How To: Build your K'NEX Pirate Ship Park

Build your K'NEX Pirate Ship Park

K'NEX is one of the most popular construction toys on the market, right next to Lincoln Logs and LEGOs, but what makes K'NEX stand out is the fact that children can build mechanically derived toys. Instead of blocks or little logs, kids use interconnecting plastic rods and connectors, which give them tons of contraptions to build and play with. Today, K NEX has even more possibilities with wheels, pulleys, panels and flexi-rods to make amusement park roller coasters, airplanes, animals, bikes, cars, model buildings, transportation and various other constructed toys. K'NEX is great for girls and boys, the hobby enthusiast or the kid at heart.

These three video tutorials will help you to build your K'NEX Pirate Ship Park. Video 1 covers getting the motor up to speed, video 2 covers getting your model to loop and video 3 covers the sound module. These are just some tips in addition to the written instructions provided in the box to help you erect the K'NEX Pirate Ship Park.

General Tips:

The blue rods fit through the holes along the bottom of the ship. Do not put them in the holes near the seats.

Be sure to install the black sound module exactly as indicated and with the activation button facing in toward the center of the ride. When your Pirate Ship makes a complete loop the triangular shaped portion of the orange cam will hit the black button on the sound module activating the sound.
