Which car will win? Change up the design of the track to see if you can get different results – a different car will win each time depending on how YOU decide to build the roller coaster.

I gave one of the 3 Kinex sets I had purchased for Christmas to my son after he received a perfect report card.... as a gift. I thought carefully about the decision because I already have all of my shopping done for Christmas...I chose the Kinex in hopes that it would spark his imagination & I was pleasantly pleased! He played with it all night and is asking everyone to give him more for Christmas so he can build bigger things!

I bought this toy for my 8 year old son. He built it by himself in just two afternoons. He loves playing with it, and it becomes the center of attention when his friends are visiting. After playing with it for many hours, the tracks needed to be adjusted a little, and he enjoyed doing it. It's part of the educational experience. Long story short: This is an awesome toy for a curious boy and I'm glad I purchased it. Hope this helps.

My 12 year old daughter was home sick from school for 3 days and put the whole thing together by herself. Yes, she made mistakes and had to figure out what was wrong but now she wants to build buildings and feels she can do it after completing this. It is rather big so where to store it is a problem as we dont have alot of space. I would buy other toys from this company again.

Santa should have checked the age on the box before he ordered! Santa brought this for my 6yr. son who has done many a Lego designs on his own from the manuals provided. He did a medium Lego Star Wars star destroyer by himself in 3 hours....Daddy started this K'nex set at 9am Xmas morning with son watching and helping as much as he could...after first hr. he lost interest entirely...{the lure of other Xmas toys called him.} 12noon... Daddy was putting the plastic chains used to pull the cars up together. Once the chains were on and the cars were going the boy loved it. The manual is about 100 pages long. There are very few and, not the most common, extra pieces. Other than it's really made for older children, the boy enjoys it. Can't say that for Daddy, though...LOL.

My son is always getting into things and taking them apart. This construction set has kept him busy for a little while now. He first made the giant roller coaster set but then also made some smaller things out of the rods. He really likes taking them apart and putting them back together and the toys can withstand his rough handling of some of the items. They are virtually indestructible.

As mentioned by others, this is quite a project - even for adults. I could probably put it together in a half day, but it took my 7-year-old probably 15 hours. But, that's most of the fun.

The instructions are very dense and often don't leave things 100% clear (contrasted with Lego Technics kits, which are always clear and understandable). Most annoying, though, is that we had to make a few small mods when we were done to get it to work even moderately well. The chain still jumps track, sometimes, and the car gets stuck causing chain to stop and the motor to grind gears.

Pretty fun, though, and not bad for the price.

What the box leaves off on the description is you need: patience, lots of time, and lots of room for all the parts. The average 9 year old will have a little trouble putting it ALL together. It will require parental help if your child is young. I wouldn't recommend it for a child younger than 10 and that might be stretching it.

My six year old son saw the K'NEX DoubleShot Roller Coaster at the store one day and fell in love. It was the only thing he asked Santa for at Christmas. Santa, wanting to make the kid happy and apparently not paying very close attention, ordered the gift and delivered it on Christmas Eve (of course Santa shops at Amazon.com). The six year old was delighted to find the exact gift under the Christmas tree. Saving his own sanity, Santa had decided not to set up the gift and left it in the box. Setting it up is most of the fun.

Imagine my surprise when I saw that the gift is for children ages 9+ and includes over 1100 pieces. Ha! Good thing my six year old son has a ten year old brother who spent most of his Christmas day setting up the roller coaster. After eight hours he had finished one of the two roller coasters. We'll finish the other one--some day. It is pretty cool and the entire family has enjoyed watching it go.

This is not an appropriate gift for a six year old. It clearly says so on the box. However, my ten year old very much enjoyed putting together the intricate project. And as an additional benefit it was hours before I heard him say he was bored. My brother and his son have one and they work on it together for an hour at a time on Sunday afternoons.

It is an exceptional toy for teaching of construction and following intricate instructions.
