Lego Technic Test Track, Technic Coaster, Project X - Test Strecke and X-treme Racers are and was the names of five identical steel wild mouse roller coasters manufactured by Mack Rides at Legoland theme parks around the world.

History

The first installation opened at Legoland California in 2001 as Technic Coaster. This was followed by Legoland Deutschland's Project X - Test Strecke and Legoland Billund's X-treme Racers in 2002.

On March 20, 2004, Jungle Coaster opened at Legoland Windsor in the Adventure Land section of the park. The ride however closed in 2009 in preparation of its relocation to Legoland Florida. The site of Jungle Coaster is now occupied by the Legoland Hotel. Jungle Coaster reopened on October 15, 2011 as LEGO TECHNIC Test Track at Legoland Florida in the Lego Technic section of the park.

On September 15, 2012, Legoland Malaysia opened Lego Technic Test Track.

The Great Lego Race

On March 23, 2018, the Legoland Florida version of Project X became The Great Lego Race, a VR coaster. Although the experience is still the same, it has a brand new theme.

On November 22, 2017, Project-X at Legoland Malaysia became The Great Lego Race.

During 2018, the Legoland Deutschland version of Project X was upgraded to The Great Lego Race with VR. In the 2019 season, the ride was downgraded again, but the new name stayed. The only difference compared to the original version is a new entrance design.
