Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

 

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Connecting Micro Cable connectors to Micro Expansion Board Ports

Take extra care when inserting the micro connectors to micro ports of Micro Expansion Boards. Connecting Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Boards is similar to connecting lights and cables to Strip Lights. With the expansion board facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it. Use your fingernail to push the plastic part of the connector to the micro port.

 

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

Caution – Ensure that you connect Micro Bit Lights to Micro Expansion Board Ports ONLY (smaller ports). Do NOT connect them to regular expansion board ports (larger ports) as this will damage the Micro Bit Lights

 

 

 

6.)

Note: If you experience any issues with the lights not working and suspect an issue with a component, please try a different port on the expansion board to verify where the fault lies (with the light or expansion board or effects board). To correct any issues with expansion board ports, please view the section addressing expansion board issues on our online troubleshooting guide.

 

Power Bank Note – If your are using the Light My Bricks USB Power Bank, it is normal for the initial lights installed to turn off automatically after a few minutes. This is due to very low power being consumed from the power bank. You won’t have this issue later on when you connect up more lights.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.


OK, Let’s Begin!


1.) The first thing we will light will be the ticket booth. Start by carefully disconnecting this section and then remove the front ‘Ticket’ sign and disconnect the four trans round tiles from it.

Disconnect the following side sections on the left and right of the Ticket sign and then disconnect the trans round tiles from each side.

2.) Take a Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and place it directly over the far left stud on the left side section. Secure it in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Yellow Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

Reconnect this side section back to the top of the ticket booth ensuring the cable is laid toward the centre as per below.

Take another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and install it to the right side section, securing it in place with a provided LEGO Trans Green Round Plate 1×1.

Reconnect the right section to the top of the ticket booth ensuring the cable is laid toward the centre as per below (toward the left)

To make it easier to install the rest of the lights to the ticket booth, disconnect the roof.

3.) Take another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light and place it over the far left stud of the Ticket sign with the cable facing down. Secure it in place using a provided LEGO Trans Green Round Plate 1×1

Install another Flashing White 15cm Bit Light to the next stud along, securing it in place using a provided LEGO Trans Yellow Round Plate 1×1.

Install another 2x Flashing White 15cm Bit Lights to the next two studs, securing them using another provided Trans Green and Trans Yellow Round Plates 1×1.

4.) Fold the four cables underneath the Ticket sign and then hold the cables in place at the top of the back of the sign. This will allow us to reconnect the sign to the roof ensuring the cables are laid in between studs.

The two centre cables should be laid together in between studs.

Group all the cables together and then twist them around each other all the way to the top to form one larger cable

5.) Take an 8-Port Expansion Board and then connect all six cables to it

Test the flashing lights we have installed by taking the AA Battery Pack and inserting 3x AA Batteries to it. Connect the battery pack cable to a spare port on the expansion board and then turn it ON to verify the flashing lights are working OK

 

If you’re using the USB Power Cable, connect this to the board this instead of the battery pack, and connect the other end to a USB Power Bank or wall adaptor (sold separately) and turn it ON to test the front lights are working OK.

 

Disconnect the battery pack /usb cable from the expansion board and then reconnect the roof to the ticket booth.

Take a 30cm Connecting Cable and connect one end to a spare port on the 8-port expansion board and then connect the other end to a 6-Port Expansion Board

6.) Reconnect the ticket booth back to the roller coaster base, then disconnect the two dark blue tiles on the right of the roof.

Lay the thick cable in between white studs as shown below before reconnecting the dark blue tiles over the top.

Reconnect the roller coaster track and then ensure all cables are pushed down and laying as flat as possible to prevent the roller coaster carriage wheels from getting stuck as it passes.

 

 

7.) Take 2x Adhesive Squares and stick them on the base side of the 8-port Expansion Board. Bring the cable over to the right and then mount the 8-port expansion board on the back of the front Roller Coaster pillar as per below.

Ensure the 30cm Connecting cable is at the lowest point and then hide the cable behind the bin.

Take the 6-port expansion board which is connected to the other end of the 30cm connecting cable and then push it through underneath the stairs behind the roller coaster platform

 

 

8.) We will now install lights underneath the front tracks. First disconnect the following double track section as per below then take out a Multi Colour Light String.

