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.
Videos:



Cool! This reminds me of a swinging inverter ride, where the people get on and the giant thing that is shaped like a ship flies back and forth. Very impressive!

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)  FrozenStar5 years ago
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!

It might be but I've never seen it. I thought of this ride and name myself.

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

:O! awesome job, i like the gear mech, but it looks like the crank is going to break>.<
Neat! It looks like that gearbox could not take too much more pressure, but I guess it works. Good Job!
