LEGO 76058 – Spiderman – Ghost Rider Team Up

Our Review:

This set is pretty cool and really gives you the ability (on a budget) to re-build a cool scene with Spider-Man, Ghostrider, and Hobgoblin! It was a pretty easy and straight forward build. The motorcycle is really cool and I was surprised at how thick and durable the tires were when assembling them! If you have a Marvel Superheroes (Especially Spiderman) fan in the house, this is a great little set to add to their collection!

Great Professional Review

[learn_more caption=”Transcript for Hearing Impaired”]

This is Lego’s Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-up, and I think it’s a pretty cool set. Let me show you why. Ghost Rider’s bike here is quite very flametastic. It was an interesting build. Goes together like not quite anything else I’ve built from Lego. I really like these overlapping elements that ook like scales. They have a set of those in the back here that are leaned back for an extension from the seat back that just barely give them enough room to get there. They use horn elements or claw elements for the handlebars. Big old tire in the back of course gives it plenty of stability so it’s not going to fall over on its own. However, it is able to be turned over a little bit, in turns, just while playing with it. Exhaust down there, the flame elements are great. You can change the angles of the flame elements if you want them to spread out more, make it look wider. I don’t know if that looks like it’s going faster or something or make those go up and the others … Yeah, it might be a good look right there. Also, these can be turned outwards or down, spread things out. You can get a lot of different looks there.

I really like the build of this front section, the fork section of the bike right there. I think it’s folded up. There’s a bunch of hinging that goes on in there with the front section and this top part and these side parts. It all just folds together and makes for a nice, compact but interesting looking … Just kind of sub-assembly there, it’s all angled back. There’s not a lot that you can do with the bike but I just think it looks good and of course it rolls so I think it does everything that it needs to do and it’s supposed to do.

Goblin’s glider of course has to be small to scale to the figure properly so there’s not all that much that could be done with it design-wise. I do like the use of these car wing pieces to give it some extra bulk, does a nice job of getting a little transition into the proper, a little wings there, big oil exhaust on the back looks proper. Then you’ve got two flick fire missiles down below. That’s what these are which look fine. Those have been around for quite some time now and they still work just fine and I think that in this context, it does it’s job.

The corner of Second and Bleeker here is a nicer random side terrain build than it needs to be. I’m very happy about that. A lot of folks could take these elements directly into their own little city layouts or any small diorama or just any kind of display. It just looks good. The streetlight looks good. The street signs themselves look good although they only work from one side, they’re not double-sided. You get these two newspaper dispenser machines which have a sticker on one side of each so there’s no sticker between them but they look nice, especially the one on the left, it’s a pretty perfect build and I appreciate that they’ve got a different design for each so it’s not just a copy. Inside, you get these, which are not printed. You see they have stickers on them but they do give you two different types of newspapers. The trashcan even comes with some trash inside of it with just a piece of discarded vegetable stock and a bone.

All three figures look good to me and they look like they’re compatible, like they belong together. They were translated over from the comic universe versions and appearances of these characters into the Lego look in a similar way. Sometimes I think some Lego artists go for a little bit more detail whereas others stay a little bit more true to the basic and more simplistic, more fun look of Lego. I feel like these three strike a good balance between those two opposite extremes. I do like these cape pieces but I do definitely prefer the cloth ones, the newer, softer cloth ones because they do get crinkled up here pretty easily. Alternate faces, just one for Hobgoblin, which is a good one, it’s a useful one to get a different expression. You can’t take this flame piece off the top of Ghost Rider unfortunately. That’s all glued on there. I think they needed to do that in order to get it nice and close to the sides of his head there gets a little bit thin so it’s glued in quite tightly so it’s secure and little pieces aren’t going to chip off easily.

Other accessories for the figures include the new web piece for Spider-Man which looks very action oriented like it’s just spreading out and it has this really nice little clear piece that’s used to attach to the hand that works well as a hollow stud. On the front of it, we’re going to see a lot of use of that in the future I’m sure. They do include a super jumper piece but they have not redesigned this. I still don’t recommend using it if you want to keep your figures completely intact. It will still cause damage to the backs of the legs where it attaches, just clips on a little bit too tightly. Couple little bits of flame that you could just leave on the ground wherever Ghost Rider has been and of course, Ghost Rider has to have his flaming chain and that’s an element that we already got before. I think [Chimo 00:05:30] was the first theme to get this piece. It’s just a regular chain piece, long length, and transparent orange.

Yep, cool set. Nothing more for me to really say about it. I like pretty much everything here except for the super jumper but that’s already a well-known issue. If you have anything that you would like to say about this set, please do share your thoughts and comments down below. Thank you for watching and thank you for your time. I’ll talk to you again very soon.

The Disney Castle by LEGO – Set 71040 Review & Giveaway (Cinderella’s) – Stop Motion Speed Build Animation 2018

LEGO 71040 – The Disney Castle

Day Before Purchase:

The Disney Castle, set 71040 by LEGO releases tomorrow to us VIP members and we’re so excited to buy it right when the LEGO store opens. At over 4,000 pieces, it’s going to take quite some time to assemble, but we plan to get started right away tomorrow once we have the set in our possession. We hope to post videos on our YouTube channel all along the way in stages! πŸ™‚

Day One of Building:

Wow! This is set is pretty amazing. I would classify this as an expert set and definitely more of a collectors item then a toy, but if you and or kids are up for the build, it is a pretty amazing setting for some great imaginative play for your children and of course us adults who still act like children too haha!

The build:
It is NOT easy to build and will probably take at least several days, even if you are highly experienced. It has over 4,000 pieces and they are not all simple, straightforward pieces. The instructions seriously look like a small novel! So just know ahead of time that this set is going to take a very long time to assemble, but it’s totally worth it and very cool as you begin to construct it.

The characters:
I was honestly shocked that this castle does not come with Cinderella. I’m sure there’s some sort of weird licensing conflict with Disney and LEGO that prevented it. There is another Cinderellas LEGO castle, the “romantic” castle that you may have seen. So maybe they didn’t want to kill sales of that set or something. We are lucky enough to have that castle as well, so we have the Cinderella mini-figure which we can use in addition to the Tinker Bell, Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Donald that you get with this set. Besides the Cinderella mystery, the characters that come with the set are really cool and great additions to our collection!

Today we assembled the entire base of the castle (as seen in our speed build video) and we plan to have the rest of the castle built over the next few days. So far, it’s really cool and has tons of nice details. We will update this review once we have built more of the set or completed it!

Official LEGO Movie/Review:

[learn_more caption=”Transcript for Hearing Impaired”]

Hi, my name is Marcus Bessa, and I’m a Legacy New designer, and you won’t believe where I am right now. It’s Walt Disney world. Hey Mickey, how are you doing? Do you remember me? We met two years ago in Disney land. It’s so great to see you again. I have something really cool to show you guys. Do you know how I can get to Denmark from here, like a short cut or something? Hmm. Yeah? You know? Where?

