When Justin built this elaborate Rokenbok recreation of the Demon Drop ride, which is similar to freefall rides at amusement parks, he was just 15 years old. The talented teen's ride not only drops the car down the vertical track but also returns it to the starting position so the ride can drop again.
Take a look at how the Demon Drop ride works below:

A lot of people don't realize how many awesome things their ROK Star Controller can do! Here are just a few of the hidden features!
1. Flash back and forth between vehicles, like the back button on your TV remote!
2. Use the "1" button for a siren.
3. Hold down the right forefinger button to enter slow mode for more precise turns.
4. Mute sounds by holding down the left forefinger button and hitting "B". Unmute with the same buttons.

Jeff Boden and his wife have three budding engineers ages 3, 5, and 7 who love to build. Their oldest has been asking for Rokenbok and watching our videos for 3 years. Well, this Christmas his wish came true.
Jeff said, “My wife and I had no idea there would be such an extreme reaction. But, I suppose that is the reaction you get when a kid has been asking for Rokenbok for Christmas for 3 years. That's 3 years of fulfilled hopes and dreams exploding out of a 7 year old boy!”

We always love to see family's do exceptionally creative things with Rokenbok building sets and this bobsled and track is no exception. They started by creating the track out of a Rokenbok building set and then packing it with snow and letting it freeze overnight. They utilized most of the pieces out of the Inventor's Tool Box, which is the largest Rokenbok building set and has a lot of 30 and 60 degree angle snaps.

Rich has been teaching his students engineering and math concepts using Rokenbok for a decade. In addition to using Rokenbok in his classroom he also loads everything into a 24-foot truck to bring to a summer camp for special needs children called Camp Discovery.
