The latest skin pack for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft is Doctor Who, and the roller coaster that these players built with it — block by block — is nothing short of incredible.
We've seen plenty of crazy Minecraft creations that recreate fictional worlds, to building functional computers in the game. But the rollercoasters that nuropsych1 and Rivergrl21 build with friends are really works of art.
