After cutting off two parallel circles using a giant compass and a chainsaw, the team had to remove the ice in between.

When the gap between the carousel and the rest of the ice on the lake was clear, they were able to rotate the circular block 360 degrees.

A solar-powered outboard motor was used to drive the disc around.

They even leave traces with their snowmobiles to make it clear that the disc is turned from the sky

Janne said: & # 39; When my first ice-cream carousel video went viral in 2017, people around the world started doing it.

& # 39; We need a lot of extra help to complete the project.
