This track has the following paths and elements:

Releasing mechanism / start

1: – Slalom, Music track, landing on bell street.
2: – Spring boards, marble organ (chimes), 2 holes to nail box.
3: – Jump track with springs, landing on bell street.
3A:- Chutes, rattle track, curved track, more chutes, landing on bell street.
Bell street with holes to another 4 paths:
4: – Woodblock, halfpipe, dropdown on springs and spiral gong (made of a bicycle spoke) in Nail Box
5: – Chutes leading to 2 holes to nail box
6: – Roundabout (funnel), dropdown on springs in Nail Box
7: – Second woodblock with hole to Nail Box
Nail Box / Finish: The nail box is filled up with nails, screws, springs, gongs and bells. Paths 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7 comes out here through holes.
