Amazing ping pong ball rollercoaster, made with toothpicks

Building a “simple” replica of a helicopter is just not demanding enough for Scott Weaver. So he started building a replica of a San Francisco, in it’s entirety, with hundreds of thousands of toothpicks.


It’s not the largest replica of San Francisco, or the largest toothpick replica in the world, but it has a total of six ping pong ball runs built into the replica itself.

He has spent 35 years building it, and still isn’t finished. The different paths guide the balls through nearly every single attraction San Francisco has to offer.


Through a cable car along the big boulevards, even the famous Golden Gate Bridge is passed. Further down the track, the balls pass by  palm trees, a dragon feature in China Town and the Island of Alcatraz.

The other runs, tour various sport even sites, along with many other sites, including: a windmill, and the Missouri battleship in the harbor among others.

If you want even more insights into this amazing work, here you go.
