What It Is
Roller coasters have been a big part of K'NEX for the past 20 years, and the latest version, the Phoenix Fury Coaster, is a 624-piece set that creates a real working roller coaster that measures almost four feet wide and 2.5 feet tall. Set the gold car on the track and watch it ascend to the top. Then the excitement comes as the car drops and goes through hair-raising twists and turns until it reaches the bottom and starts all over again.
Why It’s Fun
For kids who like thrill rides and construction toys, the Phoenix Fury Coaster building set delivers both. Kids will like building a roller coaster just like the ones they enjoy riding at amusement parks. But building is only part of the fun. Once complete, turn it on and the Phoenix Fury Coaster runs just like a real roller coaster. This set is great for established K'NEX fans or newcomers to this building system.
Who It’s For
The Phoenix Fury Coaster is for ages 9 and up. This will appeal most to kids who are fans of the K'NEX building system.
What To Be Aware Of
This took our expert builder between three and four hours to build. The directions are okay. You can follow the pictures, but at times they were a little unclear, and we had to improvise. Still, it all fit together in the end.
Two AA batteries are required but not included.
