K'nex Coaster Update 2

I have finally assembled the loop's structure after nearly a week of bad weather. I took advantage of a sunny day and built not only the entire structure, but the track as well. The loop is now 100% finished with a functioning and tested track, so all that remains to be done is the launch track (construction starting tomorrow) and the return track at the end. I am still waiting for about 100 feet of new roller coaster tubing to come in the mail, but I should be done within the next week.

Here is the completed loop structure supported by a gigantic A-frame, one of the largest, if not the largest structures I have ever built. The loop stands 12 feet tall and 12 feet wide. I have no idea how many pieces are in it, an estimate will come later.

  1. Wow, do you also have any movies of the roller coaster? I expect about 5,000 pieces in your construction. And is it still there, because you built it a year ago, didn't you? By the way I have also a roller coaster site: ToyRollerCoasters.net. Just have a look and comment it if you like to. I am still making huge constructions to present on the website.
