KNEX Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster Building Set Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I have a really neat building set that I think your boys will love to tinker with from KNEX and it's called the Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster Building Set!
This is an awesome set that will make a roller coaster that is 2.7 feet tall! And the car actually does ride on the rails. You will need 2 AA batteries for that, but it really and truly does work!
•Includes 649 pieces
•Motorized chain lift
•19 feet of track
•Silver coaster car
•Requires 2 "AA" batteries
•Ages 9+  
Bring a wave of fun from the ocean to your living room with the new Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster Building Set from K'NEX! Build with over 640 K'NEX parts & pieces like rods, connectors and track, and add motorized power to send the silver coaster car twisting and turning through over 19 feet of swirling, non-stop action! Plus, download exclusive instructions to build an incredible second model, the Tsunami Surge Coaster! All K'NEX rods and connectors are made in the USA! 
I do have to tell you that it will get a little complicated and my brother in law ended up having to help his 11 year old son put it together but once they got it together, they had a ball playing with it, even my brother in law! They live in a different city than we do and I had hoped to go see them and see the Roller Coaster for myself, but I haven't been feeling well, so we didn't get to go.
They told me to remember to start this on a large flat surface because it will take up some space. Just remember if it's almost 3 feet tall, it will take up some room. But, they said once it was up and running, all the kids wanted to come over and play! So, it was a huge success and I am glad I got him something for this birthday that he could enjoy.  
KNEX has some of the best building sets that are unique and will definitely keep your youngster's mind busy with the setting up and the afterwards in playing with something that he himself built so he would want it to stay around for awhile. My in laws say that he is very protective of this roller coaster and tells the others to watch what they are doing while they are around the set!
Please be aware that there are small parts in this building set and children under 3 should not be allowed near the parts in case of accidental swallowing and getting stuck.
There are quite a few roller coaster sets so if you decide that you want this particular one, remember it is called the Typhoon Frenzy as the others have different names and different looks when you are up close to them.
This is the actual motor that will go at the top of the roller coaster that will help the little white train car go around.  You can buy these online at KNEX or you can get them at Toys ''R'' Us.
