Constructing Kings Island's Diamondback CoasterDynamix Nanocoaster model

Today I decided to add Kings Island’s Diamondback roller coaster to my collection of CoasterDynamix Nanocoasters. These miniature models of some of the top thrill rides in the world are manufactured from high quality stainless steel and constructed on a laser-cut acrylic base. They’re easy to assemble, requiring no glue to build. All you need to do is punch out the parts, insert them into the base and bend the tabs to hold the coaster in place. It’s that easy!

Diamondback is the 10th Nanocoaster I've collected so far. They all fit nicely in my office. 

Watch this time lapse video as I build the CoasterDynamix model of Diamondback:

In addition to Diamondback, Kings Island also offers other Nanocoasters. Guests can find the likes of the new Orion giga coaster, The Beast, Banshee, Mystic Timbers and the retired Son of Beast and Vortex at select shops around the park, including the Emporium on International Street and DB Trading Post in Rivertown. They can also be purchased through Kings Island’s online store.

Built in 2009, Diamondback stands 230 feet at its highest point with a first drop of 215 feet at a 74-degree angle. Riders snake their way around 5,282 feet of track at speeds up to 80 mph on one of the top ranked steel roller coasters in the world.