Thread the connector side of the light string underneath the platform through the left side. Pull it out from the left side behind the plat form and then connect it to a spare port on the 6–port expansion board we threaded through in the previous step.

 

Slightly disconnect the three front pillars at the bottom white round 2×2 brick as shown below:

 

9.) Lay the wire in between the 4th and 5th LED along the light string underneath the first pillar. Lay the wire in between studs, then secure it in place by pushing the pillar of white round bricks down over the top.

 

Continue to lay the light string underneath the next pillar of white round bricks in between the 5th and 6th LED on the light string. Secure the light string by pushing down the pillar over the top.

 

Slightly disconnect the next white pillar of white bricks, then lay the light string down underneath in between bricks. Lay the light string up towards the white pillar behind, then secure it by reconnecting the white pillar of round bricks.

 

Neatly lay the cable down toward the side of the light grey bricks as shown below:

 

 

10.) Pull the 6-port expansion board out from underneath behind the platform and then connect another Multi Colour Light String to the next port along.

 

 

Push all the components back underneath the platform until you can just see the second LED on the Light String

 

 

Disconnect the light grey tile along the back and lay the wire in between the 2nd and 3rd LED underneath in between studs. Reconnect the tile over the top

 

Lay the multi colour light string down underneath the first pillar in between the 4th and 5th LED, following the same method as we did for the first multi colour light string.

 

Continue to lay the light string underneath the next pillar, then again underneath the next pillar in between the 9th and 10th LED.

 

 

Bend the end of the light string down toward the front, then neaten up the two multi colour light strings by pushing the wires down along the side of the grey bricks as shown below.

 

 

Reconnect the tracks we removed earlier.

 

 

 

 

11.) We will now install a flashing light to the roller coaster control on the platform. First disconnect this section and then remove the trans red round tile.

Take a Flashing Red 30cm Bit Light and then with the cable facing behind, place it over the white stud. Secure it in place by connecting a provided LEGO Trans Red Round Plate 1×1 over the top. Pull the cable around to the left side and then hide the cable underneath the lever.

Loop the 30cm Connecting Cable over the corner twice and then pull it down to lock it in place.

Pull the cable down to the next horizontal bar corner and loop it around twice.

35.) We will now install strip lights to shine down on the Coaster sign. We will need relocate and use pieces from this set to build a bracket for the strip lights to stick up to.

The first piece we will require will be the White Round 2×2 Brick that sits on top of one of the pillars at the bottom of the rail climb.

Disconnect this piece and then remove the round tile with open stud from the top and then reconnect this directly to the light grey round plate underneath (without the white round 2×2 brick).

36.) Take out the following provided White LEGO pieces that came in this light kit along with the White Round 2×2 Brick we removed earlier:

  • 3x Plates 1×6 (White)
  • 1x Plate 1×4 (White)

Disconnect the following pieces from the top of the Coaster sign

Connect the White Round 2×2 Brick we took out earlier and then reconnect the white round tile with open stud over the top.

Assemble the provided white plates as per below before connecting them to the top of the Coaster sign.

37.) Take 2x White Strip Lights and connect them together using a 5cm Connecting Cable.

Connect the other end of the 30cm connecting cable from step 34 to one of the strip lights then stick both strip lights to the white 1×6 plates we connected on top of the Coaster sign.

Push in the connecting cable between the two strip lights and then tuck the 30cm connecting cable behind right side of the ‘R’.

38.) We will now install the remaining Strip Light to the front of the roller coaster. Take the last White Strip Light and connect a 30cm Connecting Cable to one end.

With the cable facing the left, stick the Strip Light underneath the lower horizontal bar toward the right of the platform.

39.) Loop the connecting cable over the left corner of the bar twice before pulling it behind.

Turn the entire set around so we can access the back side of the platform, then take the cable and thread it down the pillar through the following space.

Thread the cable underneath platform toward the right as shown below and then connect it to the remaining port on the 6-port expansion board underneath.

40.) Turn the entire set back around to the front and then neaten up all the cabling behind the platform by pulling the expansion board all the way out then looping all the cables and then twisting them around each other to bring them all together.

From the back of the set, tuck everything neatly under the platform.

This completes installation of the lights for the Roller Coaster set. We now need to install the remaining components to light up the two roller coaster carriages.


Lighting the Roller Coaster Carriages

1.) Starting with one set, disconnect the three carriages

Take the front carriage and then disassemble pieces as shown below

Take the following front section and then flip it over.

2.) Take 2x Flashing White 15cm Bit Lights and then hold both of them together and then place them both upside down over the inside of the trans yellow 1×2 plate.

Reconnect the black section we disconnected earlier ensuring the cables are laid together in between the studs, then flip this front section over.

Disconnect the black rail and then lay cables underneath in between clips before reconnecting the black rail over the top

3.) Reconnect this section back to the front carriage ensuring the cables are laid down the middle in between studs.

Reconnect remaining sections to the back of the front carriage

4.) Reconnect the middle carriage and then disconnect the following pieces from it.

Position both carriages as per below so that the cables are stretched out before reconnecting the front rail to the middle carriage. This is to ensure there is enough cable slack for the carriages to turn smoothly on the tracks.

5.) Lay the cables down the middle in between studs before reconnecting remaining sections to the back of the middle carriage.

6.) Take the back carriage and disassemble pieces as per below

Rebuild the rail for the back carriage as per below. (Ensure 1×2 plates with clips are flipped around)

7.) Take 2x Flashing White 15cm Bit Lights and hold them together.

Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.


OK, Let’s Begin!


Instructions for installing this kit

1.) All of the lights will be installed to the top of the Carousel. In order to get inside, follow the below images to remove the sections of roof off the carousel:

2.) The first lights we will install will be the 2x Multi-Colour Changing Light Strings. Take one of the light strings and then thread the top of it through the side of one of the the black technic bricks (through the second hole closest to the front).

Continue threading the light string all around the carousel through the holes (second hole closest to the front) of the black technic bricks until you get about half way around.

After threading the first Light String about half way, secure it in place by bending the tip up and then threading back around through the next hole of the black technic brick.

You may have a fair bit of excess light string on the opposite side (connector side). To secure this section in place, pull the end of the light string the opposite way and then thread the light string around and through the 3rd and 4th holes along the black technic brick as per below.

3.) Take a 12-Port Expansion board and connect the light string to the first available port.

4.) Take the second Multi Colour Changing Light String and then thread the top through the same hole we started the first Light String except in the opposite direction.

Continue threading this light string right around the carousel (using the same method we used for the first light string) until you reach the end of the first light string.

Thread the other end of the second light string through the following hole and then pull all the way through and connect to the next available port on the 12-port Expansion Board.

5.) We will now secure the 12-port Expansion Board. Take 2x Adhesive squares and stick them to the back of the expansion board and then mount it to the following position on top of the Carousel.

6.) Take this time to test to ensure the two light strings we have installed so far are working ok when winding the carousel around. Take the AA Battery Pack or USB Cable 30cm and connect it to any of the ports on the expansion board. Turn on the Battery Pack (or Connect the USB Cable to your USB Power Bank). Wind the carousel around and around and ensure the Light Strings are not getting caught with the different animal’s poles.

7.) Take a White Strip Light and then carefully peel off the adhesive backing to allow you to stick onto the base of a provided LEGO 1×6 Plate. Connect a 5cm Connecting Cable to the right port.

Connect the other end of the connecting cable to another White Strip Light (first stick onto LEGO 1×6 Plate).

Continue this process to connect 6x White Strip Lights (using total of five 5cm connecting cables)

Take one more 5cm connecting cable and connect it to the end of one of the White Strip Lights.

8.) Take all 6 Strip Lights over the top of the Carousel and then connect the other end of the 5cm connecting cable to the port on the expansion board second from the left.

Thread all of the strip lights down the spacing which leads below.

9.) Mount the first Strip Light to the top of the Carousel in the following position.

Mount the second strip light to the next section on the right to the following position.

Ensure you mount the strip lights to the exact same position as above

Continue to mount the next 4 strip lights around the top of the carousel ensuring you position them exactly as shown in the below images.

Once all 6 Strip Lights are installed, test that all lights are working OK by connecting back your Battery Pack (or USB cable) to a spare port on the expansion board and turn ‘ON’.

