Lego's New Ferris Wheel Will Make You Nostalgic for the Fairground

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Following up on the Fairground Mixer released last year, Lego has just introduced another set that is sure to make you nostalgic for a childhood spent getting sick on fairground rides. Its new Lego Creator Ferris Wheel is almost two-feet tall and features twelve suspended gondalas capable of taking the ten included minifigs for a magical ride.

Available starting in June from Lego’s online store, the £149.99 set comes with 2,464 pieces including those ten minifigs that vary in age from senior citizens to little kids. The Ferris Wheel itself is powered by a hand-cranked mechanism, but one of Lego’s electric motors and battery packs can be easily swapped in to keep the ride running autonomously.

Each of the twelve colorful gondolas features opening doors and can hold up to three minifigs, meaning there’s room for about 36 riders in total. And to ensure the utmost safety of your minifigs, the Ferris Wheel even features loading ramps that retract so that when the ride is in operation everyone is forced to keep clear. And it doesn’t matter how tall each minifig might be, they’re all welcome to ride. [Lego]
