The Thunderbolt Strike Roller Coaster was the set we really were excited about creating. But due to some serious time constraints this holiday season we haven’t been able to find the time to put this monster together. However, you can be sure over winter break, this set will be completed and we are actually really looking forward to it. To appease the kids and squeeze in some family time we were able to start on our smaller amusement park sets of the series.
K’NEX Building Sets: Amusement Park Series Assortment- #13408, #13409, #13410
Collect & build 3 space themed rides with the new Amusement Park Series assortment. Choose from the Star Shooter Coaster, Amazin’ 8 Coaster, or the Super Sonic Swirl! All three rides are motorized for exciting realistic performance. Each amusement park ride comes with over 400 parts including made in the USA rods & connectors. Collect & build them all and create your own amusement park—right in your living room! Each sold separately.
I admit and I’m sure my kids would too, as many K’NEX Sets as we’ve built in the past we might have been just slightly intimidated by the Amusement Park series. But to our surprise, set up was fairly simple and even a lot of fun.
These were sets, however, that needed the time and attention of both child and adult. The pieces in the sets are small and the design is quite intricate, if you mess up in the beginning stages of construction you’ll have to start back at the drawing board. So for patience and guidance, my children benefited from having my help and I benefited from some quality time with them. And like I said, we actually had a lot of fun seeing how it would all turn out!
Buy It: These sets can be purchased for the SRP of $29.99; Available now on knex.com, Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com and at toy retailers nationwide.
