Hello everyone on Eurobricks!
I make carnival rides with lego.
The rides are fully transportable.

Here are some of my pictures.

First of all, I'd like to post a build-up-report from my first ride, the Deca Dance

First of all, the ride arrives as a trailer
Posted Image

Posted Image

Then the ride is being driven to place
Posted Image

Posted Image

Then the "diamond" is connected and the red/white lines are removed
Posted Image

Then the wheels are being driven away the the ride is being placed correctly
Posted Image

Here's a picture of the wheels
Posted Image

Next the arms are placed correctly
Posted Image

Posted Image

Then the rides becomes round
Posted Image

next the rest of the gondolla's is being placed
Posted Image

Next the floor is being built up
Posted Image

Ready
Posted Image

The ticket booth's are being made ready
Posted Image

Now it's time for the poles
Posted Image

Now for the fences
Posted Image

Now the decoration's are being placed
Posted Image

And now it's ready
Posted Image

Here is the complete transport
Posted Image

And another total picture
Posted Image


These models are still under construction, so they arren't finnished yet.

First, the Showtime
Posted Image

Posted Image


Next, the Intoxx
First there are some transportation pictures.

When fully built up it looks like this

Only two things scare me and one of them is nuclear war. Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands. All seriousness aside, nice work!
"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Thanks for your comments :D

One trailer for the Intoxx still has to be made, so some parts that are on a trailer are laying on the table
Posted Image

Posted Image

And here is the testvideo of the Showtime

It's just a test video so it swings zo low.
It also shocks a little bit, but that's beacause operating the model and filming at the same time are hard..

Your comments are welcome.

Nice work.  I've seen some nice carnival rides built out of LEGO but the fact you've actually built the various trucks to transport them takes the cake!  This is one of the most original set of MOCs I've seen in a few years.  While I'm not too keen on a few of the modified pieces (the silver baseplates in particular), the overall quality of this MOC is hard to ignore.  Do you have any video footage of the "Deca Dance" in operation.  I really like the setup for this MOC and I would love to see it in motion.

These MOCs are certainly a great way to introduce yourself to the Eurobricks forums.  Keep them coming :classic: !

Wow, those are incredible! They look like the real thing. I see these trucks out in Philly all summer from the endless amount of carnivals. I wasn't expecting them to be so prototypical and they are. I wish Lego would release something like this, that would be really cool. Amazing work!!

It's been a while since the last update, so I thought I'd make a update.

After some time, the floor of the Crazy Beach Party is done.
I think the ride looks better with the floors.

And this is the truck for the ride.

In the next update I will post pictures of the Magic and my new Booster.

These are really amazing.  I can't tell you how many hours I've spent admiring them.  These combine two things kids love - LEGO and carnivals.  What still amazes me is is that they are not only functional but portable.  I just wanted to tell you what a great job you've done on these, true masterpieces.

These are really astounding! The addition of printed decals really takes them to the next level, IMO. Keep up the great work!

Your work is amazing!

I'm currently working on a 6-wide circus train, but after seeing these I might have to go 8-wide to add some rides!

Once again awesome work!

Another update of the Magic.
The ride itself is almost finished, all that needs to be done are some small decorations.
The transport is almost finished too, al that needs to be built for that is a DAF truck.

This is the transport of the XenoX

Time for a transport update.

The transport of the Deca Dance has changed, the DAF trucks are gone, now there are Scania's

The Magic transport is finished, now all that's left to do are some minor things to the ride itself.
