The set includes amazingly complex trucks, which open up to reveal an amusement park ride, along with all kinds of fun carnival elements.

At the center of the set is one of those spinning scrambler rides, and what’s really cool about it is that it actually turns with a crank. And with the addition of optional LEGO Power Functions motors, you can have it turn automatically. Bits of the rides even glow in the dark. What makes the carnival even more special is how the entire carnival arrives on a pair of trucks.
