LEGO Roller Coaster

From LikeCool:

This is a LEGO Wooden Roller Coaster inspired by El Toro at Six Flags.

It is made of just under 90,000 pieces and took nearly 800 hours to build.

It is 6.5 meters long, 1.2 meters wide, and 1.4 meters high.

It has 26 meters of track (in reality the track is about 1200 meters long and 60 meters high).

The biggest issue with the track was getting the angles right so the roller coaster would make it over the hills without derailing.

Huge variables in functionality are temperature and humidity, which affect friction and the speed of the cars.
