Long Description:
Cannonball Run claims to be the World's Largest Marble Run. It actually uses bowling balls in it's track. There are two side-by-side tracks, that allow two balls to race each other to the bottom. The track consists os a series of zig-zag back and forth tracks. Balls start at opposite ends, each in a top of a tower and pass by each other on the zing-zag track several times while rolling to the bottom. The track is enclosed by a wire mesh to keep the balls from jumping the track. Balls are lifted to the top of each tower by a series of ropes and pulleys.

Cannonball Run is located at the side of Oddyssea, an interactive retail shop and garden on Main Street in Half Moon Bay.

The marble run can be seen in Google Street View.
