Picture of LEGO Rope Slide
Hey everyone! In this instructable, I'm going to show you how to make a Lego rope slide, where you can slide down mini-figs with different sliders. It's an idea my friend and I came up with some few years ago. There's nothing special to craft, except the Lego-stuff. You've might tried I before, but I'm also going to show you how to build some different "sliders" :)

This activity totally rocks! It has all necessary elements:- easy cleanup, extremely low potential for damage to anything, can be quiet, encourages active bodies and minds, can be done inside or outside, uses common easily available inexpensive items, success can be achieved by any age, experience, ability and complexity of design; can be non-competitive; many people can be engaged at the same time without interfering with each other; endless possibilities and fun can be achieved in only a few minutes as well as many hours.

The kids spent an entire day sending little guys down the line. They tried all kinds of different ropes, and found that embroidery floss works best. It is thin enough to sit deep into the ridges of a wheel (some wheels have very deep gooves), doesn't stretch, and is smooth enough for a fast ride. If you want to slow things down, use yarn. With embroidery floss you don't need much of a slope so the guy can ride a very long way: though rooms, down stairs, in and out windows. I had as much fun than they did. Thank you for sharing! Baca9

I just found this site and am soooo excited about it. I am a great-grandma and am always looking for things that will excite kids to do more than watch a screen. I can hardly wait to try this out with the little kids next door. People, please never forget how to play! This is a perfect project for old folks who still like to play. Thanks!

Cool! I love Lego and I've been looking to do a new project so I took this one on. It worked out great. Thank you :)

You should attach a DC motor with an arm to one end of the string; so to continually change the incline of the string. Kind of similar to those "monkey on a unicycle" toys that move back and forth from wall to wall.

Simple design took about 1/2 a minute to make. Not the sturdiest design, but it works.

This reminds me of when I was smaller I used to make rope swings and stuff. Bottom line it's awesome
