Today's build is the Lego Creator series Pirates Rollercoaster. This is the front of the box
The back of the box. You'll notice this set can actually build three different models and it actually contains the instructions for all three variations.
Unpacking the box, there are lots of bags of supplies and you can see the build manual
The minifigures that come with this set and a cool balloon cart build
First we are going to start by constructing the actual station. The next few photos will show periodic updates through that stage of the build.
Moving out from the station, a water splash section has been added, which is what that blue section to the left of the station is supposed to be
Next was bracing for the actual track portion of the ride
This is actually the final drop of the ride
The next few photos outline the build for the shipwreck decoration that goes at the top of the final drop
The installed shipwreck at the top of the last drop
This is located at the bracing underneath the elevated curve of the ride
The initial drop of the ride off the lift hill. You'll notice some themed pieces have been added including a crab, fish and seaweed
This cool themed structure in the shape of a skull is at the top of the lift
Adding the track from the station to the lift
The start of the lift hill. You'll notice that unlike the CDX models, this particular model does not actually have a working lifthill
A very fun octopus build
It gets installed directly under the lift hill
The track and station are now complete. The final step here was to add "caps" at the connections between the track pieces to keep them in place.
The train for this ride is very interesting. I believe they are wanting it to be a shark
The train has been installed and is located in the station.
Time to do some detail shots of the finished product
Entrance and ticketing area
Climbing the lift hill. You'll notice that the cart hits the skull which then swings to let it pass
Navigating the first dip into the curve
Going around the curve by the shipwreck
Down into the water splash. They have it set up so that the cart activates the water splash to pop up when it goes through here. You have to manually reset it
This was a great build. Lots of detail and just an overall quality product.
