    Some of the techniques employed in that build are really cool! The idea of turning the track pieces sideways to create more severe drops, and those (admittedly unrealistic, but still cleverly designed) inversions is genuinely brilliant. Very impressive indeed. :)

    I started making a vertical loop, but there's not enough pieces in the roller coaster set to do it :(

    Think I'll go on Bricklink and order some more track...

    They'll never greenlight an Ideas set that would compete with one of their own sets.

    It’s not quite a Roller Coaster, but perhaps equally interesting/unique.

    Essentially it’s a Haunted House with a drop tower in the middle, making it part of the fairground sub-theme. Strongly reminds me of Tower Of Terror and the Haunted Mansion, not to mention Lego’s own Monster Party attraction.

    Plenty of references to 90’s/00’s themes if anyone remembers those.

    It's Lego priced.

    I didn't think it would go over £200 though. But I guess with the dropping mechanism it had to be.

    First time I've seen it below £300 today (£299.99 in Smyth's) so have indulged. Won't be doing anything with it until house move is done though.

    I have uncovered six sets that I never opened that according to Brick Economy are worth a grand altogether, so when I get around to flogging those I will feel less bad.

    Congrats, you saved 1p. ;)

    Seriously though, I'd love to get it but unless it gets a lot, lot cheaper I'll have to wait. :(

    £250 on Amazon at the moment, can't imagine it will go much less.

    Glad I paid £300 on it, it's still in the garage :rolleyes:
