Product Info

Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama's.  Hanayama's level 1 is equivalent to our level 5.... level 6 is equivalent to our level 10.

The Cast Cyclone is a puzzle in which each of the four individual pieces interlock with the other three.  While all the pieces initially look the same, there are in fact two different kinds of pieces.   The design of each ring has been carefully calculated, highly restricting the amount of possible movement and creating an extremely puzzling puzzle - a creative addition to a long line of challenging puzzles by Hanayama! 

In order for you to fully experience the "fun" and "agony" of solving the puzzle, no solutions are provided.  Give it your best shot and who knows, you may be pleasantly surprised by your achievement.

The difficulty level was decided to be "5" (out of "6") by the user voting campaign, where avid puzzle lovers got to have some input regarding the complexity of the puzzle.

This one should be a ten level difficulty. Precise positioning is required, or one has no chance at all in solving this one. I actually bought a second copy to act as a reference. Cyclone has become one of my favorites, along side of Enigma, Equa, Vortex, Hourglass, Quatro, etc. All these top level difficulty puzzles require exacting sequence and positioning. No "one hit wonders" in solution for any of these fine puzzles.

In my opinion the solution requires far too much force to accomplish. The online solution videos use the pre-production version of the puzzle which has uncoated dull metal pieces. I have the version with coated shiny gold and silver pieces. So perhaps something happened during the coating process to alter the close tolerances. Therefore, a frustrating puzzle. Hanayama puzzles are typically beautifully engineered so you're never required to exert much force - this one is the exception.
