The tiny, plastic chain links just had too much friction to be practical.

I would most recommend this for an older child that is very familiar with K'Nex and would like to up the challenge and add to their connection.

They did say it took a long time to put together (not a bad thing...keeps them occupied!

My kids love building toys, and we have committed our family to three main series: Lego, Duplo, and K'Nex. We have huge boxes of assorted parts and also sets that we have purchased, and all of my kids enjoy putting together the sets. We especially like the K'Nex educational sets for building gears, levers, and other cool lessons. With that, I decided that the K'Nex Star Shooter coaster, featuring over 400 K'Nex parts, would be a blast to build. I was a little surprised by what we got, but happy with the result.

First, most of the K'Nex included are not the standard K'Nex, but are instead mini-K'Nex. This means that if you lose or break a piece, you likely don't have a ready replacement sitting in your box of assorted K'Nex. The only standard size K'Nex are the pieces of the motor and the opposing gear. The whole roller coaster structure is made of mini parts which don't lock quite as strongly as their large counterparts. While the overall effect is cool after it is built, we were surprised that most of the parts were miniature. The structure itself, once built, is about 20"x20" on the ground and about 41" tall. There is a K'Nex motor that allows you to thread a standard-size K'Nex rod through and it will turn it forwards or backwards. There's no real reason to run the coaster backwards, but the motor is generic. That's a nice feature because my kids have other plans for the motor when they are done with this toy.

While the box says "ages 7 and up", pair of kids above the age of 7 needed some help in assembling the track itself. The structure and the motor mount went together fine, but the track is a little tricky if you haven't built a K'Nex coaster before. Once they saw how it went together, it made sense, but it's not clear at first.

My 11-year-old son loves the K'NEX sets and has for the past few years. He is an active boy who finds it hard to concentrate on things like homework and chapter books, but these K'NEX sets can capture his attention for hours at a time. In the past, he has put together several K'NEX sets. After his visiting Cedar Point for his first time this summer, he had a renewed interest in the roller coasters.

As with some of the K'NEX sets, some of the pieces were a little tricky to put together. My son has gotten better - and more patient - at this over time. However, with this particular set, he had more problems than usual. As he was building one portion of the coaster, another portion would come apart. Once the coaster was fully assembled, the chain rubbed at the top of the lift. This caused the motor to jam and pieces to pop out on occasion. (He insisted he followed the instructions exactly.) After a fair amount of "tweaking," he was able to get the coaster to perform better. So, although we do recommend K'NEX roller coasters in general, we do not recommend this particular K'NEX coaster due to these problems.

We have tons of K'NEX sets and are really big fans of K'NEX education kits. We have a STEM based homeschool and really understand the power these "toys" possess in teaching kids about physics. I say this because my experience with and love of K'NEX might be unfairly biasing my review of this particular set.

First is the use of the mini pieces as opposed to the more standard pieces. Mini pieces allow you to do a bit more intricate design, but they also require more pieces and more things to go wrong. With the lower age limit being 7, having fewer things to go wrong when building is best. The second issue is related to the first. For this coaster to work properly, it must be properly balanced and aligned - everything needs to be right. Again, with that lower age limit, aligning a looping coaster just right can be a bit tricky.

Now, if you get it all just right, the coaster works well - if everything stays just right. However, if the alignment gets off you are going to have some problems with your coaster running the course properly. I am not quite sure if it is the design of this kit or the directions that is causing us to have a hard time with this kit. We have worked with no less than 5 other kids and never had problems.

So, while this isn't a "bad" kit, it definitely isn't a starter kit. I would most recommend this for an older child that is very familiar with K'Nex and would like to up the challenge and add to their connection. A younger or newer child might have a bit too much frustration with this particular kit. So, K'Next gets two thumbs up from me while this kit gets a "okay for the right audience".

My engineering-loving seven year old took this box with excitement and 8 hours later, he had a really cool coaster. He put the whole thing together himself, and needed only a little help at the very end to correctly drape the geared track so the cars could be ferried back up to the top. It kept his interest all day while he put it together as one long focussed marathon project, and his frustration level was low. There were a few times when he misplaced pieces but other than that it was very straightforward for him to assemble. I think this is his fourth K'Nex project, so he does have some experience. The completed coaster was so cool that 5 of us stood around grinning like idiots watching the car go around and around. The preschool-aged sister loved watching it! It's not overly huge in terms of floor space; it's mostly vertical--I appreciate that because we only have so much room for these things! My son did comment that his thumbs were sore after his day of K'Nex assembly. We pulled another car out of a different coaster set and had fun watching the two of them go--the blue was a little faster, and we had a good discussion of friction after we observed that. I think it's a fantastic product with clear instructions and appropriately aged, although kids vary, so use your own judgment.