Just over there? There’s a lake over there. Oh, okay. See you. Whoa. What a journey. Next time, I’ll take a plane. Oh, I forgot the model. Yeah, there you are. This is the Cinderella castle and it actually has over 4,000 bricks. It’s also one of the highest models we’ve ever designed. It has over 74 centimeters. By the way, that’s 29 inches. One of the hardest challenges I had was actually to come up with this cylindric shape that the towers have. Lego bricks are naturally very square, so to replicate that with our bricks was definitely one of the biggest challenges especially in this area here. There’s a lot of repetitive details and small windows that had to go all around the curved towers.

I spent a lot of time, reiterating and creating different versions and trying to find the best way of using the elements. I’m quite happy with the final result. Another thing that I had a hard time with was actually building this tower over here. Not only it’s very steep and very tall, it has a conical shape and it had to be in gold. That’s why I actually had to build a couple of different iterations. These are just some examples of the different things that I tried with different elements to achieve that shape. Eventually, this was a solution that I was happiest with. I think it has some pretty cool texture to it, but now let me show you what’s actually happening on the inside of this model. This is Cinderella castle, but there’s a lot of space and we thought it was a perfect chance for us to bring references to some of the most classic Disney movies.

For instance, we have the flying carpet on the wall from Aladdin, or a reference to Beauty and the Beast with a red rose in the glass case. We also have a reference to Fantasia, a movie very old with an amazing musical score, and it has the dancing brooms with the buckets and they make a mess with water, and Mickey goes crazy. We also have a reference to Snow White with a mirror on the wall and the red poisonous apple. All of these are really cool and we have so much more for you to discover. There’s one thing that I really need to show you. Over here in this secret compartment, we actually have the perfect fairy tale book. It has a special printed cover, and a first page says, ‘Once upon a time’. It’s the perfect start for any fairy tale.

To tell you more about the decorations and all the special parts we have in this model, I’m going to bring you someone also special, one of our graphic designers. Up to you now.

Oh boy. Hi, I’m Austin Carlson, one of the graphic designers who worked on this product, and I would like to show you some of the magic behind the decorations. These decorated elements were provided by Graphic Design Mars who made sure to capture every bit of magic provided in this castle. You can see on the clocks that it’s about five minutes before hitting midnight which is a special detail, especially with Cinderella’s castle. We wanted to make sure we captured it here as well. For you collectors out there, you will notice that there’s a single tile in here, but if you get more than one of them, they combine together. Now, I would like to show you what I provided in the castle.

All the figures start with the magic of sculpting which was provided by [Gita 00:04:04]. Do you recognize this character? If you said Minnie, you’re correct. At the first, we have it sculpted and then we have it shrunk down to one to one scale. You can see how it’s been painted up to show where the split lines in our element molding’s going to be at. Afterwards, we have test samples set out and then sent back in to see how it’s going to be decorated. It’s always a big challenge to make sure that the 2D graphics apply correctly on a 3D surface. There’s sometimes a back and forth between that.

In the end, we have the final product. Look at Minnie, so adorable. An exclusive to this set are these five figures. Oh, there’s Minnie again, and there’s Mickey in his tuxedo outfit, and of course Tinkerbell providing the magic to the castle. She’s exclusive to this set and also has a very specific wig sculpted only for her. Then of course, the two ducks, Donald and Daisy. There’s a lot of love and care put into these figures, and I hope you appreciate them as much as I was able to work on them. Now, back to you Marcus. He’s gone.

Oh boy, I’m starting to like this sort of travelling. You know, when we’re developing products like this, there’s a lot of people collaborating and we had to work with Disney consumer products and it was a really cool experience, but I have a friend here to tell you a little bit about it. It’s Christian. Hey Chris, how are you doing?

Hey Marcus.

Tell us a little bit about what was this experience for you. What was your involvement in it?

It was great. We worked closely with Lego and the parks to insure that we brought the castle to life and it there was on model and we included storytelling.

What was it to get our input when we suggested that we should bring a bit of the references to the different tales to the inside of the castle?

I thought that was a great idea that Lego presented back to us, so we wanted to insure again, that it was true to story, so we worked with our studio content providers like Pixar and the parks to make sure that it was fun.

We’re so happy to have all of those little references. We’re sure that our biggest fans will love those.

I think so, it’s going to look amazing.

Well guys, we hope you’ll enjoy building this model and playing with it, and it was definitely a great experience for all of us to be involved in it. Hope to see you soon.

Here’s a Really Great, Detailed Review:

[learn_more caption=”Transcript for Hearing Impaired”]

Welcome Brick fans to a LEGO Disney Castle Review here on The Brick Show. All right, 71040. That is the Disney Castle. Holy cow, the box is huge. You can see the thickness there. Some of the box are on the back. I got the extra pieces inside called, Disney Castle. As we know, this is Cinderella’s Castle from the Magic Kingdom Theme Park in Disney World, Orlando. A park that, because I’m from Florida, I’m able to go to quite a bit. It has references to so many other things in the Disney Princess World and beyond. We’ve got five manyfigs. Tinkerbell. That is your box again, 4,080 pieces. This retail is for $350 and what an impressive instruction manual.

I mean, that thing will do some damage. All my Batman minifigs just went flying. We’re going to take a close up look. We’re going to show you the castle. Show you the figs and then we’re going to give our thoughts and commentary. Maybe give you some things that we don’t like a whole lot. What a castle. What a set. Let’s look.

Here is your Disney Castle. We’re going to, first, show you the entire thing from top to bottom as we make our way up and then we will spin it just to show you an overview 360 when it goes. I’m spinning it a little bit. You will see the sides of my wall in the background because this is so big. You can’t really help but do that. I mean, we’re only about halfway up right now. As we continue up to our top spire here. The very coned top here, and we are almost here. That’s when it gets a lot of white. A lot of gold, and boom! You can see the top way up there.

As we make our way down from the spire, front of the castle, you can see a little bit closer, some of the elements. Some of the references. There is Tinkerbell. We’re coming up on the clock. When will it strike? Yes, there it is. A printed clock there and some beautiful stained glass-type paneling there. Printed on those tile pieces. It’s two pieces to make one. Our minifigs of Donald, Daisy, Mickey, and Minnie. Just to give you a little glimpse of the bottom area as we turn it around. That’s our main entrance. If you’ve been to Disney World, you’ve probably walked through that little are that Mickey and Minnie have just walked through. You can see how we give it the rounded look.

Those are stickers that you see on these areas and then a lot of mason bricks, a lot of grey mason bricks, an area there that we will show you. Take off here of a lot of open space there in the castle to have some more fun with. Then, this is our bottom portion. This is the area that you walk through. Right here. If you are entering the castle through Fantasyland, I believe, there’s a restaurant right over here at the actual castle in Disney World. We do have some nice statues there, but that is something you will notice. You can walk right through the middle when you are at the park.

This is more like your mid-section and that’s where you see some more tan mason bricks throughout here. The top of a lot of our spires here that were given that cone-look with two, three pieces and then our little small cones at the top. The gold with the flag also gives it a nice look so this is at about a mid-range section. This is where you’re going to find a lot of the rooms in the castle that we will dive in a little closer on these. It’s like two floors here of rooms and then we do have some upper rooms as well throughout.

