Description This is my new mega coaster Helix. The main attraction to the ride is pretty much the uphill 3/4 helix that I made. I will shorten the lift hill for my next roller coaster, because I ran out of pieces at the end of this. The cars nearly all get on the chain lift, and that was a lot of power wasted. But, like I said before, it was all the pieces I had, making this not exactly a great coaster. On the other hand, I came up with a good "formula" for making turns.And this might be my best coaster.(sadly)Anyway, hope you liked it...HGCoasters

A Giga coaster is over 300ft tall, while a Mega coaster is 200ft tall. The only difference for knex would be the style, as Mega's are usually B&M and Giga's are Intamin. Something I would suggest would be to take more time smoothing an supporting your track, you will be able to keep speed much better and make your rides better.

A hyper coaster is a 200' coaster.


Nice work on the coaster. Keep up the work and keep honing your skills.
