K'NEX Rollercoaster - Fushigi
--> View Model



I have recently created a K'NEX Rollercoaster that uses a Fushigi Gravity Ball instead of the standard K'NEX cars. I have made a youtube video of it also. Please comment with any questions.

This is really cool! I like the smooth movement of the ball when it is going around the track.

There might be a signature here if you look hard enough.

That's really cool! I like how the ball is able to move so much with so little tilt in the track!
Quick, think of a signature! Insert it here:_________.
Thanks, that's my signature.

Thank You Sorunome, I built it so simple because I am proving a concept. The concept is that you can use a 14.4 ounce Fushigi ball to create a functional rollercoaster.

Thank you Random_Builder, I spent most of the building time on energy efficiency. I plan to create a larger model eventually that may even have a loop. That is a challenge down the road though.

Thank you www139, I was originally going to bank the turns, but decided against it because of the efficiency of this turn style.

You are efficient with your pieces. Did you run out of yellow rods? You could replace the white rods and orange cons on the side with yellow rods if you have enough.

I have a lot of yellow rods, but they are tied up in my K'NEX Ball Machine - Fushigi.
