Moscow Disneyland

Will appear in Moscow “Disneyland” with a local flavor. It will be the largest island in the world.

Children’s amusement Park “dream Island” will be erected on the territory of Nagatinskaya floodplain South of Moscow. It is anticipated that it will be similar to Disneyland but with the national colors. What is our vision of the new Park when it is built, and how much will cost tickets.

Today the construction project of a total area of almost 300 thousand square meters agreed upon, the builders have already went to the site and carrying out preparatory work.

The Park will consist of five themed areas — sports, family, children’s, interactive and directly Park, where there will be gardens and an artificial lake. In Nagatinskaya floodplain will build a cinema with 20 halls (seven will only show cartoons), concert hall for a thousand places, a hotel complex and a children’s sailing school.

There will also be Parking for 3,8 thousand cars (their number is comparable with similar parks in Osaka and Tokyo, which are also located in the city centre). In addition, the Park will be built restaurants, cafes, shops, children’s goods, clothes and other.

The altitude of the mega-attraction — 82 feet. Capacity — 140 passengers. At the opening ceremony set a record which will be entered into the book of Guinness.

Ferris wheel 850 years of Moscow

Ferris wheel – the most famous attraction in Moscow and soon it will not be. I believe that every city should have its own Ferris wheel.

The diameter of the wheel is 70 meters, height — 73 meters. The Ferris wheel was built in 1995 for the 850 anniversary of Moscow and became the highest attraction in Moscow and Eastern Europe. It has 40 passenger cabins, 12 of which are open. Each cabin can accommodate up to 8 passengers, and one turn of the wheel lasts 7 minutes.

During the construction of the wheel, it was the tallest in Europe, but later it surpassed the 90-meter attraction Eurowheel built in the Park of Mirabilandia in the UK, which is located in Ravenna in Italy, and 135-meter London eye in London, open to the public in 2000. The previous record among the Ferris wheels was: 94-metre Great wheel (English). in London, built in 1895 and demolished in 1907, and 100-metre Grande Roue de Paris in Paris, built for the world exhibition of 1900 in Paris and demolished in 1920.

This wheel is no longer the highest in Russia. The tallest Ferris wheel in Russia in the village of Lazarevskoye (the resort district of Sochi), the height of 80 m, open June 30, 2012. In 2004, plans to build a 170-metre wheel Rus-3000, but the project was cancelled. In 2009, the option was considered of building the wheel 180 meters in the Park of Culture, and in 2008-m — 150-foot wheel near Sparrow hills. Continue reading