This is our upper section and you could see we’ve got quite a tower at the top. This is where we have our gold cone look to the top of our tower and then right on the other side of it. Let’s dive in and take a closer look at the rest of the set and our minifigures. Now, we see the castle just in its front section where it is, mainly, the navy blue and the grey. Wanted to show you how the castle is basically in three sections here that we’re mainly going to use and they will add on so you can see back here. This is the next section that we will put on. Then, two, as we make our way over here, we find what is going to go on the top of it. I’m just going to show you from a distance how that looks.

Again, this is the top part here of the bottom section and what we’re going to do is take this piece so when you build it, you build this piece. We’re going to place it right here and there are jumper studs in the back that it fits on that looks as so. This is the angle you’ll recognize so you will take your castle and then take the jumpers. Then just push it down and it does stay pretty nice once you do that. You make sure it’s nice and tight here. One of my critics of this set, I would say one of the few, is this are here is a bit wobbly. You would have to modify the bottom a little bit if you wanted to keep this place to make it sturdy. As far a playability goes, you’re going to want to take this off probably. If you’re kids are going to play with it, take this off, play with it separately. As in, two separate models which would probably even be more fun. If you want it for just display or keep in play like this, you may want to modify the bottom a bit.

Now, we have our mid-section area and we’re going to take our upper area here and this then will fit right here. That holds in place pretty descent too and then you have the rest of your castle and the rest of the cool look there that we have going up, as you can see.

Now, starting with out minifigures, we have the two main ones. The big cheese, Mickey and Minnie. Mickey Mouse in Tuxedo. Love the outfits of both of these. The red with the polka dot for Minnie and, yes, the dress. Then, there is the back of both. You can see, Mickey does have his Tuxedo coming down the back which is a great add on for our Tuxedo-dressed Mickey Mouse. Next stop is, my favorite, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. She does have the purple toe print and then a pink shirt and a purple bow tie. There is the side of both Donald and Daisy and then the back print for both of our ducks.

What’s probably going to be many of you favorites, very desirable, our first ever Tinkerbell with a great hair piece. Nice print. Does have the green printed toes for the slippers and a little cloth piece there too for Tinkerbell. There is the back of Tinkerbell with the blue wings and, yes, holding the green one. She does not have a double-sided face.

We will start at the top of the castle here and work our way down. Our first room that you can see here is a room that does have a little observation area. You could stick Tinkerbell in there but there’s really no need to because she can fly. A minifig can fit in this tower area. Then, right below it, you’re going to see our first reference in Mirror, Mirror on the Wall. You probably see my shirt in the background and now you can see my fingers. This is our reference to Snow White with the red apple in our little glass bowl, which is a nice little build. You’re going to find many of these small little mini builds throughout the set. Then, just below it is our little treasure box and, what do we have inside? Well, what did Snow White find? A scissors, a brush, and a piece of hair, kind of like, a ponytail piece that does fit in there with our scissors.

Just on the other side of where Snow White’s little chest is, we do have a great reference here to many of you, Disney World attendees, will really appreciate. At the end of the night, we have Tinkerbell who flies in on a cable and the colorful fireworks fly from inside of the castle to us, outside, watching. That is what these are. We have nice little pieces that are built and they are of some different colors. You can see, we’ve got some pink. We also have purple. You can just make the fireworks very colorful there for Tinkerbell’s entrance.

We do have some nice detailing here on the rail. As we make our way down here, one of my favorite sections of the castle, I should say, as a [build 00:09:41]. I just stuck Donald there because, on the box, it shows Donald in this bed and it is a beautiful bed. This is a really cool build here on the bed. You can see the headboard. We got a little chest here with a beautiful printed piece here of what looks to be a unikitty tail. Just really nice print on this. Nice, cool little build for this bed in its entirety with some mango colored sheets that you could see a bit better like so … and just a little bit a farther view away.

As we make our way down, again here, just from an upper section, this is a reference to our Mickey Mouse with our Fantasia Magic Mickey, which I believe is the wizard hat. Then, we have our dancing brooms. We got a couple of brooms and the buckets of water. There is nice room to fit some minifigs so you could put Mickey there and put any minifig there. There’s plenty of space, whether you put him there. Put him in the back and then keep adding to it.

Then as we make our way next to that room is a little reference and a cool little build again for out spinning wheel. I’m just going to take this off because it’s easy to do. You can see that and it does just go on the jumper stud and it fits right there. Right next to it, we do have a little area here, where you could put a couple of minifigs. We have Donald on guard there but you could fit two or three minifigs in this area. They do have a little area to stand and view.

As we make our way down below, we have this cool little room which is really like. You can see, we’ve got some shelving with glass bottles and some jars. Right here, you could see some very cool pieces that you got a decent amount of that hold the shelves up and give it a great dΓ©cor look. A butcher knife and a broom on a clip over our wood burning stove. We do have a little barrel here holding a carrot and some sausage and a shovel in the background. Just a lot in this little room. Some pans and pots that are just being stored throughout in this little area. Again, you can fit minifigs pretty decently in this area.

What’s going to be probably many of your favorites, this little area right in the middle of the heart of the castle, just below Mickey’s Fantasia room, is what I’m calling it. We’ve got a little mirror on the table and we’ve got, yes, the rose in our glass case. Great little build here for our curtains, for our drapes that are hanging over the window. Again, that’s just like another little build that we have that is something that you could easily do with just some curve plates and that you see a lot of times at the [inaudible 00:12:43] brick wall.

Another area that’s going to be a lot of your favorite and it looks like it’s a rooftop, and it is. However, it can be removed. Very easy, very simple. What is inside of this little area? Well, I’m going to show you. That is these two wonderful things. There’s one of them. Here is the second that is even better, in my opinion. This is a case with our glass slipper, which is a really cool build. Very basic. You can see it’s a clear cheese slope, a one-by-two, and stud. All just clear pieces that give it the glass slipper and with two windows. It’s then going to go right in here and stay there. This is my favorite. We’ve got the book with a printed castle. What happens when you open it? It does say, Once Upon A Time, again a printed tile. Then you can take both of those, the book and the glass slipper. They stay in there and then you put your rooftop piece back on. Fits and hidden.

Now, as we showed you before, want to show you what it looks like as we do this again even closer. We take off this mid-section which, now that we’ve seen everything on it, we remove. We’re going to just put it to side and this is where we have an area that is mainly archery practice. That’s fun. This is obviously a reference to Merida. We’ve got our bow and arrow. We do have a quiver here. We have three of our edible cinnamon roll, cinnamon bun pieces from the movie and our target practice here.

This is a big area too, that is available once you remove the section of the castle so you could even add on to this and make it your own. Even with the castle piece on it, there is a lot of area if you wanted to remove this and add some of your own too. Whether minifigs whatever. Do have another little observation area here and just gives you a glance, a view of the back side of some of the spires. Then, also as we make our way down here, this is the jumper studs that hold these two-by-two tile that hold the mid-section of the castle on it.

Now, moving to our main section here. Again, this is a section that many of you have probably walked through. This is a big area. Really like this little build here with a lot of plates. Little home plate looking plates and then we do have our statues and then our flames. This is a cool little effect that we have there. We do have a flying carpet on the wall. Our battle, obviously a shout out or reference to Aladdin. Beautiful flower vase next to the column there in the main area. Then this is our main area here of walkthrough. Again, this is the area that you’ve probably gone through from Fantasyland up these steps through the middle of the castle. There is a beautiful chandelier. You can see our minifigs on the other side as we enter towards main street and our circular roundabout area. Where the electrical light parade goes and really many of the parades. You sit, eat popcorn.

