New KNEX Model Coaster!!!

Monday, August 13, 2001 2:17 PM
I just completed the new KNEX Screamin’ Serpent coaster!!!! If you are a coaster fan and love building your own this is a must! A huge step up from the original KNEX coaster (which is still available), this kit is endorsed by the American Coaster Enthusiasts organization for the realistic operation and design. It utilizes a realistic train of 3 cars which ride the rails by means of road, guide, AND upstop wheels! This means the train is locked to the track (unlike the other one), allowing you to build ANY type of drop, curve, or inversion! The biggest disappointment is the length of track. It is shorter than the original, since this has a diving drop and smaller loop. Plus, it takes half the track for the lift, which in itself is a bit tall for the loop.......it has more than enough speed going through it. But you would not believe the trains!!! The upstops are a tremendous advantage, and you can do anything that you have room for! There is a little too much play between the wheels and the rail, but it never hits anything while on the course. It is quiet, and has so much speed! I will also point out that there are numerous decals and signs which add to the theming. AND if that’s not all, the lift is motorized, and there is a motion activated sound box with lift chain noise and screams as the train drops!!! This is incredibly priced ($70-$80) and if you find it, GRAB IT! It won’t be long before they are impossible to find.

I apologize if this has been posted, but I searched and didn't find anything. :)
