Review:
The time it takes to build this 800+ piece set is well worth the dramatic results - two battery-operated cars chug up the motorized chain lift then plunge, twist and eventually turn completely upside-down along 20 feet of dips and curves on this soaring 3’ high roller coaster. Pictorial instructions are very clear and offer two different building options. The biggest challenge our testers faced was waiting to try out the cars until the coaster was completed - all of which added to the thrill and suspense. As with many K’nex projects, this one takes up a lot of room in our house - we’re considering an addition just to store them all!
