Win the K’NEX Thunderbolt Strike Roller Coaster ($120 value) – Ends 12/10

K'NEX Thunderbolt Strike

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I’m really not a fan of roller coasters. Never have been and probably never will. Thankfully my kids haven’t been too crazy into them… yet. They are starting to enjoy some of the more basic ones when they’re at an amusement park with their cousins. But they haven’t been clamoring for me or Allie to take them on any wild rides lately. Whew.

I do, however, love building roller coasters! I have to hand it to KNEX, these guys know how to seriously have a good time. I’ve put together a number of KNEX roller coasters before and had such a blast putting them together with my kids and then just turning the motor on and watching the coaster car slowly rise to the top before beginning its rapid fall! It’s like one of those perpetual motion machines you can stare at for hours. And hours. And hours…

Anyways, my next big conquest from K’NEX is a doozy. Jason, Ryan and I have put together a few big coasters before but never anything that comes close to the Thunderbolt Strike Roller Coaster Building Set!

KNEX Giveaway

K’NEX sent us a set to put together, so I’m just waiting for a good few days free to work on it with the boys. But in the meantime, K’NEX is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy’s Busy, Go Ask Daddy! Yes, one of my lucky readers will get a Thunderbolt Striker Roller Coaster Building Set of their own!

  1. One at disney world… I think called Expedition? … it was a an icy theme and went back and forth on track changes which I thought was really interesting.

  2. Before they tore down AstroWorld in Houston, they had a roller coaster called The Texas Cyclone and it was the biggest at the time anywhere!!

  3. I love Roller Coasters in general but my most recent favorite is the Sesame Street one at Busch Gardens VA because it was my sons first roller coaster ever! Favorite big kid roller coaster is definitely the Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point followed by the Griffin at Busch Gardens VA =)

  4. I am not a brave roller coaster rider, so my favorite coaster is the Blazin’ Buckaroo, family coaster at Elitch Gardens in Colorado.

  5. I love the scream machine at Six Flags. I also like the K’NEX Thrill Rides Son of Serpent Coaster! Not real sure if you were asking about real roller coasters ot other K’NEX so I did both 🙂

  6. The Amazing 8 Coaster looks like a lot of fun to build too. I like the wooden coasters at Knoebels in Elysburg, PA. The Boomerang and The Superman at Darien Lake are fun too. Thanks!

  7. It’s been a couple years since I have been on one but one of my all time favorites is Anaconda at Kings Dominion, it was the first coaster I got on that I liked.

  8. I LOVE rollercoasters!! Was just at six flags last night for their Holiday in the Park!! I love the Titan and the Mr.Freeze the most!!!

  9. Since I became a parent, I won’t ride coasters anymore. Maybe it has to do with a safety instinct. As a kid, I loved Space Mountain at WDW!

  10. The Corkscrew is the ONLY roller coaster (so far) that I will go on. I am terrified of most. Also the Iron Dragon I believe. Both from Cedar Point.

  11. I do not have a favorite roller coaster, I have never been on one. No theme parks around here. The Disney ones look pretty cool though.

  12. A local theme park has a wooden roller coaster. I love it. It’s called the comet. It’s been a few years since I went on it not sure I would feel the same way about it. But the last time I rode it I LOVED it.

  13. We used to go to Six Flags in Dallas all the time when I was a kid–the Fiesta Texas in San Antonio is closer to the family now. Both those parks have some awesome rides. For me, it’s more fun to build one than to ride 🙂

  14. I rode one many years ago called the texas twister,,it just about twisted my guts out,,,I told my little girl,,I made that 2 experiences,,my first an my last for this ride,,that was over 20 yrs ago,,,lol,,,this grandma will still climb on a small one with the grandkids but I leave the big ones to their parents

  15. I am not really fond of roller coasters. I am actually really afraid of roller coasters. I live a life full of roller coasters, so I don’t actually need to ride one for reals. But if I had o pick one, it would be the Scream Machine at Six Flags Over Georgia. That is where I found out that I really don’t like roller coasters at all.
