The height of both rides but that is in centimeters and not in feet or inches!

The good: The top-hat is really good. The supports are really realistic and I love the fact that you added a little zumanjaro to it

 

The bad: The second hill is WAY too small. There is way too little space between the station and transfer track and also, I would have preferred it if you used the classic Knex coaster pieces.

Thanks that you like it

I didn't had enough space and pieces for a bigger Airtime hill. I was using the micro K'nex track because I only have one K'nex building set

Wait, you only have one Knex set? And you made Kingda Ka with it? That's pretty impressive.

Looks awesome!! I really like the drop tower! I have tried and failed many times to make a drop tower with Knex! Nice to see you were able to make one work, and you made it work well!! I like the fact you even added the brakes to Kingda Ka!

 

Awesome job!!
