We’re massive fans of the Carousel and Ferris Wheel sets, so much so in fact we’d not considered there might be a gap in our fairground collection – how wrong we were. This new Creator Expert set is utterly unbelievable and can be automated and integrated with their Boost kit. Exclusive from LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com, for VIP’s from 16th May and the hoi polloi from 1st June. Even at £299.99 we’re anticipating it’ll not hang around on those shelves for long. An impressive new build at 4,124 pieces it measures over 20” (53cm) high, 34” (88cm) wide and 16” (41cm) deep. It oozes nostaligia, and packed to the beams with detail – a fully functional chain-lift, two trains with low-friction wheels, and a 44-piece track with seven different rail elements. Oh, and there’s sound effects oh and *takes a breath* ticket booth, cotton candy cart, concession stand, height marker, and a covered boarding station complete with opening barriers and a control panel. A total of 11 minifigures with reversible heads, each with the emotions you’d expect from a white knuckle ride – Please Do NOT STAND UP!
