Perplexus Epic - 3D marble maze puzzle

Back in October of 2009, I posted about three spherical labyrinth puzzles. The idea with these toys is to flip, twist, and spin the sphere such that a small ball bearing inside follows a complex path from a starting point to the finish. Think of it as a maze in 3D that challenges both your mind and your dexterity. Two of the three puzzles mentioned in that post were the Perplexus and Superplexus. Building on that line of puzzles, shown here is the Perpluxus Epic.

From the puzzle description:

You've mastered the Original - can you beat the new Perplexus Epic? Navigate the steel ball along the tracks, through 125 barriers of varying difficulty as you try to defy gravity. With gnarly new twists, turns and barriers, Perplexus Epic provides hours of challenging, three dimensional fun. 8 1/2" in diameter.

I have played with the original Perplexus recently and it is really fun! I have it on good authority that the Perplexus Epic is quite a bit more challenging. (If you are looking for a starter version, try the Perplexus Rookie.)

Here's a link the Perplexus Epic 3D puzzle.
