MSN News: “A cool video has emerged of a group of people enjoying a sunny afternoon on a massive ice carousel in Canada. The footage, shot on Monday in Parry Sound, Ontario, shows the 20-metre-wide ice circle rotating on a frozen lake while friends enjoy a drink in the sun. “It took our guests 10 hours of chainsawing the ice into a perfectly shaped circle, an outboard motor was then mounted a few feet within the now-free-floating centre circle” the filmer wrote online. “The free floating circle is initially propelled by pushing paddles/sticks against the fixed ice, once a good momentum is achieved the motor is started and takes over,” “Approximately 20metres across, weighing in at 500,000 lbs, 1 full rotation takes about 2 minutes…totally cool experience!”

In Roihuvuori Helsinki I made an Ice Carousel in the harbour. By night the inhabitants had taken over the show, put up bonfires on the carousel and taken it to themselves. A local store owner provided the sausages for the BBQ.
Roihuvuoressa tein jääkarusellin satamaan. Paikalliset asukkaat olivat innostuneita, paikalla kävi ihmisiä pitkin päivää, ja alueen kauppias tarjosi grilimakkarat. Roihuvuorelaiset itse laittoivat illalla kokon roihuamaan Roihuvuoren jääkarusellille.
‘Hi Janne, nice project and cool video. My 4 year old daugher has been watching the video every night’
‘Most fabulous ever!’
‘Mad scientist on the fly!
I’ve been planning to build an ice carousel for some time, but managed to do it in Lohja just now. I shot a video with aerial views and its gone viral. Total views more than 5 million. Next one will be a 50-meter giant with sauna, PV plant, electric outboard motors, stage and band.
