Knex Corkscrew Coaster
( KNEX $22 Score: )

Scaled down to 337 pieces, the Corkscrew Roller Coaster not only takes up less space, it takes less time to build but is a satisfying motorized setting when it is complete. One of three new Amusement Park sets that are more realistic in size and scope for young builders. In previous years the huge five-foot tall Knex models with 2,000+ pieces required a significant amount of time and space. For most builders the new smaller model that stands a foot and a half tall when complete will be more do-able. That said, this is still a parent-child project for the suggested age on the box. We note that some builders had problems keeping this together, but our testers say if you follow the directions and fasten them properly the product stays together without any problems. For a more upright look, there is a Vertical Viper Coaster, with 318 pieces that stands a little more than a foot and a half tall, and uses the same scaled down size pieces. Takes 2 AA batteries that are not included. Labeled for 7+.
