Quick Take: All of these one player games are basically different sorts of puzzle challenges. You find one with a topic that appeals to your child and you're good to go. They are great for a child to do on their own or to work on with a parent or grandparent. This roller coaster version has a pretty high "cool" factor but it also has a lot of pieces, some of which are small, and if you don't place everything very carefully your roller coaster may not work. It's a great game, excellent concept, but it's a one player game that may require adult assistance from time to time.
How to Play: There are 40 cards with varying levels of difficulty and your goal is to build a functional roller coaster based on the requirements of the card.
Variations: The cards have the solutions on the back, these solutions can be used as a helpful hint or two for a child who is stuck on one of the challenges.
