What is a 3 in 1 LEGO set?

A LEGO 3 in 1 set is a type of LEGO building set that allows you to build three different models with the same set of bricks. These sets typically come with instructions for building three different model designs, each with a unique theme and set of features.

For example, this 3 in 1 set includes instructions for several different amusement park rides, including the Roller Coaster, a drop tower with an elevator and a spinning UFO space carousel.

Unfortunately you can’t build all three versions at one time. You would need to buy 3 sets in total to make all the different combinations.

LEGO 3 in 1 sets are popular among LEGO enthusiasts of all ages, as they offer a fun and challenging building experience, as well as the opportunity to create something for creative play and imaginative storytelling. Whether you’re a seasoned LEGO builder or just getting started, a 3 in 1 set can provide hours of entertainment and creativity.

How long does it take to build the 2023 LEGO Space coaster set?

An advance builder can put this set together in about 2 hours or so. I think that at the beginning recommended age of 9+ it will probably take around 4-5 hours to put it together, and they should be able to do it all by themselves.

In terms of value for money, the cost of this set may be higher than some other LEGO sets due to its size, complexity, and features. However, the set offers a unique building experience for space fans and provides a lot of play value and display potential.

For a $100 set, this is a very good one, and has lots of playability, and hours of fun!

Final thoughts

The Space Roller Coaster 31142 is a fun set that creates a winding roller coaster track around a space theme.

Usingthe LEGO builder app guide, you can also have an interactive digital building experience, and choose from the spinning space carousel, or Space shuttle alternate rides.

But my favorite part is the light brick feature.
