Subject: Roller Coaster


I found a cool roller coaster at Walmart. It sells for twenty bucks and
sets up in a fairly short time. It's called a "Six Flags Roller Coaster"
set. The basic kit has two designs, a "Ninja" suspended coaster and a
"Viper" coaster. It has plastic support stands with adjustable pieces that
hold a long section of flexible plastic rod. Twin tracks clip onto the rod
and the roller coaster cars fit on the track. Like a real roller coaster,
the cars have wheels above and below the track. The base has two rubber
spinning discs. The car goes into one side of the base unit and is shot
out the other side at a high velocity. It climbs up the track and then
goes downhill back to the start unit where it gets kicked off once
again. It took me about 45 minutes to figure out how to put it together.
The actual assembly was quickly accomplished in just a few minutes. It is
definitely a cool energy toy.

You can put multple kits together to get a bigger coaster.
