The just announced 70922 The Joker Manor will introduce no less than five new rollercoaster track pieces as well as the cars themselves, which surely signals the arrival of a Creator Expert rollercoaster next year.
Let's take a look at the pieces after the break...
You can click on the picture for a super-hi-res version.
From left to right we can identify the five pieces:
- 90 degree curve, I'm guess at something like 32 studs diameter
- Shallow ramp
- 8 length straight
- Steep Ramp, lower section
- Steep ramp, upper section
The ramp pieces appear to be 16 studs long.
The lime green rollercoaster cars are five studs long and fitted with four wheels, side guards to keep them on the track and a coupling system that enables them to turn corners. It is not motorised -- the instructions would have said as much if it were -- so the 'hand of God' will be needed to push it round the track.
However, I suspect it's very free-rolling and maybe the cars are capable of being driven up a steep ramp to enable a realistic rollercoaster to be constructed, using pieces not present in this set.
What do you think?
