Introduction: Tidal Wave V2

Picture of Tidal Wave V2
Here is my entry for TGKTR2. It is an amusement park ride where the riders are on a track and the track swings back and forth.

?) cool

FrozenStar (author)2008-12-21

Thats really cool Btw you should look into making the swings more even (it seems to dip to one side longer then the other)

jollex (author)FrozenStar2008-12-22

Yeah, I tried countless variations, making it longer and shorter and this was the only one that really worked.

Hehe, this is pure amusement. Here in Holland, there is a ride in the "efteling" that looks much like this. You are making a big chance in that contest. Btw, I your new avatar image looks nice!

OMG, I have an 8th of the parts needed to build. But, even if i did have enough to build this, i dont have the mind to build non-knex gun stuff like this

pls (author)2008-11-15

:O! awesome job, i like the gear mech, but it looks like the crank is going to break>.

I_am_Canadian (author)2008-11-15

Neat! It looks like that gearbox could not take too much more pressure, but I guess it works. Good Job!
