The Roller Coaster (set 10261) is one of the best sets LEGO has ever produced. Anyway, the coaster has some small problems that can be overcome with some genuine LEGO Mindstorms EV3 automation components of the shelf. It is even possible to have three sledges running at the same time!

  1. Hello Matt,

    that is an awesome work

    Have you put the code on your website. Because i can’t find it.

    Thanks a lot

    1. Hello Nono,
      no, I didn’t. But the code is very simple. If you have done two or three little things with Mindstorms, you shouldn’t have a problem of creating it yourself. Actually, my 11-year-old son programmed it.
