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!
Thunderbolt Strike Roller Coaster
Fasten your seatbelts! The Thunderbolt Strike coaster set includes over 800 fan-requested, American made, classic K’NEX rods, connectors, cross-ties, and tube-track for lightning striking fun. Set also includes a motor, vertical chain lift, 2 cars, 2 fully articulated K’NEXmen figures and comes packaged in an iconic K’NEX suitcase. Suggested retail price $119.99. Ages 9+. Available now on knex.com, HomeDepot.com, Toysrus.com, Amazon.com, and at toy retailers nationwide.
This sucker is over 3 feet tall and 5 feet long! There’s over 800 pieces! And it includes two cars to give even more of your K’NEXmen figures a real scare!
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!
Talk about a great Christmas present, right? And no, assembly by yours truly is not included in this prize!
