The Wave Runner is a mousetrap powered boat that glides across the surface of the water with minimal resistance. The Wave Runner can be built for both speed and distance. The Wave Runner uses the same propulsion system as our land vehicles but with a paddle wheel instead of drive wheels. The length of the lever arm or the size of the paddles can be changed in order to adjust the speed and/or distance of travel. As with all our kits, The Wave Runner comes with step-by-step instructions that are filled with tons of top secret performance tips and tricks that have been developed exclusively by Doc Fizzix so that you will have all the information you need to make The Wave Runner Kit a winner.


  • 6-inch lever arm
  • Paddle wheel system
  • Pontoon design
The Wave Runner takes more work to build than other mousetrap vehicle kits and is designed for those individuals who have had experience building similar projects and experience using hand tools. This kit requires some cutting and drilling by the builder. Construction time will vary but most builders can assemble this kit within 90 minuets. The Wave Runner Kit comes with a 6-inch lever arm making The Wave Runner Kit a good all purpose vehicle without the need for adjusting the lever arm length once assembled.
