Just when I think "Wow that thing is HUGE" the camera goes up the tower, and up, and up, and up; and then there are even more of those machines.  ohmy amazing!

Too bad it doesn't work very well. They have to keep adding more balls or pushing ones along that got stuck.

I guess it does work, but in some locations it can take quite some time for the necessary amount of balls to arrive. As it is viewed by a lot of persons (as part of an exhibition) and given the declining attention span from most people, it becomes a necessity to drop in extra balls at some locations.

To me it is still a work of art and I am a bit jealous for not having lego anymore or the time to play with it. Sad

Epic balls of epic. It's indeed a shame it breaks down and doesn't work perfectly on all parts (so many balls lying outside the track), but I estimate part of the reason is that the track had to have corners that could be moved to fit the exhibition place properly.

I think there's a very profound and universal truth lurking in that sentence. Thmbsup Grin
