Introduction: Knex Roller Coaster Station
This is a boarding station for roller coasters that I actually built a long time ago, while I was building the Death Trap. The whole thing is made out of micro pieces*. All you need to build it is the Vertical Vengeance set, but I still made a parts count in the next step. The cars simply go slowly through the station, and there's a walkway to make it more realistic. It can be extended to make it longer, and another walkway could be added to the other side, but there aren't enough pieces in one Vertical Vengeance set to do so.
*If you don't like/have micro pieces to build this, I made a standard piece version right here.
Step 1: Parts List
Here's all the parts you'll need. The rods are named by their real colors, but the connectors are named after original classic-colored connectors. Please tell me if you don't know what a certain piece is.
Note: All of these are micro parts.
Black Y clip-11
Black snap cap-5
Orange end piece-1
Cars-at least 1
Total pieces: 385
If you have all these pieces, then let's get building!
Step 2: The Motor Section
This section will hold the motor. It consists of three parts: A,B, and C. After you build those you'll connect all parts together. Pay attention to the image notes.
Step 3: The Bottom
This section includes the back gears. You'll build parts A and B, and then you'll combine the two parts.
Step 4: The Boarding Platform
This platform will be beside the track. It also has two parts. You'll combine them to complete step 4.
Step 5: The Track
This track goes through the middle of the station. The cars will move from the back end to the front. Make sure it is facing the right way!
Step 6: Combining Steps 2-5
In this step you're combining all the stuff you've built so far.
Step 7: The Chain
Your station will be nothing without chain, so put it on! It does matter which way you attach it, so pay close attention to the pictures. Make sure all the chain links are facing in the same direction.
Step 8: The Top
You're almost done! Simply build the top and add it to the station.
Step 9: Finished!
Congrats, you are finished with your creation! Just put the cars on and you'll be able to add the station to a roller coaster.
As always, feel free to ask any questions!
Thanks for viewing, and have fun!
