From the official site:

Capture the speed, thrills and excitement of the ultimate fairground attraction with this incredible LEGO® Creator Expert 10261 Roller Coaster. This fully functional chain-lift model comes with 2 trains and an array of authentic features and functions, including a ticket booth, cotton candy cart, concession stand, height marker, and a covered boarding station complete with opening barriers and a control panel. Lower the lap bars to secure the riders into the cars and release the brake to send the train to the foot of the first climb. Then activate the chain lift and enjoy the ride as the gravity-driven cars hurtle through the Roller Coaster’s twists and turns. Upgrade the Roller Coaster with LEGO Power functions for a motorized chain lift or LEGO BOOST for an added movement sensor and realistic sound effects! This incredible collectible toy has been designed to provide a challenging and rewarding building experience with a touch of nostalgia and charm. Includes 11 minifigures.

I don't know what frittering is, but I've bought about 10 Lego sets that cost three-figures since my kid was born. I also save money. Your judgment of other people sucks.

Why do you assume to know anything about the kid's college fund or the income of the father?

Because grown adults with families and children don't get to fritter away money like that. And I'm jealous of the ones that do.

So what you really mean is "Some grown adults with families and children get to fritter away money like that. And I'm jealous of the ones that do."
I mean, we're on a roller coaster board. It's not like any of us has room to judge recreational spending habits.

Hell, my kid goes to one of the most expensive colleges in the US and, while I don't buy Lego sets, I do my fair share of frittering on my coke and hooker "hobby" - so I totally get it.

Because if there's three things in life that ain't cheap...it's drugs, hookers and Lego.

I finished it this afternoon, and it's pretty cool. Lots of authentic details, though none of the minifigs have a single rider T-shirt.

They really missed the boat on that one... They could have had the riders smell like old clothes and B.O, too. Does it have an audio box with a button that you press to listen to the whining about the second half possibly having pacing issues? Or how it sucks how they only run one train?

Just saying... they really could have made it more authentic. Especially since our kids can't go to college now...

You can get crack for cheap, you can find a $20 toothless hooker, but one thing is for sure: you will never find cheap Lego.
