Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2017 Race Report: Tick Tock the Croc

Here's a Sculpture!

Tick Tock the Croc

Tick Tock the Croc is a perennial favorite, back for a fourth year. With jubilant soundtrack, relentlessly cheerful pilots, and unbounded enthusiasm turning circles on Key Highway during moments of traffic congestion, its joy is contagious. Based on spectator polling by volunteer Kinetic Chickens, it was far and away the winner of the People’s Choice award for crowd favorite—again.

Tick Tock has won People’s Choice every year it’s raced. When giving out the trophy, the judges specifically challenged other teams to return with something that could unseat Tick Tock in 2018.

Tick Tock featured an illuminated chin, and dry ice fog on the water.

Pit crew helped tow him out of the water exit.

The team also towed along a popcorn popper, providing snacks to all.

Earlier instances were:

Tick Tock didn’t seem to do much for this year’s FOOD theme, aside from the peanut-butter clad pit crewmate.

Tick Tock also visited the American Visionary Arts Museum Jim Rouse Visionary Center.
