I gave the K'NEX Supernova Blast Roller Coaster Building Set to my 9 year old grandson for Christmas. Although some of the instructions and pictures were not clear, we enjoyed assembling the structure together and he likes to play with it. Sometimes the power launcher does not send the car to the top of the structure, but most of the time it works.  I enjoy seeing the thrill in my grandson's eyes when he plays with it.

What's the point in having track that glows in the dark, if the car doesn't? For our son and grandson, the fun is in watching the car travel over the coaster. They can only see where the car really is in the dark by where they can't see track as the car travels over it! I went ahead and purchased glow in the dark paint and painted the car so they could enjoy the glow in the dark feature! As far as the red power pack, it really doesn't work well enough for this coaster. It either needs to be moved or you have to change the track up to allow the car to travel around the entire track. I just haven't been able to figure out where to move it to make it work right. We've tried moving it a couple times, but it still doesn't work quite right. I think we prefer the other, green type of motor and may give it a try to change over the power pack to one from another coaster to see if that would work better. Like usual, the manual to put the coaster is mostly drawings with very few actual written directions. We accidentally read the directions wrong and put the wrong pieces in the wrong place a couple times and had to go back and find the places we did it since we were short pieces several steps later. Then, we had to figure out the right pieces and replace them so the correct pieces were where they were supposed to be. In some of the pages, they show a picture of the pieces with the number used, but that was just the orange rods. Maybe if they would do that with the connectors, we would be able to put them in the right place the first time! Usually, our mistakes are whether we're supposed to use gray or blue connectors and that's where we have to go back and correct our mistake. I've found it's a lot easier to put together the coaster if I download the directions, so we can enlarge them and make them easier to see which pieces we are supposed to use. Our son prefers to use the paper manual though so he can try to put the coaster together on his own. The pictures in the manual are too small for me to make out some of the pieces though, so I ended up downloading them to find the right pieces to use.

Comments about K'NEX Supernova Blast Roller Coaster Building Set:

Not happy with product. I want the basic set that used to come with plans for several buildings. I dont want house kits.They are too expensive and there aren't enough of the longer logs.

    Comments about K'NEX Supernova Blast Roller Coaster Building Set:

    This product looks great, but the hours invested for building to watch the poor performance is a huge disappointment. We bought this for our 9yr old, it took 5 hours to put together. The coaster does not make it up the track more than 2 times in a row. Extremely disappointing, returning the product back to store.

    Comments about K'NEX Supernova Blast Roller Coaster Building Set:

    Fun rollercoaster but it was a little hard to snap together.It took about two hours to put together but that is half the fun. It was on sale so I would say it was worth the price I paid. May not pay full price for it though.

          After spending an entire morning putting together, the motor to push the car around the track died after 5 minutes. We changed batteries, and didn't help
