              The Cyclone Roller Coaster

 

 What Is It? 

     The Cyclone is a block based (LEGO® , Kre-o, Mega Bloks, etc.) roller coaster construction toy. It will be the first commercially available kit that combines the versatility of the world's leading building block system with the realism and excitement of the CoasterDynamix track system. The result is an amazing roller coaster model that is easy to build and fun to customize. Join multiple sets together to make larger, more elaborate custom designs.The possibilities are endless! 

What Do You Get?

     The Cyclone kit comes with over 1000 individual pieces and has everything needed to build a 4' long working roller coaster model. This includes standard and custom bricks, lift chain, gears, hand crank, track, and a train. With the provided instructions, the kit is easy and fun to build with no need for extra pieces or complicated tools.

Why Pledge?

     We have put hundreds of hours into the design and engineering of the Cyclone. We need your support to make the dream of creating a block based roller coaster system a reality. That support will enable us to purchase the plastic injection molds needed to make all the components, as well as building inventory for production. With our experience in bringing exciting roller coaster models to market, coupled with your support, we feel the Cyclone can be a tremendous success.

     This project was conceived by a dedicated group of engineers, including a real roller coaster designer. Based around the CoasterDynamix track and train system developed in 2004, the Cyclone functions just like an actual roller coaster. A miniature chain lift hauls the cars to the top of the first hill, then gravity takes over from there. The kit includes everything you need to build the Cyclone.

The CoasterDynamix track system is famous for its realism.

The Cyclone model comes with a hand crank for the chain lift, but also has a direct fit for the Lego® Power Functions (#8882) and battery box (#8881), available for purchase separately.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we face is the actual manufacturing of the plastic parts. In order to produce quality similar to the world's leading building block system, our injection molds must be very precise. CoasterDynamix has been making injection molded parts for over twelve years, so we have built relationships with mold companies that do exceptional work. If this project is successfully funded, we have allowed three months of quality testing to make sure all of the parts are the best we can make.
