Building Hackley, Brick by Brick

In the 2018-19 school year, Lower School students in the Brick Builders After School Club embarked on a year-long group project to create a Hackley-themed roller coaster, complete with Hackley Hornet mascot roller coaster cars.

The complex also includes a ticket booth and an adjoining spinning Hornet ride, and features architecture representing the Upper, Middle, and Lower School divisions. It even features Hackley landmarks such as the Old Oak on the Quad, the Hackley forest, and "Enter Here to Be and Find a Friend" over the entrance to the ride.

Students, instructors, and division heads can be found in the building interiors, playing instruments, in the makerspace, or eating lunch.  Members of the community are imagined as animatronic robotic figures greeting riders as they ascend the track, while the Alma Mater plays in the background.
