How To: Build your K'NEX Shark Run Roller Coaster

Build your K'NEX Shark Run Roller Coaster

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 two video tutorials will help you to build your K'NEX Shark Run Roller Coaster. Video 1 covers activating the chompin' head and video 2 covers adding the track. These are just some tips in addition to the written instructions provided in the box to help you erect the K'NEX Shark Run Roller Coaster.

General Tips:

In the box, there is a small bag of spacers and trim is included in a larger bag that includes all the connectors and gears.

The orientation of blue and silver metallic connectors that make up the three-dimensional connections is very critical. If a rod or connector is not fitting in properly, make sure that you have the three-dimensional connections around it oriented in the correct direction.
