      My son and I had so much fun assembling this coaster. It was our first knex set, as he has always been a lego kid. Assembly wasn't too difficult; however, the instructions were often hard to follow. They are picture instructions, but some of the pieces are small and badly represented in the instructions, probably more experience with knex construction sets would help with that problem. Overall, the set was relatively easy to put together and runs great, though it would be improved with the ability to put passengers in the coaster--guess we'll have to buy the more expensive set for that though. It is a bit flimsy, multiple connections break when we move it around and when little sister tries to play with it. The whole thing hasn't completely failed though, only minor repairs are needed.

      I purchased this set a few months ago to construct with my 9 year-old niece and 9.5 year-old nephew. It took us about two hours to construct the frame of the coaster. However, the tracks were a different story altogether. It reminded me of my Math books in elementary school- the more difficult the math problem, the less likely there would be examples on how to solve the problem. First, on Page 14 of the instruction book, Step 10, there is a "Y"-shaped piece shown, and there is no way to determine what, or how it connects to anything else. It is just floating out there. Second, the back section of track does not lay flush against the back or top of the frame, as in the illustrations. It bows out and frequently separates from the connectors. And lastly, in the instructions for the front loops, it is difficult to determine what connects where. It would have been helpful if the critical connections for the loops had been super-magnified in bold colors like on the front of the box. Our initial excitement about this project has turned to frustration and disappointment.

      WRONG DIRECTIONS!

      Comments about K'NEX Amusement Park Series - Amazin' 8 Roller Coaster:

      My son got this for a birthday gift and it came with the wrong directions! We were able to find the correct directions on the website but had to print off 32 pages in color to complete the project! Very disappointed.

      My son really enjoyed building this roller coaster. First K'Nex toy he has owned and he would love to own more. He is 10 years old and thinks to build it by yourself without a parent helping you, you need to be at least this age.

          A requested gift for my grandson, he loves this. I had originally years ago purchased for his uncle and he handed his down to him now my grandson is into KNex. Great way for him to play for hours. He had no problem building or assembling as my son sat with him, he got back into KNex. I purchased two sets. My grandson already hinting for another KNex set.

          This was a great project, and I had a lot of fun while building this roller coaster. The instructions were clear and so was the estimated time listed. I had a great time with it, and the end product is just as show in the video.

          Fun set once it is together!

          Comments about K'NEX Amusement Park Series - Amazin' 8 Roller Coaster:

          My 7 year old son received this as a gift. He immediately wanted to put it together. He and dad worked together and it went well, until it came time for the "track chain" which seemed to be very confusing in the directions and very touchy once we got it working. It seems it is temperamental in working, when it does...it is awesome and fun to watch. Great lessons in constructing and watching how it all works...just wish it worked more consistently.

          Comments about K'NEX Amusement Park Series - Amazin' 8 Roller Coaster:

          I got this for my son and his friend. They both said they loved it. It "was so fun" they said. They didn't need any help making the set and showed the final product to the parents, we were all amazed at what they were able to build.  Now they want more K'nex and I think we are running out of room to put them in our toy room. Ever since I was around 6 years old, I loved K'nex. However, I needed help building sets because it was too hard for me. But now that I am older, I am able to make them without any help.

          The best Christmas present

          By laclay

          from TX

          Comments about K'NEX Amusement Park Series - Amazin' 8 Roller Coaster:

          I bought this coaster for my 4 yr. old grandson for Christmas. My son set it up easily and it still on my dining room table to this day. My grandson plays with it everyday. The coaster is for ages 7 and up which sounds about right. My grandson has man-handled this coaster-putting things on the track, stopping it with his hands..... and it hasn't fallen to pieces so it's pretty sturdy. My teen sons and their friends play with it too. It was a great Christmas present.
