About: I am a guy, I love how helpful everyone is on here, and how kind they are, have a good day! :D

This is Amnesia. It is a swinging pendulum ride. If you decide to build this please note that this is my design. You don't have to build the ticket booth and "Amnesia" card, as I did for detail.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: The Base.

Follow the pictures.

Step 2: Base Part 2

Build this.

Step 3: Base Structure Support

Build this. Flexi Rods are optional. For detail.

Step 4: Base Structure Part 2

Build this. Flexi rods are optional.

Step 5: Motor

Flexi Rods are optional. Use the slower black motor. Please use the right amount of spacers!

Step 6: Pendulum Part

Build this. If you don't use the correct amount of pieces, each side of the arm will be uneven and would not work properly.

Step 7: Seating

Build this. USE ALL THE PIECES.

Step 8: Connecting Arm to Base.

You arent done yet. 2 more things. >:D.

Step 9: Weight Support

Build this. YOU NEED IT. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PIECES.

Step 10: Ticket Booth.

Tou can build this if you want. You don't need to do it, though. You can draw my "Amnesia" template or you can draw your own. Thank you.

    Yeah. Congragulations to you too for yours getting featured! Maybe they do realize that K'nex are more than plastic pieces.

    This is really neat. Thanks for posting. I think a few of my 8th graders would enjoy building this project for our little Knex amusement park.

    I don't expect anyone to build this, since it's so long, but, it pays off after you build it. XD
