Lunar Launch Roller Coaster Building Set Review (K'NEX)

Lunar Launch Roller Coaster Building Set
What It Is

Have an out-of-this-world construction experience with the K'NEX Thrill Rides Lunar Launch Roller Coaster Building Set. It comes with 607 pieces for building a looping roller coaster that stands 44 inches tall and is powered by air. All you do to send the rocket-style coaster car around the track is stomp on the stomp launcher with your foot. Follow the step-by-step color-coded instructions to build the roller coaster using K'NEX rods, connectors, and track, plus planet and outer space decoration, and then stomp on the launcher to send the coaster car around and around over and over again.

Plus, there is an additional build that also uses the stomp launcher to launch the coaster car, and instructions for that can be found on the K'NEX website.

Is It Fun?

For kids who like to ride roller coasters, building one that really works will be a lot of fun. This kid-powered one has a neat look that will appeal to space buffs, and kids will like launching the coaster car over and over again. Plus, it's a two-in-one set that will engage kids in even more fun construction play.

Who It’s For

The Lunar Launch Roller Coaster Building Set is for ages 9 to 14. Kids who like building with K'NEX will like adding this cool-looking roller coaster set to their collections.

What To Be Aware Of

It took us one hour and 45 minutes to assemble, and the instructions were easy to follow. 

There is also a second way to build, and instructions for that build can be found online at

It does take some force to use the stomp launcher, and it's going to work best if you're wearing proper footwear.
