    Lots of detail; lots of fun. The Ferris Wheel looks great next to the State Fair Mixer! I can't wait for Lego to release a Roller Coaster, to complete the Fun Zone

    Fun to build and to play with

    This set was a lot of fun to build. The biggest flaw is the amount of repetition. Basically, you're building the same pieces over and over again. The details are amazing, especially the trees. Props to the designer. It is great to displayand, whenever your bored, turn the wheel while listening to carnival music. Overall, I loved it.

    It was a fun build, and it is fun to play with

    I built this during a Saturday night, it was a good time, and the buid was not difficult at all. The build has its repetitive parts, but it is so nice once it is completed that it is worth it. The use of the rubber band for friction is brilliant. Putting the figures in it is not the easiest thing, and you may want to put them in there while building the baskets. This will go really well with the Merry Go Round. Whoever designed this, my hat is off to you.

    Expensive, But Worth It

    This set is long overdue, but worth the wait. It has been 8 years since LEGO has come out with a Ferris wheel. Although this Ferris wheel is more than double the price of the Ferris wheel from 2007, it is more than double the fun (and size). The base of this set is 48x48 studs. That is the same dimension of the large gray baseplate. The size does make it a challenge to place in your LEGO city, but despite its size it is surprisingly easy to move. Its solid design allows you to move this with no concern of it falling apart. The Ferris wheel offers a lot of playability, but beyond that it is just great to look at. The overall look is stunning and a real eye catcher. The set is designed to fit with Power Functions, but unfortunately they are sold separately. No matter, I actually used a speed regulator from the modern 9v train era and it worked beautifully. With the Grand Carousel, Fairground Mixer, and now the Ferris Wheel, perhaps LEGO will come out with a Roller Coaster next? Here’s hoping.
