1)How do those first gen boomerang lifts work? I'm thinking of doing something like that for the back spike.
2) Can I safely include fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hill in the ride using only top wheels, and a bigger wheel on the underside, grasping to the two main rails?
As for the layout, it depends on question 2. I plan on making the basis of it two verticle spikes, with some trick track in the middle. Depending on how gravity works, I might make the trick track into a curving hill, resulting in a S shaped layout. Also, I'd like to make the front spike past-verticle, but I dont think thats possible unless I modify the carriage with a set of undertrack wheels.
As for the actual track, I'm thinking use 2x4s and such for the base of the track, then cover it with a few layers of plywood to smooth things out. The verticle spikes will come out by linking the track pieces up at a constant rate of 18 degrees per increment. (It should take 5 segments to get it smoothly from horizontal to verticle.)