10.) We will now connect lights all around the top of the carousel starting with the first section closest to the 12-port expansion board. First remove the following sections from the top and bottom as per below:

11.) Disconnect the trans yellow LEGO pieces and then take 4x White 15cm Bit Lights and install them by placing them directly over the LEGO studs and then reconnecting the trans yellow LEGO pieces over the top of them to secure them in place. Ensure the cable for each bit light is facing toward the back of the LEGO piece the way you would be reconnecting them.

12.) Reconnect the pieces (with bit lights installed) back to the top of the Carousel ensuring the cable is facing behind.

For the bottom bit lights, thread each cable up the space behind and then pull up from the top.

Connect all 4 cables to the next available ports on the 12-port Expansion board.

13.) We will now move onto connecting lights to the next section to the left. Disconnect top and bottom pieces and then repeat steps 11 and 12 to install another 4x White 15cm Bit Lights.

Ensure you thread the bottom cables up to the top and then connect all 4 cables into the next available ports on the 12-port expansion board keeping the far left port free.

Test that all lights are working OK by connecting back your Battery Pack (or USB cable) to a spare port on the expansion board.

14.) Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and then connect it to the far left port on the 12 port expansion board. Connect the other end of the cable to another 12 Port Expansion board then mount the expansion board to the following position using 2x adhesive squares.

15.) We will now install lights to the next 2 sections to the left. Using the same method we used for the previous lights, install lights to the next 2 sections (8x White 15cm Bit Lights).

Remember to thread the bottom light cables up through to the top

Connect all 8 Bit Light cables to the first available ports on the 12-Port Expansion board (from right to left).

16.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the far left port on the expansion board and then connect the other end to a new 12-port Expansion Board and then mount to the following position using another 2x adhesive squares.

17.) Move onto the next 2 sections and install another 8x White 15cm Bit Lights to these sections before reconnecting them to the top.

17.) Take the 2 lights from the right of the right section of lights and connect them to the remaining 2 ports on the 12-port expansion board to the right.

Connect the remaining 6 lights to the first few ports on the new 12-port expansion board we mounted in step 16.

Test that all lights are working OK by connecting back your Battery Pack (or USB cable) to a spare port on the expansion board.

18.) Move onto the next section of lights on the left and install another 4x White 15cm Bit Lights.

Remember to thread the bottom cables up through to the top.

Connect the 4 cables to the next ports along the 12-port expansion board.

19.) Take a 15cm Connecting Cable and then connect it to the remaining port on the 12 port expansion board. Connect the other end of the cable to a new 12 Port Expansion board then mount the expansion board to the following position using 2x adhesive squares.

20.) Take another 8x White 15cm Bit Lights to install lights to the next 2 sections to the left using the same method we used for previous lights.

Connect all 8 Bit Light cables to the first remaining ports on the new 12-port Expansion Board and then test that all lights are working OK by connecting back your Battery Pack (or USB cable) to a spare port on the expansion board.

21.) Take a 5cm Connecting Cable and then connect it to the far left port on the 12 port expansion board. Connect the other end of the cable to the last remaining 12 Port Expansion board then mount the expansion board to the following position using 2x adhesive squares.

22.) We will now install lights to the 3 remaining sections of the carousel roof. Take the remaining 12x White 15cm Bit Lights and install them to these sections using the same method as we did for previous lights.

First connect the 2 lights from the right section (top and bottom) to the remaining 2 ports on the 12-port expansion board towards the right.

Then connect the remaining 10x Bit Light cables to the last 12-port expansion board.

This completes the installation of lights to the top of the carousel. Yours should look like the below. Don’t be too concerned with the messy cabling as this will all be covered by the carousel roof top.

23.) Take the USB cable or AA Battery Pack and then connect it to the remaining port on the expansion board below. Position your Battery Pack/USB power Bank on top.

24.) Replace the yellow roof top pieces and white pole sections as per below.

Locate where the Battery Pack/USB power cable are and then lift up the flap. Connect up the power bank/AA Battery Pack and place inside before reconnecting the top centre flag piece and remaining white pole sections.

You can leave one of the white pole sections closest to the Battery Pack/USB power bank disconnected to allow for easy powering on/off.


This finally completes installation of the Light My Bricks LEGO Carousel Lighting Kit.

ENJOY!

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.


OK, Let’s Begin!


