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!!!
