How to Motorize LEGO Fairground Collection Haunted House (10273)

Yesterday’s announcement for the LEGO Fairground Collection Haunted House (10273) had an overwhelming positive response from the community and one of the main features is the Tower of Terror style free-fall ride that is in the back. Of course you can manually crank the lift up but you can also motorize it with the use of the Powered Up app.

On the back of the box, it shows that you’ll need the Powered Up Hub (88009) along with two Medium Motor (88008), and the free app. I assume all of these is to control how fast the lift goes up or down but there’s no information about that in the press release. Note that those parts are not included with the set so you’ll have to purchase them separately to get the full experience. I’m sure some of you will try to integrate the older Power Functions in it as a replacement if it is possible.


LEGO Fairground Collection Haunted House (10273) Designer Video

Today was the big announcement for the LEGO Fairground Collection Haunted House (10273) and in addition, LEGO has also released the designer video for the set. Designers Carl Merriam, Mike Psiaki, Niek van Slagmaat and graphic designer Austin Carlson talk about some of the details in the set. One thing that was interesting to me was that LEGO used a lot of old builds from previous sets and rebuilt them in this one. It’s also cool to see the elevator feature which can also be controlled with the Powered Up app.
