We’ve waited two long years after the Haunted House for the next addition to the LEGO Fairground Collection. Here it is! LEGO has just announced the release of 10303 Loop Coaster, a truly massive double loop roller coaster!
The set has 3756 pieces and 11 minifigures, releasing 1 July for general sale. The set will cost US $399.99 / DE €399.99 / UK £344.99 / AU $599.99.
The immediate thing you notice about the set is the height. It’s a whopping 92cm tall! This makes it one of the tallest LEGO sets ever. The only one I can think of that’s taller is the Saturn V rocket, and that’s only if you display it standing up. This one is imposing. It’s going to be a real struggle trying to find a place to display it!
I didn’t have a decent enough internet connection to upload the video in time, but we’ve got it thanks to the Rambling Brick!
There are 11 minifigures included in the set. Some of the more notable ones are the balloon art vendor, pretzel vendor, hot dog vendor, a grandma and a young boy and five other riders. Plenty of minifigures to scare the pants off! There’s also a squirrel! Woo!
There’s motorised components that you can add to it (they’re not included) to enable the elevator to rise up by itself, or you can raise it manually with the hand crank.
I really like the colour scheme and modern design to it. The logo on the far left looks great, although it could be mis-read as LBP!
I cannot wait to get my hands on this one. It’s on it’s way so look out for a review of this set as soon as I can get it out. There’s more images below, as well as the press release.
