Ghost Train Entry

I made a carnival ride Ghost Train which uses a technic 9volt motor to turn the entire MOC.
The train itself is fixed to the base so you can see all the rooms of the ride as it rotates.

I also made a Brickfilm so you can see it in action.

Fantastic PE!  I loved the video.  Great sounds/special effects (like the lightning).  This is very enjoyable to watch.  This reminds me of another Ghost Train carnival ride I saw last year.  Great design and interesting to have the structure itself turn.

Is this an entry for the Ghost Train Building Challenge?  Not quite a traditional train, but since there's no rules to get in the way of creativity, I think it will work just fine.

This deserves a little "front-page" acknowledgment.

Good job mate, you really do come up with some awesome ideas with the brick. When you first told me about it I was a little unsure how it would turn out, but I'm pleasantly suprised. Top work pe668! :classic:

very very cool video  :thumbup:
I really like your idea about turning the entire MOC and leaving the train fixed to its base. Nicely done.

Really original take on the contest theme. And that video is hilarious and very well done: I really like the facial expressions used.

Brilliant! I love how the white train just stands out among all those black elements. As to the technical brainstorming that has gone into this - kudos for that, it must have been a lot of work but the end result is really... shocking  :tongue:

"I liked the film but it just wasn't scary enough" - Anonymous

I hear you. It started to build suspense but fell flat, only the main character got scared, not the viewer.
Keep in mind this is a family film (rated-G) but I made a new ending.

New and improved, now with more scary bits.

Hahaha, excellent work there! Very funny ending, I  didn't see it coming. Perhaps they could have gone around one more time though?
But great job. :thumbup:
