For 2010, this will be possibly the last display I will do for the Community Days Carnival and I have something big in-store. Let me introduce you to Falcon; a 12 foot tall, 200ft+ long K'nex roller coaster. This creation will be the world's longest, tallest non-launched, complete circuit behemoth.
"Riders" will leave the loading platform and head up a 3 foot lift hill and then drop into several helixes and curves and then climb a 12 foot tall monsterous lift then drop at an angle of 85 degrees then soar into the air through an 8 ft tall 135 degree banked small curve called a Stengel Dive. Riders will then drop then rise into a 6 foot tall hammerhead turn and soar into a mid-course brake run.
Following the brake run will be plenty of rabbit hops sure to produce many moments of negative g's. The grand finalie will be two helixes and then into the final brake run.
I plan on experimenting with some new systems that have never been added to a K'nex coaster such as the use of a modeling motor, and custom lift chain for the major lift hill, the use of magnets for the final brake run.
Falcon will officially take to the skies on June 28th, 2010 and will also feature more informative displays and possibly more! Keep checking this page for updates on construction.
