Boxes are the main parts of the vehicle. They are used to connect items such as a Soda Bottle and carry other vehicle parts in it such as the Pig and the Motor. You cannot start a ride having Motors that are not in a Box.


There are two kinds of boxes:

  • Wooden
  • Metal


These boxes have the same use, but the main difference between the two boxes are :

  • Metal Boxes are more durable, but at the cost of being heavier.
  • Wooden Boxes have less weight, but wood boxes are also less durable.

Below is the comparison of weight between the two boxes.


The Metal Box weighs twice that of the Wooden Box.

The result of the same test, but with a 2 by 3 box made out of metal. As you can see, from the same height, the Metal box did not separate from each other much.

If a box receives enough force, it can do either of the following:

  •  Break off of other parts
  •  Release the object it is holding
  •  Both of the above at the same time.

  • Metal also has an alien variation that lets it slide on terrain as if it were ice.
