Orb Drop 5 features a simplistic single track design and large magnetic wheel lift mechanism, which makes it by far the easiest Orb Drop to assemble thus far. The battery-powered electric motor is turned on/off with the flip of a switch located on the side. The motor drives several gears that rotate a large magnetic lift wheel that picks up the orbs at the end of the track and drops them off at the beginning.
The track is composed of (8) main rail sections. These sections include: (5) standard rail curves which lead the orb around the track, (2) switchback rails which reverse the orb direction by 180 degrees while also increase its speed down the track, and a large gradual sloping funnel which allows the orbs to circle 360 degrees several times before dropping through the center.
