One particular spot for my checklist of LEGO must-haves for this year definitely goes to the LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261). Since the introduction of LEGO’s new track elements included from last year’s LEGO Batman Movie Joker Manor (70922), clamor for a true LEGO roller coaster set has been stronger than ever. With the arrival of the Roller Coaster (10261), and with LEGO even throwing in a newer, optional power function to go along with it, everything seems to be all too perfect.
However, for Dutch LEGO enthusiast 2T Toys, the search for the ultimate LEGO roller coaster isn’t over yet. Raising the bar even higher, they decided not just to build a single LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261) set, but combining all three – yes, three separate sets – into one monster brick-built ride. The result was simply mesmerizing. Watch this.
A quick Google Translate tells us that this ultimate LEGO Roller Coaster ride fares at 100 cm. in length, 55 cm. wide, and 1.5 m. tall. And in minifigure scale, it’s just one cool, extreme ride. Other than the awesome loop which is the central attraction of this MOC, the sheer amount of power available from the new power function motor is also impressive in itself. It goes to show that it is capable of bringing the coasters even up to the height of 1.5 meters. If only 2T Toys can bring the camera to capture the entire moment from when the coaster leaves the platform, gradually goes for the drop, towards the loop, and then back to the station. Needless to say, it is still a sight to behold.
The LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261) is now available in-store and online at shop.LEGO.com.
