I know this is a little dated, but do you have a part count or which sets did you use for this? I'm starting to get into building coasters again with my daughter, and we want to try some "outside the box" types.

Bringing up the next generation with knex! You have my utmost respect! I reckon go custom with as much as you've got! The best way to better your skills is to create your own models. Of course, inspiration can help and showing progress also allows other to help you. If you're planning to build mainly coasters id highly recommend You basically post progress reports and the community helps you to fix and troubleshoot your model. BUt just go for it. I reckon Your daughter could come up with some cool ideas for it anyway!

Tornado96 (author)Element Force2012-04-17

Element Force (author)Tornado962012-04-18

Tornado96 (author)Element Force2012-04-19

very nice btw howd u make that zero G? Im building a totally micro at the moment but my zero G looks sloppy. I want it talller in the mid like the one fromMedusa/Bizzaroat six flags any tips?

Froggith (author)2011-06-27

Okay this is amazing. Like all the other coasters you made. But the thing that REALLY pisses me off are the green tracks. I can't use them with my other tracks. Which i have a butt load. And now they are completely useless.

How did you make the tube supports? And it looks like the track guide was improved. How?

Tornado96 (author)Froggith2011-06-28

Well I didn't just use my track spine. I use a whole bunch of track spines. :-P

Tube supports are difficult. There's no way you'd be able to make them at your level. Make some more coasters firsT! :-D

Tornado96 (author)albydesign2011-06-18