On the other side too, we have a clock that also is five minutes before midnight, just like our main clock on the castle. Another statue here. Next to it, we do have some shields. Those are stickers. The logo print that is on our shields that are also hanging on the wall. Here’s just a quick, closer look at our entrance with some of our lamp post. Very nice there. A better look at, not only our clock, but, yes, this printed paneling there on the tile and our printed clock right in the middle of our castle. Then, two, we do have a reference down here to our Princess and the Frog, Tiana, with both frogs and the crown in the background at the side wall area of our castle.

A lot there, as you saw, just as I’m talking to you, I’m looking at it in the background and it is so impressive of a build. It’s one of those things where when you’re at Disney you’re like, “Man, I wish LEGO would make a castle.” We’ve had few castle-like sets over the last few years. This one, obviously, takes the cake. It is massive. It really does justice to our castle at the Magic Kingdom.

Now, the play features, I think, are really good. A few of my negatives before we go to the pros. A couple of my cons are, as I mentioned in the close up, the mid-section detaches pretty easy on jumpers. It is a little wobbly if you’re going to be playing with it. I know my kids will be and they’re going to probably need to take it off. That’s what I would recommend. You would have to modify the bottom in order to make it be a little more firm and not move as much. If the castle moves or if you’re playing with it and you’re up here, it’s going to wobble off pretty easily. Then, the top cone piece that goes on, that’s very cool like that. That actually is a little bit more sturdy even though it’s thinner on that than the mid-section.

Love that we have that area where Merida’s doing the archery in the middle like a big area there for add ons. There’s so many things here that you can add on to with some other Disney Princess stuff that you already have or that you’re going to get.

All in all, this is one of those sets where if you’re a Disney fanatic, you’re going to want it for that reason alone because it’s the Disney Castle. I think, it’s just going to have a lot of hype because of that and it’s a beauty. If you’re a LEGO builder, you’re going to like either way. If you’re not into Disney a whole lot, you may say, “I’m going to spend my money somewhere else.” That makes sense, but you get some great minifigs with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and then the Tinkerbell that’s going to be in very high demand, I would imagine, as it’s the only way to get a Tinkerbell.

All in all, I think, well done for the build. I’ll be on that one little critic I have which is more of a play feature. I mean, if you’re just putting it on the shelf, which is what I’m going to be doing with this one … although, my kids will probably going to get their hands on it, then it’s fine. It doesn’t really matter. If you’re going to be playing with it, just take it off and then you actually have two little players. You could put it on the table each have two big areas to play with, which is probably even better anyway.

There is your Disney Castle, $349. Over 4000 pieces. It is huge. Let’s just take one last look at this magnificent set as we check out. Thanks for watching and we’ll see you guys next time here on The Brick Show.

Lego Friends Amusement Park - Set 41130 Review, Giveaway & Stop Motion Speed Build Animation - Roller Coaster Building Kit
This LEGO set is awesome! We bought this for our soon to be 7 year old daughter. She loves the LEGO Friends show and we were so excited to by this set along with a few of the other sets that go with the Amusement Park Theme!

In regards to the build, BE PREPARED! This set takes a good amount of time to build! I built some of it for her while watching TV at night and she built some herself. In all, we both spent a total of about 3 hours or so building this set and we’re used to building LOTS of LEGO’s. So the master builders out there should be able to build it in a few hours, and newbies will probably need to expect about 4-5 hours of build time.

Some people will be intimidated by the build time, but we personally enjoy the build and see that as part of the joy and challenge of purchasing new LEGO sets!

Even if the build IS intimidating to you, it is SO worth it on this set. Some of the other LEGO sets we’ve built are fun to build, but once they are built they really are only enjoyable if you have the rest of the theme, whatever it may be. But, this set is pretty much the cornerstone of the new 2016 & 2017 Friends theme that was just released and even if it wasn’t it would be awesome all on it’s own!

A quick run-through of the different components:

The roller coaster is really cool! As with most LEGO sets, expect everything to be a little smaller than you imagined, but relative to other LEGO sets, this set is really big, mostly due to the size of the coaster. The coaster glides smoothly and actually sounds a little like a roller coaster!
It’s really cool that the front car on the coaster has a “light brick” in it, which means there is a little headlight on the front car. It is activated when you slide a passenger into the front car, which can be a little troublesome for our 3 year old, but not that hard for our 7 year old. You just have to learn the right angle to activate the light and secure the front passenger.
The cars will also fall off the track pretty easily if bumped to the side or pulled or purchased too quickly. Again, once your child gets the hang of it, they will be able to pull and push the cars without fail. The front car has to little grabber/angled bricks which help with pulling it.

The Ferris wheel is awesome! It spins very easily and is weighted perfectly to be able to spin it fast or slow and simulate the characters walking up the little stairs and getting into each car. Our girls really love that component!

The drop towers is really fun as well! One complaint is that the characters head will hit the very top of the tower if you pull the seats all the way to the top before dropping. I’m going to check again to make sure we put that part together correctly, but it’s not the biggest deal, you just have to stop before you reach the very top. It’s really cool how fast the characters drop and spin. Very realistic!

The other little components like the tables and chairs, popcorn stand, entrance, and ticket counter are really cool and great components for imaginative play.

Overall, we love this set and our kids have been playing with it for days. We can tell that this will be a toy that provides tons of fun for a long time, especially as we purchase the rest of the Amusement Park components and other LEGO Friends sets in the future!

Professional Review #1:

[learn_more caption=”Transcript for Hearing Impaired”]

Hello. Welcome to EllieV Toys. Well, you have been waiting for this. I have been eagerly awaiting this and I finally managed to get my hands on it. It is one of the new summer sets. This is the big one which we’ve all been so excited about. It is the amusement park roller coaster. It’s not just a roller coaster, it is, well, so many features. There are four mini dolls in it and just oodles of stuff. So many things to play with and have fun at the fun fair at the amusement park. Gosh, we’ve got to open it up and I suppose we might build it. What do you think? Should we build it? Yes, of course. That’s why we’re here. Don’t be silly, Ellie.

All right. There are eight bags and a couple of bags of tracks here, aqua colored tracks and an enormously thick book and some shiny psychedelic looking stickers. In the first bag, we have got two of our mini dolls. The first one here is taking shape as Emma. Nothing new here. We’ve seen this outfit before. She looks just like Emma should. She gets a lovely bow for the back of her hair. All dressed up for a summer outing. Looking lovely, Emma, but if you could move over please. Then, we can have a look at Andrea and she’s got some really cute sandals with bows on the top of them. We’ve seen this top too with the music notes on it. Nothing too exciting for these outfits on these girls. Nothing too new, which is a shame. I’d like to see some new outfits on Ellie girlfriends, but you can’t have everything.

