Marble Roller Coaster

  1. Grades K-2
  2. Grades 3-5


Become a thrill engineer and build twisty, turny tabletop roller coasters. Start with a battery-powered Ferris wheel that lifts marbles to the top, then add tracks and towers to make a figure eight or loop-the-loop track. Switch it on and watch the marbles zoom round and round. Ready to build a rad ride of your own?

Additional details

From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

The downward slope leading up to the loop in the Loop-the-Loop build was inspired by the Brachistochrone Curve – meaning that the marble picks up more speed faster to complete the loop and continue on the track!
