I thought it would be a challenge lol but had it done in about 3 hrs if that.
Assembling this 3D puzzle was both challenging and relaxing at the same time. It took me two days, off and on, to complete the steel-ball roller coaster. It is highly recommended to follow the plan step by step trusting it to get you to a successful finish. Patience helps, but hey, what's the hurry when it's fun, you WANT the fun to last. And then, . . . THEN, more fun happened when I turned the handle to watch the amazing engineering take place as the balls climbed up the cam-carrier ladders and then swirl downward to the catch wheel.
Fun, Fun, + Fun!
This is a well crafted, high quality mechanical device. It was satisfying to build and was well manufactured in way that minimizes splitters or cracking. Overall, building it was a rewarding experience!
Good tight fit. Nice thick plywood. Excellent graphics on the instructions.
They are fun to build more fun to watch them operate! I just wish I could connect them together.
I have quite a few of these models. They've all been amazing to do; amazing to be able to just snap them together without glue or tools.
I got the special 4-pack to give to my brother, brother-in-law, and two nephews. They took to them right away, starting to work on them the next day. My brother-in-law, a carpenter by trade, was very impressed how well the pieces fit together, even though they are so small. Now, I have to get one for myself!
Was intriguing right from the opening the box..having our own laser cutting intricate pieces like the ones in this puzzle.
The instructions were amazing.
Only item should be in puzzle.

Pieces are small, that’s the only reason for liking and not loving it. This company has been great to work with and helped me out with a problem I was having. Thanks
It's a birthday gift for my son so I don't know how it works yet, but it arrived promptly and in great shape!
It was so much fun to put together! I am now quite addicted to these puzzels- i got my kid a Large Ferris Wheel with the music box? I put it together FOR THEM and promised to let them paint it- and to buy more puzzles because they get stressed about all the tiny pieces- but they love punching the pieces out for me and smoothing them with sandpaper. Oh and they asked if you could please add more than 1 piece of sandpaper- it is simply too small to sand all the edges properly! I myself did none of the punching or sanding and I loved spending time together with my pre-teen that did not involve an argument! I just happened to have extra sandpaper from a previous craft so it worked out fine in the end- i am seeing these puzzles as an investment in family harmony! Thanks guys! Got to get my order picked out!
Our 8 year old assembled this, and we all love it. There was one piece that needed a little tweaking but otherwise it works beautifully.
I purchased for my husband.
Love it. Challenging to build but great detailed instructions!! Fun to watch the steel marbles negotiate to two tracks. Works flawlessly!! :-)
Great gift for a 10 year old!
My husband and granddaughter absolutely loved doing this
The quality of your marble roller is excellent. I ordered 1 from a different company and the wood was thin and flimsy so the pieces kept breaking. I ended up throwing it away....what a waste of time and money !! Your wood pieces are very sturdy and all the pieces snap together easily. We are enjoying watching the marbles go on 2 different tracks.
Purchased the marble run roller coaster for my 8 year old grandson for Christmas. He and his dad spent a rainy afternoon building it together. They sent me the picture! I am one satisfied grandma.
This was a great puzzle for someone who loves puzzles. My hubby and son loved the challenge and the final product.
I bought this for my 19-year-old son show has loved Rube Goldberg machines since he was a kid. This has been pronounced his favorite gift from this Christmas!
Wonderful craftsmanship, perfect gift item for someone who has everything.
Well made, great instructions. A lot of fun - definitely recommend
Bought it for my son in law he loved it and enjoyed putting it together
Still in box, purchased for gifts.
Haven't bought mine yet!
They look awesome that's why I purchased them for gifts to my adult children....
I got this for christmas. My grandson put it together. It worked perfectly.
My daughter loves it. She stayed up 1/2 the night building it.
Bought this as a gift for my 43 year old “engineer” grandson. He was absolutely delighted. He was familiar with the product and commented that he had always wanted one. He will assemble it with his four sons! More to come…
Complex enough that a professional sailing yacht restorer took from Christmas evening until 1:30am on the 27th to complete. And he loved it. Looking for one with a greater degree of difficulty to keep him distracted for days (hopefully).
Kept the kids busy
Christmas gift. Still assembling.
Not finished yet. Like the challenges
Was very enjoyable, putting it together. Instructions were quite clear.
I bought several items from wooden Town for Christmas presents for my family and I really look forward to seeing their faces when they receive them.
I enjoyed the time spent working on it. As it was my first one, I made some errors and broke some parts (not many). I was able to use glue to fix it. Good use of time for old fat fingers. Getting ready to order my next one.
A great product in so many ways. The engineering really impressed me, both in terms of how the pieces are laser cut; very precise and amazingly efficient how they are laid out, and in terms of how fun it is to build the Marble Run. The instructions are clear, with one exception, and the pieces fit together very well. Then, the moment of truth, when you are done and wind the crank; fun!!!
It's a gift that is sure to please.
Got this as a gift for my grandson! He’s great at putting this kind of thing together. I believe he’s gonna like it! I’ll let you know!
Bought it as a birthday gift to myself and found it to be easy to assemble and fun to watch. It also generated a lot of different conversations.
I'm looking forward to giving this to my daughter and soninlaw to put together together. They do tremendous things together and she's gonna love it. Thanks to everyone that makes these. I'm gonna be ordering me one after christmas

