A Closer Look At The LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster (31084)

After last week’s reveal by Amazon France of the latest LEGO Creator sets to watch out for this summer, we finally had a glance of one of the most anticipated LEGO Creator 3-in-1 set around. We first knew that this set is happening since December of last year when we first spotted some preliminary set images of the LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster (31084). This time, Promobricks has just shared our first batch of high-res images for us to look closer, and appreciate this awesome 3-in-1 set around, perhaps even better than the groundbreaking LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor (70922).

Obviously, the main selling point of the set is its roller coaster assembly using LEGO’s latest track pieces. However, LEGO pushes the envelope further by offering it as a 3-in-1 set.  The LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster can be modified to suit your fancy and LEGO has even three particular suggestions on how you can do this. As it is, there are three variant models in which you can build various Pirate themed park rides.

The first and main set is the Pirate Roller Coaster itself that measures 26 inches long and 13 inches wide, which is already considerably large as compared to other Creator sets in the same line. The visual feast and vibrant color scheme of this set is simply superb.

The second variant allows you to build a sort of Pirate Ship Swing using two track pieces, complete with a ticket booth and a shooting gallery. I find it kind of hilarious that LEGO opted to use a cannon for that matter – a bit of an overkill, but still funny.

The final variant which is the smallest of the three is a Pirate Carousel which uses two semi-circular track pieces to make a complete circle. Though the Carousel is relatively small as compared to the Swing, I’m impressed on how designers came up with the mechanism to turn this Pirate ride around. As the image suggest, turning the brown tub piece will also spin the skull-themed carousel.

 

The LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster (31084) comes in at 923 pieces and will retail for 79.99 Euros. Are you excited to pick this up once it comes out in June? Let us know in the comments below.
