And here it is: my version of an amusement park ride. Me and my son choose for a scary monster ride at the Haunted House!
Ain't it strange, how people line up for something scary?
Buy your ticket here!
I like my theme park nice & clean...Go on, get in and "enjoy" the ride; MUHUHAHAHAHAAA!!!
The chariot rides on a monorail and then an elevator lifts it up to a glider...
The ride continues!
The large glass windows open just in time to create a crash fear effect.
And back inside...
End of the ride, hope you had a "nice" ride?!
Plates at the sides for several reasons: 1) lack of bricks, 2) plates cover ground faster & 3) The sides of rides like these usually look like crap and it gives that same feel at the inside.
Love the towers. No, I did not forget to add detail above the windows. Those hollow studs like just fine like that.
One last glance at the front,
and the back.
4th scream commentary: My son and I had an excellent time building this out of his bin of grays and blacks. He provided some excellent idea's like the vampire coffins and the huge skull...
Oh, and this was my initial idea for the cathegory, but it somehow was lacking a bit of build...
Aaaaaand, not that you need it at this point, but you've got my vote as well...just to make it a straight sweep in the voting. Fantastic build, Gio! Probably one of the funnest MOCs I've had a chance to see yet in these games. Nicely played, sir!
Gio & Lennaert, You really made this feel like a complete idea, from the entry to the mechanisms to move the "cars". I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation and seeing all the details that went into the ride. You have my vote. ~DK
Very enjoyable -- the coaster carts are great, but the theme of the ride really makes it work. Too bad the Timmy fig didn't get flung to his death due to a cart malfunction ... maybe that's just something I'd do. Good luck with the judges, but this one's pure gold to me!
Man, if I had a nickle for every time I got hit in the face with a cream pie... Great idea Gio! Of course now I have to come up with something else for my Halloween build ;) Good luck with your judges! ~ Chris.
Excellent, this must have been great fun to build and i see a lot of effort has gone into this, did your son help you? It doesn't need to be improved on and i would definately queue up to ride. I wouldn't pay 100 lego tiles to do so though, seems quite pricey ;)
