Marble Tsunami marble run machine: 11,000 marbles

Watch more with these video collections:

It’s a Marble Tsunami! This huge marble run machine or knikkerbaan has more than 11,000 marbles rolling, sliding, zigzagging, hitting bells, and clacking endlessly into each other, making quite a cacophony. With four paths and four tipping containers, the Marble Tsunami debuted in June 2015 at Monkey Town Indoor Playground in Gouda, The Netherlands.

DIY: With cardboard rolls, egg cartons, craft sticks, stiff paper, tape, and Rube Goldberg-style persistence, you can build a homemade marble run.

We’re also fans of Hape’s wooden marble run sets, a TKSST Gift Guide recommendation.

Related watching: Paul Grundbacher’s wooden marble machines, a collection of homemade Pitagora Suichi (Pythagora Switch) devices, and Andrew Gatt’s DIY Paper Rollercoasters for the classroom and at home.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
