K'nex Rippen Rocket Out Early?

Wednesday, June 18, 2003 7:11 AM
If you check the Wal-Mart website it says that they have the K'nex Rippen Rocket but its out of stock. What is the date its supposed to come out??

I heard either July or August so I bet you might still have to wait a month or 2

Wal-Mart is probably trying to get some advance orders in, or gauge how popular the item will be when it arrives.

Can anyone tell me about the new K'nex Rippen Rocket coaster coming out, because I didn't even know that another one was coming out.

Its pretty much what it says on the walmart site, its a knex launched coaster.

Hey this looks like fun and for once it also has a very nice price tag to go with it. I look forward to seeing the massive coasters I know some of you will build with this set.

It looks like it uses the same "track system" as the Screamin' Serpent, but it will launch individual cars instead of complete trains.

The Rippin Rocket will not come out until August. Also, I went to Wal-mart today and they did not have any, which did not surprise me,.

But I am really looking forward to this new knex coaster coming out because as of now I have 7 Screamin Serpent coasters and plan on getting atleast 2 Rippin Rocket coasters!


If you would like to check out some of the models I have made with my 7 Screamin Serpent sets then check out my website! My favorite model that I have made with my 7 sets is Gemini! So check it out at the following site!

Sorry to bring back an old topic, but on walmart.com they now have the Rippin Rocket in stock, but I went to walmart, target, and toys r us and none of the stored had any! So do any of you know why the website has them but not in store, or are they probably being shipped there now? Thanks

Is it just me, or is it a little over-priced?

Have you seen how big one of these things is? Heck, I had a problem fitting my one screaming serpent kit somewhere in my condo, let alone two sets and the new one is about the same size if not bigger. Thats lots of mass produced plastic parts which need to be sorted, packaged, and verified so that all the parts are accounted for before it goes out the door. Long story short, I think it is a freakin bargin considering how much other toys are now a days and for all of what you are getting.

I've got it. it's a giant, that's for sure. Construction toys are always expensive, but few occupy as much space as this one, especially in the vertical sense.

Well I have 9 knex roller coaster sets, two of the original on and 7 screamin serpents, and hopefully 2 rippin rockets. I have saved my money from graduation to spend on coaster stuff for my room such as shot glasses, post cards, on ride photos, screamin serpents, shirts ect.

But if any of you are interested this summer I build a knex coaster called Oasis and I now have it in my room diplayed on a shelf with lighting and all. Here is a link to my site so you can see all my models including my personal favorites: Gemini and Oasis.
