Marble races have been around for a long, long time. There are so many toy tracks out there that allow the chance for you and your buddies to competitively race colored orbs again and again.
At the same time, you don’t need some plastic thingamabob to have a race. You could race marbles on a dirt track, down the stairs, or even on a homemade replica of the Great Wall of China.
Personally, I can say I have never had the chance to race marbles on the Great Wall. I doubt many can if I’m being honest. Either way, this is pretty freakin’ awesome.
The world of marble racing definitely went on the upswing during the coronavirus lockdown, but that doesn’t mean everyone was willing to build their own track. Especially if that track is a replica of the most famous wall in the entire world.
Marble races are fun in it of themselves, but this video is mesmerizing to me. I don’t know if it is the music, the background, or even just the fact that I am astounded by the creativeness of this track.
If I had my own Great Wall track I would probably be spending hours on end racing marbles. I would also probably see if my friends would be willing to throw a few dollars down to see who’s marble could finish first. I would place my wager on the orange one with the white swirls in the middle, but that’s just me.
The one and only issue I do have with this video is that I really do not know who won the race. I think it was the red orb, but the first glimpse we get of the ‘winner’s circle’ is when there are nearly seven marbles in there. I guess I will need to do some races myself to see if red is truly the fastest.
