Awesome! I have noticed before that tires float, but have never used that trick. How does the water not fall through the cracks?

Yeah, tires float, but it's not enough to support the weight of the rest of the boat.
About the other thing: Think about it for a moment. We have two layers of plastic, which overlap. One is on top of the other. Which one? The one that comes from a higher height. The water will always search the easiest way down and not go "up" into the gap. That's why the track doesn't leak.

woah this thing progress really fast  :o

btw it looks fun  :D

Two builders, 5 days off got us to 70% of the ride. The rest is working on details (the ride), changing the parcour, thinking and making of a theme, and some general building or improvement. So, all in all not sooo much. The ride is compact, maybe that helps :)

I've just sat through your complete video and now it's comment time. That means I'm going to watch it again ;)


1. The sheer size of that thing, wow.
2. Great explenatory shot with the colour/black & white to indicate networks. > Immediate tip: If you make photo's that you know will be used in your video: Use the 16:9 ratio and not 4:3 or 3:2. This will avoid the black fields around the picture when it's in the video.
3. 0:52 the first cool music track starts. Makes me happy!
4. 1:56 holy shit that rotating lift. Well thought out and one of it's kind I'd say. Cool music continues btw.
5. 2:27 I see that another person figured out you can attach 2 rod ends with a y-clip. You'll see it back in a future model of me.
6. 2:37 Small detail: Love how the ball spins
7.  Q: 3:31 where does that ball come from? Nice that you've implemented a path ON THAT SAME ROTATING LIFT o.O
8. 3:42: K'nex Big Ball Factory booklet! woo
9: Q: 4:10 Did you buy extra panels for that path or did you have them laying around?
10: 4:34 Use my universal joint! It's more compact, haha. Second good piece of music, btw. Reminds me of Daft Punk.
11. 6:29 The moment I saw it: "Whaat! he used a clover leaf looping thing!?" Amazing, seems to fail pick up balls sometimes, tho.
12. 7:46 Q1: How do you get the chain so tight? Q2: What is that K-Force trigger doing there?
13. 8:07 Music flaw: similar piece starts again and stops after a few seconds. Third music piece I like less.
14. 9:51 Cool switching mechanism between lifts! works very well I believe!
15. 10:38 a moving loop! who thought of that!
16. 11:05 Nice in-between shot of the machine working.
17. 11:19 :O other balls and the Big Air! Q: How does he do that? Is it a separate network? (question will be answered) #Music!
18. 16:03 Seems a simple thing to do, but may be harder than it seems
19. 16:14 Random Roaring Basilisk head!
20. 22:00 Cool extra use of this ferris wheel!
21: 22:43 and question #17 answered! 


Great machine! You may very well be proud of it :)

Ooooooooooh, i think i know what you are making! Do the barrel things float? How are you making the "waterpath"?

EDIT: or do they "roll" / "slide" on some track, instead of floating on water?

Real water, Sorunome. Real water.
Pumps too. And just some styrofoam to let them float. We Epoxy-resin'd a 1 by .75m wooden box.
That sounds pretty awesome! I'm looking forward to see where this is going :) I don't think i have seen this around yt anywhere yet

That's why we (my brother is initiator) are making it ;) it's unique
And that's why teasers have to do. We don't want peoplez stealing our plans xD

If you are going to make us guess, add more pics!

Not yet. If it's a failure (and that's ALWAYS an option, just like Adam Savage says) it would be a shame.
Alright. It's a vertical lift that you see.

What's its supposed to do? It looks cool and complicated, though.

You're allowed to guess ;) It's a shot that looks from above.

Two days ago, my brother and I have started building a genuine K'NEX water ride!
Here's a picture of the vertical lift:


Tomorrow we're going to test it in a water reservoir, fingers crossed!
