County Fair
About this creation
Hello!

I just completed a mini fair that has a roller coaster, Ferris Wheel, a motorcycle kiddie ride, food booths and a couple game booths. I entered this in a local Lego contest and won first prize.

Thought I would share it with everyone! Throughout my layout, I hid different animals and characters and had a list for people to look at and find the items. Many of the children really found it to be fun.

The 'roller coaster' consists of 2 monorail motor trains running on a continuous track. The Ferris Wheel is run on 1 red, micro motor and the motorcycle ride is run by a gear reduction motor.

The contest ran for 3.5 hours and all the motors held up to continuous stress and running, except for the micro motor. It starting 'slipping' after 2.5 hours. I gave it a rest and it still works, but cannot turn the Ferris Wheel anymore due to the weight and tension.

Thanks for the feedback Critique! It is a little overcrowded! This was due to the size limitation required for the contest. It took some time to make the monorail one continuous track and as small as possible. Same for the Ferris Wheel. I couldn't make the technic brick's length on the 8 sides any smaller and have them all come back together to form a circle. Then I had to add 'life' to the model to tie everything together. I would have loved to spread this out more and had walls and fencing up around the roller coaster and have more booths, but alas I didn't have enough room. This contest was a peoples' choice, so I put the large blue panels on one end to get children's interest and protect that side of the track because I had a corner spot on the table. Kind of a 'plexy-glass' barrier of sorts.

   Check out the 'watch the hands' shielding for small fingers. I had a corner spot on the table and used the blue panels to protect the trains from 'finger derailment.'
