10261 - Roller Coaster

Recommended Posts


The amount of hours I spent (wasted) sitting there playing RCT or SimCity is incalculable. Before kids, I remember my wife and I coming home work, going into our office, sitting down on our two computers and building away for 5+ hours at a time.

Before we had kids my wife and I spent numerous hours playing Diablo II together on our LAN. Working together to kick the crap out of the boss-monsters we encountered. Ah, those were the days... :P

Impressive set.

Sure but all of those white round 2x2 pieces that make up a large portion of the set could easily be replaced by less expensive stanchion type pieces or technic beams.  It wouldn't look as nice but it would probably drop the price some.  I'm not sure I see the value if this retails for $350.  And if there's any set that you'll want to add power functions to it's this one so figure around $400+ tax.  Ouch.  I'm interested in seeing how well the whole thing works in operation.  If it requires you to manually push it even with power functions that will make it much less impressive.

I agree.  My daughter and I built the carousel this weekend and we noticed it on there as well.

This looks a little boring to build if you ask me. Also I really don’t like the design of the inverted tripod on the left.

Yeah, it looks like they cut corners to keep the piece count down.  The designers were probably trying for a hybrid wooden / steel coaster look.  Personally I find the new Creator Pirate roller coaster set much more appealing.

While the 2 X 2s don't bother me, LEGO does have some girder pieces that would have worked and looked better.

That wouldn´t help boost the piece count, though.

Nope, I don't think so. Every Fairground Theme set so far has the option to be motorised. Fairground Mixer, Ferris Wheel, Carousel, and now this Coaster. 

The rotating swing is definitely the most likely candidate to be revealed around this time next year. :)

The bumper cars can be motorized, it will take some thought, but could be done..  I do think there will be other sets first, like maybe the swing.. If they can get that to go up and down and swing.. Yea, Yea...
