It's so cute
" First off it's smaller than I thought it would be. Too much time with the big Creator rides I think. The Shaker ride is entertaining to play with. The design functions great and like the real thing, I'm sure I'd get a queasy tummy. It was easy to build, I put two of them together, one opposite the other to balance out the motion, and hooked up Power Functions stuff to it. Simple and functional, perfect.
The Bumper Cars have potential. But for the size of the set, they are fine, more than two would be nice. The design of the base was clever and the plates are neat. The booth would look good on a trailer like a carnival would be. The biggest complaint I have is the choice of pink and yellow bumper cars, eww. Not good colors. I'll make more soon and with some M-Tron help, motorize it and see what happens.
As with many Friends sets, the little supplimental things are always well done. I just have to keep from pilfering the 24 teeth gears. "
I would recommend this to a friend!

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. "
