This paper roller coaster has 4 tracks and each starts when the one before it ends. A marble falls into a small cup and pulls a small tab out of the way for the next marble to start rolling.
It was built by

I included just about every feature that I could think of when I designed this roller coaster. It has a switch, three funnels, a half pipe, track hidden inside the structural beams and columns, a jump, many spirals and loops, switchbacks, hill and valley sequences, and stairs. It's 16'4" (4.97 meters) tall, yet its base is only 13" (33 cm) by 12.5" (31 cm). It's free standing, so it does not lean against anything for support. It weighs 2 pounds and 10 ounces (1190 grams). Besides the cardboard base, it is made of only stiff paper and tape. Every marble takes between 90 and 115 seconds to reach the end. See it in action. The Super Coaster
