LEGO has a new Creator Expert set to unveil today and it’s HUGE. Creator Expert: Roller Coaster is just like it sounds, and you’ll be blown away by all of its detail. The set features a fully functional chain-lift model that comes with 2 trains, a ticket booth, cotton candy cart, concession stand, height marker, and a covered boarding station complete with opening barriers and a control panel.
Builders can lower the lap bars to “secure” the minifig passengers into their cars and you can release the brake to send the train to the foot of the first climb, then activate the chain lift and enjoy the ride as the cars hurtle through the Roller Coaster’s twists and turns. The Roller Coaster is upgradable with LEGO Power Functions and LEGO BOOST for an added movement sensor and sound effects.
But let’s not forget about the minifigs. the set comes with 11 minifigures: a cotton candy vendor, 2 ride attendants, 2 grandparents with their granddaughter and 5 riders. 8 of these minifigs come with reversible heads so that you can switch out their emotions.
The entire set comes with 4,124 pieces and it measures over 20” (53cm) high, 34” (88cm) wide and 16” (41cm) deep. The LEGO Creator Expert 10261 Roller Coaster will be available starting June 1st for a hefty price of $379.99. But being able to build it and then show it off? That’s priceless.
