Roller coaster enthusiasts are going to love this construction kit. The Cyclone is a 1:48-scale roller coaster that you can build yourself and put on your desk. Just because. Do you really need a reason?
If it was a pre-built model, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun, so it is very cool that you can build this yourself. It uses blocks that are compatible with LEGO, and you can customize your coasters. It comes with a working train that can run its way around the track through the integrated hand crank-powered mechanism. If you want to motorize the track, you can also upgrade to a LEGO Power Functions motor. I wonder if you could combine several sets to make a huge coaster.
It comes with over 1,000 pieces, which include the construction bricks, the four-foot long track, and the mechanical system that allows the train the run through the course, and you get the joy of building it all.
So what are you waiting for? You can get your own Cyclone coaster kit from Kickstarter for $149(USD).
