The TTPM Spring Showcase takes place in New York today, and LEGO is kicking things off with the debut of the new LEGO Creator Expert: Roller Coaster set.
Take the fun of the fairground home with this 4,124-piece chain-lift Roller Coaster featuring lots of brick-built details and 11 minifigures. The fully functional model comes with 2 trains and a variety of authentic features and functions, including a ticket booth, cotton candy cart, concession stand, height marker, and a covered boarding station with opening barriers and a control panel.
To start the ride, lower the lap bars to secure guests into the cars and 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 gravity-driven cars speed through the Roller Coaster’s twists and turns.
You can also upgrade the Roller Coaster with LEGO Power Functions for a motorized chain lift or with LEGO BOOST for automated chain lift activation and realistic sound effects.
Look for decorated elements like a ticket, money, arrow tiles, pressure gauge, number pad and a ride control panel. Special new elements include a 2x8x6 Rail Slope, 1x2x1 Bow Brick, plant leaves, stalks, and flowers.
The Roller Coaster combines with the 10257 LEGO Creator Expert Carousel and 10247 LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel to create a picture-perfect fairground at home.
