Instagram user brick_clicker claims that product number 10303 will belong to a successor to 2018’s 10261 Roller Coaster, the LEGO Group’s biggest Fairground Collection set to date. That now-retired 4,124-piece model retailed for $379.99 in the US, while the new version will reportedly come in slightly cheaper at $359.99.
It’s still a pretty similar price tag, though, so we could be looking at a set equally similar in scope, size and ambition to the original coaster. Only this time, there’s a chance – at least according to brick_clicker – that it’ll include the one feature missing from 10261 Roller Coaster: a loop.
Exactly how the LEGO Group would achieve that with its current roller coaster track assortment remains to be seen, but it may be that it’s come up with specific elements for a loop. Given how widely the current track pieces have been implemented across other product lines – including Creator, Friends, The LEGO Batman Movie and Monkie Kid – any new parts could prove similarly versatile.
10303 Roller Coaster (which may not be its final product name) is said to be launching in May or June, so we’ll hopefully find out more over the next couple of months. For now, take this rumour – as you should all of them – with a pinch of salt, at least until we get any official confirmation from the LEGO Group.
