Get ready for the ride of your life with the Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster Building Set from K’NEX! Watch your kids build a working motorized roller coaster!
The kids are so excited about this toy. It might have a permanent home in our living room, since it’s been there for weeks now. I had actually kind of forgotten about K’nex, in this LEGO heavy house of mine. I remember my brother paying with K’nex sets and LOVING them as a kid. So, when I came across this Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster, I thought it might be fun to try with my family.
I’m so glad I did. The kids had an absolute blast building it. What a great activity for siblings to play with and work on together!
They got neighbors in on the action.
They got dad in on the action.
It was really fun to see it come together. When complete, this bad boy stands in at over 2 1/2 feet tall! It has a motorized chain-lift that propels the carnival themed coaster car through 14 feet of twisting track. The step-by-step building instructions were easy to follow. This is perfect for builders that are 9 and up. But, my seven year old was successful and needed very little help. So, it depends on the child. He is really into building things.
He was at it from first thing in the morning. Every free moment he had was dedicated to building this thing. It was amazing! It took us a couple of days to complete it. And, there are even instructions for a SECOND coaster on knex.com! This set is available exclusively at Walmart.
K’NEX building sets allow you to build massive, moving, motorized roller coaster toys, ferris wheels, and more for hours of fun! Check them out. My kids have since added a few more K’NEX sets to their own Christmas lists this year.
If you are stumped on what to get the kids on your list this season, I highly recommend the K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster building set for Christmas this year. In this age digital of screens, it was really fun and refreshing to see my kids play with this imaginative, hands on building set and work together.
K’NEX was founded 25 years ago, as a company that wanted to show kids the only limit to building was the size of their imagination. K’NEX prides itself on connecting science, technology, engineering, arts, and math with imagination. STEMagination can be found in every K’NEX set and with it your building dreams become a fun-powered 3-D reality!
