Lava Launch Coaster

Lava Launch Coaster

Fall 2009 Toys
Ages: 9 & Up
Manufacturer: KNEX Brands
Price: $74.99
Review:
If your child is an experienced K'NEX builder and can't wait to ride the roller coaster at the theme parks near and far, the Lava Launch may provide just the right combination of thrills and build. The set, which includes more than 1,200 pieces, stands nearly four feet high when assembled. This set is very stable on surfaces and holds up to kid-powered play. The trade-off for stability, however, is a base that can be a bit redundant to build, as much of the coaster design is repeated on each of the four sides. Once finished, however, your child can use the motorized blaster to launch his/her car up the volcano for a thrilling lava flow down the tracks.
