Tornado96 is proud to present Dragon Gem!
This is my largest and best ball machine to date. It has 3 new lifts and 9 paths. One of it's major features is the dragon animatronic.All 3 lifts are designed by me and instructions will be submitted as well for the 2 new elements incorporated into this contraption. One of it's key features is the Dragon animatronic which gave a nice theme to the ball machine!

Without further ado I present to you the video! (with one of the best songs!)

    Inspiring! But dragon force Is not the best band. The guitar player is a frawd, because he speeds up his playing.

    Do you have pictures from the new lifts in this one? I need some for the arch chain lift, conveyor belt lift and the reverse arm lift, to add them in the lift guide.

    It would be cool if the path would lead the ball into the mouth of the dragon.:)
