Build a Roller Coaster

Step 5 of 6: Test your coaster

Place your marble at the beginning of your roller coaster and let it go. Did it work? Figure out what went wrong, and make adjustments to your course as needed.

Try this - Once you get your roller coaster to work, try starting the coaster at a higher point and see what happens. Try a different design by adding more loops, hills or curves to your course.
