    About this item

    Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
    This K'NEX building set provides kids with the resources to construct a colorful and exciting space-themed roller coaster. It contains 434 pieces and comprehensive instructions, so they can build it themselves, with their parents or with friends. When the Shooter Coaster kids' building set is put together, it stands over 3' tall and features multiple loops and turns for the coaster car to travel along. A motor makes the roller coaster work and keeps the car moving. It runs along the twisted path, and then comes back to the beginning to do it again. Other K'NEX toys and building sets, such as the Amazin' 8 Coaster and the SuperSonic Swirl (sold separately) can be connected to this set, letting kids set up a miniature working amusement park in their own home. This set is recommended for children ages 7 years or older.

    • A. More versatile, and less "gimmicky" in that Legos have become an isolated "build it to specs" project that you follow simple and basic instructions. K'nex is more versatile, allows for greater diversity in imagination, and is also priced more appropriately. When tying to create a project in Legos, I faced over $200 in pieces. K'nex can accomplish similar objectives at 1/10 the cost.

    • A. Instructions are not as detailed/step by step. In general I think this is harder, especially figuring out how to do the track.

    • A. Lego would be better choice for age indicated on box. Stronger bulkier pieces for little fingers. K-Nex product is thin rods and small pieces and instruction not printed out mainly pictures to follow to construct. Difficult for 7 year old.

    • A. We don't have this particular set, but my 6 year old loves his K-nex just as much as his LEGOS. He is able to follow the directions and build amazing things with them.

    With no experience of K'nex toys/pieces, I was able to decipher the instructions (with the help of Garrett, my 7 year old son) and put the entire 2 roller coasters together: Amazin 8 and Starshooter It was not difficult, provided you are willing to comprise after building the entire unit and following verbatim the instruction, and then resolving to admit to use some airplane glue. See video for final results, ... stable and not falling apart, as some reviews reference. Ours has been in operation daily for an average of 20 minutes each day, and still does not rattle nor has any piece come lose.

    The K'NEX Star Shooter is pretty much what I was looking for since my grandson is crazy about building things. The product is very nice, and it constructed the way it was supposed to, and was everything I expected and hoped for in that price range. However, the packaging was horrible. I have to ship my toys to them, and I had to reinforce the box which made it look like a used toy. That was very disappointing. The cardboard was too thin, and was smushed when I got the item from Walmart. I was able to reinforce the box, but again, it was not very esthetically feasible. Overall, however, I was very satisfied with the product.

    Took an adult and a 6 and 7 year old about 2.5 hours to do it (never dealt with roller coaster before). Most of the stuff done by the adult but kids also could do some stuff. They really enjoyed the assembled product though. It's kind of flimsy and needs to be re-adjusted after a few runs, but on th eflip side, makes kids pay attention to detail. One of the connectors was malformed. Overall though lots of fun and for the rock bottom price we paid here, can't beat it.

    I got this set a while ago, and I am pleased with the final product. I wasn't 100% sure about my purchase after a bad experience with a different roller coaster set, but this time around, I am pleased. This is one of those sets where you are at hard work putting the pieces in place to give life to the set, and you feel rewarded with the final product. The instructions were only decent: placing the track onto the rocket-ship base were not very clear. This also made the building difficult. The K'Nex building system has always contained high-quality pieces, and this set was no different. The motor works pitch-perfect and the coaster car is in ship-shape, nothing out of place here. The retail price is exceptionally good, so besides the building process and the confusing structure, you'll have one heck of a time after this bad boy is complete,

    Building this set was fairly easy, but an adult is definitely required for younger kids.  I know for my boys they don't have the patience or mentality necessarily to follow each step, but then again it also makes for some great parent-bonding with kids putting this together!  Some of the pieces are small and you really have to snap to push the pieces in for some spots.  You also could screw up the whole final creation if you mess up a step early on, so it is especially important to be diligent with the steps.  We actually missed a step early on and had to take some pieces apart to get it in.  Oh and the sets do require batteries because they actually do move!  Once together together I feel like it was held together tightly and not going anywhere.  The instructions are all visual, no words just pictures to show each step.  The sets worked like they should and it was not only fun to build them but then to enjoy the action of the ride afterwards!  My boys are literally amazed watching their creations go!  These sets are great whether you just have one or you have them all.  My boys can't wait to have a whole K'NEX theme park going on in the corner of our basement!

    My 9 year old loves rollercoasters. This was a perfect project for him. He did need a little help with the placement of the track otherwise he did it on his own.

    Our grandson likes to make things with KNEX kits. It challenges his mind and creative ability to make other projects with the parts he has.
