Introduction: Unnamed K'nex Rollercoaster

Hello there.
For the Rods and Connectors Contest, I've made this (yet unnamed) rollercoaster. I noticed there are quite a few guns entered, at least one ball machine, but no rollercoasters.
I wanted to do something original, and because it's my birthday today, I made this.
It's my first RC I've made in, what's been, more than a year. I'm pretty happy with the result, even though it's a bit simple. 
It has a lift hill, a "big" drop, a hill, a curved drop and a last curve, before returning to the lift hill.
The height is about 50 centimeters (rough estimate), the room it takes is three red rods wide, ten red rods long and tree red rods high. 
The station is unfinished, because I couldn't find any more yellow rods to complete the walls and roofs.

I hope you like this little coaster, and tell me what you think.

I'm using the iPod so it doesn't have a reply button. I wish it did though!

author

Ah, okay. My iPod does show it though, as this is typed on it ;)

Oh, OK. Sorry!

author

Don't worry :)
Also, there is a reply button, it'll look a bit more organized if you use that :)

This seems very similar to the alternate model of the serpent spiral coaster...

Yeah, now that you say it, it is similar in a way. Though, I didn't try to copy it, just something to try out making a small-ish rollercoaster. If it looks like the alternative model, than it was not intentional, but you're right, yes

This is a very nice, but simple, coaster. Good job, and I voted. >:C

Or will vote once the contest entry is accepted.

That picture is funny! What is that character?

author

That character is Karkat Vantas from a web comic called Homestuck; he's an alien species called a 'troll.' If you notice, my profile picture is the same character. I got it off of some fan of Homestuck on DeviantArt. It's a really cool drawing, and Karkat is definitely my favorite 'troll' in the comic. :3

author

I like this troll better :3

author

Pffft! Karkat's better. :3 To each his own, though. :3

author

Guise... guise...! You're all forgetting the best troll! D=

Whoa... Thats one screwed up world...

author

Lol i know right?

author

Yeah... If I got stuck there I would probably go insane... Unless I had an AA12 and a AT4...


...It really is a messed up world...
I can only think of one that is more horribly bewildering...

author

Or a gatling gun >:3

author

Where do I have this GIF I need right now?
Ah, yes, here it is...
(Although, I must say that Luna's season 2 colour scheme looks better, and I'm not a fan of most OC's ;p )

lolz.jpg
author

Yup! Thats how he looked when he came home from work today!

author

i thought so :D

author

:D

author

Hmmm. I looked it up, but honestly I couldn't find it... :/

Haha troll... :P

And what does this- :3 - mean!? Its in almost all your comments!

author

Oh - :3 is an emoticon that is supposed to represent mischievousness. I use it a lot for some reason, because I guess I'm usually feeling mischievous.

And what do you mean you couldn't find Karkat? He's all over the internet! Here's a link to his description on the MS Paint Adventures Wiki:
http://mspaintadventures.wikia.com/wiki/Karkat_Vantas

And, because I can, enjoy this .GIF file of John Egbert when he realizes that Fruit Gusher's are made by Betty Crocker. :3 This may be considered spam, but at this point, I just can't resist. :3

Sorry, Mike! If you want I guess I'll remove this comment due to its lack of relevance to this roller coaster. It is very nice, by the way. :3

Nice =D Sow why is your nickname honycakes?

author
dr. richtofen (author)Johnhall142013-07-09

Thanks.
The origin of that nickname is a long, and funny, history. It dates back from the time where the account that is now known as Blue Mullet 2 was still named 'KnexGurl'. Most people around that time had the impression that it indeed was a girl. That nickname was one of the results of that. 'KnexGurl' called me that one time, and since then, it's one of my nicknames

author

Before i had an account id been looking at the site for nearly 3 years. i saw that time. You were like what are honey cakes 0.o

author

I know, I'm butting into a conversation for the ninetieth time, but I didn't know that KnexGurl is Blue Mullet 2. And, Doc, that name's going to stick with you forever on this site.

Forehv-er... Forehv-er... Forehv-er... :3
