Initial details around the supposed addition to the Fairground Collection suggested that it would feature the only thing really missing from 10261 Roller Coaster, in the form of a loop – but Recognised LEGO Fan Media site Zusammengebaut now claims that the set will actually include two separate loops along its track.
Zusammengebaut confidently reports that this is a fact rather than a rumour, but remember that until something is actually confirmed by the LEGO Group, it remains a rumour – as we are reporting it here – and must be taken with the appropriate pinch of salt. The same can still be said of the rest of the details currently circling around 10303 Roller Coaster, including its price and release date.
According to recent reports, the next entry in the Fairground Collection – following 2020’s 10273 Haunted House, and before that 2018’s 10261 Roller Coaster – will consist of 3,756 pieces and retail for $349.99. That’s a full 418 pieces and $30 down on the last coaster, suggesting that while the new ride may incorporate a double loop, it could end up being slightly smaller overall.
Early rumours indicated that 10303 Roller Coaster would race on to shelves in either May or June, but the latest report says it’ll now launch on July 1, 2022 – if it exists at all, of course.
