The monster project was built from several K'Nex construction sets. The project, named the "Atomic Para Ball," took three days to construct. The project included two towers, ball drops, a ferris wheel, and a parachute jump. During the construction, six webcams were set up along with a remote controlled camera having the capability to be manipulated by visitors to the site.
On February 2nd, when Chris hosted a family party at his house to celebrate birthdays, the Napa Valley Register newspaper sent out a photographer to take two to three rolls of the entire K'Nex construction team working on the Atomic Para Ball. Later the Napa Valley Register sent out a reporter to talk to Chris. An article, complete with pictures, about the K'Nex Atomic Para Ball appeared in the paper on March 11th! Read the article.
