This expansion component for the Gravitrax marble run system is literally a blast! The magnetic cannon will propel your marble run to the next level, and 3 additional marbles will allow you extend your creative horizons and craft even zanier and more complex marble runs than the starter set allows for, with multiple marbles travelling down different sections of track simultaneously.
Although we're all familiar with the classic marble run building kits that have entertained children and the young-at-heart for generations, Gravitrax takes the concept to even higher planes, with a unique hexagonal stacking building system, transparent bases, inifinite combination possibilities limited only by your imagination, and special tiles (found in the Starter Set) like vortexes, magnetic cannons, and splash pieces that send mutliple marbles careening in different directions and section of track! You'll watch as the marbles test your understanding of gravity and kinetic energy, and unleash your inner scientist by discerning what tweaks and modifications will allow your marbles to complete your run successfully!
This add-on ups the ante by allowing you to add another magnetic cannon to your track and give your run some additional oomph and pizzaz that's sure to excite yourself and onlookers alike! When the gravity cannon is triggered, it will fire and launch the marble, propelling it through the rest of the track with great speed, allowing you to create runs with vertical hills, or to have your marble sustain its momentum across greater lengths of track. This kit also includes 3 marbles so you can really test the gravity hammer's power! With this kit plus the starter pack, you'll be able to build a much longer more exciting, and more complex run! See how long you can build your new run while still managing to make your marbles complete the run without running out of momentum by using the magnetic cannon to add some kinetic energy into the equation.
And of course, you can experience your heightened creations in a fully immersive virtual reality (VR) experience! Fetch your VR headset (the video can also be projected onto a tv with the right casting device), download the Gravitrax app, and ride your own coaster in the first person from the perspective of the marble! Experience every twist, turn, drop, cannon shot, and freefall in realtime and get some firsthand knowledge on what it would feel like to ride your run like a roller coaster! Gravitrax offers the first fully immersive marble run experience. Grab the grandparents, aunts, uncles, the whole family, and experience the most incredible iteration of this classic learning toy together!
