Space Warp is a fun game for all

The assembly roller coaster game Space Warp was first created in the 1980s.

Initially, a Japanese company which made toy created this toy but stopped its manufacture in 1988, for reasons unknown.

However, they still continued manufacturing parts of the toy that might be needed for replacement purposes and kept creating these parts till they ran out of supplies and materials around 1995.

At that time, the company started making the toy again but only for Japanese customers.

However, after there was a huge demand for the toy in the United States, Think Geek, a different company decided to start manufacturing and marketing the Space Warp toy specifically to be imported to the United States.

That is how the toy came to be such a popular assembly game in the US.

What is the game Space Warp all about?

It is essentially an assembly game where the players can construct their own roller coaster  out of the parts that are provided.

This game is multi-dimensional which means that you can construct it in a certain way one time and then take it apart and construct it differently another time.

It is a fabulous game indeed because not only does Space Warp give kids and adults alike a lot of things to do in their free time and bond with each other while at it.

It also helps in developing certain important faculties in children, given that they sharpen their hand eye coordination skills, their mental skills, get better at solving problems and also make more precise movements.

The assembly of the game also makes the children and adults who play it more understanding and patient.

The Space Warp game

Comes equipped with several lengths of tubing that is cut up to form the various waves and curves that go into making the track.

These are then held in place by holders that are made of plastic.

Steel balls are provided which are moved along the conveyor to the top of the roller coaster by a battery powered conveyor belt.

The aim of the game is to ensure that these balls stay in place and do not fall off when any adjustments or changes are made to the entire assembly.

The best part about the Space Warp game is that it is hands on, everything has to be done from scratch.

One has to cut out lengths of  the heavy plastic tubing roll that is provided in the kit.

Then the length cut outs are formed into loops and curves.

One has to attach them securely with the rail holders and hooked metal rods.

The only problem that some people might face with the latest import of the game – the Space warp 5000 LIMITED BLACK VERSION (japan import) is that the Japanese import has the instructions in Japanese unfortunately.

However, that is not really a problem because the booklet also provides many well executed illustrations and the measurements are also given along side.

Take some time out when assembling this game and be a bit careful about arranging and structuring the parts together.

Going about it in a defined and organized manner will help you enjoy the experience of Space Warp the game, immensely.
