Hello, I'm Brick Rides UK. I'm a massive fan of Lego and love building functioning fairground rides from Lego. Please visit my website, facebook and youtube for more of my creations.

EDITED - 5 November 2017: I've been working on Disney Theme Parks MOCs for quite a while, with designs and redesigns. Below are my MOCs so far - find more on Flickr. Disneyland Entrance Sign: Main Street Transit: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad: Mad Tea Party: Dumbo the Flying Elephant: The Jungle Cruise: Rocket to the Moon: Haunted Mansion (Walt Disney World):
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!!!
kc2dc posted a topic in LEGO TownI love architecture skyline sets, but was not sure what do do with them. They obviously are not the right scale to put them in the city. We just finished having a lego fair in our city and so I thought, wouldn't be cool to build a more permanent amusement park rather than just a fair and base it off the Legoland themeparks! And here we are. Nearing completion on the park. We still have a lot of detail to add, vendors, all the mini fig visitors and workers, the main entrance, parking lot and drop off area and a station for the mono rail ride. But it's coming together and should turn out pretty nice I think.
