Are you the type of person that can DIY an Ikea furniture without looking at the instructions or are you the type of person that calls in help from your dad? It’s an important question to ask yourself before opening the box to the Steel Ball Roller Coaster from SpaceRail because depending on your answer, it’s going to take you either 20 minutes or 2 hours to construct.

So after unboxing SpaceRail Steel Ball Roller Coaster Kit and figuring out how to put it all together, the fun really starts. We’ll start by telling you that it’s self-perpetuating, which is pretty cool. You place two marbles into the central shaft and watch as they shoot off down the rails taking the hair pins with ease, gaining speed on the dips and looping the loop effortlessly until they reach the bottom of the central shaft.


The fun doesn’t stop there though because they will be automatically lifted to the top and off they will go again! The perfect gift idea for anyone with a love of physics, science of just crazy gizmos that will make people stop and stare.

There are a number of different routes for the balls to go down and a junction at which they randomly determine it: they will either be sent wheeling around hairpin bends or careering through a rather exciting loop-the-loop section before returning to the bottom of the central shaft, which will lift them to the top again. It’s a madcap, self-perpetuating gizmo that will delight kids and adults alike. Perfect for anyone with an interest in science and building things (there’s over half a meter of rails to assemble), it’s hypnotic, mesmerizing and oodles of fun.
