Typhoon Frenzy Review (K'NEX)

What It Is

The Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster is one of the newest roller coaster building sets from K'NEX. It comes with 649 pieces for building a motorized roller coaster with 19 feet of swirling and twirling track. The set comes with one silver coaster car and a motorized chain lift that brings the car up almost three feet before dropping it down the swirling track where it will reach the bottom of the chain lift and go back up for another ride. You can also switch the chain lift to go in reverse, but the car will not go up the swirly track on its own.

Is It Fun?

This building set makes a nice addition to the K'NEX line of roller coasters. Kids who love amusement parks will really enjoy being able to build their own roller coaster that runs just like a real roller coaster, which is really cool for kids to watch.

Who It’s For

The Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster is for ages 9 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Two AA batteries are required but not included.

This took our expert builder two hours to build, and even he found the instructions a little difficult to follow. This is definitely a building set that will take some time and patience.

If you want to use the pieces in this set to build a second model, called Tsunami Surge, you'll need to download those building instructions from the K'NEX website.
