LEGO Mindstorms NXT Rollercoaster – 20 Seconds of Thrill

LEGO Mindstorms NXT Rollercoaster by NXTchris

This astonishing creation is as fun as it looks. NXTchris did not just tackle technical difficulties but made the whole surrounding, minifigures and amazing atmosphere around this LEGO Rollercoaster. Other amazing thing is that it has only took Chris about 40 hours of work in total to put this thing together plus another hour to program the LEGO Mindstorms NXT intelligent brick.

We love the slow motion and close-ups of the details in the video. Second (long) video below shows more details. Chris has used Coasterdynamix tracks in this showpiece. This company makes the world’s most realistic and amazing roller coaster models. ┬áSecond video explains the build details, main sensors and other components used.

As LEGO models lineup does not include a rollercoaster, this inspirational build already became a real case study for LEGO MOC enthusiasts. Chris is a very experienced builder member of LOWLUG a LEGO User Group of The Lowlands (Holland).
