The most important moment in the new roller coaster from the set LEGO 10303 defines the presence of two loops that run right next to each other. For the most comfortable ride for passengers in this constructor, the large Looping extra has the shape of a drop, which is also used on a real roller coaster, and not a circular track.
Sufficient speed for two loops, the roller coaster is obtained through a vertical elevator. In it, carts are lifted up, rather than up a steep rail, by a chain hoist. When the elevator is tilted, the cars arriving at the top will roll straight ahead, after which the first fall occurs at an angle of 90 °, leading to the first cycle.
In this set, loops and an elevator are the main highlight of the new roller coaster. On the next trip, they return directly to the start of the cycle. No wonder this set has become one of the most anticipated Lego products.
