The classic marble run just got an upgrade!

The old-fashioned marble runs are an educational and timeless toy. They encourage creative thinking, develop fine motor skills and promote important science and engineering concepts.

GraviTrax is a major upgrade to the classic marble run! GraviTrax offers 100 pieces and 18 different construction elements to its interactive track system. The design, function, and speed of your marble are completely up to you. With traditional marble runs, your marble has only one way to go – that is, down. With GraviTrax, watch your marble take curves, crosses, free falls and even cannon depending on your unique combination of pieces.

GraviTrax promotes STEAM concepts such as gravity, magnetism, kinetics, and physics in an exciting and creative way. With its unique pieces and expansion sets, GraviTrax offers open-ended play. Ravensburger even offers a free iPhone and Android app to help you build virtual “blueprints” you can then use to create your own in real life!