I bought this for a 9 year old neighbor and his parents are sure he is going to love it. I am sure too.
Bought as a xmas gift for my sister. She loves assembling large Lego items and I thought this would give a different kind of challenge. Thank You!
Haven't seen this in action yet since it's a Christmas gift. My son is a Mechanical Engineer and would make "marble runs" with his Legos all the time as a child. I know he's going to love this! Can't wait to see it when completed!
Did not disappoint! I’m a fan of making balsa wood models but this takes it to a higher level. Extremely well produced and the instructions were bang on. Every part fit together perfectly and there was also some thinking involved, never boring. I look forward to the next purchase and have already recommended it to others.
This really works. So much fun putting together.
She loved building it, it brought her closer to her dad who has passed and was quite the engineer
My three purchases were for Christmas gifts for my 15 ye old great grand who loves Legos. I thought she would appreciate these projects.
Built it with my 9 year old granddaughter. Not sure who had more satisfaction and fun in the process.
Fun kept me busy while I was recuperating
My Son and I had a great time assembling this puzzle!
Fantastic precision laser cutting. Alittle hard on arthritic thumbs, we grunted a bit but laughed a lot too….. we did it as a couples date night over a few nights in a row
Great fun , loved working on this one. Works like the ad shows and sturdy.
Being 68 it brought back memories of building model cars. It was fun.
Perfect gift for my grown son!
Enjoyed building this project and it works great
Very satisfied with purchase, enjoyed the challenge!
the orders were birthday gifts for a nephew and a granddaughter. We ordered two products for ourselves, one a future gift for my wife and one we assembled immediately. Enjoyed assembling the owl pencil holder and have had many favorable comments concerning the look of it. These are high quality products and we highly recommend their purchase. Jerry Ehmke
So far we are loving the design and instructions. We have chosen 1 day per week, wife & myself…we are in our 70’s to work together constructing this product. Instructions are very good and as architect we are having a lot of fun. We hope to get it done before July for our grandson’s birthday. I think it is achievable. I am so glad I found this product on an application on an iPhone (Solitaire). Looking forward to buying other that I saw on the website. Love it….
I found the model very precise and well engineered. The instruction booklet was extremely detailed and easy to follow. I was surprised at how strong the thin plywood material was. Very enjoyable build. Thanks for a good product.
Absolutely AMAZING quality! My daughter loved it!
I am very impressed with the marble roller coaster. The parts were all precisely cut and the instructions were perfect. Everything went together per the instructions. I remembered to use the wax where indicated and everything functioned great. On the first few runs, a marble would occasionally fall off until I realized that one connection was not properly snapped in place. Once I fixed that, it runs perfectly. I was surprised because construction sets often don't have great instructions but that was not the case here. Thank you for the fun!
A lot f fun putting this together. Interesting to watch when finished.
Not very hard to assemble as long as you follow the instruction manual and take your time . Once you get it done right it works flawless. Great conversation piece, every one can't help but give the crank a few turns.
I built this with my 33 year old Son-in-law. We had to do some final fine tuning and then it worked exactly like the picture shows.
This is a birthday gift for my grandson! We’ll see how he likes it.
This is mine part way thru build. This is the 4th model I've built! Love them!
I purchased this for my husband for Christmas. He couldn't wait to put it together.
He had so much fun constructing this awesome marble rollercoaster.
A gift for my son who ha a marvelous time assembling the model. Great!!
My husband loves it and can’t wait to get another
At the present time, I haven't started to put the roller coaster together. I'm going to be laid up for a couple of days, then I'll assemble it.
My 14yo loved putting this together. I’d love to get him another one for his bday

Gave as a Christmas gift. He loved it and wants more…
Thank you it is well packaged. Haven’t done it yet
Bought for my grandson he loves it.
It was very fun and challenging! Can't wait to try a different one.
My husband "whooped" when he opened it!! So excited to build it...
This is an intriguing device - carefully designed and engineered so that when correctly assembled, the assembler can feel proud of the finished product. It works as intended and is an attractive show piece, sure to fascinate all who come to view - and perhaps play.
Bought this as a Christmas present project for our 10 year old grandson and his dad. They took two days assembling it and had a ball working together. Plus, at the end, it actually worked! They were delighted with the contraption and so were the grandparents, us.
Purchased this for my son for Christmas and he loved it. Couldn’t wait to put it together. It’s truly amazing how well it’s designed and we will definitely purchase more!
Gave it to my 7 year old grandson for Christmas and he and I put it together. We had a good time and it fit together really well and worked great when we finished it.
My husband loved it as one of his Christmas gifts.
It's been a pleasure putting it together and the quality was excellent.
Absolutely loved building this. Everyone that sees it wants to play with it and then can’t stop. I’m excited to buy another one.
Very happy with the quality and workmanship that went into this marble run. It’s amazing to see how accurate and intricate the pieces are and yet robust enough to assemble. I would recommend a kit to anyone who likes model building or marble runs. I have 2 so far, more to come.
I enjoyed building it and the family enjoyed watching it being built! Well worth the money. Would order again.
Great family project! We enjoyed the challenge and the time together as a family!
Very cool coaster. My 10 year old was enthralled with building this and it took him a couple days to get everything together. Beefy design, and cool concept that teaches about building and mechanics. Highly recommended!
This is very well crafted. My adults sons thought it was a great puzzle to work for Christmas. Reminiscent of a toy they used to love. Will definitely buy another model for future fun!
Gave as gift, so have not seen or experienced the product. However, service and communication was outstanding.
Bought this as a gift for my husband. It is nicely designed and was fun to put together. Everything works well together, the marbles run very smoothly and is calming to watch run!
I bought this as a gift for my crafty 16yr old daughter and she loved it! Took some patience and a pair of strong hands to finish. Only took us two days. Now she wants something bigger and harder LOL
My son worked on it and finished it within a few hours and he love it!
Bought it for my grandson. It was truly unique, he loves it at 13 years old
My grandson loves this Marble Run. He is putting it together and he finds it hard to pull himself away from it. He is enthralled with all the moving parts and loves the interaction. He enjoys being challenged immensely. This is a great product and a great teaching tool for children with higher IQs.
