We spent Sunday afternoon building and playing with Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster. Based on the response of my entire family, I can say this is an absolutely awesome gift idea! It is pretty impressive that you can build a working motorized roller coaster, while sitting on the living room rug. Seriously. It worked, and worked well!
Why Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster Makes an Absolutely Awesome Gift
#1 Epic Fun
If you want the ride of your life, without getting behind the wheel, Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster Building Set from K’NEX can offer you that. This creepy carnival themed coaster stands over 2 1/2 feet high, and a motorized chain-lift propels the coaster through 14 feet of twisty turny track! That green boxy thing in the image below is the motor, and turning it on activates the chain-lift.
#2 Easy to Build
There are 580 parts to this set, including the special Creepy Carnival theme graphics and stickers for the coaster car. My husband, son, and I put it together in under an hour. Anyone over the age of 9 could easily build this roller coast with the step-by-step instructions, with minimal, if any, issues. One tip – sort the pieces out in to piles first, to make it easier to find everything. 😉
#3 Two Ways to Build
In addition to the building instructions included with Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster, you can download instructions for a second coast on knex.com!
#4 Actually Works
Check out video of the K’NEX Wild Whiplash Roller Coaster in action to see that it actually works! Everyone from my 3 year old twins to my husband thought it was super cool when we turned it on. The twins have asked to keep it in the living room, so I’m guessing it’s going to get a lot of action from everyone. 😀

When K’NEX LPG was founded in 1992 we didn’t set out to become an educational toy company, all we wanted to do was show kids that the only limit to building was the size of your imagination! From the living room to the board room, we are proud to help build the leaders of tomorrow!