We’re about to build a roller coaster. Yay. Look, big hug. They’re very pleased to see each other and they’re incredibly excited because it’s amusement park time. All right girls, if you could move over here please. You can stay excited if you wish. We’ll start on our first piece of the build. We’re going from the beginning of the book and there are some little pieces, little builds that we’re going to tackle before we do the roller coaster. We’re at an amusement park, as well as having lots of fun rides.

It’s very important that you have somewhere to stop and rest and something to nibble on to refresh your energies. We have a hundred dollar note there. We are obviously going to be buying something from here. This is a little cart, a little, hmm I wonder what it’s going to be. This is cute. Its got an opening window panel here that’ll close in on itself and make a display. It looks like it’s popcorn. We’ll put some popcorn in the window. There, that’s very cute. It’s the popcorn cart. I was just wondering whether the popcorn really cost that much that we needed a hundred dollar bill for it, but I suppose we could share everybody at the amusement park some popcorn.

All right and we’ve got a nice red and white striped awning to go over the top and Andrea is checking this out. I don’t think it’s time for snacks yet but girls, you can have a look. We’ll put some wheels on. One on that side and of course we need a matching one for the other side. There, we have a popcorn cart. We cannot actually hold onto that handle because their hands do not turn that way so it is just for display purposes, currently. You can go over and inspect that girls while we build the next little piece.

You can see so far, we have got a grassy area with some little green flowers and a booth is taking shape. Not too many ideas yet. We’ll have to keep building and check it out. Oh, a red and a green so we’ll stop and a go and a cash register. Emma’s in here just checking it out. We’ve got a little counter there with the blue piece. Oh, another hundred dollar bill and some tickets or some tokens, some star tokens and a five dollar coin or dollar. I don’t know what that is yet. We’re building up here. Okay, first of our stickers. This will give us an idea. The tickets, it’s the ticket counter. It might be … I’ve put that sticker on the wrong one. It has to go on the black one. Right, okay, let’s see if I can get that off. Yes, I can. I love the fact that these are pretty durable, these stickers.

Now that is on correct tile, it is a black tile and now we’ve got a couple of photos. The sign that it is a ticket counter needs to be at the front and there is a photo hiding around the back because this is where you can come. Oh, here’s another photo. Oh look, that’s them on the roller coaster with their hair flying out everywhere. This is where you can come to get your tickets and to pick up the photographs that are taken of you while you are on the rides. That’s pretty cool. We’ve got in and an out here with the arrows. Emma’s standing on the in and Andrea is standing on the out. That’s very nice direction showing for us, girls. Of course, we’re going to need a turnstile. This is going to be perfect for a turnstile. There, and who’s going to show us how this works? Very good. Emma, I like it.

They’re both inside here and Emma is now manning the ticket counter. Andrea is checking out finding out how much these tickets cost. How much? She’s going out again. No, she’ll come back in soon. I can tell you now. She can’t resist the amusement park. It’s going to be so much fun. We still have to keep building this ticket counter here, ticket booth. What’s this part? Oh, this parts going to be the roof. This goes up here and we’re obviously going to need a sign on the middle section. Let’s make that. Wow, that’s a super duper big sign and that’s a great sticker. That’s got some of the different rides depicted on it and some very colorful lights here and a great patent which I almost knocked up. There we go. That looks great. Wow, so much color. Your eyes are going to be so tired from all of this color at the end of this.

All right, bag number two. Oh, we’ve got some of the other two mini dolls. The first of these is … Wow, nice outfit. This is Naiah with her little brown freckles and a lovely blonde hair and she’s pleased to see the girls as well. The three of them are going to be the first ones to try out this amusement park. Another big group hug. Group hug. Someone always ends up falling over with a group hug. More like a group tackle. The fourth mini doll, we finally get a boy in here. We’ve got Mathew and he’s dressed in … Well, I think he’s dressed in the uniform. He’s excited too to see everybody but I actually think that Mathew is in charge of all the rides. Just one person in charge of all the rides. They’re all excited. They are going to try it all out. So many hugs, so much jumping up and down and falling over.

Right, four mini dolls and the next part of the build. This is a cute one. We definitely need a rubbish bin so that we can keep some of the rubbish off the ground, of course. We need, first thing when you step in, well, you need to know where you’re going to go, don’t you? We need something that gives us the information. Here’s a little pamphlet of where to find a map of where to find all the rides. That’s one you can pick up and take with you and here is the map sign board. Let’s see, the Ferris wheel, and the leg and the drop thing and the hot dog cart and the roller coaster. Check that out guys. You can investigate where you want to go first. We’re going to go to the roller coaster first. I’m telling you, because that’s what we’re building first.

In fact, this is the very first part of the roller coaster. This is the first of our roller coaster carriages. This is the very front one. I’m quite excited by this because it’s the first Lego friend set to come with a light brick. Check it out. There’s a switch in the back and I don’t know quite how we activate this yet. Let’s keep building and keep figure it out because there’ll be some trick. Oh, I see. When the mini doll slots in the seat, her feet push the light and leave it on. That’s going to be the light at the first of the roller coaster carriages. That is so cool. Oh man, I love that. All right, let’s finish up this carriage, shall we? See how it looks all together. Lots of colors. Look at all those lurid colors. They’re so bright. There. Do we think it’s colorful enough? I think it might be.

We now need some wheels. Excellent. It’s important that we put the wheels in the right way. Look at that. That’s so easy to just slide the mini doll in there. She just sits there so comfortably and the light’s on. That’s so cool, but we need another carriage because it’d be pretty boring if only one of them had a go at a time. There are four carriages all up. I’ll show you the second build, too, because it’s slightly different to the front. Still got lots of colors though. So colorful. Little pink ones on the front and then we’re done when we’ve got the wheels on. That’s super duper cute. That latches on here and now, we’ve got two carriages.

Emma’s in the front, Andrea is behind, but oh, what about Naiah and Mathew? What about them? Stop mocking around in there, girls. We need everybody to be able to have fun. What are you doing, Emma? You cannot stand up in a roller coaster. This is going to end in tears. See? Look, they’re all standing around waiting for it to end in tears. See? You fell out. That’s why you have to sit down in a roller coaster. Here are the other two carriages so everybody can get in and sit down, thank you very much and be safe. We’ll take this for a spin, shall we? It’s cool, it runs really smoothly. It does tend to flip over on the side a bit but that’s what roller coasters are designed to do, aren’t they? There, this is going to be awesome. They are going to need some track.

We are up to bag number three and I knocked over the carriages. Oh dear, everyone is okay, though. The next part. This is not the track yet, as you can see, but we’re getting there. We’re getting there, I promise. We’ve got the roller coaster carriage ready. Let’s get the next part done. Oh, I see what this is. This is where everybody is going to line up. There’s a red and a green so you know when you can go. Everyone can line up while they’re waiting to go on the roller coaster because reckon it’s probably going to be a pretty exciting popular ride here at the amusement park. See? When that barrier gate is up, you can go through and out. This is going to attach somewhere, we’re going to see, but we seem to be building a rocket on the side of it. That’s a bit interesting. Let’s find out why. Oh, some track. Move out of the way, girls. It’s about to get exciting.

