theme park

Post by brickie on Wed 29 Apr 2015, 3:50 pm

As part of  the BrisBricks LEGO train layout for the AMRA model train show in a weeks time, I am trying to build a theme park for one wing of the 'U' shape display.

I have the base for a train station [left foreground] so that visitors can walk across to the park entrance [right foreground].

[You'll have to tilt your head sideways to see what I'm talking about]

I need some ideas as to what sort of theme station to build; platform 9 3/4 or LEGO movie or ???

Any suggestions please?

timmy, I call it "ScreamWorld".

The 'Tower of Terror' is at the rear with the giant drop on the other side.

There will be a few SpongeBob rides.

Ah, ScreamWorld... What would be awesome, but not sure you have the time, bricks or the inclination, but it would be amazing if the train station was in a tunnel, and the entrance to the tunnel was mouth of the mask from the 'Scream' movies...

Dreams aside, if there will be a few SpongeBob rides, maybe a SpongeBob or under the sea theme train station....???

Just throwing around some ideas for you legohappy

Sorry timmy, I am not familiar with that movie.

I want a station that is not the standard railway station but something 'way out'.

I'm working at the moment on making the spongebob pirate ship rock up and down.

I'll post when it is finished.

Ahhh, no worries, they did a bout 7 movies but only the first couple were any good... Here's the mask:



I would love to see an underwater theme railway station, like the back drop of a SpongeBob ep...

Anyway, I look forward to seeing what you come up with... Happy building legoeyeshutlaughing

The 'SpongeBob' monorail is in place and it passes over the track for the 'Tower of Terror'.

The trains are running around the park.

Luckily it was raining today so I could build with LEGO bricks rather than mow the lawn.



I have managed to make the 'SpongeBob' ship rock up and down so all I need now to do is work out is how to build around it to make it look like a sea scene.

Actually timmy it is roughly based on the Spongebob pirate ship set from a few years ago.

It was a very small set so it was modified and supplemented to fit on the hull from an old pirate ship.

I have to add seating in the middle for the visitors to enjoy the ride.

The wonders of the internet; I tried [not very successfully so far] to copy some photos of a fairground ride. If I can't work out a way to motorise it, I may have to spend the weekend turning it by hand.

Hungry? Have a burger at the Krusty Krab while you are between rides at Screamworld.

timmy, some of the parts came from a LEGO 'Krusty Krab' set but this one is a bit bigger and also has a back on it.

The display is 'ready' for the crowds tomorrow at the Brisbane Model Train show.
Just some minor tweaking early in the morning [like forgetting a power cord]. This is a photo down one side of the "u shape" LEGO train display by BrisBricks. The front and other side are spectacular.
If you are in SE Qld, come out to the EKKA grounds and say hello to all the LEGOnians.

Some more photos of the BrisBricks display at AMRA. It was easy to pick out which was the most popular display with the kids.

The city scene:



The countryside:



Coal mining near the port:

ScreamWorld is evolving each building day.

The latest ride is the 'Frozen' sled ride.

"Let it go"
