The LEGO Creator: Ferris Wheel, from LEGO, is a huge, 2,464-piece set, item number 10247, that builds a working Ferris Wheel. The set includes 10 LEGO minifigures with accessories.
The Ferris wheel has 12 cabins with working doors. There's also a ramp and boarding platform that can be raised and lowered by a lever attached to the base. The wheel itself spins using a crank that is built out of LEGO pieces.
This large and colorful set will look great in a LEGO collection or display.
The Ferris Wheel is part of LEGO's Creator series, which are sets intended for older LEGO fans. The box states that it's designed for ages 16 and up. However, we think LEGO fans as young as 10 should be able to build it, especially if they work with an older fan.
The directions are excellent and easy to follow. Set aside plenty of time to complete this project. It took us six hours to complete.