We have snapped some of this track together, two flat curvy pieces. Let’s try it out. Let’s make sure everything works the way it should. It does, except now, we’ve run out of track and Mathew’s driving off knocking it. Oh, Mathew has terrible driving and knocking everybody over. Let’s attach this. It comes here on the join so that’s cool. That’s it. The carriages come up here. The roller coaster comes up here and everybody’s waiting and they can hop in there. See? They’re waiting at the barrier, pick it up, and they hop it. You are not standing up in there again, are you? Did nobody learn from Emma’s experience earlier? Obviously not.

Next part. Have you guessed what this might be? I’m very excited. This looks like the control panel. Where is this going to be installed? Oh, on the other side of the join. The controller stands here to stop it and start it and speed it up and make it go slow. That’s pretty cool. Next bit, we’ve got all these little connecting pieces and little obstacles that take place around the roller coaster so we’re going to build them up because they’re really interesting. They also have a theme. Have you noticed the theme yet? The rocket is a really big clue. You’re going to find it out as we go along. Look at that lime green see through piece. That is so funky. I think we’re making a matching piece here. It’s taking shape as a matching piece. Yes it is.

What have we built? We have built little rotating, well, not rotating, opening doors so they’re hinged just in one direction. Where do we put these along the track? Let’s finish them up on the top and then we’ll go and install them on the track and see where they go and how they work. I assume we crashed through them with the roller coaster. Oh, put that one around. Of course, it needs a sign and it has got a … There’s definite space theme here. Have you noticed? I put that sticker on terribly. That’s better now. Definitely a space theme. This is going to connect here, these next two pieces of track. It goes in that way. We can’t go back through them because well, we can if they’re open. It goes right in your [inaudible 00:14:55]. Let’s demonstrate and crash through the barrier gates. Emma’s very excited. We can’t go back. Well, we can. All right, they’re open. Not working well, everything’s falling over, oh no. Naiah’s excited. She obviously had a great time doing that.

Okay, bag number four. This is really fun. Okay, next part. This is a cool, new piece of track that have never seen before. It goes up, up, up, up. I like this so much. If we can put Emma in here, we can go up a little, and fall off the end. It’s obvious we need to connect more pieces here. Poor Emma. Sorry to make you the demonstrator. You keep falling off things. We’re going to connect this over where where where? Over here. That looks good. We need to build more of these little connectory pieces, more of the obstacles along the track. What’s this one? It’s pretty colorful too. It’s the camera. This is so you can take pictures of all the screaming people as they fly past in the roller coaster screaming their heads off, very excited. I’m assuming very excited.

There also is a big flash on it so not only are you going super duper fast but something suddenly will flash you in the face. That’ll be exciting. It’ll add to the excited of the roller coaster. We need to have a mount to put this on by the looks of it. Let’s do that. Very nice and these are going to sit up on the top. There. The roller coaster is going to go through there and this is going to go on the join. Excellent. The camera is just up here, just up here and we’re going to see Mathew. See, and down he would go and see, big flash as you go through, as you’re screaming through. Next piece of track goes up here and I’m going to assume we’re going to need a support for this because there is no way this is going to stay up without being crushed, I think. That’s good, great little support, nice and simple. Mathew is busy flying down off that piece.

Next connecting part, let me see what this one is. This is so exciting. I’m having so much fun. There’s a little earth on that and it spins around and it looks like it hinges on here. It’s going to go on here somewhere. Not convinced that’s the right spot. Maybe on the other side. There, that’s better. As the carriage goes past it, it flicks it. It will hopefully not scare the passengers too much. A nice flat piece of track now. Wow, this is big. Next piece of support to under that bit of elevated track. What is this one? This is colorful with the, oh, it’s crystals. Oh, aren’t they pretty? Maybe like alien landscape crystals. I like that. We might have some for the other side as well. There’s the rock base and the very nice crystally bits. Oh, that’s pretty. Good. They can fly past that in the roller coaster as well. We are getting there. A flat piece along here and it’s going to need a support as well.

We are getting there, another flat piece and another support and do we get another obstacle here? Let’s see. Definitely looks like a place for an obstacle. This is where the major sign board goes. There we go. There is our interstellar moon satellitey-type looking thing with starts around the side. Definitely a great big solar system theme, a space theme. We’re more than half way around now. We must have to be starting to head down again. Another support on that joining part. There we go. Now we’re heading down. Do we get another support? This is our connecting piece. Our final connecting piece. We still need some more support. There’s track there dangling in the air. That one exploded. Another obstacle? Let’s check that out. Looks like it might be something that spins. We need another support for down here, just a weeny one. There, that’s so cute. All right, last obstacle. Let’s see what it does. Oh, very cute. That might be a satellite or a little moon and a rocket, another spaceship. They’re going to spin around. We’re going to put them over here on this. They spin around as it hits them.

All right, let’s try it out. Here we go. We are waiting at the starting gates and we’re going through the barrier there, up, up, up, up, up around past the spinning satellite and the rocket, past the big sign, past the moon crystals, down past the spinning earth. Did you smile for the camera? I hope you did. Wow, that was so fun. Let’s do it again, faster, faster, faster. We’re ready? Go. Up, up, up, up, up and around and around, then, down. Did you smile for the camera that time? Whoa, faster. No, that’s too fast. All right, now I’m just getting really really silly. This is ridiculously long. We have only built the roller coaster so far. Did you know that there are still three more bags to build? In those bags, there is a Ferris wheel, a drop tower and some other really cool cute little fun things for an amusement part.

I’m going to have to make a part two. When it is ready, you will see a little eye on the corner. You can click that and go straight there and there will be a link in the description box underneath this video. Make sure you check back soon for part two of the amusement park roller coaster. It is so much fun. I do hope you enjoy these builds. Make sure that you subscribe so you don’t miss any. Click like and check out some of my other videos while you wait. I’m going to see you again with another one really soon, very very soon.

Professional Review #2:

[learn_more caption=”Transcript for Hearing Impaired”]

Hello, welcome to ellieV Toys. We have already built the roller coaster from the new Lego friends amusement park roller coaster set, but there’s still a Ferris wheel and a drop thingy, what do you call it? A drop tower, and some other really fun amusement part things that we have to build. Let’s get on with it. If you missed the first part you can check it out, there’s an eye in the corner which will give you a link, and the link is also in the description box down the bottom.

Now we are up to bag number five and we are building the first of the next part of this set which is the drop tower, so we’ll see how high it can go and how far these friends are willing to fall. Obviously we’ve got to build it first though. If you didn’t see the first part you won’t know that this set comes with a roller coaster obviously, and four mini dolls, so we have got Emma and Andrea and Nia and Matthew. They are all here at the amusement park waiting ever so patiently for me to get on with finishing building it. In fact, here’s Andrea, she’s coming in insisting that I hurry along a little bit because she would really like to go up and have a fun time on this drop tower. What are we up to? We’re spending time putting a whole heap of flowers down here, that’s very important, some little pink lights on there. We need some more decoration, it’s going to go up the tower, these little flashing lights. There are so many colors in this set, it’s kind of eyeball piercing. It’s bright and it’s exciting and it just makes it really very lively and great.

