Levitator Maglev Vehicles

SKU: W26223
A Pitsco Exclusive

Description

A magnetic levitation vehicle uses a strong electromagnetic field to resist gravity and to keep the vehicle floating without touching the ground. Students who need a few extra magnetic levitation vehicles to race up and down the Maglev II Track can build their own with these kits and packs. Note: The Levitator cannot be electrified; it can be used only on gravity tracks.

Order 30 kits to build a class pack!
