It comes with a set of parts, a baseplate and a pack of 40 challenges. It is advertised as suitable for ages 6 up. I know I am quite a bit older than that, but many of Think Fun's games such as "Rush Hour"( Rush Hour Logic Game), Laser Maze ( Paul Lamond Laser Maze Game) and Codemaster ( ThinkFun Codemaster Game) maybe aimed a kids but they are fiendish at the higher levels for everyone, whatever their age.
In contrast the puzzles here do not get that tricky. Once you have worked out the maths behind it, most puzzles will take longer to set up than solve. One of the issues is that all the routes are downhill, more or less; there's no rising tracks and so support columns go on in numerical order. All you have to do is figure out how far apart.
The best bit is using it as a construction set to make your own rollercoasters. Once again, they can only go down, but there's lots of routes for you to try and it had me wishing for more parts - especially as these fit together so beautifully.
I think that Think Fun should look at the gameplay again on this product. Introduce some 'up' track as well as down. Consider giving less information about the supports (i.e, don't tell us how many parts in a support). Maybe consider an expansion pack, they do it for Rush Hour (I have two) that would include bigger challenges. Or maybe I should have paid more attention to the age range, for 6 year olds it would be a puzzle, but I think it would be too easy for older kids.

The cards the game provides show you how to BEGIN to set up each rollercoaster, but don't show it completed. That's where the child's logic needs to kick in. Each puzzle card gives you the exact number of pieces that you need to complete each coaster design, and it's up to the "designer" to figure out where the rest of the pieces go to complete the rollercoaster and make it function.
The cards start off from easy and progress to very difficult. With practice, and a bit of my assistance, my five-year old was starting to complete the puzzles. Now, he's even getting the advanced/harder coaster designs without much help from anyone.
All in all, this is a great game for getting kids to think in three dimensions. The intent is to take a two-dimensional "plan" and building a 3-D working model. The reward is being able to take the little rollercoaster car and send it down the track to the finish line. I would definitely recommend this game to children who are interested in architecture and/or engineering, or who like to build things with their hands. Absolutely outstanding toy!
One problem with our set...one piece was deformed and we couldn't do a lot of the projects because of it, but my husband contacted the company and they sent a whole new set of coaster pieces, so we have extras now instead.
Happy with the customer service sending us a new piece for free and some extras, because my son was quite upset when we couldn't use the toy much due to the defective piece until we got the new ones.
