  1. Hey! Do you still have the Rye Airplane model? I'm with CoasterDynamix (Model builders as well!). We would love to have it!
  2. You should check out CDX Blocks then! www.cdxblocks.com
  3. My guess is metal fatigue. Notice how there is no bending or twisting at the break point? It looks like the metal simply cracked and sheared off. If it had hit something I think you would see much more damage at the break point because the metal didn't WANT to come apart. They're supposed to do non-destructive testing to check for metal fatigue. I'm mostly curious how that testing went or if it even happened.
  4. Check out this really good video of a Valravn construction video!
  5. Fury and Millennium Force should be for sale this weekend at the parks!!!
  6. Hey all! Dan here from CoasterDynamix. Things have been a little quiet on the coaster model front, but we've been working on a new concept that I think has turned out really great! We want your feedback. Here are a couple pictures of a stainless steel racing coaster concept. Ideal price would be in the $30 range and come as an (easy to build) kit. Let us know what you think!
  7. This is a long inversion headed back to the station. Are we sure this isn't a flying coaster? Seems like a very strange track shape for an invert
  8. Honestly guys, if it's not a B&M Wing Rider I might have to eat my hat. Parks buy these kinds of coasters in sets often and B&M is pushing this style hard. It's also not hard to do 'record breaking' things with a ride that only has 4-5 cousins in existence.
  9. Hey all! Here are a couple pictures from the debut at BrickWorld in Chicago (A lego convention)
  10. The Limited Edition sets will go for $100 for everything shown in the picture. That's about the same price as 20' of CoasterDynamix track with a train, with the added benefit of being able to apply it to LEGO! These new trains are beautiful. You can snap more cars in the back or take cars off. No screws at all!
  11. After 3 years of development, Adam Reed Tucker (The creator of the Lego Architecture Series) and the engineers at CoasterDynamix are excited to announce a new way to create roller coasters that will blow your mind! The X-Labs Roller Coaster Factory finally allows you to build hyper-realistic roller coaster models with your current Lego bricks! We have designed brand new coaster trains and a whole new track style that makes a Lego roller coaster a reality. Simply add the Roller Coaster Factory track and train to a Lego support structure and let your imagination flow. This amazing set will debut as a limited edition (Only 1000 sets will be made) collector’s item and will be available in the next week via the CoasterDynamix website. I will post more about the project as the week progresses!
  12. Headed to MM tomorrow from out of town. Any ticket deals going on besides the standard $45 online price?
  13. Hey all! We've begun work on our next O-Scale model. It'll be the same price and style as our Tumble Bug model. We've decided to do the classic Euclid Beach Rocket Ride! The cars will come Chromed just like the real ones. We plan to release it this summer, but I thought I would give you all some cool design shows and keep you updated on our progress. Here's the current state: For those unfamiliar with the rocket ride, here is a good picture: Euclid Beach Rockets
  14. It breaks into 4 pieces (each side). It actually isn't too hard to transport!
  15. Hey all. We installed the coaster at the customer's house a few weeks ago! Thought you might like a look at it And a video Right Here! We are also taking one of the models to a conference for Science Centers. Maybe you'll have a big roller coaster model at your local Science Center!
  16. Hey all! Production has finally started on Tumble Bug models! We decided to make 2 different models: The Turtle and The Bug. What do you think??
  17. Out of pure curiosity: How much does something like this cost in Knex parts?
  18. Hey all! We finished side 1 of the racing coaster. Here are some pictures of the prototype and side 1 next to eachother.
