    My 10 year old really enjoyed building this roller coaster that we got for him for Christmas. He was able to complete the entire set without issues, but he did struggle a little with the purple tubing part of the track (it's a very tight fit, but necessary for the track). The roller coaster car runs well on the tracks and its pretty sturdy for being so large. The only thing my son didn't like were the two k'nex people that can ride on the roller coaster. They weren't very appealing to look at so he used a small character from another toy to ride on the coaster instead. Overall, great toy!

    This started out as a great idea, however parental assistance may be required as there are a thousand parts that need to be assembled and your average child may not have the patience! However once the project is complete it is fun trying to get it to work properly. It did work but it needs a firm platform to hold all the pieces in the correct position.

      Comments about K'NEX Thunderbolt Strike Rollercoaster Building Set:

      I love that K'nex is going back to the Original Type roller coasters but I don't like how pricy they can get. like this one. it just has a chain lift, a Curve dive and a loop that is it and it is $100. But I do like how smooth it is. And if you are having trouble getting the car over some places, the move the crossties around to where the tube track is tight. Also if the chain is getting stuck, then take it off and go over it to make sure that both of the hooks are on the next chain correctly. One more thing, if the chain keeps acting up then check if all of the chain segments are facing down.

      Comments about K'NEX Thunderbolt Strike Rollercoaster Building Set:

      I Got this for christmas and I liked it a lot! What I liked the most about this product is the Original style of the coaster. I didn't like that if you Made a small mistake on the cross ties, then the coaster wouldn't go through the entire thing. overall Great Product

      I bought this a few months ago and it can't get over the turn at the end. I took apart the track and it still had that problem.

      By billybob

      Comments about K'NEX Thunderbolt Strike Rollercoaster Building Set:

      I love the bigger size rollercoaster so much more than the smaller versions. This is extremely fun to build and still fun afterwards to make tunnels and stuff if you are like me and have other sets as well. They are also great pieces to add to your collection. I would definitely recommend this product.
