Operation Instructions

There are 3 main things that can be done with the puck. It can be dropped down the middle of the track showing the slow drop along the top of the track, the fast drop down the middle of the track followed by another slow drop on the bottom of the track. It can be dropped down one side of the track so that it will fall quickly but turn with the track. The track can also be turned so that it is flat and the puck can be slid at track from the inside. This does some interesting things.
