Build your own working roller coaster model made of real wood! The Dragon Coaster is full of dips and turns with some engineering and physics thrown--so once you build your coaster, you can run marbles through it!
The assembly instructions feature a graphic novel with the Tinkineer cast of characters--Kelvin, Joule, Newt and friends--to communicate meaningful STEM concepts in an engaging format.
It's a fun way to learn about roller coaster design and conservation of energy while making an awesome kinetic sculpture!
The Dragon Coaster takes approximately three to five hours to build, and measures 8" when finished; for ages 12 and up. Made in the USA.
It also connects with the Skate Park (sold separately), so you can expand your marble empire and shuttle marbles back and forth!

Details: Tinkineer’s Marbleocity introduces children to engineering principles and physics concepts with dynamic hands-on STEM model kits made of precision-cut wood in the USA. Each kit includes easy-to-follow assembly instructions in a graphic novel that features the Tinkineer characters. The comic introduces a physics concept or engineering mechanism that is the focal point of the model, all in a fun and engaging way! The result is an awesome kinetic sculpture and some new physics and engineering insight! Building requires only household white glue…no special tools! It’s a unique and playful learning experience for beginner and experienced Makers alike!
