Now that I’m back in Atlanta, Georgia, I have the opportunity to return to the Atlanta MakerFaire.
Prior to moving to Cincinnati a few years ago, I had displayed roller coaster related gadgets two years in a row. I basically “hired” a friend or my girlfriend for the weekend to help me out at the booth. Being that I was still learning how to machine and fabricate ride designs, I didn’t have substantial ride structure to display.
This year, however, I am poised to display some working rides and full scale production. I will also have some merch to sell/raffle off. Of course, these are my hopes. Just as before, I have packed my life full of events, trade shows, trips, and now graduate school. But I will stay committed and focused.
- One fully operational test track with banked turns and magnetic brakes.
- A station section with platform.
- Two full length trains
- one miniature ride test track
- five metal classic TRCP cars for sale
- shirts galore!
Most of this is going to be documented via YouTube and this website. So, if you’re interested and in the Atlanta area, then attend! October 27 & 28 at the Atlanta Freigth Depot.
