Step 1: The Base

Ok, here we start with the base!

Step 2: The Motor Part 1

Now it's time to make the motor which is inside the bottom.
You could also use a different motor, but my instruction is on the 12V motor.

Step 3: The Motor Part 2

Now you'll do the next part of the motor.

Step 4: The Motor Part 3

Now you'r making the last part of the motor!

Step 5: Add Motor to the Base

Now you add the mtor to the base and connect a bit of the chain as it is later on far to complicated to do so.

Step 6: The Entrance

Now we're making the entrance!

Step 7: The Ring

now it's finally time to make the ring! It consits out of 32 single cabines.

Step 8: Completing the Lower Part

Now you just have to complete the lower part of the lift!

Step 9: The Tower

Now it's time to make the tower. It is just three red rods high.

Step 10: The Lower Top

It's time to make the lower top.

Step 11: The Exit Path

Now it's time to make the exit path.

Step 12: The Far Top

It's finally time to make the far top!

Step 13: The Chain

Now it's time to make the chain. The rest of it (remember, you already atached a bit) has a hole lot of 116 chainlinks.

Step 14: Finished!

Congradulations! You just finished the ring lift! If you have any problems or some feedback, why not leave a comment?

when i have more rollercoaster coaster conectors i make this bu i dont have so much rollercoaster conectors :(

That aren't the roller coaster ones, that are the ones that come with ball machine sets. And other tubing also works. :)
