.

Personally, I thought it looked pretty cool for a marble-based coaster set...I like the support structure. Here is the link directly to the manufacturer
Also, this site has better pricing on the Skyrail Suspension than that yahoo shop. *** Edited 11/19/2003 9:50:21 PM UTC by redman822***

Very cool concept, especially the suspension setup.

What would be even cooler that the toy suspension setup would be to see a real coaster set up like that...if that would be phyically possible.

I liked it so much added it to my Christmas wish list.

Looks like fun. Easier to set up than K-nex.

I saw this at a toy store the other day. It looked really nice ... but the version I saw didn't have any sort of lift mechanism.

I don't know how many of you remember Bandai's Spacewarp set, but this appears to be just a bigger version with a different support structure.

Has anyone seen a version with a lift?

I also just noticed that there only appears to be straight track and 90 degree turns. I don't think it's possible to do any major banking or helix style turns with this. *** Edited 11/20/2003 2:56:36 PM UTC by JamesB***

My brothers and I loved Spacewarp when we were growing up. This does look somewhat similar, although I suspect Spacewarp was more flexible.

I think I need to go dig up my spacewarp set again... :)

Yeah, same here. I think it's somewhere in my garage attic. It's still set up, too.

I have always wanted a Spacewarp kit. Add that to my Christmas list. ;)

If you have a Spacewarp kit, you will find that it is worth a good amount of money now!
