Well, this is going to make thrill ride-loving LEGO fans all wet with excitement. I know am and I am not shy about it. This is what known to be the world’s largest replica of the wooden roller coaster made out entirely of LEGO elements. Built by one very talented LEGO enthusiast and YouTuber Chairudo, AKA Tomáš Kašpařík, back in 2017, it is modeled after the 1,200 by 60 meters (3,937 by 197 feet) El Toro in Jersey’s Six Flags and it was recently brought to Czech Republic and installed in a Prague toy store for the store’s exhibition called Czech RepuBRICK.
The exhibition will kick off on March 6, in case you happen to be around in Prague. This scale model is fully functional and boasts 90,000 pieces which took Chairudo 800 hours to build. The result is, as you can see, nothing short of mind-blowing. All told, this LEGO-rized El Toro stretches 21 feet (6.5 meters) long, spans nearly 4 feet (1.2 meters) across and towers at 4.6 feet (1.4 meters) tall, and features an minifigure-insane 4-5 feet drop.
As if this scaled LEGO El Toro isn’t impressive enough, Chairudo has decorated its surrounding with appropriate rides and features, including snail rides, swinging chairs, and wait what? Galactic battle? Where a X-Wing fighter is seen having a wakeboarder in tow? Hmmm… interesting indeed. But those are just garnishes, the real star of the show is the coast itself and to fully appreciate the build, one has to take a front seat ride as one of the minifigure and you do so by watching the video right after this post. After which, do proceed forward for a third person tour of this majestic LEGO MOC. Trust me, you don’t want to miss either video. No, seriously…
