Since Lego have kinda gone quiet on the Fairground rides, I've been busy! I'd long since decided that I wanted some dodgems in my funfair to accompany my Carousel, Ferris Wheel & Mixer, so about a year ago a started doing some research. My favourite "existing" set was one on Ideas. So rather cheekily I contacted the designer, skcheung, and asked him for any advice, or tips. I liked what he had done but wanted to "bling" it up and redesign the mechanism to accommodate my own ideas. Anyway he helped immensely, I even asked him if, when finished, we as a team should re-submit my plans to IDEAS and share proceeds if we were fortunate enough to get over the line. Sadly the response put a rather large hole in any plans for Ideas, they are super unlikely to manufacture any design containing magnets as young kids have been known to swallow them... Anyway after about 6 months designing, 3 months collecting/buying parts and another 3 months tweaking once built, i finished. It shares the same footprint as the Carousel (something i am determined to be non-negotiable for all my funfair rides.) and uses the standard Power Functions battery pack, motor and polarity switch. My photo skills are a bit rubbish so there's a video at the end too. Once again a big thanks to SK Cheung - Without his advice I would not have made a set that I am as happy with, as I am playing with this :) Thanks for looking.... Now on to that GHOST TRAIN!!!
[This is a LEGO Ideas' project and it awaits your support: "]https://ideas.lego.c...rojects/102064] Hello everyone, I have been away from LEGO Town for quite a long time. Here comes my MOC... not 100% a sort of new work but a refinement of my previous one: http://www.eurobrick...l=+bumper +cars (LEGO Friends' Theme Park (4): Bumper Cars) Since then, I was advised by a number of people that such a girly MOC was far less desirable than a boy one. That's why this comes out: It takes me for more than a year to make improvements -- virtually a new start except the use of magnets is retained. There are so many stages of transformation; there are simply many trials and errors I have experienced... The cars looks more resemblance to real ones. I use a tiled baseplate even though a normal baseplate with studs do not affect the smooth running of the cars. I also make the turntable much more handy, so that it require much fewer bricks. In the meantime, I still keep the delay function (In case you don't know what I am referring to, please check the video at the bottom of this page) In order to make the set more playable, there is a manuel mode: you can pick up the axles placed at the top of the set and use them to control a car and smash the others. Hope you enjoy my work and think this is much fun! A video is better than 1000 words. Most likely you will understand all my words above after watching it: Finally, yes, this is my project of LEGO Ideas.

Another facility of my Friends' theme park. I wish not only girls love it, but also boys do. As a father of a 5-year girl, I have won her heart and let her go nut. You may do the same to your daughters/lover/fiance/wife. The girls like to bump the others. Sometimes it can be a head-to-head bump. The bumper cars are driven by magnets underneath. Enjoy. This bumper cars set is consisted of 3 major components: (1) The baseplate, which resembles 10196 (but not a full copy) (2) The turntable, which looks a little bit complex (3) The top plate Please have a look at the following video: The cars are powered by magnets. If you want to know further how it operates, check this video of "the making of bumper cars" https://www.facebook...&type=2 This is a CUUSOO project. Please support if you really want it to become an official LEGO product: http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/53204 My former works of the Friends' Theme Park for your easy reference: 1. Grand Carousel: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=87068 2. Ferris Wheel: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=87882 3. Gyro Drop: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=88256 I am currently working on part V of this theme park and so far I have no idea of where should I stop. Perhaps this theme park is ever expanding. I may be a bit clumsy. Still sincerely hope you enjoy my work.
