LEGO Rope Slide

Featured
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" :)

Step 1: Materials

All you need for this instructable is a rope, lego, lego minifigures and your imagination :)

Step 2: The track

Grab the rope, and tie it to a high place, like on the top of your stairs. Now tie the other end to something lower, that will make the rope lean. You can try to tie the rope at different places so the rope just leans enough to let the minifig slide down. I think a long but a little slower slide is much funnier than a short and fast slide.

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.
