on

The LEGO Roller Coaster (10261) is now available to purchase at the LEGO Shop @ Home website for $379.99 with free shipping, exclusively for LEGO VIP members through the end of the month.

LEGO fans have been clamoring for a working LEGO roller coaster for years. The first evidence one was on the way came last fall when The Joker Manor set came with new roller coaster track pieces. Those same pieces are present in the new Creator Roller Coaster set, though there are far more of them and many more cool features like a manual or Power Functions lift system.

Here are the extensive specs for the LEGO Roller Coaster, an Expert Creator set for those keeping track.

  • Includes 11 minifigures: a cotton candy vendor, 2 ride attendants, 2 grandparents with their granddaughter and 5 riders. 8 of these minifigures feature reversible heads to display different emotions.
  • Fully functional chain-lift Roller Coaster model features a classic brick-built sign, control panel, 2 trains—each consisting of 3 train cars with low-friction wheels, and a 44-piece track consisting of 7 different rail elements.
  • Also features a ticket booth, fountain, cotton candy cart, concession stand, waiting area with bench, camera element and a pond with a frog figure.
  • Buy your ticket at the booth and make your way to the covered plaza.
  • No cheating at the height marker—the ride attendant has an accurate measuring stick!
  • Help the riders into the cars and secure the lap bars.
  • Release the brake to send the cars to the foot of the first climb.
  • Activate the chain lift to pull the train cars to the top of the first drop.
  • Move the rails to launch a second train.
  • Serve refreshing beverages at the concession stand or spin some cotton candy.
  • Don’t forget to smile as you race past the camera!
  • 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!
  • This amazing set includes over 4,120 pieces.
  • Decorated elements include a ticket, money, arrow tiles, pressure gauge, number pad and a ride control panel.
  • Special new-for-June-2018 elements include a 2x8x6 Rail Slope, 1x2x1 Bow Brick, plant leaves, stalks and flowers.
  • Other elements include a height checker and 2 cotton candy treats.
  • Makes the perfect fairground addition to the 10257 LEGO Creator Expert Carousel.
  • Measures over 20” (53cm) high, 34” (88cm) wide and 16” (41cm) deep.
