A Perfect Creator Model

As soon as I saw the designer video for this product, I just knew that I had to buy it. Unlike the Fairground Mixer, the artwork actually does this model justice, too. And boy what a model it is. The wheel itself wasn't particularly challenging (it was expectedly repetitive however), but the ground work and platform area did require some extra care and attention that would frustrate a younger builder. The functionality is very impressive, with a realistic platform below the wheel that can be raised and lowered with the flick of a lever. In real life, these have the dual purpose of creating ground clearance for the wheel to turn and to prevent visitors from boarding the gondolas at the wrong time. It works like a dream, and is very discretely implemented. Also discreet is the Power Functions area, which has been sectioned off well in case you want to add a motor and battery box. This is a real pleasure, because the battery box doesn't stick out too much like a sore thumb. And if you wanted, you could even stack some green bricks beside it to disguise it as a grass mound. I also really like the mechanism that spins the main wheel. It's driven by two small car wheels with tyres that are used to 'buffer' the rotation, and this creates a very smooth, gliding motion that has absolutely no stuttering. It's actually quite soothing to just sit and turn the crank! Ahhhh... Also noteworthy is the colour scheme. It's almost a polar opposite to the Fairground Mixer, and I think all the better for it. The mixer was a typical carnival attraction that you would expect to look bright and garish (In a good way), but static structures like this can have a more timeless appeal. The colours of this ferris wheel, to me at least, look relaxing but fun at the same time. And indeed, a ferris wheel will be relaxing to some visitors, and perhaps a little 'too' exciting (scary!) for those who don't like heights... 10 minifigures are included, and while Creator sets generally use the most basic off-the-shelf parts you can imagine, this set actually offers a few nice surprises, include two torsos that have previously only been available in Junior sets. This is excellent - I've always had my eye on those tops! Is it worth £149.99? Absolutely. The scale of the model AND the number of bricks justify the price-tag, which is pretty uncommon for LEGO these days. It's also evidence of just how important the Creator line is, particularly the joy it can bring outside of highly specific licensed themes. In addition, the model is far more inspiring than the aforementioned and has only spurred my family on to dream of an entire theme using techniques like those included in this model. It's pure innocent fun. But one thing I will reiterate is that this model really is a monster - read the dimensions carefully before buying!

I purchased this Lego ferris wheel set for my mom (70's) who loves to build Lego sets. The set is cute, however, she found the set very difficult to build as the set was not stable for her. She used wires to make the set stable. She has not this problem with other Lego sets.

Lego creator expert ferris wheel

By Afnan

Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel 10247:

The Ferris wheel is an awesome set, it really stands out in my room and looks stunning. The building experience was great and I didn't get too bored at all. It was quite repetitive though. The only way I would improve this is add a better base plate on the bottom to allow better support and so it doesn't break off half the time.

      Fun All The Way

      By Crube

      from Aberdeen

      Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel 10247:

      I honestly think this is my favourite Lego set! I only really go for the larger or limited sets, and this was so much fun. As some have said, there *is* some repetition, but to be honest in the more 'realistic sets there's always going to be - that's how real life works - and look at some of the truly beautiful and classic sets of recent times (Big Ben, Taj Mahal etc) The wheel itself is technically repetitive, but I barely noticed - making each wheel twice is no hardship, as each is such a large build. The spokes and supports are no hassle as they're so straightforward they take no time at all. The only time the repetition hits is on the gondolas, but how else do you get 12 cars to go round! There's some ingenious building in this set. The gondolas are simple yet effective, the method of getting the wheel to rotate is ingenious, and the mechanism for the loading platforms is ace. There's a couple of moments, when I thought it wasn't going to work, but believe in the instructions, and you'll be absolutely fine. Overall, a fun, at times slightly challenging set. It's fun, bright, clever, good value, fun, large, and did I mention fun?

      Amazing set!

      By itskika

      Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel 10247:

      As a lot of reviewers said, it is indeed an amazing set! It was a lot of fun to build, but the biggest flaw was that there were a lot of repetitions. You're basically building the same thing over and over again - for example the wheel itself, you have to build the arcs twice and the cabines are the same thing, but twelve times. I find the building experience in monuments/modular buildings way more fun than this one. The details are superb, especially the trees and the wheel! Amazing design. Overall, besides the repetitions, loved it.

      Beautiful set for the whole family

      By cwichlo

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about LEGO Creator Expert Ferris Wheel 10247:

      I used to build many fairground rides as I kid, but never managed to create a sturdy ferris wheelâ€"most probably because I focused on train rails (instead of hinges) to construct the wheel itself. Currently, my sons of 3 and 6 are trying their hands at all sorts of fairground projects in Duplo, becoming real experts in rollercoasters, merry-go-rounds and spin 'n' pukes... yet not in ferris wheels! So I wasâ€"or rather: both the three of us wereâ€"more than a bit excited to receive this set as a present. My sons and I turned out building the entire thing together, dividing the (sometimes repetitive) labor in true factory fashion. Since the ferris wheel is built, we have been constantly playing with it, again dividing tasks: one son handles the minifigs (entrance, pay ticket, enter/leave a carriage...), the other the platform and rotating handle, while I'm the amazed beholder (or the dad who has to tell his boys it's time for bed). Need I add that we really love this set, because it's much more than the typical 'Creator Expert' product for AFOLs? The Ferris Wheel is a playful and well invented masterpiece for the whole family. The design is so colorful and filled with nice details (trees, ice-cream stand, operating booth...) you can't keep your eyes (or hands) from it! I wouldn't be surprised to see the Ferris Wheel grow into an all-time classic just like the Grand Carousel. One Big Question to Lego, though: since you gave us the Grand Carousel years ago, the Fairground Mixer in 2014 and the Ferris Wheel in 2015, when will you continue this amazing theme (outside the Friends line)?
