K’NEX Brands, the US construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love ®, is pleased to introduce four new roller coasters to its hugely popular Thrill Ride line of building sets. Sure to spark creativity, these K’NEX coaster building sets offer explosive fun for builders ages 9+, and include American made rods and connectors.

K’NEX Thrill Ride building sets have been a favorite among fans since the line was introduced in 1992 and appeal to builders of all ages. K’NEX has dominated this part of the market for over 20 years by continuing to offer the most exciting designs and features in roller coaster building sets, including glow-in-the-dark track which is being featured for the first time in the 2013 line.

Phoenix Fury Coaster™ Building Set
Spiral and soar through over 20 feet of expansive track with the Phoenix Fury Coaster from K'NEX. With over 620 pieces, including track, a roller coaster car, American made K'NEX rods and connectors, and the cool motorized chain lift, you can build an authentic-style roller coaster that spans over 3.5 feet in length. Color coded instructions help you build this monstrous creation, and alternate model instructions are available for download on knex.com. Suggested retail price $49.99. Ages 9+. Available now.

Supernova Blast Coaster™ Building Set
Build a glow-in-the-dark, gravity defying, spiraling roller coaster with blasting-motor performance.

Including over 800 K’NEX pieces and a special motorized blaster that launches the coaster car into its exciting journey around the track, the set also features a building idea for a second coaster model. Suggested retail price $69.99. Ages 9+. Available Now.

In response to last year’s wildly successful launch of the Son of Serpent Coaster™ building set, the first coaster in 10 years to be made up entirely of all classic rods and connectors, K’NEX is thrilled to expand its roller coaster line with 2 new exciting, all-classic coasters.