Turn your Ferris Wheel side on so that you can access the gondolas.

Remove the gondolas by pulling the white technic pieces off the main Ferris Wheel.

Repeat for all gondolas and put them to the side.

Detach the Ferris Wheel from the supporting structure by prying apart the join where the blue technic pins connect the wheel and the support structure.

Pull the Ferris Wheel out of the support structure and put the base and support structure aside.

We want to pull the two sides of the wheel apart. Disconnect the technic axle pieces from their connectors around one side of the wheel. Work around the entire wheel so they they are all disconnected or loose.

There are technic axle pieces towards the centre of the wheel as well. Disconnect these technic axle pieces from their connectors around the same side of the wheel.
Try to keep the centre supporting structure attached on the same side as the technic axle pieces. In this example, I am keeping everything attached to the left half of the wheel and nothing remaining connected to the right half of the wheel.

Pull the two halves of the wheel apart. One side has all the technic axle pieces still attached as well as the centre support pieces.
If yours didn’t come apart neatly, make the necessary changes now.

We are going to work with the right side of the wheel.

Grab one of the Colour Changing Light Strings and thread it through the inner most ring of axle connectors.

Thread the Colour Changing Light String down along the left hand side of one of the light grey axle connectors. The spoke of the wheel should be one that has transparent yellow pieces on the other side.
Pull the Colour Changing Light String through until the black heat wrapped section is near the base and can stand vertically upwards.

Grab the end of the Colour Changing Light String and feed it through the axle connectors again, wrapping it around the brown axle connector piece.

Feed the end of the Colour Changing Light String underneath the outer ring of axle connectors.

Colour Changing Light String wrapped around the axle connector piece.

Pull the Colour Changing Light String through and down the length of the wheel spoke until it has neatly wrapped around the axle connector piece on the inner ring.

Bend the Colour Changing Light String so that it runs at a right angle across the top of the yellow technic bush piece. It runs towards the right hand side across the spoke that has transparent yellow pieces on the other side of it.
Loop the Colour Changing Light String around the spoke and feed it back to your left.
Feed the Colour Changing Light String under the wheel spoke and over the top of the part of the Colour Changing Light String that runs along the length of the spoke.

Carefully pull the Colour Changing Light String to your left until it is wrapped snugly around the yellow technic bush piece.

Run the Colour Changing Light String over the top of the yellow technic bush piece on the next wheel spoke to the left of the one we were just working on.
Wrap the Colour Changing Light String around the yellow technic bush piece and feed it back to your right. As you feed the Colour Changing Light String back, make sure it runs higher (closer to the outer ring) than section that runs from the right spoke to the left spoke.

Fold the Colour Changing Light String down over itself close to the yellow technic bush piece. Run it down along the side of the spoke that has transparent orange pieces on the other side.

Stand the wheel up so that you can access the side with the transparent yellow and orange pieces.
Remove the transparent orange piece on the spoke that has the Colour Changing Light String running down the length of it.

Wrap the Colour Changing Light String around the gap between the third and fourth stud of the white plate piece.
Replace the transparent orange piece.

Place the wheel flat on the table again and rotate it clockwise until the next available technic connector piece on the inner ring of technic connectors is facing you.

Grab another Colour Changing Light String and repeat the steps we used to place the previous light string.
There are six technic connector sections on the inner ring of technic connectors and we are going to wrap a Colour Changing Light String around each of them.

Remember to feed the Colour Changing Light String out down the length of a spoke that has transparent yellow pieces on the other side of it.

When you have finished all six sections, the Ferris Wheel ring will look something like the pictures above.
Put this half of the wheel aside for now.


Grab the other half of the wheel with all the technic axle pieces still attached.
Lift the technic axle pieces at either end of the centre section.

Keep lifting until the centre section is detached from the wheel.

The USB power bank (Not included in this kit) will be attached to the centre section. Your power bank should be small enough to not exceed the length and width of the centre section which is approximately 4.7cm x 12cm.

Grab your USB power bank and rubber bands.

Put the rubber bands around the USB power bank and move them approximately one third of the way down the power bank.
Sit the power bank on top of the centre section.

Pull the rubber bands underneath the middle of the centre section where the round technic pin connectors are.
Pull the rubber bands back over the power bank and left them go.