We have got a camera so that we can take a picture half way down the drop tower with everybody screaming with their faces distorted and looking quite stunned as they go down. I love it, those sort of pictures are always great, aren’t they? Do you have a picture of you half way down an amusement park ride? All right, we’ve got all our height on here, let’s connect them with this black connect-y piece. Now we need another set of lights, flashing lights, colorful flashing lights, they’re going to go up here on the second part of our height area. Here we go, we’ve got our twisty turn-y bit, that’s it’s technical name, I have no idea if it has a technical name, it looks like a big stick of licorice doesn’t it? It’s where we’re going to drop these friends down. They need something to sit on now, which is what we’re building, we need a couple of seats.

Here’s the first one, we’ll give Nia a chance to check it out for size. They’re really just perfectly the engineered, the seats in these, they fit every so snugly, but because it is a ride we need a safety bar here. That’s perfect, it just flicks back. Look, a matching one, we’ll put Andrea in here because she is so keen to go up, and we’ll stick her arms out above it because it wouldn’t very comfortable having them trapped underneath. One faces this way and the other one faces backwards. Awesome! We’ll make sure their safety bars are on and lets go up, up, up, up, up, put them on the top of our stick of yellow licorice, and down, down, down, down, down they went. That’s really super duper fast at the moment, they’ve got no resistance. Let’s try it again, and whee, see that’s way too fast for me. There is something we need to build to trap it in at the top and to add some resistance, so let’s do that.

Okay, here we go, a nice simple little band here will make sure that this slows their descent just that little bit so that they don’t go crashing down at a great rate of knots, so let’s try it now. Oh, hold on, stuck at the top, I pushed them up too high. There we go, now they spin down much more evenly, it just slows it down a bit. Let’s try it again, you know I’m going to be trying this a bizillionty times, because it’s just so fun! That’s so awesome, I really really like that. Okay, what have we got next?

Now, it’s kind of baffling about what this might be, we seem to have pretty much finished our tower, but there are some lights on this. You know what it is, it’s the sign to go on the top. That’s really important, so that we know exactly what it is, we’re going to need a sticker here, so that depicts our drop-y down-y thing, whee, a twisty drop-y down-y thing. We need some more of these bright flashing lights, and that’s great they’re in a pattern, that looks good. We’re going to put this here on this tube and, are we ready? We are going to go up all the way to the top, and there it is. Now we need to connect it all with that, and I don’t know that I’ve done that right but that’s right I’ll have a check on that in a moment, because I want to play with this again. Too high, too high. Are we ready girls? Go! That’s so fun. The fact that it looks like licorice stick makes it even more fun.

All right, it’s Emma’s turn. Emma and Matthew are going to have a go, going to try it out, check it for structural integrity. Go! Whee! How are your stomachs feeling guys? Is it okay? Go! That’s really cool, you know I could actually do that all day, these are really fun, but I won’t. We’re going to open up bag number six because we’ve still got so much building to do, but before we do that I have this big piece that I actually have left over from bag number five, so I had to go back and find out where it went. There we go, so much for structural integrity. The whole thing could have crashed down for want of one brick, not very safe at all Ellie.

Okay, now we need the ground piece for, can you guess? I already know because I’ve told you several times, it’s a Ferris wheel, this is the Ferris wheel. We’ve got so much fabulous engineering to do here to put it together and make sure it’s safe, and I can tell you now that it is just awesome, I love this so so much. Let’s build it up, let’s get all of these pieces in that we need to actually make the Ferris wheel work. I love these safety stripes they’re pretty hilarious, they keep people back from there, they need to step back from there otherwise they’re going to get whapped by the Ferris wheel, and then workplace health and safety is going to come along and close down this amusement park until it is properly built and safe for all the Lego friends. We don’t want that to happen, so everyone needs to stay clear of the safety lines.

Okay, we need to keep building and I need to start being sensible I think. Now, we have got a sticker on this which looks kind of like a hot air balloon, that’s a nice depiction of the gondolas, though they don’t look like hot air balloons at all, but it’s cute, I like it. Over here on the left hand side we have got the control panel, I’ll just try and get this dial on straight, and a lever. The control panel and the lever here for actually controlling the Ferris wheel. We’re going to have to make sure everyone stays back from that too, and very important, we need steps. Here’s the staircase. Where’s that last little black grill piece? There it is. Some steps up so we can get up to the gondolas safely. That’s cool, we need a matching one on the other side. Very nice. Hold on Matthew, we need to install the steps, you’re all trying them out are you? That’s very nice, but you need to get off the steps, thank you. You can stand in here, though probably not for long because we’re going to be putting a Ferris wheel in there soon. Where do these steps go? Over here I think. Currently they are the steps to nowhere. Thanks for demonstrating that Lego friends. That’s not very safe at all.

Let’s start putting in some more structure here, we need one of these technic bits. How does that look? That looks good. We are now starting on the Ferris wheel part itself, so the wheel part. Here we go. Obviously this is going to need to be symmetrical. We’ve got a, how many sides does this have? Six? We have a hexagon which is pretty cool. We need six of these too, the big wheel spokes. They’re such a big bright pink aren’t they? We need six of these light bars, so there’s one, they all match, two, three, how are we going? Four, five, and one more, six. Very nice. They are going to light up the sky these, let’s put them on. Oh, hold on, everything’s snapping off. We need more space. There we go. That’s great, that’s so colorful, it’s like a big carnival of flowers. We’re going to need this to go through the center I think. Let me see. This is going to go up here, we put these on to hold it on, there.

Now, we’re not ready to install it yet because we need a matching one for the other side. Second hexagon, let’s do the same thing again. Well, almost the same, we put the pink spokes on, we put the black pieces on, but we’ve got a different array of lights on this side. We’re just going to put all the black connecting pieces on and then they all just get a single yellow light. There, that goes on the other side. Very nice. What are you doing? No girls no, that’s not safe, you cannot hold onto that. All right. You couldn’t wait for the gondolas could you? You’re going to have to hop off soon, but we’re going to put our connector on, hold it on, and now, once we have got … Is it all ready? I think we’re all ready. Move over everybody. Are those girls still on there? They are aren’t they. Right, you can stay there while we connect this to the actual uprights. Check it out, there we go, we’ve got our spinny wheel. Hop off girls, you’re stopping it from spinning, plus it’s not safe. There, let’s check this out. It looks really good. Now, we also get a little handle to be able to … Look at that, and it just spins so smoothly. Oh man, I am in love with this.

Number seven, bag seven. Let’s build some gondolas shall we? Some little carriages for the friends to travel in. Are they all one seaters or can we pair them up? We’ll have to see. This is taking excellent shape. You can see where we’re going to be connecting it on. We need some more of these technique pieces. This is a much more complicated build than a normal Lego friends set, which isn’t surprising as it is designed for older kids. It doesn’t mean that younger kids can’t do it, it’ll just take a little bit more concentrating I think. Can I get these bits on the top? Maybe a bit of help from Mum. I need some help from Mum. There we go, I can get that on. There we are. There we have one gondola and we shall install … Which way do we go? Their feet go up flat against the flat part and the slanty part is on the back, and that is so cool, they just fit in just perfectly in each of these. Like I said before, they’re so finely engineered. Now we got three of them, that’s magic, I must have built them before.

