(Long time lurker, first-time poster here, so be gentle :) As a great lover of the fairground/ theme parks, I was pretty disappointed last year when we didn't get a Creator Expert Fairground set. I decided to take matters into my own hands and set about designing some rides of my own. I present to you; the Swing Carousel and the Drop Tower! (apologies if these photos are too large; I am nowhere near technically skilled enough to choose sizes myself :) Both rides function exactly like their real life counterparts - in the Chair-O-Planes' case, via lots of gearing and a drive wheel, and in the Drop Tower's case, by a large conveyor belt running up the centre. Here are some videos of them in action: I think that's all I'll say on their design and just let the pictures do the talking. Both rides are on Lego Ideas, and you can find their project pages (with a couple extra pictures) here: Swing Carousel Drop Tower Any and all support would be hugely appreciated (I know 10,000 is pretty unlikely, but it's worth a shot :) Please feel free to give any feedback and constructive criticism - I'm always looking for help and advice on how to improve my MOCing skills. Thanks for looking!
This is my own vision of the best scaled and with better movements carousel. It has all the functionality inherent to this type of attraction, the horses go up and down, the same rotation also causes a tilt. The entire structure rotates, this rotation is done via a motor without the use of wheels / tires. The motor is located outside the structure. For me this is the ideal scale relatively to the two Lego carousel set's, because one of them is huge while the other is too small and has unrealistic movements, my version is a medium version. The structure has 16 segments making it little more difficult to build but a lot more round. If you like this MOC please support it. >> Lego Ideas
