Is the All-American Roller Coaster set from K'NEX worth a purchase? It is a new slim track based set that is not quite yet widely available, but can be found online. It features the iconic American colors with red and white track, and a blue train with white stars. The set retails for $32.97 and features 561 pieces, 18' of track, and a lift motor. The base model is around 2' tall and features a fantasy based layout.

Welcome to the brand new version of SSCoasters! We have combined aspects from every site since 2002 into the best version of the site yet! Most of the site has been completely customized to fit our community. Over four months under construction, with some great features still in development, this site combines and integrates the core that makes SSCoasters great, the model roller coasters, with new social interaction like never before.
It has been a long road to get here, but the aim of this site is to engage you, the visitor, like we never have before. We aim to integrate K'NEX and model creation with real life theme parks, video games, and what you do on a day to day basis to make this a closer community than ever before.
