K'nex is coming out with a new coaster this July. It has boosters with a thrustair type hill followed with a loop. I don't remember the name of it, but I saw it one ABC news around 5/4 a.m. eastern time. Did anyone else see this?

Mine too colincsl, here's what you do...Ask for the coaster, but tell them that it's not out yet, so you'd like a "certificate" for the coaster that would entitle you one or two or whatever number you want of the set and, when it comes out, return the certificate to the giver and they will get you the coaster. That's how RCT2 worked for me.
Warning: I do not think like the average person. My remarks have plenty of thought behind them. Take it for what it's worth, if you disagree, please, feel free to express it, but don't put me down because of it.

Could you see if it looked compattible with the Screamin Serpent track?

The only known Photos of the New KNEX set that I've seen are at http://www.bgtguide.com/~sscoasters/knex2003coaster/RRMain.htm
. It looks like it uses a single car train and it has 2 launchers. I also like the fact that it is 5 feet high and has more track than the Screaming Serpent does. For now you should use a gaint rubber band to build launch coasters or mix Six Flags Cool Coaster Track with Knex.
BTW I found a KNEX Coaster Set that was never released in the USA. It is called Storm Mountain and it can be seen at http://www.knex.nl/FamilyFun/StormMountain.html. As of right now KNEX does not plan to release this set the USA.
