This is the third published iteration of the Subatomic Paraball which has now been up for over 6 months! Since the last video I have added a new path, redesigned an old path, added a 6 foot tower, a switch, lights and about 2000 pieces to the original structure. The redesigned path is the roller coaster tubing path. This path was redesigned due to the high rate of failure, so this new path is more twisted and interesting but much more reliable. The other path is my own variation on the Big Ball Factory's spiral/ball arm path which has been shrunk to fit into a smaller space. This machine is still not finished and is being modified frequently. Go to the blog for updates: http://subatomicparaball.blogspot.com/
