This comes as a shocker to me, i was browsing ebay and stumbled across this any clue on this new coaster.
Looks pretty good, can anyone tell me if this is a total surprise because I never heard of this ride.

It's not new, it was just never advertised very much. It came out awhile after Screamin' Serpent.

My little brother has it. I like it, except it has a one car train.

I thought that it was a Wal-Mart-exclusive product? For a while, the W-M website was the only place you could buy it (not even in W-M stores).

Rob is right, you can buy it off of the wal-mart website for only 29.99. Which is less than what the person paid for on EBAY!. Here is the link: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp?cat=4186&dept=4171&product_id=2233456&path=0%3A4171%3A4186%3A51190

This bad boy is the Walmart release. 30 bucks. I almost got it to be my starter kit.

Call me nuts, but I'd pick up a few just so that I could use the track "rails" for another SS/RR ride, just so that my new ride would have a different color scheme.

Ok, I'll say it..."You're nuts, Rob!" ;) *** Edited 12/1/2003 9:22:28 PM UTC by redman822***

Rob - I bought the first KNEX coaster set for parents so the grandkids would have something to play with when they visited [and uncle Matthew would have something to build for them]. Now that the kids have grown the kit remains unused and is headed for the next garage sale. I'll see if they want to sell it to you instead.

Why doesn't KNEX just sell a huge roller coaster set or different sets that can connect in several different ways to make a huge KNEX roller coaster? And why don't they have loading stations?

They gotta leave something for future versions!
I'm still holding out for a true "inverted" coaster for the next KNex coaster!

I actually am staying away from the RR so I don't have different color schemes. I would hate to have my creation be all kinds of Six Flags colors. :P

Rob, you are an ACE member I see. If you want to see a true inverted go to the nocoastercon in Chicago next month. I think it will be worth your while. This is where we will debut our new model. Look under the thread "realistic working model" on this site.

Ya can be like my teacher and buy the huge K'Nex science exploration kit. However, yeah, it's probably expensive, and I have no idea if it would be compatible with the Soarin' Serpent or Rocket or whatever they're named ;)