Here we go, we’ve got Nia, we’ve got Emma, and we’ll put Andrea in the third one. We’ve got three matching ones. Andrea, your hair is not straight, we might need that straight, there we go. All right, let’s put them on. They’re really really easy to install, so to take on and off, because we just click them on to the outside of these blue connectors here. There’s one, and at the moment we’re very bottom heavy, whoa. That’s really very swingy and we just flung Andrea out. Now Nia’s in here and we’re spacing these out evenly. There we go. Let’s give this a whirl, shall we? Hold on. Emma’s so excited. Let’s check it out. Look at that, it’s so balanced it’s just actually spinning very beautifully by itself. This is fun, I could do this for days, this is so soothing. I can’t do it for days, no, I need to stop playing with this because there are some missing gondolas, look, so they must be in bag eight.

Let’s open up bag eight and let’s get the next three gondolas done, shall we? Let me see, is this any different from the others? They’re different colors, that’s nice. This one’s lavender with dark purple and yellow as well. Brilliant, and this one’s got a yellow roof, little yellow umbrella on the top. Let’s see if I have any more success at getting that one in. That’s easier. Now Matthew can go for a ride too. We need two more of these, there we go, three all up, one, two, three. We’re going to put them in between the other ones. Look at that, so much color. Oh, hold on, now we’ve very heavy there, let’s put the rest in. One more at the top to make it evenly balanced. Whoa, that is so awesome! Check it out. Now where’s my handle? Let’s give it a whirl. Quite literally we are giving it a whirl. Round and round and round it goes, and it is just so smooth. Whee! There’s no need to have a hectic ride Lego friends, we’re just going to go nice and gently around, you can have a look at the view from the top, there it is all the way down, that is just super duper cool. We can turn it from the other side, there’s no fancy handle on the other side, but there’s nice big red lever hanging out there, we can turn it from there.

I love that so much. Wow, we’re going to have so much fun with this. Oh no, Matthew’s feeling ill, quick out you hop. Oh gosh, you’d better sit down, here we go, just sit down. If you sit for a while Matthew we might build some of the rest areas with some of the snacks, although you probably don’t feel like a snack at the moment. Now, these are cute too, they’re such a little add on for the set, but you need a snack area at amusement parks. This one’s got an apple and some of these brand new watermelon slice pieces, they are so super cute, I love them. We’re only supposed to fit two in here, but it comes with three so let’s try and get them all in. Actually we won’t, we’ll stick on on here, they’re a single stud we can stick them on there, or I can display it beautifully. They’re so cute, I hope I don’t lose them too quickly. A couple of seats, so come and sit on there Matthew. Who’s going to come and join you? It looks like Emma’s going to come and join you. We’ll see if I can … Oh, look at that, that watermelon slice. Be still my beating heart, that is so gorgeous!

What do we get for the next table? What exciting things are on here. We have a bottle of water and a bottle of soda, and one the new hot-dogs! Check that out, that’s cute too, that’s very very cute. Two seats for here, and we’ll get out Nia and Andrea to sit here and they can argue over who’s going to get the hot-dog. We’ll have to see, maybe they can share it, they could split it. There you have it, that is the entire build. The roller coaster was in part one, the rest of it is here in part two. I tell you what, we might have to send these Lego friends off to visit the amusement park from the very beginning of the day. Shall we see what they do? Let’s go and see.

Here they are at the entrance, they’re buying their ticket to get in. I don’t know what they’re getting the token for, we’ll have to find out. Look here comes Nia, she’s a bit late coming through the turnstile, they are all incredibly excited to be spending the day here at this new amusement park, including Matthew, though Matthew is actually supposed to be working all of these equipments, all of these rides. Emma is investigating where to go, looks like the other girls have already made their mind up. Emma’s popped off to get some popcorn, very nice. Matthew is here to help.

Okay, first stop is at the drop tower. Emma is sitting this one out while she eats her popcorn. Here we go. Nia and Andrea, let’s go, ready, steady, go! That was short, let’s try again. Up you go, and up, up, up, up, up. Can you see the whole of Heart Lake City girls? I think you can. Ready, steady, and drop! Did the camera get a picture? I don’t know whether it did. You’re going to have to try again. Up, up, up, up, not too high. Go! That was a good one, I really like that one. Now, they’ve had a go, so it must be time for Emma, she’s going to pair up here with Matthew. Up they go, up, up, up, up. All right, are you ready? Keep your eyes open, it’s really fun. Whee! That was the best time ever I think.

Okay, off the drop tower, and Nia’s already heading over here to the Ferris wheel. Are you ready? Can you stop the Ferris wheel for us Matthew please? Matthew? Matthew? Uh, Matthew? Excellent, good work. Now Nia is in here and Andrea’s waiting for her gondola to turn up. Here we go, maybe this purple one. No don’t swing it, don’t swing it, everyone will get sick, they’ll feel very very yucky in the tummy. Could you please stop that Matthew? What are you doing? No, Nia’s already in that one, move it around. Goodness gracious, I don’t think he’s had much practice at this, it is a brand new amusement park so I’m not surprised. There we go, Andrea’s in and I assume Emma’s in here somewhere. They seem to be going around and around having a lovely view of Heart Lake City. Around and around. Oh yes, there’s Emma. This is so relaxing after that enormous drop. No! No, no, no, that’s too fast! Quick pull the level again, that’s way too fast. Oh my goodness, how are your stomach’s feeling girls?

Okay, now we’re at the top again, we’re going at a much more sensible speed, that’s much much nicer. Is Emma going to have a bit of a …? No, no stopping at the top. What are you doing? That’s not safe, you cannot be standing on top of the gondolas. Now it’s going backwards. Is there no one here to stop these girls. Poor Matthew is throwing his hands up in the air, and these girls are still riding on top of the gondolas. Do you know what? I don’t think anyone else is here at the amusement park, I think they’ve got free run of it. All right, it’s time to stop for something to eat and to calm down girls and to play on this equipment safely, thank you very much.

Right, where are you off to next? Okay, they know. Wait for Emma. Good, okay, they’re off to the roller coaster. Here’s Matthew, here come the carriages. They’re all lined up here waiting. Let them in. All right, they’re ready to go, lights on. Oh, Matthew’s popped in the back. Everybody’s going, but who’s going to make it work? Well, that’ll be me. Okay, off we go, up, up, up, up, chug, chug, chug, they’ve gone through the crash gates there. Emma’s already a bit excited, they’re ready to go down the drop, they’re ready, down they go, through here. Oh, flashed, I hope they smiled for the camera. They’re back here at the barrier gates. Let’s see this actually move shall we? We ready? Around again, because you are the only people at the amusement park, you might as well enjoy it. Round, round, round, up, up, up, up, up the hill, past the moving satellite-y obstacle-y thing and, go! Back into the barrier. That was awesome fun. You know what, it might be time to come back to … No! No, no, no, that belongs on the track.

Okay, here they are now back here at the entrance booth. They’ve collected their photos from the day. Matthew is busy waving goodbye. Yeah, they’re not leaving yet, because they have got more of this day to go. They’re going to have a great time playing on all the equipment here at the amusement park. We might have to leave them to it, but we’ll come back and visit them again in another video I think. I hope you enjoyed that.
