While LEGO’s own official Ferris Wheel set stands at a measly 23 inches (60cm) high, this World record holding LEGO Ferris Wheel is a whopping 12 feet (365cm) high. Built by Tomáš Kašpařík, the same builder as brought us the amazing wooden-style LEGO rollercoaster, this creation contains over 40,000 parts and took around 300 hours to build. Amazingly, the ferris wheel is powered by 2 small LEGO Power Functions motors.
If you want to have a go on this massive ride , then Tomáš has taken a video showing the ferris wheel in action and it includes a view from a seat on the ride.
A couple of stills from the video put the size of this LEGO creation into perspective. It was on show at LEGO World Copenhagen and understandably caught the attention of the crowd.
