Set Details

Get ready to experience the excitement of your favourite rollercoaster rides! The LEGO® Icons Loop Coaster (10303) is a fascinating building project designed for adults. This gravity-driven coaster features a train, a boarding station with opening barriers and a control panel. Secure the riders by lowering the bars before releasing the brake to send the train racing down to the foot of the elevator lift. Activate the elevator lift and enjoy the thrill as the carriages zoom through loops and turns. For a motorized elevator lift, you can upgrade the coaster with LEGO Powered Up (sold separately). Additionally, you’ll find accessories like a park bench, a map, a balloon cart, a pretzel cart, a hot-dog stand, and a height marker to complement your rollercoaster experience.

A great looking set, from a strong and popular theme, and with decent performance form the few retired sets within the sub theme too makes this a very serious consideration as an investment for us. The slight hesitancy is the considerable price tag, the lack of available discounts and the likelihood it still has at least another 18 months of shelf life.

For us this is a set we really like but for now it will go firmly onto our watch list with a view to looking to purchase if discounts arise in future closer to its likely retirement date.
