So Snyder’s is sponsoring a Pretzel Coaster Build Off in which you can win a trip to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, PA. I’m not eligible for the contest because I live on the West Coast, but I thought it would be super fun to build a pretzel coaster.
It took me a few hours, a glue gun, and a few episodes of Veronica Mars Season 1 to build my coaster. I think my hours of Roller Coaster Tycoon came in handy a little as I worked on my coaster. I started with the loop because I thought it could be the most challenging part.
Here’s a little more progress. I mostly stuck to using the pretzel twists for curves and the Snaps for straight track.
And, the end result.
Since I’m not submitting it to the contest, I added cereal wheels to the little coaster cars.
I made a little place for pretzel people to get on the coaster, with a little covering and steps.
Here’s a better view of the loading area.
And the little coaster car going into the covered area.
Another view of the whole thing.
Some other super-crafters are making pretzel coasters too!
