Has anyone here bought and made a roller coaster from the Roller Coaster Factory yet?

Looks cool, maybe a little flimsy......
I wonder how it'll hold up.

We had the opportunity to see this close up at Brickworld last year. It can be used to make a pretty impressive coaster if you have enough sets.



Our own Chris Edwards was one of a few builders given an advanced copy and challenged with billing a model using parts from the kit for a special presentation at Brickworld.

I went ahead and bought a set (so my coaster when finally done) will not be as awesome as the one you posted.

I bought. Have not built. Will be interested to see comments here.

I noted to my dismay that they could not get their demo working at Brickworld last year Sad

I had a bit of trouble with mine. I did have a nice coaster that actually went all the way around, but as soon as I added any bricks to the cars (even just seats) it would get stuck on my bends. It has since been torn down and will be redone from the ground up.
