The K'NEX Thrill Rides Lunar Launch Roller Coaster is a fun building set for kids that takes inspiration from the amusement park. The construction set includes 607 K'NEX pieces, which may be used to assemble a towering toy ride that stands about four feet tall. Once completed, the Lunar Launch Roller Coaster resembles a rocket ship and features a launcher mechanism that can be stepped on to send the coaster cars hurling around the toy's assembled track.
The Thrill Rides line from K'NEX also includes building sets for a variety of other roller coasters and ferris wheels to create a complete amusement park set. All of these toys help to foster in kids what K'NEX calls "STEAMagination"—a combination of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math, plus curiosity and creativity.
