Saturday 23rd July – Monday 5th September 2016

If you’ve been to our MAD Museum, you’ll know there are plenty of rolling ball machines and marble runs to play with. Each one is made unique with different track parts, hills, drops, turns and loops. Here are a few marble machines you’ll find at MAD…


Do these remind you of anything? 


Rollercoasters are just like giant marble runs.

Watch the balls get elevated up to the top of machines then with the use of gravity, make their way down to the bottom.

This Summer The MAD Museum wants to you design a marble machine- inspired rollercoaster.

Using our entry form and the suggested design elements, build your own thrilling roller coaster.
