Toy Coaster Video

These passengers have no problem keeping their hands and arms inside the train at all times (since well, they have none! ;))

I wonder how long it took them to build this and then video it!! Enjoy! :)

Wow, that must have taken alot of Knex sets to build it all. Especially since they made so long a train. They'd have to buy a bunch of Screamin'Serpant sets and use all the middle cars and only one front and one back car.

That was pretty cool though, I liked that helix at the end. It did seem like it went faster than it looked like it should've, but that might have been just the long trains or some video effects.

Thanks for the tip, but it's been posted before (a few times).

A friendly tip from a CBuzz vet: lurk a little while before posting so much or if you must post, use punctuation and grammar.

I love the concept of making model coasters but the thing I really don't like about them is that there seems to be none with a realistic pace to them. They all just shoot round and look so unrealistic in that way.

Speaking of "toys" (Boy it must be off season) have any of you had experience with Rokenbok?

Even though it's very expensive, even compared to K'nex, some it looks very impressive.

It looks like quite a bit of my grant money this year will go towards the purchase of these interesting sets. (I intend to use the monorail to connect between the worlds that we build)

Any thoughts?

Because models are to scale and gravity doesn't scale. For example a model may be 1/20th scale or 1/12th scale or whatever, but gravity is always on a 1:1 ratio with no exceptions.

You'll never be able to make a model that travels at a 'realistic' pace.
