These Movie-Themed Minecraft Roller Coasters Will Take You On A Ride You'll Never Forget
Today I've got your monthly reminder of just how amazing Minecraft is, in the form of a mindblowing Ghostbusters-inspired roller coaster created by a team in Creative mode on the Xbox 360 version of the wildly popular game. The video above was taken in one continuous shot, which makes the machinima maker's camera work almost impressive as all the redstone circuitry powering the more dynamic aspects of the coaster. The track may not have a single loop to it but I doubt Universal Studios could make a real Ghostbusters ride as impressive as this virtual one.
Of course, this isn't the first coaster the team has worked on...
In a lot of ways, I think their Beetlejuice coaster may be even more impressive. It employs just about every perspective trick in the book, making for one hell of a ride. Each coaster can take months to complete in Creative mode and it's easy to see why. These aren't just roller coasters; they're works of virtual art.
But I've saved the best part of this story for last. These coaster-creators ask for donations... Directly to the NF Family Foundation, a charity that supports families affected by Neurofibromatosis. Talented, creative, and charitable. Does it get much better than that?
Be sure to check out their full line-up of coasters on their YouTube channel, and subscribe to see what they come up with next.