The power bank should comfortably rest on the centre section.

Grab the 8 port Expansion Board and secure it to the power bank underneath the rubber bands.

Grab the USB Power Adaptor and connect it to the power bank.

Plug the USB Power Adaptor in to the 8 port Expansion Board.

Remove the black technic pin from one side of the centre section.

Grab the half of the Ferris Wheel that has the Colour Changing Light Strings fitted to it. Look for the light grey technic axle in the very centre of the wheel.

Attach the black technic pin from the centre section to the grey technic axle piece.

Reattach the centre section to the black technic pin.

Secure the centre section by reattaching the black technic axle pieces at either end of the centre piece, to the axle connectors on the wheel.

Wrap the wires from the Colour Changing Light Strings around the power bank to take up some of the slack if you wish.

Attach the plugs from the Colour Changing Light Strings to the 8 port Expansion Board.

Remove the black technic pin from the exposed side of the centre section.

Grab the other half of the wheel and attach the black technic pin to the grey axle piece in the centre of the wheel.

Put the wheels back together and prepare to reattach them.

Do your best to line up axle pieces with axle connectors.
Focus on reattaching the centre section section first.

Work around the wheel reattaching all the axle pieces and axle connectors.

Once your wheel is back together, grab the base of the model and prepare to reattach the wheel to the support structure.
Make sure the Colour Changing Light Strings are facing the front of the model.

Lift the wheel in and reattach the technic pins to hold it in place.


Time to grab the three Strip Lights and the 1 x 6 plates if you chose to use them.

If you have the 1 x 6 plates, peel the adhesive backing off the Strip Lights and attach them to the back of the plates.

Grab the 5cm Connecting Cable and connect it to one of the Strip Lights.

Working from the outside and then in, feed the 5cm Connecting Cable end of the Strip Light through the control booth and attach the Strip Light to the roof.

Grab another Strip Light and connect it to the other end of the 5cm Connecting Cable.

Attach the Strip Light to the nearest support structure leg.

Grab the 30cm Connecting Cable and connect it to the other end of the Strip Light that was just attached to the support structure leg.

Towards the top of the support structure legs, you will see a partial technic hole that we will feed the 30cm Connecting Cable through. You will have to push that piece back a fraction so that you can feed the plug of the cable through.

Pull the 30cm Connecting Cable through and then feed it back through the partially available technic hole on the other side.

Pull the 30cm Connecting Cable through and let it hang down.
Grab the last Strip Light.

Attach the 30cm Connecting Cable to the Strip Light and attach the Strip Light to the rear right support structure leg.

Grab the 15cm Connecting Cable.

Connect the 15cm Connecting Cable to the Strip Light attached to the roof of the control booth.

Grab the red and green transparent round 1 x 1 plates.

Remove the red and green transparent round 1 x 1 tiles from the top of the control booth computer.

Grab the Flashing White Bit Lights. Place one of them on top of the far stud on the control booth computer.

Slowly fit the transparent green 1 x 1 plate over the top of the Flashing White Bit Light.

Repeat the procedure for the other Flashing White Bit Light and slowly fit the transparent red 1 x 1 plate over the top.

Remove the light grey bar piece from directly in front of the control booth computer.

Gather the wires together from the Flashing White Bit Lights and the 15cm Connecting Cable.
Hold them in the corner as seen in the picture and replace the light grey bar piece.

Grab the 6 port Expansion Board and the AA Battery Pack.
Connect the AA Battery Pack to the 6 port Expansion Board.

Grab the wires from the Flashing White Bit Lights and the 15cm Connecting Cable and connect them to the 6 port Expansion Board.

Hide the AA Battery Pack and 6 Port Expansion Board in the available space underneath the ramps.

Now all you have to do is reattach your gondolas and you are good to go!

Switch on the AA Battery Pack to light up the bottom of the model.

Switch on / plug in your USB Power Bank to light up the wheel!


Note: A USB Power bank was chosen to power the wheel because it can be recharged in place by running a cable to it.
Having to pull the wheel apart every time you needed to change batteries would have been a pain.
We also wanted to maintain the Ferris Wheel’s ability to spin freely whilst being lit up.

We hope you enjoy this Light Kit!
