90,000-Piece Lego Roller Coaster Gives Thrills Without the Puke
If you are curious about experiencing a mammoth roller coaster but fear it could end needing to find a change of clothes, this video is for you. YouTuber ‘Chairudo’ has recreated the famed El Toro roller coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey in Lego and this video gives you a first-person view of the entire ride. For the easily queasy a few seconds of this video will be enough to turn your stomach as the lego cart rockets around tight loops and dramatically lunges down deep descents. For Legoland roller coaster fans you have to watch Chairudo's other video that goes into detail of this incredible Lego model. It reportedly took the Lego fanatic more than 800 hours to assemble the 90,000 plastic pieces it took to create the awe-inspiring design. The completed design is 6,5 meters long 1,2 meters wide and 1,4 meters tall. The detail in the model is astonishing, surrounding the rollercoaster a series of smaller rides and Bart Simpson is even out for a casual water ski on the lake.
The real El Toro roller coaster aka The Bull is a wooden roller coaster in Jackson, New Jersey that tops a whopping 55 m. It held the record for the steepest drop of any wooden roller coaster in the world at 76 degrees, until 2008 when its record was broken by the T Express in Korea by one degree. The El Toro is the fourth fastest wooden roller coaster in the world.
Why do we do it, how can we stop it, and who else is at it?
