Follow the instructions and build the coaster

Follow the step by step guide to help you build the Space Coaster!

Life can be pretty dull for a marble. Spending its whole life jangling about in a bag, occasionally taken out, just to be lobbed at its friends... there’s not much in the way of excitement. With this in mind, you can imagine the look on their shiny little faces as they whizz at white-knuckle speed around the Desktop Space Coaster.

Brilliant for kids and grown-ups alike, this flat-packed build-it-yourself rollercoaster kit contains everything you need to send the supplied steel marbles on the ride of their lives. With a loop-the-loop, gravity-defying bends and a motorised spiral elevator to carry the marbles back to the top of the track, the fun just runs and runs!

watch the balls whizz around the coaster for hours

The balls will continue to go round and round the Space Coaster until the battery runs out!

Customer Reviews

Rubbish!. Fragile, poorly made parts, the instructions contain outlines, to cut the rails to the correct length, these are not accurate. The whole thing is incredibly akward to put together, and once it has (if you manage at all!) been put together, you dare not take it apart due to the fragility of some of the key parts. Not impressed at all, looked good in the pictures, but isnt. Bought one for my son for xmas, now, 4 weeks later it is effectively broken, due to the amount of the rail holding brackets that have broken. Save your money, or buy something else!.

Got My space coaster fairly quickly after order, I was very enthusiastic to put the coaster together once I knew I had batteries! But after opening the box and part way through assembley I found I didn't have enough of part B Side brackets. Was very dissapointed with this as I was uable to complete the model. This is the first time i've had something i've bought from firebox go wrong but it is DEFINATELY the last time I will ever buy from Firebox again!

Another weird but wonderful idea, but can you connect more than one set together to create a Giant Space Coaster?
