Play Tested Review
Looping six times round the tower, this is a pretty spectacular build - especially with the propeller-powered car zipping along at a speed almost to fast to catch.
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I was very happy with how fast the roller coaster travels on the tracks and the charger for the roller coaster car worked well. I liked showing the roller coaster to my friends when they came over. The coaster took 3 sessions to build, each about 2 hours. It was fun to build and there was no issues building it. The instructions were follow because they clearly highlighted the pieces that you had to attach. One of the spider web papers broke (a hole in the side of the paper to put the KNEX piece through but it ripped) and I had to tape it but the rest of the K'NEX stayed together really well. I have previously built a K'NEX roller coaster and this one was more fun as it was more well put together and this one had an engine in the car itself and traveled really fast.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
My son (10) loved this building experience. He started on it as soon as we got it - and he loved using it when it was done. The instructions were clear and easy to follow but still involved a level of challenge. The pieces fit together well and created a fun coaster. He also really liked that instead of motorized parts on the coaster, the car itself is motorized, and that you could put the coaster either standing on the ground or on it's side and both ways worked. The car was a pretty noisy when it was running as it runs with a fan turning at the back - I do wish it has been quieter. The coaster worked really well in that the car could speed along the track really fast and wouldn't fall off. My son showed off this track to all friends that came over and they were all impressed. Overall this was a great toy! my daughter (8), really wanted to build the coaster, too, but my son insisted it was just for him. I think she could have done it as well, as it was no problem for my son. This is probably my son's favorite toy that we tested this year. He was so excited to get it and start it right away and he had a great time with it.
