Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool start for a great theme Overall, a great set. My 11 yo daughter was turned off by the popstar line of Friends and was ready to abandon the theme. But she loves this set as is, and is already planning to replace the green and pink accents on the coaster with more blue and purple to turn it into a bobsled themed ride for the Winter Village. As others have noted, the cars keep falling off the track. That's the only big problem with the set, but it certainly is significant. The drop ride is also fantastic, although a bit short. I suppose making it taller would have compromised its sturdiness. She has had no problem resetting the ride by lifting the seat part straight up and letting the pole spin in place -- much simpler than spinning the seat back up. She will also soon work on motorizing the Ferris wheel. The parts are on order! As a parent of a girl, I'm pleased to see that LEGO included controllers and gauges in this design. It's important to me that my girls sees herself as in control of mechanical things, not just a user or passenger. Can't wait to get her the rest of this line. I might have to get an extra hot dog stand for myself!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor Choice For Track I'll start of with the actual Roller Coaster. The cars are well designed and look good, I modified them so a standard minifig can sit in them. The little play features around the track are neat and well done, I like the loading platform and the gate. The trans bricks are nice addition to my collection since I have no use for the track. The biggest problem is the track. I have the Indiana Jones Temple of Doom set and Joker set with the same track. It's not good for any real drops or angles. You can't attach a motor and chain to make it automatic because of the way the hill parts are designed. That problem and the cars using the new ball joints cause the cars to bind and will lift off of the track while it goes down the hill. I let my 7yr old niece play with it and a few minutes of cars coming off the track she was done with it. Now on to the good stuff. The Ferris Wheel is the best part of the set. I kinda feel like it was the star of it's own set then when they needed to have the big price point set LEGO quickly threw together the coaster around it. It's a fairly easy build and runs quite smooth. I added power functions to it so my niece can start and stop it, control the speed (which is awesome at full power). She plays with this most. I'm going to be modifying a custom ferris wheel with the hub techniques used on this one. The Spinning Tower is interesting. I found it quite fun to play with and did for about an hour watching tv. Niece likes it too, just wishes it was taller. Easy to assemble and operate. Just lift it to the top and let it spin down. The entry gate is well done and creates a nice way to enter the friends park. The small things make up for the coaster track. I would've prefered it in a lower price point to make up for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Entertaining & Fun! Well worth the big price! 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Set This set is amazing! I got it for myself and the people are pretty. I will do a review for the Performance school, and I got TWO ANDREA'S!!!! The carts are very, very difficult to move, and the rails are falling apart. But I love this set and is still very playable. Great Lego Set. Keep it up!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After completing our 1st visit to the Legoland Discovery Center, my 9 YO daughter promptly found this Lego set and begged me to get it for her. Since she is a big fan of the "Friends" themed set, I knew this would provide hours of playing time for her. And I am happy to report I was correct. While I can agree that the roller coaster carts are a little challenging to put back onto the track, I think it is a great tool to teach my daughter patience, and precision or something will not function properly! I do find it rather difficult that the "Spinner" ride has to be spun back up the pole too which tends to pull away from play time. It is great to watch the cart drop, but a slightly tedious process to spin the cart back up to the top again. Truly genius the way Lego utilized a light up brick on the roller coaster to only light up when a Friends figure is properly inserted into the front cart! Needless to say, this set has captured the attention and fascination of my daughter and now is begging me for the Fairground Mixer (10244) and the Ferris Wheel (10247) and the Hot Dog Van (41129).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a great theme for LEGO What a great theme for LEGO. A theme park is definitely something with lots of play value. And on top of it, this set is great looking! The colours of the pieces make this look something that really fits into the LEGO Friends world. This set comes with a variety of rides and all our old LEGO Friends characters from our other sets go constantly on field trips to the park. Well, at least accompanied by our daughter 3 years old. Who by the way got to help us in building the set. Tells something about how easy it was in the end to build it. The ferris wheel is their favourite ride I’m told ;) The theme also expands with separately sold rides, which is great. That way we can increase the life span of the set by buying her small expansions once in a while. If only we could buy more track pieces and supports for the roller coaster. At least we grown-ups like to see a longer and more complex roller coaster. There are also negative things: the stickers to begin with. I think I've never read positive reviews about pieces with stickers. There are a few of them and they aren't that easy to put on straight. The carriages in the roller coaster fall of the track quite easily, and they are quite difficult to put back on the track again. Even for us grown-ups it takes several tries to actually put it back on, because the other end falls of as you try to put the other end back on the track. The LED lightning in the foremost carriage is a nice bonus and received praise. Also the wheels of the ice-cream cart don't spin very well. Luckily it's not a car and doesn't actually need to spin all the time. As a generic note about sets with free standing small separate buildings or booths and such. They tend to just be somewhere when played with, without any specific place on the floor or point in where they are related to other parts. For this I'd like to see, not necessarily a big LEGO plate where they can be attached, but a cardboard playground where every ride has its place. That way the ticket booth is at the entrance and there would be roads that lead to the rides and queue lines could be initially drawn on the board before they were built over by LEGO fences. Hot dog stands could have their place by the roads or in a square with other add-ons that are already sold separately. Anyways, we definitely recommend this to anyone that has kids that play with LEGO :)
