Ratings & Reviews+

LEGO® Creator Expert® - Ferris Wheel (10247) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 81.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Build (Grab a large base plate) Going to cut to the chase and say that I absolutely love this build. My only gripe (and it is just my opinion) is that there is just something odd about the look/feel of the base. The two green 4x4 plates seem out of place. I understand it is to try to keep the larger green plates in their spot, but it looks off. Also, they really don't do much to keep the finished product from being a bit flimsy. I corrected this by putting a large gray baseplate underneath the entire build which helps to solidify when moving. Now, I'm going to remove those two 4x4 plates. Other than that, great build and worth the money and fun it brings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! This was a fun and challenging set to build. It was a bit tedious to make multiple parts the same way over and over, but that's going to happen when you have twelve cars to build! The immense size of the Ferris wheel is hard to imagine until you put it next to other models. The Parisian Cafe is dwarfed by its height. It is close to a six story Expert grade building. Over all it is an amazing set and would be a great center piece to any carnival or theme park. Roller coaster next maybe?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Play Set Even though this was advertized as 16+, I got this toy for my son's 6th birthday. We built this over the weekend most of the assembly done by me. The fun began for my son after that and I can see him enjoying moving the mini figures around and playing with it. Only 7 months back we went to Disneyland and so he is all too familiar with the concept. What I liked about the set: 1) Very colorful 2) I am a technic fan and haven't invested much in creator. But this set contains some aspects of techniq like the break mechanism. Fans of both technic and creator are likely to like this set very much 3) The way the ferris wheel rotates is itself a cool idea. I have not seen before the idea of using rubberbands to delicately balance and apply right level of pressure on to the ferris wheel to make it rotate. Also, since the tires are much smaller compared to the ferris wheel, the gear reduction is natural. 4) In technic sets, usually making them power function enabled requires making a few alterations. However, doing the same for this set is very easy. No need to pull out lot of pins and parts. Just remove two pieces that are not tight anyway, and put the battery box and the motor. Takes no more than a couple of minutes to do this. And it's worth it to watch the wheel go around smoothly. Note that, once you put the power functions, the hand cranking mechanism becomes very stiff. So, either you can use power functions or remove and use manually. Wish there is a switch to easily toggle between the two so the manual operation is easy. 5) Everything about this set is as realistic as one can get in a 15"x24" set. Cons: 1) When building the wheel, I felt that the parts are prone to come off easily. The wheel parts don't have enough reinforcement which is probably to keep it slender and not too heavy. But that also means it's hard to put them together, especially once both wheels are done and you are trying to combine them and hook it up to the supporting pillars. 2) The gondolas are nice and after building 2 of them, i could memorize making it easy to build the rest fast. However, the rectangular brick at the top below the top cover is not the right piece there. It makes it hard to put the mini figures inside those gondolas. Especially hard for smaller kids. 3) There should have been more mini figures. Common, have you ever seen Ferris wheel operating without full capacity? :). I noticed in the reviews some people complaining that it's repetitive. But what do you expect? It's obvious that one has to make two large similar wheels and then 12 gondolas. Here are a couple of things to watch out for 1) When building the wheels, 6 segments have to be attached. However, the instructions ask you to build 4 and then 2. The two have an extra part and they should be diagonal. So, don't put the 4 segments side-by-side ignoring what's in the diagram. 2) Build the set on a hard smooth surface and keep pressing the bricks gently to make sure the whole build is coming along nice. Same with wheels, once they are done and attached, just rotate and try to press the spokes to ensure the bricks are all tightly joined. 3) Make sure that net mechanism works fine as you go along and not wait till the end. As you build the assembly that allows raising the platform on both sides, it goes way inside and fixing any mistakes will be costly later on. When I have more space it would be fun to use the Mobile Crane MK II and do a repair at the top of the wheel :).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fun Really enjoyed building this and with the added motor and lights was brilliant and found a way to slow the wheel down see video , think it looks more realistic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition I can't wait for the motor, battery and IR receiver to come so I can control this with my trains remote. Awesome build. Looks great along with my trains and modular buildings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun All The Way 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?
