Kids can recreate the atmosphere of a fun day out with these LEGO amusement park sets. They cover not just the park rides but some of the ancillary activities that add to the fun and thrill of a trip to a funfair or theme park.
The larger sets are best suited to older kids in their early teens, but the smaller kits also cater to kids as young as six.
LEGO Heartlake City Amusement Pier
The Heartlake City Amusement Pier from the LEGO Friends series is a 1251 piece fun set with plenty of detail. The main structure is a roller coaster ride set on a pirate ship. You can play with the ship from both sides and either pretend to be a pirate captain or enjoy the funfair activities going on. Kids can also pretend to be visitors to the park or members of staff.
The swing ride carousel can take three mini-doll figures at a time. You can choose between Chloe, Emma, Olivia, Stephanie, and Zack. Kids can easily make the swing spin, and the chairs fly out by twisting the knob at the top.
The kit features:
- A ticket kiosk.
- Park entrance with turnstile.
- A spin-the-wheel stall with treats to win, like cupcakes and pizza.
- An ice cream booth with cone and toppings.
- Also, there is a lot of small detail around the roller coaster pirate ship and the carousel, plus a palm tree, a couple of skeletons, a bird, and a dolphin.
You'll need two LR 41 1.5 V batteries to power a light in the pirate ship, but there is an initial set in the box.
This toy is big enough for more than one child to have a lot of fun at the same time. Notwithstanding the pirate element, it has a definite bias towards girls with the female figures and the color schemes.
The age range for this building set is eight years and over. Whoever plays with it will have a lot of fun.

LEGO Creator Expert Carousel Kit
This beautiful carousel model is built on a firm base so that you can move it around easily, and it contains a lot of detail.
