Adventure Ball Machine

Time to build: 1 week
Made by: Matthew Bakon

This is the first of the adventure ball machine saga! I am going to make a lot more of different shapes and sizes. It starts with a chain lift which leads to a two way toggler. The first way down goes down a circular track int a ramp. Then it goes down a steep hill to a half loop. From there it jumps into another slope with a wheel, goes to the waiting tray and gets ready for another go!

I changed the photo so you could see this way down. From the toggler the ball goes down two ramps and into a pinwheel. From there a slope leads to a drop and another slope. After that it goes down yet another ramp and into the waiting tray where it waits for the chain and another adventure. Enjoy!

Eagle fighter

I thought about this fighter plane while i was playing a game on the computer. I hung it from the roof of my room so it would look like it was flying. I included a pilot seat and some boosters. I hope you enjoy it.

Croc Catastrophe

Croc Catastrophe Coaster!
Made by Matthew Bakon.
Time to build: 3 days.

This is one of the many roller coasters that I have built. If you look well, you will see the car run into a crocodile made out of k'nex and does an inline twist through the body of the crocodile and then it comes out of the tail and does a few other things like a loop,etc.

Twin Towers

Knex Twin Tower Coaster!
Made by Matthew Bakon.
Time taken to build: 2 days.
This roller coaster was one of my first custom roller coasters with the new type of roller coaster made by Knex. It consists of about 9 turns and a loop and only a bit of straight bits.
