Roller Coaster Physics: Ferris Wheel


What you get

Become a thrill engineer and build twisty, turny roller coasters. Construct a mechanical Ferris wheel that lifts marbles to the top. Then add tracks, pegs, towers, and more to send marbles zooming around the ride. Explore kinetic and potential energy as you make two kinds of roller coasters: one that crosses over itself like a figure eight and another with a loop-the-loop. Ready to build a rad ride of your own?

The pegboard design was inspired by old-school wooden coasters and their scaffolding. Plus, all the hours we spent playing Roller Coaster Tycoon as kids!
