#10247 LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel Overview

This delightful LEGO Creator Expert model has an iconic elegance that evokes feelings of nostalgia, romance and adventure. The carnival has come to town and the ice-cream vendor is busy serving a long queue of excited customers as they await their first ride on the magical Ferris Wheel that towers above the fairground.

Slowly turn the crank and watch as the Ferris Wheel gracefully lowers the colorful gondolas into position for boarding. Raise the boarding platform with a simple pull of the lever, open the gondola door and help the passengers aboard! Have fun building this elegant model with an authentic charm and magic that will capture your imagination. You can also motorize the Ferris Wheel with the #8883 LEGO Power Functions Medium Motor and #88000 LEGO Power Functions AAA Battery Box (not included).

Real-life Ferris Wheels are always such a great attraction. They look amazing, and it’s fun to ride them too. The #10247 LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel recaptures all the magic and fun of the real thing, and it really encompasses everything LEGO has to offer: a beautiful display set that could stand all on it’s own or be part of a LEGO City display, cheerful colors, fun play features, and more. Really, one of the nicest LEGO sets ever made. And it can be motorized too, which is always fun!

The #10247 LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel will be available directly from LEGO on June 1st, with early access for LEGO VIP members starting in mid-May. Pricing is going to be as follows: US $199.99 – CA $229.99 – DE 179.99€ – UK £149.99 – DK 1499.00 DKK (Euro pricing varies by country). This is an excellent price for a 2,464 piece set! While we are waiting for the release of the LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel you might also like to check out the #10244 LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer, which would be an excellent companion set. I would also suggest getting the LEGO Power Functions parts now, because I expect there is going to be a shortage of them once the LEGO Creator Ferris Wheel gets released. You can find them all at the LEGO Power Functions section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I love this line. I already have a spot picked out for this one. I’m just waiting for them to release a roller coaster.

It’s so wonderful , but to big for the space that I have and I am trying to cut back on my LEGO collection ( has to be done and very hard to do.)


Kim May 3, 2015 at 1:22 PM

I’m surprised by the price. I thought it would be more because of the piece count. As you stated in the article it is a great price per piece. I can’t wait to get this, I’m tempted to buy another power functions motor ahead of time just in case it’s impossible to get like you said.


admin May 3, 2015 at 10:43 PM

Kim, with the Power Function pieces there could very well be a shortage. I expect this set to be very-very popular. Power Functions won’t disappear, or course, if they run out they will restock for sure, but it may be worth picking up a pack before everybody wants one.


BLProductions May 3, 2015 at 2:00 PM

It looks good. It seems like there’s a shortage of red on the wheel though, maybe if the purple carts were made red, that would fix it. Or would it then look too normal? Purple is a rarer color in LEGO. 😐
I really like the trees, though, and I can clearly see the use of the 6-stemmed Stalk piece. And, are those white inverted 1x3x3 arches new parts? They’re on top of the ticket stand (?), and I haven’t found any parts like it in the Brickset database. 😕 Other than those, I don’t see any more new parts, though there must be somewhere on it. I like the minifigs, lots of good parts and printing on them, and all the Technic stuff! Technic is so awesome. 🙂


admin May 3, 2015 at 10:41 PM

Yeah, Jamie mentioned in the designer-video that those arches were new parts. If you watch the video he will show you everything that’s new. But that was pretty much it as far as a brand new part. The rest are just recolors if I remember correctly.


BLProductions May 4, 2015 at 1:21 PM

Oh, I see. I hadn’t watched the designer video before. But yeah, the only other 2015 new part he showed was the 1×1 Beam.
After watching the video, I actually like the Ferris Wheel a lot more. Too bad I won’t be able to get it. 🙁

I watch it on Disney XD. 😉


Tom May 3, 2015 at 3:39 PM

Love this. No purchases this year after my splurge at Christmas (3x MMV, Diagon Alley and a few others).

However I might break my rule for this….. 🙂


admin May 3, 2015 at 10:39 PM

Yeah, this set deserve to break the rules. :mrgreen:


LegoUniverse Bob May 4, 2015 at 8:48 AM

I now have a 7.5% chance of getting this set, rather than just 0%! =P It looks good and, depending on how tall it is, I might fit it right next to me on my desk by replacing my giant bug MOC. But, I’ll probably not get it anyway (my parents and space). Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to getting LEGO sets once we move house (in a few months)…


CVJ May 4, 2015 at 10:38 AM

Man, when I saw this set it went on my “must have list”.


admin May 4, 2015 at 5:15 PM

Yeah, it’s really beautiful, isn’t it? 😛


Legotrooper 91 May 5, 2015 at 12:38 PM

admin May 5, 2015 at 5:14 PM

Yeah, sometimes it’s better to get a few smaller sets than one big one. 🙂
