If there’s one thing the world most famous bricks can’t do, it would be functioning roller coaster models. Not that nobody has done it; it has been done, but there’s just one problem: true-to-LEGO roller coasters function rather jerkily simply because LEGO don’t have purpose-built track pieces. Even there were actual track pieces, you will probably kill your braincells thinking how to go about putting one together. Well, here’s an easier way: Cyclone LEGO Compatible Roller Coaster Construction Toy. As the product name implies, it is a non-official LEGO set but it is compatible with your favorite bricks anyhow, so you can customize it to however you see fits.

For $149, you get over 1,000 pieces of parts, along with instructions, to build a fully functional roller coaster model as pictured above. And if you think the model here looks exceeding like a real roller coaster, well, that’s because this is a properly engineered model conceived by real engineers, including a real-life roller coaster designer. Hell, you’d be hard-pressed to find a real car engineer behind toy cars, let alone a roller coaster construction toy. So, you’d be building a pretty accurate roller coaster, despite it being a toy set.

The roller coaster model stretches 4 feet long and features the requisite drops, and twists and turns. It even incorporates a manually-operated miniature chain lift to haul the cars on to the first hill where the Earth’s gravity will do the rest. The only things lacking here are a station and automation, but those can easily integrated with your spare LEGO bricks and by adding a LEGO Power Functions and battery box.
